AJ, Can you please have a look! Its not working with chrome anymore! working with FireFox but not with Chrome.

It works fine if you follow the instructions and install the plugin first. The xbmc webserver port does not matter. I have a raspberry pi with Openelec and the webserver port 80 running. The port of the playit service is set to 8100 in both systems (the xbmc plugin and the browser plugin) and it just works fine. The default port of 8181 does somehow cause problems.
