For those who are interested, I just uploaded XOT-Uzg.v3.3.5. A bit earlier than expected but XBMC 12.1 (and 12.2) introduced some streaming issues with the Dutch NOS channels. The issue is a result of a change in online stream handling within XBMC. I hoped for a fix in XBMC 12.2 but that release did not resolve the problem. Not XOT-Uzg.v3 has the option of downloading the stream and then play it locally. This can be enabled via the add-on settings.
