jmcdonnell Wrote:Hi guys, a great plugin but it is not working for me today either - does anyone know how or where to change the channel XML source URL? I can't figure it out as the add-on has no settings. Cheers all, when it works it is perfect
You have to edit the default.py file in plugin.video.rtmpGUI - use:
BASE = 'http://xbmc.jonakcomputers.com/list.xml'
Location of the plugin directory will depend on your system.

Great, thanks for the quick response - I will prepare an alternate default.py file then incase it goes down so it is easy to swap between the 2 - do I simply need to restart xbmc for the changed file to be picked up, or is exiting and rendering the plugin going to be enough?
This a lot for your help.

Just restart the plugin.

castalla Wrote:Hmmm .... not interested in sport either! Sorry.
Hmmm .... I'm not interested in itv, sky news or channel 4 hd
I want the "Formula 1 2012 Championship" (cant get sky in our listed building) but that's why live streams is the better solution for this as we can section things off and then you'll only need to access the sections you want to see.
Also, if you just want tv stations why not just use TVCatchup Plugin? It has all uk free view channels (live streaming at great quality and is never/very rarely down) plus It has extra channels that are not available in my area.... Totally legal, has a guide, flawless Xbmc plugin and very well supported.... Then just switch to live streams /rtmp when you want something else...

castalla Wrote:I've encountered a strange problem with rtmpgui - if you add a channel to Favourites, then it won't play. Very strange.
Could anyone show me how to add one rtmpGUI's channel to Favourites? I am using Apple TV2 + XBMC 11.
- castalla - 2012-01-31 23:18
It's uk only.

Plus some of these streams are geolocked anyway are they not? I'm sure they are, as some non local channels don't work for me (requiring alternative methods).

BlueCop Wrote:I wrote a scanner for tv sector playpaths because all their streams are in HD. I won't detail all the parameters but it was easy to make a table of known station and sort by playpath. The patterns emerged quickly and I just tried to replicate the patterns. I ended up with several hundred playpaths scanned. It found many stations I haven't seen posted anywhere.If you plan on changing the format of the XML file then I ask that you stop using the name rtmpGUI for the name of the plugin.

I didn't name the thing. I posted the code in a request for a plugin thread.
but why do you ask that it be renamed?
This should all really be over at xbmchub. this breaks forum fules.

whether it breaks them or not is debateable.. it's just a tool for playing online streams. There's a 50/50 chance for those streams being legit!
I've been manually scraping tvsector myself and have bout 60 channels - looking forward to see what you got

I don't think live streams has been booted over to the hub yet either. I think they are leaving it here u til farther notice as its semi legal...

macf1an and PatrickBateman
I think it is a clear violation. It isn't letting your add your own content. It gives you direct access to a list of many pirated video streams. It isn't like it is letting your add your own like LiveStreams. that is the difference.

that is my whole point. This violates the rules.
Live Streams does not because you add your own. I was offering to write a program to convert formats for people but none seem interested.
I wrote this to help someone out. I should have just wrote something to convert to livestreams format to begin with.
