The site itself is not working for half the channels, but for the other channels (B4U movies / music for example) show up fine in XBMC and play fine too.
Is there any better sites work more consistently?

I am looking for a solution on this too. You can easily find out the streams using firefox extensions (I use download embedded) to find the streams from bhejfry.net (they mirror stuff from iDesiTv). I have already made a list of some of the streams. Can anyone post an easier solution, please?
thank you - the_optimist - 2008-01-16 19:15
for the tip about download embedded. I used it to get the following stream url
I put this url in VideoLAN's VLC and it played perfectly.
This means that xbmc will play the stream if it is placed
in a file with the suffix .strm. It would be easy to make
such a file for each of the approx ten channels.
Unfortunately, it may turn out that the urls change from time to time.
Parsing the web page would likely be possible in python, but I haven't yet
learned python programming. Yet. Can't be that hard ...

For what is worth, all I had to do was click VIEW SOURCE once the php link is opened in a browser. I was then able to get the URL of the actual stream within the source code. Placed is as a strm file as posted in this thread..Worked just fine...
Here is a url I saw within the source code for starplus

http://rapidshare.com/files/85758962/iDesiTV.rar.html I made a bunch of m3u files, just upload them into your videos folder, and open them like a regular video file. Some of the channels don't work because, the source is dead probably. Its easy to make these kind of files, all you do is open the file in notepad and change the source links.

You easily can get the stream / url using Firefox and then view source.
with IE this is hidden.

Thanks for these. The B4U channels didn't work when I tried them but they do work in EvilDude's plugin.

Just cleaned up the script a little bit (better regular expression to get a list of channels.)
Get it here,
