[REQUEST] Mediaset Video Plugin (Italian for Italy)? - lcapriotti - 2008-12-03 12:36
Anyone able to find the way to write a plugin for the italian mediaset video site?
I tried some basic tests but I was not able to have a working schema nor to receive any valid video streams
Any help appreciated!

I looked very quickly to the website you have mentionned, and I think I found information which could be useful for writing your script.
Uing http header (add on firefox) I found those XML:
- Liste of video :
You can see entries like:
And one xml for a s[ecific video which includes video links:
So if I use the entry above: scherziaparte/2007/07/20/108 and mix it with the video URL, I get the xml URL:
Here it is, the video URL is in it!
I think it is a good starting point, I hope it help.

maybe I got it wrong, but I can't stream the video with the URL built as instructed.
Did you try to open the video streams (wmv or flv)?
is not is video stream!

Yes you're right, I tried and it doesn't work.
You have to dig and look what are the request sent using http header for instance.
The issue could be also the use of cookie which return differene thing depending on what is defined in the cookie.
Sorry I cannot spent too much time on it right know, I will try to see if I can figure it out.

Just olling the answer from the server on:
Perhaps http://www.video.mediaset.it/video/ is not valid for video path ...

if there is no FLV link use: mms://mediaset.wmod.llnwd.net/a2695/e1/[wmvurl]
if there is a FLV link, it gets kinda weird. the base url is:
but then the actual video url is different than what is listed on the XML page.
have fun and good luck

Well done , I wasn't able to find those damn URLs.
May I asked how you find it? It would help me to improved my investigation technique. Nothing came throw the header, how did you get those?
I think you have the minimum for starting now, good luck!

And to be honest, I probably wouldn't have ever looked at this if it weren't for the challenge in the title
