that worked in a small way. I went to idesitv.com, played one
of the channels, and got the stream info from some commercial
software I have:

http://wm50.bestmediahost.com/idesitv.co...ate=400000

I pasted this into a file I called "starone.strm"
This playes perfectly in xbmc.
The trouble is, I don't know how to get the stream info
from the browser without using this commercial stream capture
app. It must be simple, maybe someone else will help us.
And, this is only channel-by-channel.

There is also a script development utility which might help:

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

Goodluck

I have made a video plugin. This means unzip to xbmc\plugins\video and then add it as a source.

It was a great way to understand how plugins work and how surprisingly easy it is!

Cheers mate, your plugin works great.

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.

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.)

Great job, Evildude. Very educational. I was confused for a while by there being
a subdirectory of the same name, but I eventually figured it out.

Hi Evildude - awesome work!!! Any chance we could get a list of the movies from bhejafry.net
moviesfromindia.com
rajshri.com

You have to extract the folder into the plugins\video folder. Once there, you have to add it as a source in the Videos page. Go to add source in Videos, choose "Video Plugins", and iDesiTV should be there. Go over that choice, and press Add. Once added, browsing to that source should display a list of channels,and pressing on a channel should bring up a "Watch" item in the list which will open the video.

Great. thanks for your help. Never thought before, we can add video plugins as Video Source. Few links are not working, but others working, so I am all set.

thanks again.

Hi,

Many thanks for the plugin. However the format of the website has changed so the plugin no longer functions.

I hope you have the spare time and will to update this.

Cheers

I have updated the plugin,
http://www.prashantv.com/xbmc/iDesitv.rar

I have only tested it on Windows, not on the xbox (lack of time!). It should work though - the debugging output says it should work.

I still not quite sure how this plugin is setup....I tried extracting this folder 'iDesiTV' to xbmc/plugins/video/

and I can't see any Plugin under Video, Add Source....also, I tried to extract it to the scripts folder - I see the script there but when I click it - it says running for a second and then just stops...am I using an older version of XBMC? Where can I check from? and if it is old, where can I get the newer version from?

What am I missing? Please advise.

Regards,

K
