Lightbulb  [REQUEST] Watchindia.tv plugin or script (Indian TV Premium Channels Streams)?
Post: #1
Hello all,

I am from india and i live in the US, but i really miss India and all the tv channels from there. So i searched online and found watchindia.tv
it is a LEGAL PAID Site which streams indian channels live. I really like it and it is much cheaper than d!$hnetwork, and less hassle than those boxes that descramble channels(C00lS@t), I am really happy with it and the quality is pretty good. But i am having one problem I cant integrate it into XBMC which is what i use for everything else. Is there a way i can do this. I have my netflix account in XBMC with Playon. I really want to be able to get this integrated. the site uses silverlight (i think) and requires a username and password to access the channels. Again this site is 100% legal, I did my research before i joined. PLEASE PLEASE can any one suggest how i can get this into my xbmc system?

Question  Indian TV Channels Streaming...
Post: #2
Hi,

I run XBMC Atlantis over my Original XBox.

I've pretty much been stuck on the same issue. I subscribe to an Indian site (http://www.channellive.tv) which provides authenticated streams watchable on ie/WMP10.


Regarding, I am looking for answers for the following questions:

1. Does the mplayer (bundled with XBMC Atlantis) support streaming authenticated streams, and if yes how do we pass credentials thru a script/ plugin.

2. does mplayer support RTMP (flash-based) streams, my justin.tv plugin is able to show me the list of channels available, but fails while trying to play a channel (but Youtube works)...

Awaiting replies.

Thanks
Mohan
P.S:
I've been using URLSnooper to snoop for the stream path (mms://****), and send it to XBMC using the Firefox plugin XBMCFox. It works intermittently.

I coded my own plugin to stream channels from the site http://www.idesitv.com, let me know if anyone is interested in getting it, and I could help.

Hi,

I've uploaded the Zip file containing the IDesiTV plugin. You can download it here (http://www.mediafire.com/?uzwnj1mnnyq). It has been working fine so far for me. Let me know if you have issues.

Thanks
Mohan

Voinage,

Thanks for the offer. I've PM-ed you with the details. I am currently working on the site http://www.techsatish.tv, lets see how this plays out.

I am unable to stream or play Flash based content on my XBox (although Youtube seems to be working) Justin.tv fails, any clues.

Thanks
Mohan

it failed for me when i tried it on windows AEON skin. I m sure it may be me since i started using xbmc after a very long time again. i took the zip and extracted to scripts folder - anything else i need to do?

when i run it after some time i says script failed.
