This plugin may prove to be the better way... I've heard talk of XBMC no longer having fileview.. nicely done thank-you

This one doesn't seem to work for me, it just launches IE in fullscreen mode with a "page cannot be found error".

Can Justin.TV links be parsed and broken down using rtmpdump? There are some channels I would really like to see in XBMC (CNN, MSNBC).

Living Room: AppleTV 1st Gen / Broadcom CrystalHD / XBMC 12.3 Frodo on Crystalbuntu 2.0
Bedroom: AppleTV 1st Gen / Broadcom CrystalHD / XBMC 12.3 Frodo on Crystalbuntu 2.0
Home Office: AppleTV 1st Gen / Broadcom CrystalHD / XBMC 12.3 Frodo on Crystalbuntu 2.0
Windows Home Server: Intel Core i3-2100T / 8GB Ram / 32TB / MySQL / StableBit DrivePool on WHS 2011

I have the same problem now too... ustream.tv must have changed something on their end (locked us out?)... I'll post again if I find a work-around.

Hello,

I have problems with nasa hd, too. Did anyone solve it?

Code:
rtmpdump -v -r rtmp://flash86.ustream.tv:1935/ustreamVideo/6540154 playpath=streams/live -y "streams/live app=ustreamVideo/6540154" -W "http://cdn1.ustream.tv/swf/4/viewer.rsl.558.swf -p "http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/nasatv/ustream.html -o test.flv

I tried to modify the example for al jazeera, but it dosn't work.

Thanks in advance.

Bye
MPW

/edit: Hey, I got it! I misparsed the url, here is how it works:

Code:
rtmpdump -v -r rtmp://flash86.ustream.tv:1935/ustreamVideo/6540154 -y "streams/live" -W "http://cdn1.ustream.tv/swf/4/viewer.rsl.558.swf" -p "http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/nasatv/ustream.html" -a "ustreamVideo/6540154" -o test.flv

-o is for the filename if you just want to save it. I think for XBMC you can just leave that option out. As the others did too...

It would be pretty awesome if this could be integrated with the PVR add-on, having the internet live streams show up as channels.

I'm (very slowly) learning how to code, so I can't really offer to help now, but Dushmaniac, who's developing the PVR add-on said he thought it was interesting if there is anyone in this thread willing to give it a shot.

Could someone help me out with this? I just spent the last 3 hours trying to get it to work. Essentially I have site http://watchpinoytv.blogspot.com/2008/12...ve_18.html which streams a Filipino channel.

when I run
Code:
rtmpdump -v -V -r rtmp://173.193.20.156/live -y abscbn -W http://player.longtailvideo.com/player5.3.swf
I get NetConnection.Connect.Rejected

I thought I got the right parameters from the site
Code:
<param name='movie' value='http://player.longtailvideo.com/player5.3.swf'><param name='allowfullscreen' value='true'><param name='allowscriptaccess' value='always'><param name='wmode' value='transparent'><param name='flashvars' value='file=abscbn.sdp&bufferlength=2&streamer=rtmp://173.193.20.156/live&autostart=true&logo.hide=false&stretching=exactfit&logo.link=http://www.yeheytv.com&logo.position=top-left&plugins=sharing-1&sharing.link=http://watchpinoytv.blogspot.com/2008/12/abs-cbn-live_18.html&sharing.code=<iframe src="http://www.yeheytv.com/abscbn2.html" width="600" frameborder="0" height="520" scrolling="no"></iframe> '>
but no dice.

I'm having a problem playing a rtmp stream and I really hope you can help me Smile

I am able to play the stream in XBMC, but it has only sound, no picture. The codec is reported as h264 and I never had a problem with it before.

The strm file content is as follows
Code:
rtmp://cdn01.evolink.net:2007/mts/ playpath=bnt.stream pageURL=http://tv.bnt.bg/ swfUrl=http://tv.bnt.bg/player.swf app=mts/ swfVfy=true live=true subscribe=bnt.stream tcUrl=rtmp://cdn01.evolink.net:2007/mts/ flashver=WIN 10,2,154,25

I can use rtmpdump to open the stream and save it to a file, which I can play in Media player classic perfectly, but won't open in XBMC at all.
Code:
rtmpdump -r "rtmp://cdn01.evolink.net:2007/mts/" -t "rtmp://cdn01.evolink.net:2007/mts/" -a "mts/" -f "WIN 10,2,154,25" -s "http://tv.bnt.bg/player.swf" -p "http://tv.bnt.bg/" -v -y "bnt.stream" -V -o bnt.flv

Also you can find the stream playing via a flash player at http://tv.bnt.bg/

I am using a nightly win32 build, the log from playing the strm file is here.

What am I doing wrong?

This is awesome! I have gotten nearly every feed in the thread to work except CNN and Skynews.

I'd appreciate if any of you could help me get my local channel's feed going. The site is cp24.com and I have Flashblock installed, I right-clicked on the live feed window to get the flash location and I get this:

Code:
http://watch.ctv.ca/news/Flash/player.swf?themeURL=http://watch.ctv.ca/themes/CTV/player/340x267_Black_OneClip.aspx
Even with the output commands listed I don't know how to turn that into a .strm Confused
