I think I got it but need some help understanding.

rtmp://feed.zapcommunication.netdna-cdn.com/live/47175/live003 <--- this link works as a n/w stream in VLC and as an strm/m3u file in XBMC.

why and when do we have to use a URL in this format [rtmp://feed.zapcommunication.netdna-cdn.com/live/47175 playpath=live003 swfUrl="http://releases.flowplayer.org/swf/flowplayer-3.2.7.swf" pageURL="http://www.uecf.net/bibletv.htm" swfVfy=true live=true]?

The stream is found at http://www.aatw.com/watch-live/?channel=clubland I have tried copying this into a strm file but am not sure I'm loading it from the correct place or if I have missed arguments or anything out. I am totally new to all this and would be so grateful for the chance to learn about this subject.

Many Thanks in Advance,

Doozeman

this is the good link but everytime you open their web page you generate new token , so technically you neeed to use URL Helper3,42 to get link, use fresh token and implement this link to xbmc and Clubland will work,

rtmp://wos.cr2.streamzilla.xlcdn.com/live/_definst_/ playpath=sz=AATW=clublandtv?token=3d58829016731e9092fbf2e3d17999ca&time=53bb75e9 swfUrl=http://www.aatw.com/player/mediaplayer.swf pageUrl=http://www.aatw.com/watch-live/?channel=clubland

Hi all.
I am sorry if my question was already answered before, unfortunately these are very long threads and it's easy to miss something.

Is there anywhere a comparative list of the different methods/add-ons to watch live TV on xbmc?
I am just a regular user, and I found so references to s many different methods and it's hard for me to choose without having to try them all. As I wouldn't like to re-invent the wheel, do you know if anyone ever put together such a comparative table?

I saw: filmon, pseudotv, on-tapp.tv, FTV, tvcatchup, mashup, Navi-X, etc, plus of course the approach you are describing in this thread...

I would like to know some standard facts, like:
  • list of channels available
  • EPG
  • stability/reliability
  • possibility to add additional channels
  • any geo limitation
  • ...

or, if such table does not exisit, can you suggest any wiki where I can start such page?

thanks!!

Certainly not the XBMC wiki if you want to include navix and/or mashup.

so do you have any suggestion? I would surely like to include all possible addons/methods, at least for information purpose.

Any other high traffic site you can suggest?

Ask where you got them from. It wasn't from the XBMC Foundation or any of its sites which end in xbmc.org.

Hi, I've tried to follow the procedure above to create a stream, it looks to me like it is a simple http stream, but the .strm file I created did not play well.

Can you guide me please?

The live player is the following: http://www.tvm.com.mt/live/

And the stream URL is http://tvm.23video.com/v.ihtml/player.ht...autoPlay=1

Since it's just an HTTP stream, I simply added the URL into the .strm file. Did I miss something?

Thanks in advance

I have read through this thread a few times but I am having trouble adding my church live web stream into xbmc.
The webstream url is http://www.nlacwebcast.org/live.html

When i view source this is what i get.
Code:
<html>
<head>
<title>
NLAC Webcast
</title>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://nlacwebcast.org/flowplayer-3.2.6.min.js"></script>
</head>
<body>
<a style="display:block;width:520px;height:385px" id="player"></a>
<script>
    flowplayer("player", "http://nlacwebcast.org/flowplayer-3.2.7.swf", {

        clip: {
            url: 'livestream',
            live: 'true',
            provider: 'rtmp'
        },

        // streaming plugins are configured under the plugins node
        plugins: {

            rtmp: {
                url: 'http://nlacwebcast.org/flowplayer.rtmp-3.2.3.swf',

                netConnectionUrl:
                    'rtmp://stream.s14.cpanelservices.com/nlaclive/'
            }
        }
    });
</script>
</body>
</html>

I tried converting it to:
Code:
rtmp://stream.s14.cpanelservices.com/nlaclive/
swfUrl="http://nlacwebcast.org/flowplayer.rtmp-3.2.3.swf"
pageURL="www.nlacwebcast.org/live.html" swfVfy=true live=true

unfortunalty the .strm file will not play
I am running xbmc gothem in openelec.
any help will be greatly appreciated.
