Thanks for trying again, i just tried but still error im afraid - i get the below when updating

by the way although the chip set / CoreELEC is x64 version, it appears to be running x86 Kodi as i see the below printed on startup...

Update! it seems i got my zips mixed up, too many pvr.iptvsimple zips (i tried lots of versions looking for something that will record, but more importantly for me pause Live TV!') Anyhow i got it installed and running and i now see a recording Icon yey!!!

unfortunately i cant get it to record, i created a folder that Kodi has write privileges to and pointed to it in the addon config, but when i try to record it just blinks for a moment and does not record.  I get the below in kodi log

'Path to ffmpeg binary is not set. Please change addon configuration'

i looked in config, and the only options i see to set paths are;

'path to avconv binary'
'path to ffprobe binary'

i have no idea what i should set or what the paths should be. i believe ffmpeg is in CoreELEC, and i also installed the Libre/CoreELEC addon 'ffmpeg tools' that i believe includes ffprobe, but not sure what i do next.

do you know what i should be putting in the needed fields in config, or how i ascertain what the correct paths are? i can get in with putty on ssh if there are commands i could run that may tell me the paths?

Thanks!!!   
So, after some googling i was able to find the paths, using the 'which' command. paths below

/storage/.kodi/addons/tools.ffmpeg-tools/bin/ffmpeg
/storage/.kodi/addons/tools.ffmpeg-tools/bin/ffprobe

now when i hit record, it freezes for a second then the record button goes red, suggesting it is recording and the stream continues playing, however, no file is created then after about a minute kodi restarts. i don't see any error in kodi log and after restart, kodi suggests it is recording and on the channel in the guide there is a symbol to suggest this, but it is not recording. see below lines when i click recording. this is from the kodi crash log so contains last entry....  any ideas what my be the issue or something i can try?

note the below is writing to samba share, i also tried local with same result

I'm not too familiar with LibreElec, so I don't know where the ffmpeg binary might be. Avconv should point to the ffmpeg binary, but I guess you figured that out.

A quick google-search gave some kind of answer at least: https://forum.libreelec.tv/thread/11685-ffmpeg-path-tvheadend-on-libreelec/ check the second post.

RE: IPTV Simple Client w/ HD Recording - el_gonz87 - 2020-03-19

Hi Everyone,

First off let me start by APOLOGIZING to you all for being MIA for so long. That is not the first impression I wanted to make in this community trust me.
Had some unexpected things happen in my life that required me to pull away and focus on living (won't bore you all with the details  Wink )...

Now that I am in a better place in life and with all this COVID-19 going around I find myself with an abundance of free time...

There are a couple things I am looking to occupy my time with and one of them was getting back to programming. Was dusting off my old flash drives and found by luck my most recent code I had developed for this addon.
It's going to take a little bit to port to Kodi 18, but was thinking about doing that as a possible start.

I understand it has been a LONG TIME and people might have already found other solutions to recording IPTV, but would anyone still have interest in a development of this addon?

The OS I was going to begin with would be:
Linux
Windows x86 and x64

Possible avenues:
Android Fire OS
LibreElec (is this Raspberry PI?)

Let me know your feedback, even if negative I understand.

Thx!

I am interested too, using CoreELEC (fork of LibreELEC) i got it running with macpo452's updated version for Kodi 18, but recording does not happen, Kodi suggests it is recording but it is not writing any file, then after a minute Kodi restarts...


RE: IPTV Simple Client w/ HD Recording - el_gonz87 - 2020-03-22

Thank you for the replies. What I will do is update the code to work on Kodi 18.x Leia API functions.

What version of LibreElec are you running?

Thanks I am on latest 9.2.1 - that has Kodi 18.5. a new version with Kodi 18.6 is expected any day.

LibreELEC can be lots of devices i think, Ras Pi is one. i am on a fork of LibreELEC, CoreELEC, which is same code base but aimed at AMLogic devices, so for the most part, LibreELEC with drivers for AMLogic chipsets. i think all are ARM based in CoreELEC.

there is already an updated version of your code for Kodi 18, for few diff OS - see git below (i got the R Pi 2/3 version to install and run on mty CoreELEC devices. it works for IPTV, but recording does not write a file, then Kodi crashes..)

for me i would love to be able to pause live TV. even better would be option to  cache a (configurable amount in MB) of the stream and have this constantly caching,  in addition to pause, so i could rewind, just like my cable TV. i think this would be the final nail in the coffin for my cable TV provider!!!!

Since I don't have any RPi I can't test it, do you have any logs or crash dumps? It would be interesting to see what happens.

https://github.com/maxpo452/IPTV-Simple-client-with-recording-for-KODI-Leia 

Thank you very much for sending me this. I re-wrote almost all of the code that's on the github so that is REALLY OUTDATED. 
I've added much more traceability between functions for log, error checking, more robustness, etc...

I have completed the update of my addon to Kodi Leia 18.6 and compiled a windows DLL, so far seems to work pretty well but I haven't extensively tested it.

Next Steps:
- Compile on Linux (Target by Weekend)
- Compile for LibreELEC (Anyone have a quick tutorial for cross compiling on LibreELEC? Similar to Android Cross-Compile??)

Future:
- Compile on Android (As Client)
- Try to add Android (As Server), but will have to ship it with FFMPEG compiled and there is some licensing issues I will have to work around

Thank you very much for sending me this. I re-wrote almost all of the code that's on the github so that is REALLY OUTDATED. 
I've added much more traceability between functions for log, error checking, more robustness, etc...

I have completed the update of my addon to Kodi Leia 18.6 and compiled a windows DLL, so far seems to work pretty well but I haven't extensively tested it.

Next Steps:
- Compile on Linux (Target by Weekend)
- Compile for LibreELEC (Anyone have a quick tutorial for cross compiling on LibreELEC? Similar to Android Cross-Compile??)

Future:
- Compile on Android (As Client)
- Try to add Android (As Server), but will have to ship it with FFMPEG compiled and there is some licensing issues I will have to work around 
@el_gonz87 , thank you for picking this up again! Where can I find the Windows version? Thanks again.

Regards,

Bart

LibreELEC can be lots of devices i think, Ras Pi is one. i am on a fork of LibreELEC, CoreELEC, which is same code base but aimed at AMLogic devices, so for the most part, LibreELEC with drivers for AMLogic chipsets. i think all are ARM based in CoreELEC.

there is already an updated version of your code for Kodi 18, for few diff OS - see git below (i got the R Pi 2/3 version to install and run on mty CoreELEC devices. it works for IPTV, but recording does not write a file, then Kodi crashes..)

Send me a PM with your e-mail and I will send you a copy of the build with instructions.

UPDATE:
Got Ubuntu build today and tested it out a little, seems to operate the same as windows version, no issues found yet.

Onto cross-compiling YAY...  Eek ... I remember how much of a pain it was to build for Android, hoping that my brain can remember and this time it goes a little bit smoother.

Going to give LibreELEC a shot first since @thecubasekid has been hoping to give it a go. wish me luck!

First off let me start by APOLOGIZING to you all for being MIA for so long. That is not the first impression I wanted to make in this community trust me.
Had some unexpected things happen in my life that required me to pull away and focus on living (won't bore you all with the details  Wink )...

Now that I am in a better place in life and with all this COVID-19 going around I find myself with an abundance of free time...

There are a couple things I am looking to occupy my time with and one of them was getting back to programming. Was dusting off my old flash drives and found by luck my most recent code I had developed for this addon.
It's going to take a little bit to port to Kodi 18, but was thinking about doing that as a possible start.

I understand it has been a LONG TIME and people might have already found other solutions to recording IPTV, but would anyone still have interest in a development of this addon?

The OS I was going to begin with would be:
Linux
Windows x86 and x64

Possible avenues:
Android Fire OS
LibreElec (is this Raspberry PI?)

Let me know your feedback, even if negative I understand.

Thx!

I recently updated my Krypton instance to Leia and decided to try the recorder addon. However, I used 7FM's fork (https://github.com/7FM/pvr.iptvsimple) as base and added all missing patches from Leia's official IPTV Simple add-on branch, including EPG speedup, user-agent spoofing etc. Now I am going to add RTMP capture from @rkubera build and a setting to skip EPG scraping for VODs.

Maybe it is better to coordinate the efforts @maxpo452 , @el_gonz87 , @bsoriano and produce a working build for Windows / Linux / Darwin / Android / RPi?
