Req Use plugin:// as channel
#1
Hi!

I have youtube links to live channels.

Was trying to make them work in a m3u file, but no success. Looks like IPTVSimple only manages direct streams or m3u8 playlists

Any way it support, ie, plugin.video.youtube/play/?video_id=cyOU1tX664Q as a channel?

This can be really usefull, there's a lot of live feeds reacheables only via plugins like youtube one.

Thanks in advance

PseudoTV Live can do this
first_time_user (wiki) | free content (wiki) | forum rules (wiki) | PVR (wiki) | Debug Log (wiki)

IMPORTANT:
The official Kodi version does not contain any content what so ever. This means that you should provide your own content from a local or remote storage location, DVD, Blu-Ray or any other media carrier that you own. Additionally Kodi allows you to install third-party plugins that may provide access to content that is freely available on the official content provider website. The watching or listening of illegal or pirated content which would otherwise need to be paid for is not endorsed or approved by Team Kodi.

I know! But i cant get it to work smooth.

So, i decide to use SimpleIPTV as my frontend. The simplicity in the interface is great.

Thats why i ask for this feature.

This is imposible to handle url like plugin:// in the pvr part of Kodi.

miszczu: thanks a lot for the idea!

Finally, i get it to work. Jumping in google, i locate a way to get the stream m3u8 of a live channel in youtube. Leave the info here.

I use (under ubuntu) livestreamer

Here is the channel i want (its an open air channel in my country, not an illegal link)

The origin URL: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cyOU1tX664Q

in console, with livestreamer, simply putting (note 240p is the selected resolution of the channel, can be changed)

Code:
[email protected]:~/Escritorio$ livestreamer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cyOU1tX664Q 240p --stream-url

i get

Code:
http://manifest.googlevideo.com/api/manifest/hls_playlist/id/cyOU1tX664Q.1/itag/92/source/yt_live_broadcast/ratebypass/yes/live/1/cmbypass/yes/gir/yes/dg_shard/Y3lPVTF0WDY2NFEuMQ.92/hls_chunk_host/r2---sn-j5cax8pnpvo-x1xr.googlevideo.com/gcr/ar/pmbypass/yes/playlist_type/DVR/maudio/1/mm/32/ms/lv/mv/m/pcm2cms/yes/pl/20/dover/2/upn/9XZYihQUlOU/sver/3/fexp/900720,907263,908213,934954,936118,938028,9408288,9408710,947233,948124,952612,952637,957201/mt/1430262602/ip/[HEREAPPEARSMYPUBLICIP]/ipbits/0/expire/1430284254/sparams/ip,ipbits,expire,id,itag,source,ratebypass,live,cmbypass,gir,dg_shard,hls_chunk_host,gcr,pmbypass,playlist_type,maudio,mm,ms,mv,pcm2cms,pl/signature/31AD79AC02EDB0BBCCE3458870E841426B94CD9B.637E7BB9DAD26B20E821C0EDF4D284DB7C698EA2/key/dg_yt0/file/index.m3u8

Adding this URL to my playlist, takes about 10 secs to get the live stream, but works perfect!

Conclusion:
Looks like the stream is allowed to my actual ip, but, if it not change, stream works perfect.

Thanks all for your answers, and i hope this info can be usefull to anyone.

Regards

CoYoTr, you should get better results with livestreamer and VLC restream abilities.

First, install VLC:
Code:
sudo apt-get install vlc
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras

Then run this code:

Code:
livestreamer --player "vlc --file-caching=2000 --loop --sout=#gather:std{access=http,mux=ts,dst=:8090/americatv} --sout-keep"  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cyOU1tX664Q 480p --player-continuous-http

AND the path to this youtube stream will be:
http://xx.xx.xx.xx:8090/americatv
