[RELEASE] ZDF Mediathek Plugin - German Television
#16
Wink 
I've invested my weekend to script a plugin that can extract data from "ZDF-Mediathek". You found it here: http://blog.raptor2101.de/wp-content/upl...iathek.zip (need Dharma/Addonmanager...)

Pay attention this is a pre beta release Wink just finished hacking. In the next weeks there will be some changes. I plan to support ARD an the third-programms (WDR, etc) as well. Additionally i want to put this an an repository (officially or my own...).Here is a detailed list of the planed features:
  • choose-able streamtypes - for example choose between mp4 and asx or so...
  • choose-able quality - actually it's hard-coded to "veryhigh"
  • support for additional programms
  • repository-source
And yes your guess was right, they change the way how the site works and how they deliver the files. I can't get XMBC neither VLC to play the mp4 files. (exapmle-stream ). A short google-tripp shows up that they deliver a "Flash-optimized" mp4-Container instead of "real" mp4/x264. So i have to rely on the Windows-Media-Streams

ooh nice work! Smile thx!
i will test it out tonight and report back!

i also had a look at their site to see what got changed and found out that they switched to rtmp and as far as i know, rtmp is only added to XBMC's "DVDPlayer" video-player core, not to MPlayer? i might be wrong though

That would be nice...

That might be true, the fact is, if a hand over the "link" to the player (item.playable) i get the Error-Message in the log, it's unplayable. If this is cause by the "flash-extended" mp4 - container (they use h234 as well as i know) or by the missing support for rtmp, it doesn't matter. But as i understand the thread, xbmc support rtmp.

Ok i'am on the Move. It takes me more time than i assumed to understand how ARD is delivering data. Dig through a "Flash/Ajax only" is more complicate than simple parsing HTML ... nevertheless i'am trough and able to extract the data.

Additional i find a way to play rtms files in XBMC: http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=45938
I don't check if this work's for ZDF but with ARD - Streams it works well..

Ok here are the next version. I added support for the ARD - Mediathek and to extract rtms-links. On the downside the handling of the ZDFMediathek is realy slow. I have to parse 2 files per video to get to the rtms link (the only one who realy works)

what happens next? I planning to add a (system) background-script wo constantly cash the AJAX/XML pages, to reduce the penalty for downloading some data. Additionaly there have to be some Userdefined-Settings.

so keep up testing:
