v17 Support of Edit Decision Lists (EDL = commercial skip) for Recorded TV
#1
Hey guys.

Have added EDL support in the latest Krypton pvr.dvbviewer 2.4.14 addon.
Here is my branch at github: https://github.com/popy2k14/pvr.dvbviewe...rypton-EDL

Sadly, DVBViewer Media Server api does'nt support EDL files.
So i have taken the idea of the pvr.hdhomerundvr plugin to sideload the edl file over an samba/nfs/... share to kodi.
Big thanks to djp952 for the idea and some parts from: https://github.com/djp952/pvr.hdhomerundvr

You can specify an directory/share to the recording directory in the pvr.dvbviewer and also set some padding time.
The new feature loads the .edl file for the corresponding recording from the specified directory.
The filename.edl must be the same as the filename.ts file.
And voilà, kodi is skipping the commercials.

Hint:
Set the setting "edl_skip_field=3", in this case commercial skipping in kodi works perfect and you can rewind, if to much of the show is skipped.

Info:
I have contacted @manül (the maintainer of the official plugin) and he will cherry pick the code into the current master to have the feature in the official leia addon soon...
... so stay tuned  Angel

Download:
In the meantime you can download the plugin here from my gdrive: These compiled binary addons are just for windows!
Maybe anyone can compile it for other platforms?

Installation:
  • extract the zip file
  • copy the extracted files and folders to C:\Program Files (x86)\Kodi\addons\pvr.dvbviewer and overwrite all existing
  • start kodi
  • go to addons -> user addons -> pvr addons -> DVBViewer -> activate it (if it is deactivated) and disable automatic update
  • go to the addon konfiguration, activate edl under "recordings" section
  • set the recording path where the recordings and edl files are stored
In the current state multiple recording folders from DMS are not supported!

have fun

Hi pOpY,

your addon works fine on my windows installation using kodi 17, but I can't get it to install on my raspberry pi 2 using latest libreelec build (leia) from milhouse.

There's nothing in the kodi.log only a short and fast error showing in the upper right side of the GUI.

Any idea?

Thanks and regards...

Hi.

Nice to hear that the addon is also working for you on your windows kodi.
Sadly, i have to say, this i s an binary addon and i am able to just compile it for windows.
When you use this DLL binary on your rpi, this will not work!
The source from my github (https://github.com/popy2k14/pvr.dvbviewe...rypton-EDL) has to be compiled for the rpi.

@manül do you have the IDE/toolchain ready for compiling for the rpi and provide us the binary until leia is ready?

As suggested in my previous post, currently the addon is just for windows! So on your android box it will not work unless someone proivide a rpi binary.
For windows please see OP, i have updated it with installation instructions.
