App for testing RTMP URLs - good for (Flash) plugin development
#1
Thumbs Up 
I found an interesting java applet to save RTMP streams. i thought it might be useful for people testing. I am going to email the guy and see if he can add swfurl and pageurl options to the application.

I'm trying to figure out the correct way to play this rtmp stream on xbmc or any other player. While playing a rtmp stream from justin.tv, I found this xml file in the headers...

Code:
<nodes>
    <node>
        <play>[b][email protected][/b]</play>
        <name>live_user_rudyslv19</name>
        <node_name>dev2_proxy_r1938</node_name>
        <connect>[b]rtmp://live-cdn.justin.tv:1935/live[/b]</connect>
        <type>location</type>
        <location>live-cdn.justin.tv:1935</location>
    </node>
</nodes>

can I do anything with this?

I also found a website that had some php code to play this:
Code:
http://www.channelsurfing.net/watch-sports.php?w=[b][email protected][/b]&i=[b]rtmp://live-cdn.justin.tv:1935/live[/b]

ok you have all the info to be able to play the media.

in python you need to set the playpath for an item like this
playpath = "[email protected]"
rtmp_url = "rtmp://live-cdn.justin.tv:1935/live"
item.setProperty("PlayPath", playpath)
xbmc.Player(xbmc.PLAYER_CORE_DVDPLAYER).play(rtmp_url, item)

it seems it is streaming from justin.tv i thought i saw a plugin for this but seem to be missing it now. you might want to look around

this site is interesting though
http://www.channelsurfing.net/watch-spor...:1935/live

so w= playpath and i= tcurl

so you can modify that url to play most rtmp streams using their flash player. unless it checks the swfurl or pageurl when connecting to the rtmp server

example:

Question 
Is this open source (C++/GPL) "RTMPDump" tool/library/code something that could be used by XBMC and/or python scripters?

http://sourceforge.net/projects/rtmpdump
Quote:RTMPDump

A small dumper for media content streamed over the RTMP protocol. Supplying an rtmp url will result in a dumped flv file, which can be played/transcoded using ffmpeg/mplayer, etc. Download scripts for BBC's iPlayer and hulu.com streams are included.
Download => https://sourceforge.net/project/showfile..._id=303903

Huh

Really? I see no note crediting XBMC nor Boxee for the source code? Oo
Nor does it seem to include a GPL license file as required by the GPL No

@BlueCop, were you ever able to get rtmpdump working?
I keep getting perl errors.
First it was that I didn't have simple.pm, so I googled that and stuck it where perl is installed, then I get this :

Code:
[email protected]:~/rtmpdump$ ./get_hulu http://www.hulu.com/watch/48466/30-rock-christmas-special 1
Found CID: 12677984
Can't locate object method "new" via package "XML::Simple" (perhaps you forgot to load "XML::Simple"?) at ./get_hulu line 70.

It credits boxee in the readme

rwparris,

Try adding perl modules like so:

Code:
sudo perl -MCPAN -e shell

once the shell does its autosetup stuff you'll be given a command prompt.

for XML::Simple, you do:

Code:
install XML::Simple

it'll download, compile, install for you... then exit shell and try again.. if it fails, it'll likely be something else... you just keep on until you meet the dependencies. Worked for me Smile
