IPTV (Internet Protocol TeleVision) support in XBMC?
#1
Lightbulb 
Hello XBMC community.
I've been searching on topic but found nothing i can use to be able to watch my IPTV provider channels through xbmc. I can play the content using VLC player and a playlist which contains several ip adresses and the port to connect to he multicast stream. Is there a possibility to use XBMC as the set top box replacement?
Thanks.

Create a strm file with the udp multicast group and port udp://@239.100.200.100:1234

that should work

I understand what youre trying to say but i can't find the option to create a strm file. Can you be a little more specific on how to?
Thanks for your time.

I think the TVheadend-solution would work as well, it supports IP-tv, havent tried it yet though, will next week Smile

hello, i'm using IPTV at home and it works fine but one thing annoys me:

It buffers/caches so much Confused

how can i turn the cache function off? because when i view IPTV with the VLC-Player, the switching from one channel to another needs about 1 second, under XBMC 4 seconds.

hey,

I'm compiling XBMC in Visual Studio Express 2008 under Windows XP SP2, Windows Firewall OFF
I work with the latest SVN (04.09.2009 14:45).
Compiling and Debugging works fine =)

Even the dvdplayer works on movie files (.avi) normal.

BUT!!! when i try to play an IPTV Stream (f.e. udp://@224.1.1.10:31000 ) in an .m3u file or an .strm File it just wont work Eek
The IPTV Stream works defenitely (tested with VLC Player)

When i download XBMC compiled from xbmc.org the IPTV playback works!!!

Error.log on pastebin.ubuntu.com


One Error line says that it cant be played because of "CAudioDecoder: Unable to Init Codec while loading file udp://@224.1.1.13:30130"
someone got an idea how to fix that?

By the way: I'm trying to fix the problem why the switching from one channel to another needs so long with IPTV

greetings, philipp

Code:
<playercorefactory>
   <rules name="user defined">
    <rule name="udp" protocol="udp" player="DVDPlayer"/>
  </rules>
</playercorefactory>

try stuffing this in your userdata and name it playercorefactory.xml

thanks, but i'm afraid it didn't work
i stuffed it in XBMC-SVN-Directory/userdata/playercorefactory.xml

but xbmc found another way to drive me nuts, there is no error.log anymore Rolleyes (even when i start without the playercorefactory.xml)

unless you're running with -p it's storing things in docs&settings, not the svn dir (including logs and userdata)
