I have not been able to get XBMC to natively play DN! live stream on Linux. It is not pretty, but I did get the below XBMC script (hack) to do the trick.

--------------
import xbmc, xbmcgui, os

# 1. use wget with DN! URL
# http://play.rbn.com/?url=demnow/demnow/l...proto=rtsp
#
# 2. use output into mplayer
# mplayer $(wget 'http://play.rbn.com/?url=demnow/demnow/live/live.rm&proto=rtsp' -O - 2>/dev/null)

DN_WGET_URL= 'http://play.rbn.com/?url=demnow/demnow/live/live.rm&proto=rtsp'
DN_MPLAY= "/usr/bin/mplayer -fs -framedrop $(wget " + "\"" + DN_WGET_URL + "\" -O - 2>/dev/null)"

os.system(DN_MPLAY)

On OS X, 10.6.8, I'm getting this with the Democracy Now plugin:

Thanks for this, and the classical TV plugin (the latter of which is working great BTW).

Thanks very much. I will give it a try when I get home.

Edit:

Decided to try it at work, and it is working great. I especially like the sub-topic menu items. Often I don't have time to watch the whole thing, and have to settle for the most egregious of the bad news.

Hi,

I'm still getting the same crash reported earlier from version 1.0.4 running on Linux.

Thanks.
Fernando.

Again, thanks!

Is there any way of changing the stream it uses? The video stream is terrible quality...

I will check but I don't think so.

Thanks. Please let me know. Looking at the source - https://github.com/queeup/plugin.video.d...don.py#L19 - i'm thinking it's probably because you're using the mobile site to scrape, so therefore it's just providing low-quality streams.

Big difference between a 3" mobile phone screen and a 52" TV Wink

Livesteam is better quality
http://www.livestream.com/democracynow

also the main website
http://www.democracynow.org/

I have made a quick add-on that uses the better quality video.
