Hi everybody,

 

i've started develop a live tv plugin for the VDR.

 

The plugin requires the following VDR plugins:

  • streamdev-server
  • restfulapi

 

Status of the current version:

  • LiveTV workingEPG working
  • Recording working
  • Timers working
  • Series timers not implemented, yet

 

Here is the current version:

  • Unzip the attached plugin dll and put it into the plugins folder of your server.
  • Change the VDR Server and ports on the plugin configuration page.

 

Current Version:

Attached File  VdrLiveTV-0.3.0.zip   20.08KB   92 downloads

 

You can find the source code on GitHub:

https://github.com/a...DRLiveTV-Plugin

Yes. It looks like a problem with fmpeg. I use Emby on Linux, and it works fine.

I'll try to make a installation on Windows this weekend. Is there a way to disable the transcoding at all ?

Hi, 

 

I have just joined the forum, and basically registered to support your work with the VDR plugin! Great work, I'm very much looking forward to try this out. I'm still on PMS, but will migrate to Emby and try out, especially as it looks so way better!

 

In cas eof LiveTV plugins and Limux, VDR is definetly the best choice. I know most users prefer TVH, but VDR is just rock stable, fast, low on resources, great plugins, and well, it just works:) I do know it is quite hard to configure it properly, especially because of lack of proper documentation (except German), but once done, it is there to forget. I'm running in on my home server (Ubuntu Server) as backend to my Kodi clients and it is really great.

 

Where are you standing with the development of the plugin? I can offer you testing if you need, and I really hope you will continue your work. It would be so great to have livetv on phone via streaming:)

 

Cheers!

A short follow up on the plugin: it is working great:) 
I had to compile restfulapi plugin for VDR, and the configuration was very easy. 

 

I don't know what are still the limitations (compared to other non beta live tv plugins) but it is great!

 

I don't see the option to change audio language, therefore it would be great to add.

Hi szimat,

 

i did no further development so far. I'm also using VDR with Kodi, and extremely happy with it.

I want to use Emby on my QNAP-Nas. But currently I have no spare time, to play with it.

 

The greatest limitation in the first Version of the Plugin is, that no Images (Channel Logos, EPG, Recordings) will appear.

At least in my environment.

 

I hope for some more time to continue the development the next months.

 

Alex

Hi Alex,

 

VDR, properly configured, beats all the other apps, it is working so good, and the most important thing, being rock stable.

 

The limitation you mention are really not such a big deal, I think. Sure it would be much nicer with icons, but the most important thing is to have a working plugin for streaming.

I did play around with the plugin, and it does seam to be doing a great work. It is working fine, don't really see any bugs, except perhaps one:

 

-- the streamdev-server connection is not always closed after closing the player. Can you look at this, if there is an option to make the stream closed, I don't know actually how does this work. Note, it might be the fault of the WP8 phone app, using desktop it seams to be working just fine!

 

Is it hard btw to implement images to the plugin? I would however consider this as low priority.

 

Are there any features that could be added or improved?

Hi

 

I have a working VDR with streamdev-serv. and restfulapi plugin (VDR is version 2.0.3 and restfulapi 0.6).

 

I did set up restfulapi to get it working - I can get a channel list via:

 

http://myip:8002/channels.xml?start=0&limit=1

 

However in Emby it is just not working. I do not see any option to configure the IP and port for VDR and restful api within the Emby VDR-Plugin?

 

What am I doing wrong

 

EDIT:

 

AHHHH found it under plugins :-) - but still not working :-(

Is the plugin "dead in the water" at the moment?

Looks like the developer hasn't been on the forums lately. Best thing is to try it and let us know.

Tried to install the plugin but actually the configuration already returns with an error:

Still can't configure due to the error above but as I'm using anyway the default settings, actually the plugin works somehow... I get plenty of errors Error App: [VDR Live TV] GetRecordingImageAsync not implemented. But I can see basic functionality. For example can playback vdr recordings....
