VDR plugin development


Recommended Posts

The first time i tune a HD channel, i get no video, then if i tune it again i get video. It occurs most of the time. It may be related to slow tuning in VDR, is there an option to enable extra debug?

Are you building against the stable server, or beta?

 

This version here:

<ItemGroup> 
    <PackageReference Include="mediabrowser.server.core" Version="4.0.0.2" />
    <PackageReference Include="System.Memory" Version="4.5.1" />
</ItemGroup>

Not that Emby is Closed Source, how can we get this plugin compiled againt the latest version.  I have a problem getting a stream to work with the current version of Emby.

I can help update the plugin. Curious does VDR include guide data or is it just channel import only?

It provides the Guide data as well, if you can use frank84's git source that would be great, I believe the Probing of the stream does NOT work.

 

The collection of guide data is working fine.

Here is the log file of a stream attempt.  It looks like it is streaming, the server says new client accepted.  I will attach the log files.  All I get is a circle and not stream.  also the live stream process nevers dies unless I kill it on the emby server.

As long I'm not trying to choose a channel, which is crypted, I'm able to open all streams. In case I tried to open a crypted channel, sometimes I need to restart emby server - that should be fixed in a future version.

 

Back to your problem...

Are you able to open this stream :

http://192.168.0.97:8555/TS/S91.0W-256-15-225

in an external player - like VLC?

 

Did you change the port of your streamdev server? Per default the server is running on port 3000.

vlc works fine, even with a scrambled channel. When Emby probes your steam do you see a bunch of channels listed? It looks like streamdev is sending all the channels on the transponder. What version of streamdev are you using?

 

I will try to find an unscrambled stream later.

I was able to view an HD channel! With the beta release.

 

I had to connect then it froze showing the current frame, backed out and went back in and it worked

 

Tried same channel using the iptv plugin and it is flawless. Works every time.

Wonder how the IPTV plugin sets up the stream?

 

The difference is the plugin is not creating a buffer file as Live TV will. Can we look at log examples?

A scrambled channel is working in general, as long VDR is able to decrypt. Problem is more, if there is no stream available - due to the decryption, then it can be that I needed to restart emby. This exception is not catched yet.

 

 

What version of streamdev are you using?

streamdev-server (0.6.1-git) - VDR Streaming Server

 

Attached you find an example of the emby log.

 

And this a VDR(streamdev-server)-log:

Just a note, I downgraded emby to 4.2.1.0 and have no issues streaming.   Versions 4.3 and 4.4 both can not stream.  

 

Please attach log files from 4.4. Thanks.

here are the log files. 4.2 works 4.4 fails, remove the txt extention as I would not let me upload a bz2 file.

 

What exactly does failing mean?
