XtreamDownloader - VOD file & VOD STRM export from Live TV provider


Recommended Posts

Thanks you for keeping this software updated. I like the GUI changes and the fact that I can sort by date without the software throwing an error. Here are the bugs I encountered after initial testing:

1. IP Ban checking always returns a "connection time-out. Server is busy or possible IP-Ban." even though I have no trouble connecting to the server and downloading movies works just fine.

 

2. Apparently, I can no longer save my server, username, and password to be used across sessions. That kind of sucks!

 

3. The list jumping bug is still persists. To reproduce, (1) select a group, (2) click in the title window and type a letter to jump to movies beginning with name of letter, (3) move the move mouse and watch the high-lighting jump back to the first title in the list. This bug is very annoying, but fortunately is only encountered on first try. Repeating above second again, will not result in jump to the first title.

 

If these could be addressed that would be fantastic.

 

Feature request: Searching the titles would be amazing!

 

1: Can't reproduce that error - tested it with various servers, and always responds as it should; try anoither server and see if it still happens?

2: This will be added back in the future update

 

feature request: right click -> search.. you can search movies, series episodes

Thank you for adding the favorites. I tested the feature and it seems to work well for me.

 

Also thank you for pointing me to the search feature.

 

I have no clue why the check IP ban does not work with my provider. I only have one provider so cannot test another. If there is a log that would provide insight, please let me know.

 

Finally, where you (or anyone else) able to reproduce my issue with the jumping title list?

Well if you can explain it a bit more, i tried what you said - but cant reproduce it.. maybe you can send me some screenshots / screenvideo? so i can see what you exactly do - and when it happens..

I do not know how to described this any clearer. I am having this issue on Windows 10. To test further, I tried this in a clean Windows 7 VM andwas able to reproduce this issue. Screenshots won't help. I don't know how to record and if I could record this I would not know how to blank the username and password. So I have to give up. Sorry.

This is already possible - you can convert local and remote m3u files.5cb392ff355e7_convert.png

After writing a similar program in python i am impressed by yours. It looks pretty cool and would love to see your parsing code. Is this open source? You can see the one i wrote at https://github.com/silence48/m3u2strm

However mine is strictly command line. Good job!

Update: Reintroduced the M3U 2 STRM tool, more information on how to use here: https://forum.erd-hosting.com/viewtopic.php?id=36

I'm getting some strange behaviour with the command line tool with TV. It seems to strip the show name and just generates S01E01.strm, S01E02.strm etc. These then all get placed in a folder of the show name. Doesn't create season folders. Exporting from the gui doesn't create season folders but does keep the show name. Not sure if I'm just being dumb and have missed a setting somewhere.

 

Also I noticed since moving from 1.0.0.46 to 1.1.0.55 I can't scrape my movies properly any more. In the gui I see the different groups as normal but there are no movies listed below. However if I click at the top of where the list of movies should be the cover section shows a cover image and no other details. I can only get 1 cover to show. When I do an export, all the groups selected have their respective folder created but only 1 movie from each group is ever scraped (the one which I could get the cover to show). The command line seems to work fine. 1.0.0.46 still works perfectly so still using that for manual tasks.

 

Let me know if I can do anything to help diagnose.

Well this is not a bug - or strange behaviour, i did that because most of the users asked me to format the series like that. Because kodi/emby will use this to scrape the series information. And can u send me a copy of your iptv details to i can check it for you. Because i dont understand what you mean with scrape your movies properly? You mean in the m3u2strm tool?

 

Also the older commandline tool used a M3U parser, so it parsed the m3u file itself where the new version uses the XC Reloaded API. I will create a second M3U2STRM which will run on M3U files, but i have other priorities at the moment.

I'm doing a terrible job of explaining the movies thing so I'll just post up the screen shots.

 

The groups all load up fine, but there is apparently nothing in the groups

If I click where the first item in the group " should" be the poster loads but nothing else.

The old version shows everything no worries

Another point I noticed with the cmdline tool is it doesn't seem to handle multi episodes eg. S04E05E06
Doing a manual export with the gui I get these episodes.

Using cmdline tool I get these

Same for all other shows and all other multi episodes.
