[REL] Dreambox plugin 0.1 is done
Early January I gave the very talented Sander a challenge, and we worked a week on it. The challenge was to try and create a Dreambox plugin which I could use in my setup which would fetch my cousins dreambox content.
I am pleased to say that we have a working first draft which you guys can tryout if you want to.
It uses the raw stream at a specific IP, but we also tried to build in support for having a transcoder at a seperate address in case people outside your network wants to view, but has limited bandwidth.
The development of that plugin is on hold at the moment, but you are welcome to try it out: https://github.com/sander1/Dreambox.bundle
EDIT: The above link is for the original version which now is outdated. The latest greeeny101-version can be found here: https://github.com/g...Dreambox.bundle
Go into the plugin, choose preferences. In the host field you add the IP address to your dreambox. In the "web interface port" you add the port which the web interface uses. This plugin uses the web interface to change channels. The field called "Streaming video port" should contain the port from which you stream transcoded material (if any).
Maybe in the future Sander will have time to help me flesh this out, but for now this is what exists. Let me know how it works for you guys.
Limitations: This plugin is only tested with the web interface that is called Enigma Web Interface - Pli Edition. Until more development is done to support the Dreambox API, no other web interface will work I believe.
