CcloudTv.bundle

cCloud TV | A Community based Social IPTV Service for Live TV, Movies, TV Shows & Radio

 

This channel is also a stand-alone IPTV playlist player.
CcloudTv

Features:

Search & Search Queue

Bookmarking (...is based on Channel #. If a Channel # gets reassigned on the website it will point to the new Channel.)

Pins (Since listing/redirects can change day by day, pin uses the final channel url)

Private playlists, EPG support, IMDB support

Updater (read below for compatibility with your OS)

Parental Control (Access Control) one can set permanent access option under the Channel Preferences. For Temporary Access (available via all Clients) set an Access Key under Preference first (default is 00000). Then from any Client navigate to Access Control > Set Access Key and enter the same Key. Clear the Key when finished viewing. Note: Preferences only works using the web interface. Access Control is also used by Updater.

    This plugin does not require a Ccloud TV database (db) url anymore !

    Ccloud Channels/Web support

    https://facebook.com/ccloudapp
    https://tlk.io/ccloud
    http://ccld.io
    http://ccloudtv.org
    http://ccloud.corrent.org



    Coder-Alpha Private db url:


    1. If you would like to use a private list of channels one can include them under the 'Private (database) url' option in Channel Preferences

    2. Copy above url http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=hv7pTgmu (new format) or

      http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=pEh1qXiV (old format)

    3. Paste into 'Private (database) url' under Channel Prefs field of plugin


    • - limited lineup maintained by coder-alpha for testing & development
    • - only legit, free and public links
    • - if you have a .m3u8 link that adheres with the above guideline you can PM me with its source page


    Use your own Private db url:

    1.  Visit http://pastebin.com/hv7pTgmu

    2. Clone > Make your edits (additions and deletions)

    3. Submit (keep Pastebin either Public or Unlisted)

    4. Copy RAW link of Pastebin file http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=hv7pTgmu

    5. Paste into 'Private (database) url' under Channel Prefs field of plugin


    Looking forward to your feedback !

    Cheers, :)

    some work some dont, but alot of the ones which refuse to load on my desktop pc version work on ios due to I think the iphone supporting this kind of playback natively, works fine when sending from ios to chromecast too.

    Operating System - Windows 8.1

    Plex Media Server - Latest Version

    Available Ram 16gb

    1 Terrabyte Hardrive

    Quad core Processor

    1 * Google chromecast

    Do you know which one and what device are you using ? Most of my testing has been on Samsung Plex App and Android. Plex Web sometimes seems to have freeze issues and reports 'Cannot load M3U8: crossdomain access denied' for working Channels as in the case of #19.

    Sky F1 Keeps buffering every 10 seconds or so, but a very good start!

    Using the chrome browser on windows

    I get an icon that says Channels(refresh list) then no channels available in Roku. I'm in Canada if that makes a difference?

    Have you set the website url under Preferences as mentioned under 'How to use' ?

    I'll make the plugins message more clear to check under Preferences when no Channels are retrieved. I'm sure there is nothing geo-specific about the website which is also viewable in the browser.

    Cheers

    Where is this channel preference? I only get one icon in Plex and it says Channels(refresh List)

    I do have cCloud installed from a couple weeks ago with 10 live channels working.

    Via the Plex Web interface (the cogwheel icon)

    [attachment=51155:PlexChannelPrefs.png]

    Not sure what you mean by cCloud installed previously, I'm sure that's probably a seperate channel and wont conflict.

    None of these channels work in Plex but several do work in Plex Rarflix. This would be the holy grail of streaming live tv. Great job so far! Thank you!!

    Thanks CHILL for your support :)

    Hmmm... Bookmarks should be working fine. It does need the Channel list to be retrieved first before you can use it. Similar should be the case with Search Queue.

    What does it say/do for you when you try bookmarking ?

    You can also add Mac as a tested Media Server.   Works great!

  • mwarren83mwarren83 Posts: 61Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

    wow this is great.

    any chance you can get this added to the unofficial app store?

    It doesn't say anything when adding it. It's just not there. The bookmark doesn't work in Rarflix but does work in the app Rarflixdev. It seems to be app specific in Roku. The search feature doesn't work in either app.
