I really fell in love with Plex over the Christmas with all the time I had to play around with it. See, in my setup my beloved VDR (www.tvdr.de, www.yavdr.org) is the heart of our TV/Movie Stuff and yes - there are streaming solutions for my bunch of iOS devices, but these are only focusing on the VDR Part.
What I like about PLEX is, that it really is a hub to manage all kinds of stuff.
So, the VDR Scanner stuff allows to add my recordings to the Medialist in PLEX, means I could stream a recording to my iPad while lying in Bed or being on the road - great. Now I started to look into how I could get a channel created that allows to stream live TV.
And, based on the Dreambox Plugin and the chatter in the "play .ts file" thread here I created this:
You *must* have a VDR instance running with the streamdev-server-plugin (as of 0.6.1, I am using a git version from 20131129 via yaVDR ppas) and also allow streaming.
Please - if you are a VDR user give this a try. I know that it is far from "good" yet, but it does deliver a stream to my iOS devices and PHT.
Feedback/Improvements/Additions are more than welcome!
