OnlineVideos core API cleanup
It requires a lot of work to maintain it as most of the feeds do not work - Unfortunately eg. Tvlinks.cc. This plugin would have made the mediaPortal a strong competitor to the XBMC. Pity I'm unable to code, I would have love to help.
Is there UnP access to the center. I would love to access my playon server via UnP.
I've a problem with OnlineVideos. My wife and i often look like online at YouTube or german portal e.g. ZDF Mediathek. But we prefer to have to use a subtitle because we are hearing impaired.
Is your plug in able to show avaiable subtitle?
Yes, OnlineVideos can show subtitles, but this feature has to be implemented per Site. You can request it for the sites you want in our forum.
Es funktioniert sehr gut.
Keep up the good work
Thanks! There's no real difference between the two configuration options. It's a convenience for the user allowing it from both inside and outside MediaPortal to manage your Sites ;-)
Biggest plus: arte +7 - I could (and maybe would) kiss you :-)
Some stations aren't working though. For instance I can't stream Southpark (ger). But that's a minor problem seeing how much there is to watch and maybe with some configuring I can make it run.
In conclusion: Great plugin and worth having it installed
Thanks a lot @ offbyone, hioctane and doskabouter :-)
