Bugfix: Removed debug outputs
This version of the add-on offers access to the media files M3U playlists. In some cases the media files (videos) may no longer be available on the RTMP streaming server. In this case the add-on tries to extract the M3U playlist URLs. They are also available for copying to the clipboard in the context-menu after a right-click on the (not yet playing!) media file. The M3U playlists can be played with any media playback software handling M3U playlists, such as e.g. VLC.
A script which can be used to download these files based on an M3U playlist URL is available on the description page of this add-on.
- bugfix: the plugin is now available also in non-US-english browsers
- the add-on can now also guess the URLs of documentary movies which are no longer available as streams on the srf.ch
On the webpage of Swiss national television (www.srf.ch
) some content is geoblocked, some is time-locked. For example "Tatort" episodes are only available from 20:00 - 06:00h (CET). But on the RTMP streaming server the file is always available. The add-on now also has the ability to guess the URL of Tatort video files even though they are time-locked on the webpage.
