    BUMP BUMP :mad:
    Further to my post in July here and the report through OV itself I am very sad to say that ZDF live section of the ZDF Mediatek is still broken. I also noticed as of this morning that Live Das Erste and BR in the Das Erste Live category are also broken.:(
    I do appreciate that there is discussion and effort ongoing to improve streaming in MP but I also believe it is very important to maintain access through OV, until such time that an alternative is available, at least to the major European public broadcasters who provide such a wealth of quality content for free.
    Please please pretty please could someone take a look at ZDF and Das Erste to see if it can be fixed.

    Das erste Live I can at least watch from here, but ZDF Live is geoblocked for me...
    Well it is not working for me here in Germany, see attached screenshot, same for BR but all the others I have tried in this section do work.;)

    Oh, sorry. I meant from a browser... so I can take a look at that without the need for proxies

    Edit: just checked Das Erste/LiveStream/Das Erste and I can confirm it doesn't work in onlinevideos.
    It all passes through the code without any errors, so there's no easy hint on what's wrong, and I have to do a more elaborate analysis...

    DasErste livestream works again
    Hello @doskabouter ,

    I appreciate your work and am very grateful about your commitment to the product (y).

    One question about "Das Erste". Actually this is a ensemble of different TV stations, which can all be accessed through the same site. It includes channels like 3sat and all the regional ones such as SWR, BR, NDR, and many others. In total the "Das Erste" mediatheque contains 17 TV stations. I was wondering if you see a chance to make all the seventeen accessible through one single "Das Erste" SiteUtil to replace all others that at this time need separate maintenance.

    By the way, is there any documentation about how to write a SiteUtil?

    Don't know if it's feasable to merge all of them into one siteutil, it depends a bit on the source-sites itsellf.
    What I saw from das erste is that they have some VOD categories and a Live section (which contains indeed quite a few livestreams).
    Merging all the VOD sections of different sites is going to be a nightmare, because the different sources need all kind of different parsers/regexes/structures/etc.

    And about creating siteutils: of course there is :) OnlineVideos FAQ

    And if you have any specific question, you can always ask me...

    I'm blushing here. only a couple adult sites play. many don't list videos, some that show a video list cannot find urls. on one, media player has an error to start playing. I don't know the workings or not-workings behind the scene. I don't know if the sites are in operation any longer.
    You can give it a shot yourself, if you're willing.
    Most of them are based on genericsite, so that means you don't even have to program for that. Only find out what the regular expressions are to get the desired content.
    There is a program that can help you with that: SiteParser

    Unfortunately it looks like Amazon Prime is broken again, at least the UK version isn’t working.

    I just get a pop up with the message “Error getting dynamic categories”

    I’m using OV 2.3.2 on MP 1.23 although I get the same on MP 1.22 and the previous version of OV

    If anyone can provide a fix I’d be extremely grateful.

    regards
    David
