    Download the plugin V0.4 / 01 August 2009

    Media-Portal Version 1.0.2

    I made a XML containing the cameras:

    Channels
    • World Live
    • What a World
    • What a month
    • Latest Clips
    • Motion timelapse
    • Funny people
    Cities
    • Hamburg Harbour
    • New York City
    • New York 5th/33d
    • Paris
    • Berlin
    • Seattle
    • London
    • Sydney
    • Munich
    • Budapest
    • Bejing
    • Niagara-falls
    • Washington
    • Cape town
    • Warnemuende

    Maybe you need to install the ActiveX part of Adobe flash (see below)





    Just select the channel which you want to watch, press stop go back. I did not write anything to block the comercials and that's not my plan. I just parse the link out of their page an send the link to the swf player.

    I hopy you enjoy it.

    Changelog:

    • v0.4.1
      • correct installer
    • v0.4
      • better directory handling (cities, continents, programs)
      • auto restart channels after 900s as default
      • smaller gfx, now in config dir
      • and more channels
    • v0.3
      • more channels
      • more debug informations
    • v0.2
      • skin works now also with the remote
      • add thumbs for cities
      • more channels
      • sorting is possible
      • view mode is selectable
    • v0.1
      • initial release

    Fast update! More cities / channels please:)

    There was a tv channel here in the uk that used to show EarthTV during it's ad-break. Brings back fond memories!

    One thing i don't like is that fullscreen is only 4:3 with white bars at sides (on my 16:9 TV) but i guess this is down to EarthTV and beyond you control?

    Hi Helios61

    I'm not sure, but I guess for win7 it should be
    \ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal

    I hope it works....

    and Sk3wby

    I will contact EarthTv and ask them if it is possible to strech the stream, that would be nice

    Regards

    Hi Helios61,

    if you see the channels the xml was read.

    So it looks more flash is not working.
    Here is a debug dll with more debug information. Please try this and post the log file.

    Regards
    kroko

    Hey Helios61,

    EarthTV: could not find "player":

    looks the plugin could not get the data from the site. I added some more debug and also the page will be stored in EarthTv.dat
    So please try again and post me the logs. Then we should know where the problem is :) What connection do you have ? 1 mBit ?

    Regards
    kroko
