    This plugin browses the SVT Play site and lets the user select a stream to play.



    Some videos are only available in Flash format. Therefore you need to do the following to get most things working:
    Install FLV splitter
    Install FFDSHOW and make sure it is enabled for FLV.

    Latest changes:
    • 09 dec 08:
      Fixed: Reading EVR setting correctly (which was apparently changed in RC4).
    • 06 dec 08:
      Fixed: When a streaming Flash video is found, plugin will try to find a Windows Media video instead.
    • 30 nov 08:
      Fixed: ASX files which do not end with .asx should now work.
      Fixed: Added support for EVR.
      Fixed: Better error messages when video can not be played.
    • 12 dec 07:
      Fixed: Trying to play Flash videos. You need player/codec for this to work (flv splitter).
      Fixed: Removed some unnecessary printouts to log.
      Fixed: Using g_Player.PlayAudioStream(url, true) as proposed.
    • 05 dec 07:
      Fixed: Made some code changes because SvtPlay changed XML format.
      Fixed: Since some firewalls are blocking mms, http is now used to retrieve the videos.
      Fixed: Thumbnail exception hopefully solved
    • 21 nov 07:
      Added the source code for the ones who want it.
    • 21 oct 07:
      Fixed: Refresh when changing between view modes.
      New: Latest news, sports and weather buttons
    • 03 oct 07:
      Fixed: Some minor errors, can't remember right now.
      New: Added thumbnail views (big and small icons)
    • 30 sep 07:
      New: Changed logo to hover_svtplay.png
      Fixed: Extracting .wmv file location from .asx file since .asx was not possible for me to play with WMR9 enabled.
      Fixed: Dates in combination with name of program now works.
    • 29 sep 07:
      New: Support for VMR9 added. Doesn't work for me, but hopefully for someone else.
    • 27 sep 07:
      Fixed: Packat & Klart should now show correctly.
      New: Added Replicant and Project Mayhem 3 skins.
    • 26 sep 07:
      Fixed: Aktuellt and Rapport should now be working.
      New: Plugin is enabled by default.
      New: "Previous" takes you back one level. (Can't exit before you get to top level though).
      New: After watching a video, last "directory"is shown.
      New: Directories are cached during session. (Should probably add some Refresh function later).
    • 24 sep 07:
      Fixed: XML was showing in some video titles.
      Fixed: Video was not in fullscreen.
    • 23 sep 07:
      Major changes in parsing because of SVT changes in XML.

    Improvement suggestions:
    • Image headings.
    • Favorites/Bookmarks
    • Last watched list
    • RealMedia support. Will probably not happen if no support is added to Windows Media Player

    I'll look into the problem with the Stop button.
    The missing OSD is a problem with most streaming video plugins at the moment. I hope there will be some progress on this. https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/vmr9_and_stream_video_problems-t24942.html

    Great plugin!

    One wish would be to have some kind of "back" function in menu. When pressin "back" now u go back to plugins.

    I'm also having problem with these, they seems to work fine @ svt.play?
