Watching TV on MorphOS

Posted by ALB42 on 11. MĂ€rz 2021No Comments

To be honest I don’t watch much TV, I like playing games much more but sometimes there are nice movies or interesting news, but mostly I’m repelled by the amount of commercials these days.

But nevertheless I have a satellite bowl and it connected to a DVB-S2 card in my Linux server with TVHeadend as TV server which works quite nicely especially together with Kodi. But the Webpage does not work very nicely, the it’s very complicated and the in browser watching of TV program does not work most of the time. So I seldom use it (basically only to program recordings).

In the past there was a nice VLC plugin for it make it very easy to use, sadly it’s not maintained for very long time. VLC moved on and the plugin does not work again, I got it to compile somehow but still no luck still does not work.

A long introduction to what I did now, the TVHeadend have a JSON based API, therefore it was rather easy to write a little program to get all the information from the Server show it in a window and select a channel to stream. And of course as I always do when I start a new program I also make it for Amiga style systems, MorphOS is this case. (but also for Linux 😉 )
