[REQUEST] Starcraft 2 - SC2 vids plugin

Hi guys - I was hoping that someone could please help me out with a plugin for the Starcraft2 VOD site: http://sc2casts.com/

This is where they post links to the pages http://sc2casts.com/top

The difficult part is that there are often a number of different websites behind each link (youtube, twitch.tv etc) and that there can be multiple games in a series.

You help putting this in to a plugin would be deeply appreciated. Thanks, ColPow.

The way I watch starcraft 2 casts is by subscribing to various youtube channels that do the casts. Then, I can use youtube-subscriptions to watch the casts.

Making a separate plugin out of this wouldn't be difficult, but I don't have the time to pursue it now. I suggest you try the youtube-subscriptions approach.

Thanks - I am having difficulty getting the youtube subscriptions to work - they all show up and they are selectable, but no vids play. I can use youtube through the inbuilt app, however. I was hoping this would be a good workaround.

Strange. Content should play just fine. What version of firmware are you on?

Device: WDLXTV_LIVE
Current version: 0.4.5.3

I have managed to get 'Film Trailers' UMSP plugin to work, and I can get normal youtube (through the WDTV->video->youtube menu) to work without a problem. Thank you for the help.

You are running an old version of the firmware. Youtube Subscriptions no longer works on this version (there was a bug, and a workaround for that bug, but the workaround breaks future developments so it was removed about a month ago).

There are two possible sollutions
1. Upgrade to a newer firmware (recommended)
2. Use this workaround to fix that bug:
* inside /conf/S99user-script add these lines:
Code: Select all
#!/bin/sh
cp /usr/share/umsp/funcs-log.php /tmp/funcs-log.php
sed -i '/^$/d' /tmp/funcs-log.php
mount -o bind /tmp/funcs-log.php /usr/share/umsp/funcs-log.php

Thank you - I will upgrade. Can I just use the link within the WDLXTV menus pointing to an upgrade, or do I need to download it and put it on a USB stick etc (the way I put the original on there)? I appreciate the help.

use the usb stick
online updates of WDLXTV currently don't work, so it's more like a notification service so that you know updates are available

Hi huys, I would still really like this channel idea to be taken on by someone please. I hope now is a better time for those with the skill than the last time I asked. Cheers, ColPow.
