its a stream - you play it in VLC etc
how do you not know that ??? :shock:

Oh right... well all one can do is click on it... do I look like a magician? :?

I'm only interested in what's available on the Internet and plays directly in browsers. There’s no VLC support in the Chromium engine.

As for paid subscriptions... I haven’t the slightest interest in memberships and syndicates.

The best TV is FREE TV and for that my browser includes 100s of channels from all over the world.

Interestingly, the Brits are the stingiest on the planet offering next to nothing for free!

You sad bastards… :lol:

:shock: Actually...

You’ve just given me an idea Paul… I should add a streams association in my options so when this starts coming through I’ll just load the associated player and pass the file download to it! :lol:

You are the greatest Paul! :D

Off to my programming I go.... :lol: :lol: :lol:

For me Kodi is good with Exodus for latest movies that do not exist on Netflix. If there was a reliable way to get live football then that could be good also for the 3-4 times a year I want to watch a specific game (champions league etc)... however I couldn't find a way to easily get any game reliably without hunting around. Any suggestions? Other than that I am totally covered by Cypriot TV channels (watching specific shows with catchup), the channels on Primetel and Netflix. I don't watch TV for more than 2-3 hours each day, half of the days I don't watch TV at all. That is why I didn't bother with Kodi for myself. The last thing I care about are some public TV channels of other countries especially if they are not in Greek or English... if you care about those you can put a sat dish and gets tons of them.

Oh be quiet and let me LOVE you Paul… you said the magic word “streams” which I had completely forgotten about but now my browser detects and directs all LIVE audio/video streams to a player of your choice. 8)

In your face Chrome, Firefox, and Edge! :lol:

Oh btw… if you have more of those free streaming links do share in a pm. :D

When you click on the link you posted most browsers will just start downloading bytes aimlessly to a file that can never be closed (<- closing the "file handle") because the stream never ends.

So I changed mine to detect if it’s a stream (by checking the download's MIME type etc) so as to pass it to a player instead!

Yes but automated.

Paul ZKTV wrote:can you offer links to channels like BBC /ITV etc ?

Of course not! I’m not in the entertainment industry so I can only peddle freebies and there is plenty of free online entertainment available to the public.

They just don’t know where/how to find them so I do all that for them via special menus in my browser.

So if you have some freebie links you don’t mind sharing… or maybe I should just scrape your website! :lol:

PS: I'm not your competitor Paul so stop seeing me that way.
