HTTP Live Streaming Recorder

With 0.26, a new feature was added allowing you to record various HTTP Live Streams (HLS).

It works in a similar fashion as the IPTV recorder, using a single playlist containing a list of HLS streams.

HLS Recorder Playlist

The playlist is an extension of a standard M3U playlist:

   #EXTM3U
   #EXTINF:0,300 - NASA TV
   #EXTMYTHTV:xmltvid=hls.nasatv
   http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/nasatv/NTV-Public-IPS.m3u8

The link provided must be to a HTTP Live Streaming playlist.

Such playlist can be found there: http://www.avenard.org/files/media/playlist-hls.m3u

Setting up the HTTP Live Streaming Recorder

Start mythtv-setup

And go into "Capture Card" and select "New Capture Card"

As card type, select "Network Recorder"

In "M3U URL" enter the link to the M3U playlist as described above, you can use http://www.avenard.org/files/media/playlist-hls.m3u.

As tuning can take quite a few seconds, set the timeout value to 60000ms (60s)
