ILive is a video livestreams service provider. The service is used by users with capture cards who wish to stream various tv progams to the web.
This video Webresource groovy will generate a menu of all video streams available from ILive's multiple pages as of the last refresh, regardless of the limit set in the console. Note that the additional streams available to Premium Users are not included.
The plugin includes a quick refresh feature as described in the wiki at http://wiki.serviio.org/doku.php?id=quick_refresh.
The feature may be disabled using the parameter "genurls=0"
The default implementation with no parameters, will cause a refresh to occur at the console default time.
If the parameter "refresh=nnn" is used, eg:http://www.ilive.to/channels?refresh=120 , refreshes will occur every nnn minutes if more frequent than the console refresh time, and/or a "Force Refresh" may used to initiate an update to get the latest changes just prior to using the folder. (Note that it can take in the order of 30 seconds for Serviio to refresh each new item.)
The groovy supports the sorting of streams into the default, current viewers, or total views sequence using the parameter sort=0 , 1 or 2. Beginning with Version 15 the default sort is alpha by title.
It also allows the streams to be limited to one of the valid subsets as shown below.
Implement as a video WebResource with the following urls: http://www.ilive.to/channels for all streams
http://www.ilive.to/channels/xxxxxx for subset streams where xxxxxx is:
Live%20Sport, Entertainment, Animation, Lifecaster, Gaming, General, News, Music, Mobile, Family, Religion, Radio, or Movies
Also beginning with V15, the parameter terms= may be used to select all streams containing the specified comma separated terms. For example terms=CBS,NBC,ABC,ESPN Asia&sort=2 will display all streams with any of those terms in the title in Total Views order.
