SKYSPORTSPLUS - A SPORTS STREAM WEBRESOURCE

SkySportsPlus.groovy - A Video Web Resource
===========================================

This video Webresource groovy is invoked with http://www.skysports.plus and will generate a menu of SkySports, Eurosports UK, ESPN UK, Setanta and up to 12 other available streams as provided by the cricfree.tv site. It is based on and uses code from the cricfreetv groovy which is now obsolete.

The groovy also accesses the cricfree schedule page so that each stream title will display the event name and start time of the next 2 scheduled events for each stream in GMT [Coordinated Universal Time (UTC)]. Note that the day does not display so the event may be for a future day. If "No events are scheduled" or the events have not yet started the stream may still be live with an unannounced program, or the stream may yield an error.

To speed up the plugin, it will now only list channels 1-12 if they have scheduled events. To list all channels including those with no scheduled events use the parameter "noevents=1". Note that the other network feeds will always be displayed since they have contiuous programming.

The plugin also 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.skysports.plus?refresh=30 , refreshes will occur every nnn minutes if more frequent than the console refresh time.

If the parameter "time=nn" is used, eg:http://www.skysports.plus?time=16 ,
the event times will be adjusted to your local time. Just enter the hour in your timezone when it is midnight in GMT. For example CET=23, EST=19 and PST=16.

The groovy will also generate a "events" icon showing the time of the next scheduled refresh.

Not sure why you guys are fixating in web site url. As author said on the first post - the final links are from cricfree.tv meaning http://www.skysports.plus is an arbitrary url to invoke the plugin.

It worked for me and i am sure works for others as well! Try it with serviio as as the way described by OP.

Re: SkySportsPlus - A Sports Stream WebResource

ESPN isn't available by the looks of things :(

Anyone know where we can get a hold of that one?

Thanks

Version 2 fixed that. Nothing in the latest plugin woulld have caused that.
Version 3 and the Version 4 just posted only corrected the titles to display scheduled times correctly.

Re: SkySportsPlus - A Sports Stream WebResource

Version 4 works well useful update . Thanks for your work.

Ref ( empty directory from Sarson UK ), I have a sony KDL-32ex403 tv which does not like the sony tv 2009 profile that will show empty directory but I always use the Sony BD Player / SNP profile that works ok for, directory is populated with correct working mpeg2 files.
No idea why, not bright enough to find out , but it worked on my sons Sony n200 media play so i use that profile all the while on my tv and it got rid of my empty directory problem .

Re: SkySportsPlus - A Sports Stream WebResource

Hi, Dropped by for two things. One, to say thanks for this plugin, it works great for me on my PS3 and I apprecate your work. Second thing, is it possible to increase the quality of the stream via a parameter in the latest build? I have a feeling I'd seen other plugins with this capability although I'm not sure where I do this and I was wondering if I could do it with this one?

Cheers,
Steve

No, the quality is that provided by the source capture at cricfree.
