Web streams are tricky. The easy way is to use Channels or Jumpy. These plugin allows you to browse the web and extract web streams for you. If you use the WEB.conf file you need to do some hacking.
For example if you wan't to look at this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zPGb4STRfKw you cant add

Code: Select all

videostream.Web,YouTube=Biggus,https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zPGb4STRfKw
to your WEB.conf file since https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zPGb4STRfKw is not the actual stream (it is resolved using some javascript in the background on the web page).
So what you should put in your WEB.conf in that case is the resolved link.

Now both Channels and Jumpy does this under the hood and to some extent allows you to enter links like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zPGb4STRfKw in you WEB.conf and the resolves it for you.
We reject: kings, presidents and voting.
We believe in: rough consensus and running code.
