Hello,

 

I want to introduce two Apps for streaming live tv and recordings to your windows phone 8/8.1 or windows 10 device. The apps are the RecSvc TV Client for Windows Phon 8/8.1 and the TV Client for your Windows 10 Device.

 

Features:

  • Touch-Friendly
  • Playing of transcoded Live-TV and Recordings
  • Channel list with favourites, groups and channel search (only Windows 10 TV Client)
  • different streaming profiles for lokal lan/wifi and other connections
  • find Recording Service instances in lan (only Windows 10 TV Client)
  • EPG, Timeline (only Windows 10 TV Client)
  • Timer (create, remove, change(only Windows 10 TV Client))
  • Task e.g. shutdown (for now only for windows phone 8/8.1 RecSvc TV Client)
  • Remote Control to control every DVBViewer client connected to Recording Service
  • Wake on Lan

Supported Languages:

  • German
  • English
  • French (only Windows Phone 8/8.1 RecSvc TV Client)

Prerequisites:

  • recommended RS 1.32 because of the new streaming profiles
  • Min.: RS 1.31

The Windows Phone 8/8.1 App RecSvc TV Client isn't supported any more. Only bugfixes and changes that the app is compatible with future RS versions are provided.

 

Have fun with the App(s)

Best regards

FFW and REW is not possible, because the recordings are live transcoded.

 

The Recordings must be transcoded, because Windows Phone does not support the original video and audio codecs.

Thanks for your great work!

 

Despite the wishes for a way to jump forward and backward in recordings, I would like to share some additional observations and wishes:

  • The logo background is black, so logos that are black themselves (like the one for 13th Street) cannot be seen. Maybe a white background or white-to-black fade could help.
  • I have several channel folders in my channel list, two of them are not displayed correctly: For one, only the first channel in it is displayed; for the other, no channels are displayed. I can share the channels.dat file for further research.
  • I have serveral home SSIDs (2.4 and 5 GHz) and would love to add both to the RecSvc Client.
  • Wake on LAN (WOL) would be great.

 

Regards,

Hi,

 

i know the problem with the channel logos. I think in next version i will add white background.

For the channel list problem please send me the channels.dat to tvclient@s51.org

That people have more than on SSID, I have not considered. Sorry about that. I think i can add this in a future (maybe next) version.

At the moment WOL has currently no priority.

You can use "/api/getchannelsxml.html?logo=1&subchannels=1" to get the channel list.

Thanks, but I know how get the channels from Recording Service.

At first I get the groups with "/api/getchannelsxml.html?groupsonly=1" after that i get the channels with "/api/getchannelsxml.html?group=[GROUPNAME]&logo=1". With this combination I don't need to download the whole channellist at once.

But GruberMa has some channels missing, thats why I need his channels.dat

Great that you have developed this App.

 

But i have a problem. The main page is blank. No channels or groups.

 

I have normal install the WPSetup and control it. Look all right.

 

I have the Lumia 620 with WP 8.1 (as developer preview).

 

I would be happy if you could help.
Best regards

I have a request:

When you select a channel the app jump in full screen. It can be good to show previously a windowed channel on top with the full description of the now playing EPG on bottom. Then select the windowed channel goes to full screen. Through?

Good point. I think i will implement that in a further version.

wow the last update is very nice. Exactly what I want.

Thank you

 

Noticed a little bug. The video not restart after standby the phone and re-enter in the app. Needed to go back and re-select the channel.

 

In the list of channels. It can be good to have an icon on the right to see the full epg for the channel instead of a long tap. Through?

I know that problem. I have some trouble to fix that, but it is on top on my list.

I like the long tap variant. So i don't implement that. Sorry.

At the moment you need the Web Interface 1.5 from the members area.

Start the http server on the client you want to control and add the IP, Port, username and passwort in the Remote section of the App. Default Username is "admin" and password is "admin"

But in a future version this will change that you only need the recording service 1.30.1 and the DVBViewer >= 5.3.2

Works fine

Nanohcv nice app , unfortunately on the htc windows 8 with developers preview for 8.1 the video is failing to play.

 

also i see the is no option/button to rebuild the graph in the remote side of the app.. this option is very handy in the event of bad weather freezing the picture.

 

if you have any ideas as to why the video is failing to play ???

 

many thanks

Hi buttonsNI,

 

which version of Recording Service you are using? Is ffmpeg installed?

Do you have the right streaming profiles choosen? Should be WP 1536 kbit and WP 768 kbit.

Does EPG and the channel list work?

the recording service is 1.30.1.0

ffmpeg is installed

the streaming profiles are exactly as you have shown

and yes the epg is working and channel list and the remote control for the pc viewer is working and as i suggested the button for the graph rebuild and option to shutdown the pc viewer only should be there as well.

and i have the firewall open as well

and the video failed to play

@Nanohcv

I think "Aufnehmen" seems to say "Record" in english and "Enregistrer" en français.

Please add this translation in your next version.

Thanks

 

  • I noticed that the channel is not redirected in one of a recording channel when all tuner are in use.

Fixed in the latest version, which I uploaded today.

I can not control that. This must be implemented in recording service.

Hi,

 

can you try to play the following stream with vlc on your pc (In VLC...Open Network stream)? Replace the ip with your recording service ip (192.168.178.68) and the port (8089) with your recording service port.

 

It should look like this:

http://192.168.178.68:8089/flashstream/stream.ts?Preset=13&aspect=16:9&ffPreset=medium&maxwidth=&maxheight=&chid=1

Your input can't be opened:

 

VLC is unable to open the MRL 'http://192.168.1.68:7777/flashstream/stream.ts?Preset=13&aspect=16:9&ffPreset=medium&maxwidth=&maxheight=&chid=1'. Check the log for details.

Running really good here on my cheap nokia 630!
Excellent work - even better then every webinterface.

 

For the future - if possible: To move forward and backward in a recording would be cool.

 

regards and thanks
