    So does option 1 work on a macbook? My text files end in .rtf so can't save the code in the "MywayDakar.m3u" format.

    In TextEdit you can chose Format -> Make Plain Text from the menu bar, then just type the '.m3u' when you save the file.

    you can also press command-shift-t instead of using the menu.

    An update, which now includes France2. WHich is on right now, if you were so lucky to find this on time:


    For other pooter idiots like me:

    Grab your ipad, and get to this post here.


    In Safari, just click on the one you want to watch below:

    Eurosport1 is

    http://esioslive2-i.akamaihd.net/hls/live/201149/AL_ESP1_INT_ENG/playlist_1800.m3u8

    Eurosport2 is

    http://esioslive2-i.akamaihd.net/hls/live/201150/AL_ESP2_INT_ENG/playlist_1800.m3u8

    France2 is

    http://chunk-output-1.live.tv-radio.com/canalplus/android/index/1040/02.m3u8

    France3 is

    http://chunk-output-1.live.tv-radio.com/canalplus/android/index/1050/02.m3u8

    France4 is

    http://chunk-output-1.live.tv-radio.com/canalplus/android/index/1300/02.m3u8


    It should open a new tab in Safari, and there you go, good stuff to watch. :D

    I recommend opening the first one, make sure it works, bookmark it, close that tab, open the next, etc... so that when you get the word that there's coverage on xxxx, you can just click in and go.



    I'm gonna go to bed a little less stupid tonight. :D

    yes but that is on XBMC i understand.

    can you write up how to do that?


    I choose VLC for easier to explain how to , even then for som it is not easy.

    And xbmc you can open once and VLC myltiple times, that was also a reason.


    give some screenshots.


    Thanks myway.



    edit: do you know some about the livestream add or repository.
    could you make a XML for that?

    The problem is that to request a stream from the playlist, it take some time to get a good answer back, if that take too long, because of a low or struckling stream,VLC skip the stream to fast search the following stream.

    When you do that manual give in a stream VLC tried longer and then give a failure.

    Theres must be preference to set out that skipping in the playlist, Who have find that??????????????

    That's also the problem with some not going smooth streams.

    Is it possible to watch eurosport in HD - the 2 eurosport channels seem to be in SD - same as the eurosport player via their website using silverlight. I think there used to be a eurosport HD channel didn't there?

    Any other way to watch this in HD?

    I just want to throw out a thanks to Myway for your work with the playlist. The European coverage is so much better than the American coverage and I'm thankful to have it.:thumb

    Just saw some bits about the '83 Tenere storm, wow!!

    yes your way myway? is easiest and you've done an awesome job. i love the dashboard. couldn't be simpler.
    i thought i'd just put it up for people already running an xbmc/nav-x setup.

    sorry never used the livestream addon..
