RTE Player on Boxee

Hi All,

I have developed a player like the BBC iplayer for Boxee. That means that anybody using Boxee (Windows, Mac, Linux, AppleTV or other) will be able to watch all the shows in fullscreen available from the RTE Player.
At the moment, features available are:
- Highlights displayed on Home page and ready to be played.
- TV Section contains Latest, Last Chance, Categories and A-Z
- For all of those, it plays only the last show available.

What I need to work on still:
- Display previous show available
- Add Radio section with all RTE Podcast
- Add Search functionality.

I am waiting on Boxee Community to see how I can make that available from Boxee repository.

sounds great. I hoped this would happen but didn't think it would. Do u work for rte or do u have cooperation/blessing? I had wondered my self about how to reverse engineer the interface (since its flash).

Do tell?

No I don't work for RTE
Just installed Boxee on my new AppleTV and then saw that BBC iPlayer was on it so why not RTE Player.
So I started investigating it and did it myself. I have the repository in place on my own server so anybody that runs boxee will soon be able to test it. All contributions or comments will be welcome.

Scruff, As for XBMC I didn't look yet if it would work but why not as Boxee is based on XBMC. Once I am happy with the Boxee version, I will look into XBMC.

looks great

what format are the rte player streams? flash video or h264?

just wondering as theres a new 100euro media player coming out this week called xtreamer which supports h264 and flash (but not the on2 vp6 codec yet) and it would be cool to have rte player working with it.

that xtreamer looks very interesting. If it lives up to its promise for €99 its definitely a better buy than the likes of the WD tv.

Ok some update on what I have now. Rather than focusing on RTE Player only, I have integrated RTE, TV3, SkyNews and City Channel in the same app. I have some other plans that I need to investigate before I say anything.
At the moment it is working great and I should have a version ready for testing soon.

This sounds really cool, maybe you could put tg4.tv in there as well.

Sorry if a silly question, don't know much about boxee...

RTE should give you a medal but they'll probably try to have you arrested instead :-)

How did you get around the fact that the RTE streams are encrypted?

By the way, I'm also a Boxee on ATV user so happy to test...
