    Keep Enigma2 & Dreambox Radio Streams working

    Hello Dreambox and Enigma2 users,

    BPA has reinvented his PlayHLS Plugin. https://forums.slimdevices.com/showt...LS-m3u8-stream

    It works even better ! Thats great. MANY THANKS !!!!

    But it broke the capability to play Radio Streams from Enigma2 / Dreambox Receivers for me.

    I striped the BPA PlayHLS 1.1 Plugin down, to only work for Enigma Streams.

    Unzip the archive and put it in ../Squeezeboxserver/Server/Plugin folder and restart. Since it is based on Version 1.1, FFMPEG.exe is still needed! So it still takes about 25 Seconds to start playing ;-((

    Therafter you can upgrade to the latest BPA PlayHLS Plugin ;-))

    @BPA: In case you are reading this, maybe you can give me a hint, to configure your new Plugin to work with my Enigma2 streams also. I tried your old tip, but it did not work.

    There is a lot of history to this and I have not read through the old message to remember specific detaisl - so this is off the top of my head.

    OK the message is a bit mixed up. The following is my understanding.

    1. You are using PlayHLS V2. to play HLS streams
    2. You have hacked PlayHLS to use ffmpeg to just play EMM stream which have a mime type video/mpeg and suffix mp2. The EMM stream have NOTHING to so with HLS and so new plugin will not help yoru EMM stream as your stream uses a different decoder within ffmpeg.
    3. PlayHLS V2 now just handles HLS streams - your EMM stream is NOT HLS probably something like plain http/MPEG-TS and so would need a significant re-write of the PlayHLS plugin to create a new Plugin - not a few lines changed in a config file.

    Your existing PlayEMM should still work - although the delay of 25 seconds is very strange - I suspect it could be improved with ffmpeg options.

    Interesting setting - I didn't know about that one but makes sense as characteristics of the stream from Enigma2 isn't "obvious" from MIME or suffix.
