Hi,

Does anyone know if there is such a thing that you could label a "Virtual Decoder" for FreeView that works of RTMP?
If not are there any RTMP stream for NZ TV that are free to air?

Cheers

"Lol" is often an exaggeration, but not in this case

That could be quite easy to setup tbh, TVNZ streams Breakfast and other News shows to their site live at 500kb/s bitrate using RTMP (looks like s***) and TV3/MediaWorks also do it for their news shows at an even worse bitrate and using some sort of Windows Media Player Streaming (i forgot what it was called because of how s*** it is)

I am more looking for the actual channel live.

Its funny how as soon as it goes near the internet its illegal?
I can stream it FOR FREE LEGALLY off a TV. I dont see the difference in this here.
1: I will still get your crappy ads.
2: Im still watching the TV

If they are worried about screen capturing, What about a HD PVR?

If it was TV 1 2 and 3 etc on Freeview there is nothing stopping someone from getting a USB DVB-S/T receiver and recording it.. so i see what you mean.

All they want is money, solution to get more money - stream your channel online.

And sure, you could screen capture it, but it would be too damn low-res that you wouldn't even want to try and do that.

It would be a cool idea. too bad it more than likely won't be happening in the foreseeable future.

VLC and a DVB tuner and you could set something up yourself.

Been trying to do this for a while now, but i'd need a quieter computer and get port forwarding and all that stuff working too. (i can do it locally, just not externally)

Well you can do it your self with a dvb-t/s tuner, the flash streams can be played through xbmc it just takes a bit of stupid hoop jumping to actually find the stream
