XMTV PLAYER – NEXT GENERATION MULTIMEDIA AND STREAMING PLAYER FOR ANDROID
It should be working on Android devices, be able to play different movie and still image formats, online streams and stream lists. During my search for such a player I checked several players and no one was able to do all the things I need, was too heavy, or too uncomfortable to use.
So I decided to write one.
As it is well known that the wheel and the warm water are already invented it was not needed to reinvent them again. So I started to play with ffmpeg – based project named Vitamio, (seems they also came to the idea for the wheel ).
During my work on it I found that in the Internet users publish a lot of TV streams. As a person who do not stay nonstop in front of my desktop/laptop computer (and not at home at all) I found that ability to watch my favorite TV channels where I can find WiFi hotspot (or even on cellphone operator’s 3G) is quite useful. So I decided to add functionality to the player to support TV Channels packages.

HOW IT WORKS:
Watch IPTV from your Internet service provider or free live TV channels from any other source in the web.
If you are using VLC or SimpleTV to watch TV on your PC then this app is for you.
* First you’ll need to input channels list (m3u playlist), you can get it from your ISP or find free channels list in the web.
* If app asks to setup UDP proxy, please do it, see instructions below.
Installing UDP proxy for multicast streams:
– for Windows: download and install UDP-to-HTTP proxy from http://borpas.info/download/UdpProxy.exe
– for Linux: install udpxy ( http://udpxy.com/index-en.html , http://sourceforge.net/projects/udpxy/ )
– the best solution would be installing udpxy on your WLAN router, this can be done for DD-WRT ( http://www.dd-wrt.com ) and OpenWrt ( https://openwrt.org ) firmware
– some WLAN routers have built-in udpxy in manufacturer’s firmware
As a ffmpeg-based project XMTV Player can play all the formats that are supported by ffmpeg. In addition to that it can play whole folder content (only the supported media formats), can play online streams (including radio- and tv- ones), can open and play .m3u playlists.
As it is targeted mainly as a player, by default XMTV Player comes with the player functionality only. This helps to keep the .apk size as small as possible. But for the TV and radio streams that not enough – everyone who tried to construct and maintain channel lists is aware how difficult task is this. So I decided to implement the following options to bypass this issue:
– Support for .m3u lists – the simple option. Just construct your own .m3u list and upload it to your device.
– Support for external channel packages – (I call them channel providers) – it’s an ability to communicate with external .apk files which can contain channel lists
The first option is good mainly for personal use, while the second is related to everybody who is interested to develop, distribute and maintain a channel list by their own and to use XMTV Player just as a player.
More info about how to use XMTV Player and it’s options is available in How To section.
