Totem Arte Plugin 0.9.1

with 16 comments

The Totem Arte.tv plugin project is still alive. After Arte changed their video streaming platform we had to switch from WMV to RTMP streams. RTMP support is finally available in the latest (version 0.10.20) gstreamer-plugins-bad release. Nicolas Delvaux added many additional features like GNOME proxy support and asynchronous thumbnail downloading.

You can clone the repository or download the latest tarball. Debian and Ubuntu packages are available too.

Enjoy watching Arte!

Totem Arte Plugin Update

with 6 comments

About a week ago Arte.tv changed their video service, which broke the Arte Totem plugin. Arte.tv no longer provides WMV streams, only a Flash player and the video feeds are crippled. Exciting improvements. *grr*

But we found a workaround to access the old WMV streaming server. We’re back in business! Just update to the plugin version 0.8.4, from source, from Nicolas’ ppa or from Debian.

I don’t know how long this streaming server will be running. In the long run we will probably need a RTMP gstreamer plugin to play the Flash video content in Totem. HTML5 to the rescue!

Endlich ist Arte+7 auch direkt aus der Schweiz nutzbar. Nun muss nur noch die 7 Tage Restriktion wegfallen und TV ist so wie es sein sollte…
