Hi,

There is already support for hulu for those living in the us. I guess just about any country has something similar. In my case I would like to access http://svtplay.se/ through the UI.

I am relatively new to linuxmce, but maybe someone with more experience could tell me if the plumbing for integrating this already exists, or if you need to dig deep into the code.

I.e. I would like to understand if I could do this myself :-)

Any advice is appreciated!

regards

A  suggestion could be to base it on the Hulu implementation in LMCE. Read through the source to get an idea on how it integrates with the system. Then look at e.g. the XMBC support for SvtPlay to get an idea on how to access SvtPlay (take a look at http://www.webforum.nu/showthread.php?t=173207)
Then it's just a matter of some mixing and matching, add some time and you should be going.

Just two suggestions: move this thread to the Development section of the forum. And hook up the IRC chat to get a closer contact with some people who will be able to guide you.

Joakim,

Thanks for your answer. I will take a look into the hulu implementation.

Is it the community consensus that this road is my best bet?

Sounds good to me.

Just do it. If you hit a stumbling block, ask specific questions.
