Python command-line and GTK+ interface to ABC iView Copyright (C) 2009-2010 by Jeremy Visser <firstname.lastname@example.org> This program is free software: you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation, either version 3 of the License, or (at your option) any later version.

See the GNU General Public License for more details. You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License along with this program. If not, see <http://www.gnu.org/licenses/>. Requirements ============ * Python 2.6 (recommended) or Python 2.5 <http://www.python.org/> (Some Windows users report better compatibility with Python 2.5.) * BeautifulSoup <http://www.crummy.com/software/BeautifulSoup/> * rtmpdump <http://lkcl.net/rtmp/> * simplejson <http://pypi.python.org/pypi/simplejson/> (Only for Python 2.5 users -- same functionality is built-in to Python 2.6.) Installation ============ 1. Make sure Python is installed and working. 2. Make sure BeautifulSoup is installed in Python and working. 3. Install rtmpdump. If building from source, copy rtmpdump_x86 to somewhere within your $PATH (e.g. /usr/local/bin). 4. If you are running Python 2.5, install simplejson. 5. Either run ./iview-cli or ./iview-gtk. Usage ===== Some usage examples are provided for your perusal. This is a purely informational command, and verifies that handshaking is working correctly. $ ./iview-cli --print-auth iView auth data: Token: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX RTMP URL: rtmp://184.108.40.206/ondemand Unmetered: True This can be used to view the iView programme and find the program URL: $ ./iview-cli --programme 7.30 Report: 7.30 Report 12/01/10 (news/730report_100112.flv) 7.30 Report 11/01/10 (news/730report_100111.flv) 7.30 Report 07/01/10 (news/730report_100107.flv) 7.30 Report 06/01/10 (news/730report_100106.flv) [...] To actually download the program, use something like the following: $ ./iview-cli --download news/730report_100112.flv If rtmpdump is all set up correctly, hopefully that will download an .flv file into your current directory, appropriately named. If it didn't work, type "rtmpdump" or "rtmpdump_x86" and see if it does anything. If not, install it, or put it somewhere on your $PATH. Hacking ======= Uh...good luck. :wq
