No stream from beta.azubu.tv can be played. Streams from www.azubu.tv (the non-beta version) are working.

Starting a stream like this:
C:\livestreamer.exe http://beta.azubu.tv/Nyjacky

Always results in the same error message:

[cli][info] Found matching plugin azubutv for URL http://beta.azubu.tv/Nyjacky
error: Missing key 'videoPlayer' in player params

I checked the html. It contains a <param> with the name @videoPlayer. However it is empty:

<param id="az-video-ref-param" name="@videoPlayer" value="" />

I am using LiveStreamer on Windows 7-64-Bit. The version i am using is v1.8.0-7-g8c34089-win32 (downloaded from https://livestreamer-builds.s3.amazonaws.com/builds.html).

Getting the same issue here, would love to help out but I'm pretty clueless on this one :/

Only place I could find a reference to the videoPlayer was in http://beta.azubu.tv/api/video/active-stream with the number being the videoPlayer "stream_params":"{"id":"3533093124001",

I am unsure how to implement this parameter into the code, but hopefully it'll be of help to you.

Well, in theory I know how but I'll need to learn quite a bit of Python before I could actually get it working. Basically in the old site, the videoPlayer parameter was given in the html, while now it's being called through js from their API if I'm not mistaken.

http://beta.azubu.tv/api/video/active-stream is now where you'd find the videoPlayer parameter as the id of stream_params.

It seems the current plugin handles both the new beta and regular version Azubu.tv. If that's true, then this issue becomes more complex.

Since the beta and regular Azubu are starting to do things more differently, it's going to be harder to write a plugin that handles both. In that case, it may be worth dropping support for the old version prematurely, since going forward the new Azubu will presumably be the only one available.

Works great, thanks @chrippa!

By the way, anyone who is waiting for this fix can install the current dev version of livestreamer with this command:

sudo pip install -U git+https://github.com/chrippa/livestreamer.git@develop
