playVideoOnDreambox Firefox extension

Firefox browser addon (extension) that adds a "Play on Dreambox" button to the toolbar. Pressing it plays the video of the current tab on your Dreambox satellite receiver.

Works fine with a Dreambox DM7080 HD.

You can also right-click a link to a video page and select "Play linked video on Dreambox". That way you don't even need to open video detail pages.

Features

  • Toolbar button to play the video on the current page
  • Context menu item to play the video on the linked page. Nice for video lists; no need to access the detail page anymore.
  • Dreambox web interface access token support
  • Supports hundreds of video sites, see the youtube-dl site support list.
  • Errors are displayed via the operating system's notification system

Dependencies

You need to have the playVideoOnDreamboxProxy software running in your network. It will do the heavy lifting of extracting the video URL from the website and sending it to the dreambox.

This browser extension only sends the current tab URL to this proxy service.

In the extension settings, configure the proxy URL (it ends with play.php).

License

playVideoOnDreambox is licensed under the GPL v3 or later.
