Play video on Dreambox

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
