Play video on Dreambox for Android

Send videos from your phone's browser to dreambox satellite receiver.

This app adds an entry to the android browser's share menu. It sends the URL to a configurable playVideoOnDreambox proxy server, which instructs your Dreambox to play the video.

With this, you can browse youtube or other video sites and play the videos on your satellite receiver.

Thanks to https://github.com/matgoebl/Send2URL on which this app is based on.

Errors

Error reporting in this app is very sparse.

Not Acceptable

If you get a "Not Acceptable" error, then the proxy could not extract the video URL from the URL that was sent to it.

The stock browser on Android 6 only seems to send the main URL (domain) when sharing, and misses the path. The video cannot be extracted, and boom.

A workaround is to reload the website on android by pulling it down, and share then. Videos on youtube and media.ccc.de are correctly played then.
