NPO Streams

CLI utility for macOS to watch NPO live- and video streams in QuickTime Player.

Introduction

In 2016 the Dutch public broadcaster NPO had a bunch of live streams to watch the 2016 summer olympics. I got annoyed watching the streams in a browser, so I created a small tool to watch the olympics in QuickTime Player. A year later I rewrote the tool to support the 11 public NPO streams plus NPO videos (e.g. 'uitzending gemist') and decided to share it with the world.

Note: The NPO has a geoblock on their streams. Streaming NPO channels and videos is only possible in The Netherlands!

Prerequisites

Installation

  • In your terminal type npm install -g npo.
