Requirements
============
* Python 2.6 (recommended) or Python 2.5 <http://www.python.org/>
(Some Windows users report better compatibility with Python 2.5.)
* BeautifulSoup <http://www.crummy.com/software/BeautifulSoup/>
* rtmpdump <http://lkcl.net/rtmp/>
* simplejson <http://pypi.python.org/pypi/simplejson/>
(Only for Python 2.5 users -- same functionality is built-in to Python 2.6.)
Installation
============
1. Make sure Python is installed and working.
2. Make sure BeautifulSoup is installed in Python and working.
3. Install rtmpdump. If building from source, copy rtmpdump_x86 to
somewhere within your $PATH (e.g. /usr/local/bin).
4. If you are running Python 2.5, install simplejson.
5. Either run ./iview-cli or ./iview-gtk.
Usage
=====
Some usage examples are provided for your perusal.
This is a purely informational command, and verifies that handshaking is
working correctly.
$ ./iview-cli --print-auth
iView auth data:
Token: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
RTMP URL: rtmp://203.18.195.10/ondemand
Unmetered: True
This can be used to view the iView programme and find the program URL:
$ ./iview-cli --programme
7.30 Report:
7.30 Report 12/01/10 (news/730report_100112.flv)
7.30 Report 11/01/10 (news/730report_100111.flv)
7.30 Report 07/01/10 (news/730report_100107.flv)
7.30 Report 06/01/10 (news/730report_100106.flv)
[...]
To actually download the program, use something like the following:
$ ./iview-cli --download news/730report_100112.flv
If rtmpdump is all set up correctly, hopefully that will download
an .flv file into your current directory, appropriately named. If it
didn't work, type "rtmpdump" or "rtmpdump_x86" and see if it does anything.
If not, install it, or put it somewhere on your $PATH.
Hacking
=======
Uh...good luck.
