Stirr for Channels

This simple Docker image will generate an M3U playlist and EPG optimized for use in Channels and expose them over HTTP.

Channels supports custom channels by utilizing streaming sources via M3U playlists.

Channels allows for additional extended metadata tags in M3U playlists that allow you to give it extra information and art to make the experience better. This project adds those extra tags to make things look great in Channels.

Set Up

Running the container is easy. Fire up the container as usual. You can set which port it runs on.

docker run -d --restart unless-stopped --name stirr-for-channels -p 8181:80 robbiet480/stirr-for-channels

By default, the service listens on port 80, but you can override it with the PORT environment variable.

Upon startup, the service will ask Stirr for your local station ID and use it for all future requests. You can manually set a station ID by setting the STIRR_STATION_ID environment variable to something like san-francisco. Find valid station IDs here.

You can retrieve the playlist and EPG via the status page.

Add Source to Channels

Once you have your Stirr M3U and EPG XML available, you can use it to custom channels channels in the Channels app.

Add a new source in Channels DVR Server and choose M3U Playlist. Fill out the form using your new playlist and EPG URLs.

Thanks

@maddox for building Channels and Pluto For Channels which inspired this work.
