Dreambox ReStream is a Laravel PHP framework application that allows you to watch television on your mobile phone while you are not at home. Using FFMPEG it can transcode a live tv channel from your Dreambox to an HLS live stream wich can be watched on a Desktop, mobile or any other device that supports HLS live streaming. This software is made for PERSONAL usage. It does not facilitate free television streaming!
- Stream any channel to your mobile
- Stream any recording to your mobile
- Electronic program guide
- Ambilight effect
- Hardware enabled transcoding (VAAPI, NVIDIA)
Dreambox ReStream requires a webserver with PHP enabled. And FFMPEG for transcoding. This software is tested with NGINX on an Ubuntu server. To get it working smoothly a decent upstream connection (minimal 512 Kbps) is needed. And ofcourse an Enigma2 enabled TV Decoder is needed. Best known are the Dreamboxes.
If you have Vagrant installed already, then you can skip the installation below by using the vagrant file that is provided with this software. Just run
git clone https://github.com/theyosh/DreamboxReStream.git cd DreamboxReStream vagrant plugin install vagrant-vbguest vagrant up
and everything will be installed and configured.
sudo apt install git nginx php-fpm php-cli php-mbstring php-xml ffmpeg
Install php composer according to the website: https://getcomposer.org/download/
git clone https://github.com/theyosh/DreamboxReStream.git cd DreamboxReStream php composer.phar install --no-dev touch database/restream.sqlite cp .env.example .env sed -i -e 's@APP_NAME=.*@APP_NAME=DreamboxReStream@g' .env sed -i -e 's@APP_DEBUG=.*@APP_DEBUG=false@g' .env sed -i -e 's@DB_CONNECTION=.*@DB_CONNECTION=sqlite@g' .env sed -i -e 's@DB_DATABASE=.*@DB_DATABASE='`pwd`'/database/restream\.sqlite@g' .env php artisan key:generate php artisan migrate php artisan storage:link php artisan version:absorb php artisan version:timestamp
cp nginx.conf.example nginx.conf sed -i -e 's@root .*@root '`pwd`'/public;@g' nginx.conf sed -i -e 's@server_name .*@server_name [YOUR_DOMAIN_NAME];@g' .env sudo ln -s `pwd`/nginx.conf /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/dreambox_restream.conf sudo nginx -t sudo service nginx reload
When the installation is finished, go with a browser to your configured domain. This will load a setup screen where you can enter the needed information to connect to your TV encoder. It is pretty straight forward.
The amount of 'Streaming profiles' thant can be used is depending on the CPU power. So start with 1 or 2 profiles, and when that works well, you can later add more profiles until your CPU gets loaded to much.
