Make Muxes follow redirects

Added by Fabio Tunno 11 months ago

Hi,
I have an IPTV url that returns an m3u file.
Each entry is a link to an IPTV server that streams contents.
For example:

#EXTINF:-1 tvg-id="" tvg-name="My Channel Name" tvg-logo="" group-title="COUNTRY",IT: My Channel Name
http://server.com:8000/live/stream/content

and it works correctly

But other links has an url that "redirects" to other url.
Example:

#EXTINF:-1 tvg-id="" tvg-name="My Channel Name 2" tvg-logo="" group-title="COUNTRY",IT: My Channel Name 2
http://server.com:8000/live/stream/content.htm

This link return a 301 response code with Location header to the correct streaming url
Muxes show "FAIL" in status column, instead, and I think they cannot follow redirect links.

Is it possibile to enable "follow-redirect"? how can I resolve my problem?

Thanks in advance

While not ideal, I just wanted to put this out there...

You can use "curl" command line combined with the pipe:// facility in TVHeadend to get your redirects followed. Just turn

http://yoursitethatneedsredirection.xxx

into

pipe:///usr/bin/curl -s -L -N --output - http://yoursitethatneedsredirection.xxx

in the M3U file. Curl will respect and process the redirection, and pipe the video stream into TVHeadend.
