Description

Hi,

Kodi is able to handle URLs with "plugin://" scheme in order to open a plugin.

That way, if a Kodi video plugin provide live TV stream, we are able to create this M3U file:

plugin://plugin.video.test/resources/lib/main/live_video/?video_id=channel1
plugin://plugin.video.test/resources/lib/main/live_video/?video_id=channel2
plugin://plugin.video.test/resources/lib/main/live_video/?video_id=channel3

Then we give this M3U file to the PVR IPTV Simple client so that Kodi can list these 3 "channels" directly in its built in Live TV menu. Then when the user open "Channel 1" from this menu, Kodi automatically open the 'live_video' function of 'plugin.video.test' plugin with the 'channel1' parameter.

My question is: Is it possible for Tvheadend to support these kind of M3U file in order to obtain the same behavior as PVR IPTV Simple client with Tvheadend + Kodi?

Thank you.
