    Youtube streaming in SD

    We are working on a software to stream youtube videos from the internet to a car using EVDO. Any ideas on how to make it work are appreciated and will go in this thread.
    It seams like a hard mod to accomplish but it will work great espesially once the REV A is out.

    Well. Here's my limited contribution:

    1. Don't limit yourself to YouTube.
    2. Try to make it as simple as possible
    3. Make sure to support wifi(no just EVDO)


    1) Support other services such as Google Video
    2) Since YouTube's system is instrinsicly complex simplifying it might be hard
    3) Make sure ppl can use other long rang internet systems

    1)Google just bought youtube...
    2)Thats a good idea
    3)It does't matter what type of connection it is, Wifi is even better, more bandwith...

    1) Yep. I almost slapped myself but I think you get the idea. VideoJug is another site like YouTube


    How do you intend on doing the actual displaying of data. I have just started working on Digital Mods but still.... Unless I'm missing a control I don't know of a way to display video via the digital mod let alone sstreaming video

    not possible ... just digimod... We going to rewrite youtube-dl, a clever little CLI tool.

    Here is an example javascript code that was made for firefox to generate a link to an actual .flv file:

    PHP Code:
    // ==UserScript==
    // @description   Provides download links for Flash FLV files hosted by YouTube.com
    // @include       http://www.youtube.*/*
    // @include       http://youtube.*/*
    // ==/UserScript==

    // YouTube URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=[video_id]
    // YouTube download link: http://youtube.com/get_video?video_id=[video_id]&t=[t_id]

    var download_url 'http://youtube.com/get_video?video_id=';

    var 
    playerDiv document.getElementById('movie_player');
    var 
    t_id playerDiv.src.match(/t=([^(\&|$)]*)/)[1];
    var 
    url_vars window.location.href.split("?")[1];
    var 
    video_id url_vars.match(/v=([^(\&|$)]*)/)[1];
    var 
    video_url download_url video_id '&t=' t_id
    Also it would be a great idea to keep this separate to easy future update thats if the providers change some things around on the server side.

    Now just have to find a way to play .flv files in SD....
    OMG.... Window Media plays them!!!

    Just add support for "search", thumbnailed view of found video files, the whole list with small descriptions and here we go. Something like Tinytube.net looks like now with an option to save to playlist or save to library (in this case the .flv file will be converted into avi or mpeg)

    I would love to see a search module for local video files in the future updates. So that we can add online button which will search all the video streaming servers like youtube.com, google, etc...

    Here is the example program that works with youtube only and it allows you to preview thumbnail, save flash or open it:
    YouTube_Video_Search(English).exe
    It was made by folks from http://www.f2ko.de

    All the quetions should be addressed to StreetDeck corporation, they are the one's that created this plugin. We just have to wait for the package release to see for ourselves.
