GNOME DVB daemon goes live

GSoC is over for a long time, but that was only the start for dvb-daemon.

Today I released version 0.1.1. The biggest feature is that you can now watch live TV. Channels are streamed over RTSP using the excellent gst-rtsp-server. This made it possible to provide live TV streaming in short time.

Together with the new Totem plugin you easily watch your recordings or live TV.

Now, go download it, test it, and report bugs you came across.

Future plans include:

  • Streaming over network
  • Streaming same channel or different channel on same transport stream to different clients
  • Time shifting, pausing and rewinding live TV
  • Re-occurring recordings (e.g. record a certain show every week)

I’m especially looking forward to see the UPnP guys picking these new features up.
