ok at HULU feeds

http://www.hulu.com/feed

it looks like you can subscribe to a number of different feeds and embed the video into the RSS feed.

From the Hulu feed page:
To include the Hulu embedded videos in the feed, check the "add video" checkbox before adding the feed to your RSS news reader. Note, this may increase load times for reading the RSS feed.
How could we add one of these feeds to the HME/VLC video streamer?

vlc can transcode flv files.. can't it? I used a downloader to download a hulu file, then used your program to stream it to the tivo...

I just want to avoid the download step because the downloaders that work with Hulu are a pain in the a**.

It seems that each show in HULU has its own feed.. for example here is the feed for Johnny Sokko and His Flying Robot.

http://www.hulu.com/feed/show/285/episodes

When I enter it into the config file the episode listing does not come up.. are there specific tags you need in the xml that makes this different that it's not recognized?

If so I can write a web app that reads the hulu rss feeds and converts them to xml that your program understands..

there seem to be some referrs going on here in Hulu.. the url in the xml file

<media : player url="http://www.hulu.com/embed/0lMHFie3EbrGP4bJxvjcLA" width="512" height="296"/>
takes you to a page that redirects you to

http://www.hulu.com/playerembed.swf?referrer=none&eid=0lMHFie3EbrGP4bJxvjcLA

the 0lMHFie3EbrGP4bJxvjcLA part is the same and in a browser all you see is the video, but I can not get a page sourse to see what's going on there..

I see that this would be difficult, but this would be a great addition to the features of your program..

ok, I see how Boxee does it.. I believe they have a flash player that loads and plays the flash file. they can do that 'cause they are not then streaming it to another source.. We would need a flash player that would extract the .flv on the fly then pass it to vlc which could then restream it to the tivo.. Am I seeing that correctly?

it looks likes vlc version .9 and up can do some of this..
(from vlc website)
Starting from VLC revision 18876 (which means 0.9.0-svn after 17/02/2007), you can stream flash with VLC. You also need to build VLC with a fairly recent ffmpeg version (r7593 21/01/2007 or newer).

You can then use the following command line to do HTTP Flash Video streaming:

% ./vlc --sout "#transcode{vcodec=FLV1,acodec=mp3}:std{access=http,dst=0.0.0.0:8081/stream.flv}"
So would this work in .9 and above..? but .9 does not work right with the HME/LC streamer..

I was able to get the url of the flv file from the rss feeds (each show has its own RSS feed) it's just getting vlc to transcode the flv file.. I have no experience with vlc. It also looks like we may need vlc version .9 or above...
