I looking into an Idea, problem is I don't have the skills to end it.
I like to use Swiss IPTV outside of Switzerland.
There are providers like teleboy, zattoo or Wilmaa
all of them provide only browser TV oder mobile apps.
What I like to do is the following:
using a Rasspery PI add beside of the integrated network card a second via USB
This additional Card shall be able to open a VPN connection a standard connection to the outside.
the internal card shall be used inside a home network.
So the PI should logon to sites like zattoo receive the tv station list. but it shall not but the signal to the HDMI out, instead of that it should put those streams into a stream which I can use with any media server (rtmp or http)
Zattoo and co are using Flash players, that why it is complicated
all available channels should be avail for the home network like the following example
something like that
best of course would be if the PI could provide more than 1 stream at the time, best would be 3 or 4 but that is not essential as I don't know if the PI can handle that much performance wise.
the whole thing shall use the Ubuntu Linux platform for the pi
setup shall be done via web interface for e.g. VPN, Network, display of available channel, capability to access the Channel list as XML file via http access
please if somebody feels confident to solve that problem make me an offer and describe you like to solve that problem.
