Channel Suggestion - Daily Motion

Thanks to all of the developers who put in their time and effort to making Roku the great product that it is!

I was wondering if anyone could possibly make a Daily Motion channel? Here's the link.

Re: Channel Suggestion - Daily Motion

This might be possible for development, since they do have an IPhone mini-site setup...

http://iphone.dailymotion.com/us

A look at one of the videos the mini-site lets an IPhone generates MP4 formatted URLs like this within the launch page, within an <EMBED> tag:

http://iphone.dailymotion.com/cdn/H264-512x384/video/xeb3yt.mp4?auth=1289081475-cb86a288be0fcb6358755da21a8b4c57

Looks like all you need to scrape to make a playlist for this to work is the video ID and the auth string the actual site would have given you.. (/video/ + video_id + .mp4?auth= + authstring, for example..) I'm getting this from the actual video's loading page and not the main page that has the front and back navigation, but it seems to be something you could scrape from the main page as well.

Hope this helps anyone who takes this on.

Probably best to ask their permission, since they actually charge for their iPhone app, but it definitely looks doable.

Ya looking same, even same for megavideo. May be one can develop skeleton code, later people can add easily for specific web site, such as megavideo, dailymotion, yoku ... and many more. One more Veoh ...

Re: Channel Suggestion - Daily Motion

i have been working on a megavideo and drop box solution i hope to have ready after we launch the Go Fight channel....

some of those other channels, it may be best to ask permission as its the best way to have it migrate smoothly and stay working

if you know the url of the video you can use my new private channel to stream the show, if its a roku supported video file

Re: Channel Suggestion - Daily Motion

Since I brought it up, do you guys want me to email Daily Motion and ask permission? Keep in mind I'm just a newbie interested in more channels and I am completely clueless if they ask me anything about the tech end.
