I was asked by a one of my users if I can make an app that will play a specific URL

I have only worked with HLS (m3u8) in the past and this one seems to be a raw MPEG-TS stream

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Server: HTS/tvheadend
Cache-Control: no-cache
Connection: Close
Content-Type: video/mp2t

As this is a live stream a "GET" request with curl yields an endless download

Is there any way to play this on a roku without segmenting into HLS on an external server?

Private apps: IsraTV (replaces IsraIBA, IsraNews2, IsraI24, Isra10, Isra20)
Users - to report issues with the app (not content of streams please) send me a tweet - @quartern_roku and follow (so we can DM)
