Windows Media Player - HDHomeRun URL

Post by nickk »

The HDHomeRun software now includes a WMP plugin to play live TV in WMP.

This is used by HDHomeRun Setup and HDHomeRun Config (GUI) for previewing channels (both VLC and WMP are supported).

It is also possible to use the Open URL feature in WMP to directly play a specific channel. The URL must be in the following form:

Code: Select all

hdhomerun://<device id>-<tuner>/ch<physical channel>-<program number>
For example:

Code: Select all

hdhomerun://10001000-1/ch20-3
Shortcuts:

You can create a desktop shortcut to play a specific channel - set the shortcut to point to WMP and add the URL to the end as a parameter.
