EDIT: I filed a bug with livestreamer dev due to streamlive.to having changed their URL syntax which now renders this post obsolete.
This is just a quick tip i stumbled upon and i think ipad owners will approve.
Being a long time Android user i am new to the ipad, the ipad air 2 was under the tree so i set about tweaking it to my liking, on Android one of my favourite apk’s is the Dragon VLC Player it allows me to stream all the popular TV shows and live sports to my Android tablet best of all it’s free on Android.
So i then set about finding this for the ipad, alas it is indeed for sale in the app store but before i shelled out the 8 quid for it i looked around, after some trial & error i installed oplayer from the app store then once installed i opened up oplayer’s settings and i changed the players built in browsers homepage to http://mobileonline.tv this gives oplayer the exact same functionality as the £8 Dragon VLC Player, allowing us to access ilive.to and stream all the things, one has to just click on the hls or rtmp url’s [desktop users can ofc use these url’s in VLC etc. ] and chosen stream will open in oplayer. I hope someone finds this as useful as i do.
Happy New Year
