Structure

playVideoOnDreambox is a set of 3 applications: An Android app, a Firefox browser extension and a proxy server.

Both Android app and Firefox extension send a website URL to the proxy server application, which uses youtube-dl to extract the video URL from the website and then instructs the Dreambox to play this video.

Firefox extension: Play video on Dreambox

Firefox play button

Firefox addon (extension) that adds a "Play on Dreambox" button to the toolbar. Pressing it plays the video of the current tab on your Dreambox satellite receiver by relaying it throught the proxy server.

Works fine with a Dreambox DM7080 HD.
