After almost 7 months there is a new update of Dreambox ReStream software. Due to the fact that we are currently happy with the software, the amount of updates is low. We think there is no need for updates except for bugs and or security related issues. If there are still wishes, please mail them to: dreambox [at] theyosh.nl
A few months passed, and it was a bit quite. But lately some bugs arises, and we released an update that fixes those small issues.
There are a lot of library updates, and some bug fixes. So it is more a maintenance update. But there is just one nasty issue. The auto-updater was disabled in the past releases. We don't know why, but it was :( So to get this new version, you have to download it manually, and update your own version with the new code.
The setup will start automatically after upgrade.
After a few months of slow development, here is a new version of Dreambox ReStream. In this version we have tackled the slow EPG loading. Also the browser should not freeze anymore. The code is probably not final yet, but it should be stable enough to release.
A new feature is to disable HLS streaming, and only have a HTTP FLV stream. This only works on the Desktop version. So enabling it, will disable the HLS support for the mobile interface. This setting can only by changed in the Settings.class.php file. It is not in the setup wizard.
In this tutorial you will get the Dreambox ReStream Live image running in Virtual Box. By default the Dreambox ReStream Live Image interface is accessable at http://dreamboxrestream.

- Download and Install VirtualBox
- Download the Dreambox ReStream Live Image
- Import the Dreambox ReStream Live Image into VirtualBox
- Configure the right network interface in VirtualBox
- Start the image and wait a minute
- Setting up Dreambox ReStream
Finally the Dreambox ReStream Live image is available. It took a while to get it right, but now, here it is!! Download it from the Dreambox ReStream project page. More information about settings and configuration will come. Any reports of bugs/issues and or wishes can be mailed at dreambox [at] theyosh.nl.
This week I released a new version of Dreambox ReStream. The biggest change is that when VLC 2.0 is used and iPhone streaming is enabled, that the iPhone stream is also used in the JW Player. Therefore VLC takes less CPU and there is no need to open port numbers in your firewall.
Another feature is support for single tuner enigma2 devices. They need a zap command before they can stream. This is implemented, but not yet fully tested. So any feedback on that is welcome.
Get here the new version.
