Dreambox ReStream 2.0 ß1

After a few months of debugging and feedback we have now reached Beta 1 of Dreambox ReStream. I want to thank a lot of people for the feedback. It helped a lot to make the software more robust. And to support more different type of images on the Dreambox.

A short list of the much fixes and new features:

Dreambox ReStream 2.0 ɑ

A complete new rewritten version of Dreambox ReStream is available. It is still an alpha version, but it should be pretty stable.

This version has a different code base, and has a different look. This version also supports streaming of your movies on disk like it were Dreambox recordings.

The iPhone support is still a bit buggy, but you should get a nice page when you use your iPhone / Blackberry on ReStream 2.0 website.

Download the 2.0 source code from the project page.

Finally, here it is after a year of nu updates. Dreambox Restream 1.4.3!!! Get your version now. :) :)

This version took so long time because I was bussy with work and social live. So I had not much spare time to work in this software. And also I was waiting for the final Wowza Media Server 2 version. It is now needed for Dreambox Restream. The good thing it is free for personal use. Here are the instructions

Finaly its there: Dreambox Restream 1.4.2!

After almost one year there is a new Dreambox Restream update. It took so long because of the fact that I moved to a new home. And that I was not allowed to have a dish on my outside wall. :(

After 6 months I installed the cable tuner and start developing again and here is the result. And thanks for the many e-mails. It really helped me to get it going again.

There are some bugfixes and some new features. If you are missing some features or you having problems, don't hesitate so send an e-mail...

How does it work? theyosh Sat, 01/05/2008 - 14:21

How does this work?

Look at the image below. It gives a small impression how everything works. It is based on the original version of M4RTiN for the enigma1 version. But his version gave me a bunch of errors. And the code was badly written. Therefore a new version based om the same principal.


Here you can download the old PHP code for the server part. This code is based on PHP5 and object oriented. So you need at lease PHP 5 installed on your webserver. Got reports of working systems on both Windows and Linux. Get your version right now.

The new code is now on github:


version 2.4.7 (21-09-2018)
 * Changed player to player
 * Fixed some EPG information and picons
