Hello.

 

I'm looking for a plugin for Enigma2, designed to play videos directly from FTP sources. Something similar to the addon in KODI / XBMC. It will probably be necessary on the FTP server side to allow the establishment of a broken connection (request for data from a specified file position). But that is a requirement of the FTP server.

 

Does this plugin also exist for Enigma2 ? Can anyone advise ?

 

Thanks.

what about curlftpfs ? you mount the file system from ftp server to your box i.e. /media/ftp and you can reach it with any player, some fundamental explanation by @gutemine here

Hi.

 

Thanks for the tip.

 

So I installed it (mipsel chipset). But I don't know where to find some configuration in the GUI. Or can I only find a config in some file ? Do I have to configure this FS via a Shell / FTP connection ? Thx.

Yes great, thank you. I found it.

 

It's easy to use via Shell:

 

- manpage:

curlftpfs -h

- mounting FTP File-System:

mkdir /media/ftp
curlftpfs -o user=login:pass ftphostname /media/ftp
ls /media/ftp

It works great ! Goodbye Samba ! :) It's really great to watch all movies, shared on the FTP server.

 

Thanks again for the help.
