m3u2strm

I tried the new m3u2strm and find that the generated files contain a peculiar "[" in the name. For example: "The Peanuts Movie [ (2015).strm". It seems the year format gets mangled here. The old version of m3u2strm yield "The Peanuts Movie [2015].strm". Please check. Thank you.

Re: m3u2strm

I also noticed that when I click on the same movie in the GUI, I get error: "Parser Error: Access violation at address 008A9E46 in module 'XDpro.exe'. Read of address 0000000C."

Re: m3u2strm

In the GUI, the movie is listed as "The Peanuts Movie [2015]".

Re: m3u2strm

I send u a pm with the updated version of the m3u2strm, can u give it a try please? I cant test it myself as my m3u's dont have filenames containing [ or ].

And what do you mean by when i click on the same movie?

Re: m3u2strm

The m3u2strm now works. It gives "The Peanuts Movie (2015).strm" So the difference to the old version is the use of parentheses "()" instead of square brackets "[]".

Re: m3u2strm

With "Click on same movie", I mean I open the GUI, load the m3u, then in "title" windows I click on the the movie "The Peanuts Movie [2015]". So something is parsing incorrectly in the GUI version as well.

Re: m3u2strm

Yes thanks, i fixed it - the problem is some providers like GenIPTV, dont send any movie/series/episode data.. I fixed it now, i will check it and update it in a sec. This does mean that people might not be able to see any movie/series information, but that depends on the provider..

Re: m3u2strm

Just updated to 1.1.0.55, the Parsing error should be fixed - do notice that some providers (like GenIPTV) do not provide full movie/series information for some groups.. (This also was the error). But this error should be fixed now wink Also thank you for checking, i updated the M3U 2 STRM also in this update setup.

Re: m3u2strm

I updated to v1.1.0.55. The m3ustrm.exe works fine. However, I still get the parse error and so I did some more digging. It turns out that the link to the movie .mkv file listed in the m3u is a dead link. This explains why there is no movie data. Not sure why the parse error persists. Does this error need to be caught separately?

Re: m3u2strm

Can u tell me what provider you use? I tried it with GenIPTV, where they also where missing data - and what caused the error. I now did check for a valid response - because the response data is in JSON, and should meet a standard - but i noticed some providers dont keep to this standard, and thats where the parsing error is..

Re: m3u2strm

I checked several of the movies which produce the parser error, and in each case VLC is unable to open the file. When I enter the URL in the browser, nothing is returned. So it seems that there is no response from the server. Could the response be empty?

Re: m3u2strm

Yes, get some sleep, no rush, we can continue tomorrow. Thank you for being so response. I am happy to test your other lists but I am sure the fault is with the few dead links in my provider's m3u. Good night!
