AndroidDreamer (ANDR) - now with streaming in Local LAN and remotely over 3G/HDSPA/WIFI. Works with most Enigma-based receivers (Enigma1 and Enigma2) such as Dreambox, xTrend, VU+ etc. For video-streaming, players such as vPlayer, MX Video Player and DaroonPlayer are supported.
Beta 0.66 of March 31, 2012
AndroidDreamer is an application for Dreambox-owners (or any Enigma1- or Enigma2-based satellite-receiver) which lets you watch your Dreambox on your Android via streaming in LAN and remotely over 3G/HDSPA/WIFI. It will later on also replace your real remote-control with an virtual one so you can control your Dreambox directly from your Android-device.
However, AndroidDreamer in this moment, is very simple and basic since it is in an early stage of development and currently it does not yet support features such as EPG, Remote Control, Timer Management etc.
Mainly, it was written quickly to test streaming and this beta release supports streaming (in Local LAN and remotely over 3G/HDSPA/WIFI) both for Enigma and Enigma2.
However, please note this is still a BETA and errors may occur. Since the streaming-part works well, I decided to make it available on the Google Play (Android Market).
Note: What regards streaming over 3G/HDSPA, you should be aware of the fact that watching a stream from your Dreambox over 3G will consume a lot of data-traffic so you should have a contract with your mobile-operator which permits you unlimited data or at least a lot of data for a fixed price. However, if you are using AndroidDreamer for streaming within your Local LAN (using WIFI), then of course you will not consume any data-traffic on your mobile network.
Read carefully the instructions, especially what regards setting up 3G-streaming (VPN- e HTTP-modes). The instructions can be read by clicking on your Menu-button.
For those using VLC (for instance for 3G-streaming), please note that from version 2.0.0 (and later) of VLC, there seems to be a problem with the way ANDR comunicates with VLC. Please install an earlier version of VLC. You can find previous versions here: http://download.videolan.org/pub/videolan/vlc/. I suggest version 1.0.5. I will verify the problem with VLC 2.0.0 and later versions and fix it for next release.
If you have any questions, please use the forum indicated in the instructions. Please also do not hesitate to send me feedback, bug-reports, suggestions and things you would like to see implemented in a future release.
Finally I want to thank my beta-testers Didier_74, Daniele, Macchese, Vippen, Arshavir, Albertazzi65 and Colin Bell for their invaluable help in testing AndroidDreamer.
Change-log (for full change-log, see instructions in the application):
-ANDR beta 0.66 (March 31, 2012) - I have not had much time lately so nothing major was added. However, I removed the expiry-date although ANDR still remains a beta/experimental release.
-various releases published between January 5 to May 17, 2011
-ANDR beta 0.45 (January 2, 2011) - first release on Android Market
Good luck and Happy Streaming
