Streaming from the Cloud to Samy or so

this is not really a Samsung nor a B Series only topic. (@admin, move if)

I'm sitting very often on my laptop and surfing the Web and find
some interesting videos which i don't want to watch on the laptop.
Better on TV, Phone or what ever.

So i wrote this little JavaScript, it's a Bookmarklet

Code: Select all

and it's kinda cool ;)

It works at the moment only on (MP4). But it would possible on every streaming platform on Web
which streams direct files (mp4, flv ..) mostly via flash but not rtmp protocol.

How it works:
When you are on e.g. movie-stream or other sites (i recommend a adblocker) and click
the movie you want and they redirect you to streamcloud. Then you wait the 10s and you see the movie-player.
Then you press the Bookmarklet and it find out the Streaming file (url) and save it in your playlist.
Now you can stream it were you want: TV, Phone or what ever.
You need to add on you device only a RSS podcast or a permanent latest url which redirect you to your last bookmark.

What's to do (step by step):
1. Go to and set a playlist name.
(It should unique like a password for your playlist)
2. Bookmark the now personal Bookmarklet [Save file] for your playlist.
3. Use the Bookmark, that you have something in your playlist
4. Use now the [RSS feed] or the [Last Video] link in your player

Its important that you use the same connection with your laptop and the player, because they authorize the
file only for your IP. If you are on the same Wifi or LAN it should be fine.
The file link you saved is only valid for some hours but i use the "Red Button" Tool and WGET to download it on my Samy.

i hope someone can use it like me

it works with DriveCast and Samsung YouTube Widget on B Series!
for YouTube you should use a bookmark file like this:

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<rss xmlns:atom="" xmlns:openSearch="" xmlns:gml="" xmlns:georss="" xmlns:media="" xmlns:yt="" xmlns:gd="" version="2.0">
<title><![CDATA[Latest SamyGO]]></title>
<description>The Last Video url you bookmarked.</description>
<pubDate>Tue, 22 Jan 2013 12:00:11 +0000</pubDate>
<media:player url=""></media:player>
<media:content url="" type="video/mp4" duration="279"></media:content>
<media:thumbnail url=""></media:thumbnail>
<yt:statistics viewCount="20298857"></yt:statistics>
<gd:rating average="4.861082"></gd:rating>
you can change the playlist name in

unfortunately both DreamCast and YouTube plays only full aspect ratio like 16:9 but
in TV Shows like Big.Bang.Theory it works like charm.
