Hello Dear Readers!

White Raven V0.2 is here:

I'm created a torrent version of my White Raven app for Samsung Smart TV F series. Root is not required.
This version is based on Popcorn-Time API and an online server to stream torrents.

If you are interested, please watch the following youtube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-LIydH5fOj8
Or visit my patreon site: https://www.patreon.com/murdock


Original first post about White Raven V0.1:
White Raven V0.1 based on Alluc API! No longer works!Show

With White Raven you can watch Movies And TV Shows from free video hoster sites!


How to install?

You have 2 options to install:

1. Extract the downloaded zip archive's content to an usb flash drive root directory. Plug in the flash drive to your TV and run the White Raven Installer application. Turn off, then on your TV.

2. Extract WhiteRaven.zip archive content from WhiteRavenData directory to your TV's user widget directoy. Turn off, then on your TV.

For now, you need to register a free alluc.ee api key to get movie and tv show links. (This will need to improve [try to find alternatives] in the future.)

White Raven uses the standard web interface to start and stop native code in program start and exit.

!!! You need at least 100MB free space on your television !!!
!!! This is just a beta version !!!
!!! Use this at your own risk !!!

Download Link

!!! Important changes !!!

Because the Alluc search engine has been discontinued, this version no longer works. The download link stays here because education purpose. You can modify the server source code if you want. In the future I will concentrating a torrent based White Raven version instead.

I also wrote a non root version for F, but i will need to fine-tune some environment settings.
The server starts with the TV and this is ok, but the script can't access online content.
I'm working on it.

Thank you very much sir for this application. I very much appreciate your work and I would like to ask you to implement subtitles for each movie.

Firstly, thanks to @Murdoch for this app. A great first version. I hope you continue developing this.

In response to the above question,I sideload my apps by simply copying them to USB and plugging that into the TV. My F-Series is NOT rooted. I simply copied the WhiteRaven folder from the WhiteRavenData folder onto my USB and it loaded up first time.

As for the app and it's requirement for a Alluc.ee account API key. I see the Alluc search engine has now closed / ceased. I beleive the API will also close this month. Are there any alternative API's you can use?

FYI - the app accepted my API key, loaded movie coverart and showed the different web domains to stream from (i.e. openload.co, vidto.me etc). For whatever reason though, I could not get a single video to start. API already limited maybe?

Hello DarkHorse!

I'm working the replacement of alluc api.

The Samsung Apps use javascript and embedded native codes only. The last step i can use javascript is the alluc api request, that give back the hosting sites list.

To resolve the direct video links, (that our TVs can play) i need to use native code program. This is phantomjs compiled for arm devices and requires root to start. Sorry, but without this the program can't resolve direct stream urls.

Hi Murdock.

Thanks for the info. Thats a shame there is no alternative in JS to resolve the video links. I have my Samsung TV loading all my favourite TV widgets from USB without rooting, so it would have been great to have WhiteRaven doing the same.

I wonder how BBC, ITV, iView etc do it without native code?
