Looking for someone to fix TardsPlaya
« on: April 11, 2019, 10:22 PM »
I am looking for someone to fix TardsPlaya. It is a program written in Delphi that buffers Twitch Streams and sends them to external media players (such as MPC-BE). Right now it isn't compatible with the new URL format used by the streams and it also doesn't skip the parts of the stream that contain advertisement. Its source code is available at https://github.com/Zero3K/tardsplaya.

Why not just use Streamlink Twitch GUI?

https://github.com/s...treamlink-twitch-gui

I use it all the time and it works great.

TardsPlaya is lighter in resources and can buffer multiple streams in one instance instead of one for each stream.

Since me is a Delphi Fan, I am currently downloading, watch this evening on it and write more when done.
Wich Delphi Version are you using (if it matters....)

What I have investigated is that I am not able to fix.
The lines how it get's it's stuff are programmed "okay" but it seems that they do not send "one file/stream" instead they send many small garbled packages where I do not know how to glue them together to be one file afterwards again.
It looks like they send raw data for their own player.
If you know fresh API's to solve that, let me know.

I am sorry!

1. Its not supposed to be one file. Its sending chunks to a media player such as MPC-BE via pipe://stdin.
2. I made a branch that has it almost working (it just stops requesting data to send to the player after 2 minutes or so, in the case of some streams, it stops after sending chunks to the player and most streams aren't requesting data because its missing chunked encoding support in the HTTP library that it is using). The branch can be found at https://github.com/Z...laya/tree/twitch-fix. I would also like to have the ability to have it buffer multiple streams in one instance finished (the other guy got it to have a bar which shows Stream[1] with no ability to add streams and have them be buffered by it).
