Pluto.tv

Hey All,

Is there anyone willing to have a look at the pluto.tv scraper INI and update it.. Looks like it just not parsing the json file correctly. e.g Gets the json file fine, but doesn't seam to restrict to channel or scrap the right title etc..

e.g. below is what's returned for ONE Channel. But its completely borked..

<tv generator-info-name="WebGrab+Plus/w MDB &amp; REX Postprocess -- version V2.1.9 -- Jan van Straaten" generator-info-url="http://www.webgrabplus.com">
<channel id="Action Movies (PlutoTV)">
<display-name lang="en">Action Movies (PlutoTV)</display-name>
<url>http://www.pluto.tv</url>
</channel>
<programme start="20190816144500 +0000" stop="20190816164500 +0000" channel="Action Movies (PlutoTV)">
<title lang="en">Girls! Girls! Girls!</title>
<desc lang="en">Elvis plays a charter-boat skipper who helps tourists land the big ones. Of course, plenty of beautiful girls want to land Elvis. But there’s something Elvis likes almost as much as romance–a boat! Elvis plays a charter-boat skipper who helps tourists land the big ones. Of course, plenty of beautiful girls want to land Elvis.

Dunno how good it is as it is one day only, but later will post it and search if they have other sources

WOW did you get something working already? If you want me to give it a run and verify i'm happy to do that.. One day of EPG is better than 0 days.

Mat, the scraper you update has been working awesome.. HOWEVER it appears pluto TV has done and update.. It appears that now the channels guide is getting is source from

https://api.pluto.tv/v2/channels?start=2019-09-04T00:00:00.000Z&stop=201...

and NOT

http://cdn-api.prod.pluto.tv/v2/timelines/2014-08-01T16:00:00.000Z/2014-...

The New url list all the channels and then has Timelines as an element for each channel.

Any change to get the scrapper updated?

Hi, I signed up/made a donation yesterday and got the software installed without issue.

My main reason was to be able to use it for Pluto but whenever I try to run the cron process I get:

error downloading page: Error: NameResolutionFailure

Since the ini is encrypted I'm not sure which part is not working. Is there any chance of an update for this ini?

Thank you :)

Thank you for getting back so fast!

My nslookup seems ok as well:

Non-authoritative answer:
Name: pluto.tv
Address: 99.84.194.71
Name: pluto.tv
Address: 99.84.194.116
Name: pluto.tv
Address: 99.84.194.128
Name: pluto.tv
Address: 99.84.194.55

I am running this from the linuxserver docker if that makes a difference.

EDIT:
Changed my connection a bit and I don't get the DNS error anymore. Now I get this:

Unable to update channel Food TV
Generic syntax exception:
message:
no index page data received from Food TV
unable to update channel, try again later
No guide data to restore

It works!! Thank you so much for taking the time to update that for us!

One day is fine for now because I'm not recording anything anyway.

Is it quite a bit more complex to add more days?

the site only provide one day, unless you can see a schedule with more days logging in.

Thank you for clarifying and also for the update yesterday. It's working great now!

Just in case anyone is following along, it appears that they provide ~8hrs of guide data at a time and not a complete 24hr schedule.

It works but requires running the script more often to keep the guide up to date.
