@streamwatcher2013 ... anyway... I'm not concerned about where it downloads, just as long as it does from the originally requested source of 123tvnow... any ideas on that specific front as we've obviously proven it'll download to the /tmp/ folder.
@streamwatcher2013 - I tried your script and it downloaded to the /tmp/ folder no worries then got the same error as-in "could not move to download folder - leaving in temp". The file downloaded and plays perfectly.
can you please try downloading it in LSP via youtube-dl (the accompanying plugin) to see if it works on your end? and if it does, what versions of Kodi/LSP/youtube-dl do you have as mine doesn't seem to download... it says "Download Failed ... ERROR: m3u8 detected but..."...
@streamwatcher2013 - Fox News HD works for me. But I use the exact same code with "NHL Network", it does not work (same URL except it has /nhl-network/ instead of /fox-news-hd/ )... it tries to load the video but then immediately fails to play it.
I can get Fox News working via this post -> https://www.tvaddons.co/community/posts/435330 (e.g. "123tvnow.com/watch/fox-news-hd")
The same code does not work for this link, though -> "123tvnow.com/watch/nhl-network"
Can somebody please assist me in modifying the code in that post to work...
