I would like to know whether anyone can tell me how to make Kodi play links correctly when coming in via Yatse. This works for Youtube, TED and a few others but as can be taken from Yatse’s logs there is some magic happening (some UriHandler at work) which e.g. transforms links in the form of https://youtu.be/… into plugin://plugin.video.youtube/… which Kodi then can handle appropriately. Unfortunatelly this doesn’t work by far for every link. As in my case, I would like to share links from several german TV station apps with Yatse and by that having Kodi playback those videos correctly. For that I have to parse the URL in order to get to the actual video stream but I don’t know how to make Kodi or Yatse to route those specific links correctly. I wrote a small Kodi plugin, hoping that I could somehow intercept those URLs but for now this doesn’t work as intended. So my question is: can anyone tell me what this UriHandler inside the Yatse logs is and whether this is an integral part of Yatse where a certain set of URLs is hard-coded and transformed and if so, whether I have any chance to intercept the URLs which are sent to Kodi in order to parse them with my own plaugin?
I appreciate any kind of help.
