Interesting site.
However is bing build at the moment I think.
Schedules does not corresponds with the schedules published on other sites.  And there is at least a 5 h difference in schedule.
 
Will keep aon eye on it.

First attempt.  Used the Belgium - TV-Vlaanderen.
Need to configure the website, and save the cookie file as: belgium.yo.tv.cookies.txt
Because the need for this configuration, there will be a need for a different Siteini for each country/system (I think)
 
Also there is a small problem with the timeoffset:
Thje url index is:
site {url=belgie.yo.tv|timezone=Europe/Brussels|maxdays=7|cultureinfo=en|charset=UTF-8|titlematchfactor=50}
url_index{url ()|http://belgie.yo.tv/api/GS?cid=|channel|,&offset=+02.00&day=|urldate|}
 
This contains an offset.  But has to be changed each time DST changes.  We could overcome this by using:
 
site {url=belgie.yo.tv|timezone=UTC|maxdays=7|cultureinfo=en|charset=UTF-8|titlematchfactor=50}
url_index{url ()|http://belgie.yo.tv/api/GS?cid=|channel|,&offset=+00.00&day=|urldate|}
 
But then a XMLTV file will be created in GMT with no corrections for DST.  This is fine for the enigma2 boxes which I use, but could be problematic for other purposes.
 
Francis or Jan:  Do you have a better suggestion here.

Nice. Thank you. Could you possibly make one for Canada ((UTC-04:00) Atlantic Time) as well. Much appreciated :)

I need to fill in a ZIP code if I want to select a region.  Which one?
Secondly:  If I search a ZIP code on the net and fill one in, this does not seem to work.
 
Will try to produce something today.

Postal code here is B4N 2W2. If you need a provider, try Eastlink. Thanks.

OK.  Here my first attempt for the Canada channels.
You have to make your own channels file (depending on the region you select on the website - and which is included in the cookies)
See the info file
 
I think I cracked the timezone settings.  Hopefully it is correct.
The clue is:

url_index{url ()|http://canada.yo.tv/api/GS?cid=|channel|,&offset=+00.00&day=|urldate|}
index_temp_1.scrub {single ()|data-time='||'}
index_start.modify {calculate (format=utctime)|'index_temp_1'}

Jan/Francis am I correct?
 
I made three versions.
index version (canada.yo.tv-index.ini): uses only the index page.  But for a bunch of channels this maybe enough.  Blinding fast Siteini
normal version (canada.yo.tv.ini) :  Uses the pop-window for grabbing episode info and a more complete description (fast siteini)
full version (canada.yo.tv-full.ini):  Uses the linked webpage for descriptio, episode info and Cast.  (slow Siteini)

Willy,
 
Nice work.
You are correct about the timezone issue.
 
On your previous question, if we had other suggestions, I got the following answer:
yo.tv did me think of an other website that has worldwide support (tvguide.com)
I have created a siteini (starting from yours) to get the info. Just that mine doesn't need cookies.
 
This is one siteini file for all the coutries/channels on yo.tv.
The only thing you need to do, is to first create a provider.xml file and after that a channels.xml file.
 
This is how you do it:
1. use a clean config.xml file
2. add a line from the yo.tv_countries.xml (just pick your country and append your zipcode)
eg.
<channel update="i" site="yo.tv" site_id="COUNTRY:belgie,ZIPCODE:9700" xmltv_id="Belgium">Belgium</channel>
or
<channel update="i" site="yo.tv" site_id="COUNTRY:canada,ZIPCODE:B4N 2W2" xmltv_id="Canada">Canada</channel>-->
3. now comment out between @auto_xml_provider_start and auto_xml_provider_end
4. run WG++ (rename the yo.tv.channels.xml file into yo.tv_providers.xml)
5. uncomment 3. again
6. replace the country config line with a line from the yo.tv_providers.xml file
7. now comment out between @auto_xml_channel_start and @auto_xml_channel_end
8. run WG++ (now you got the real yo.tv.channels.xml file)
9. uncomment 7. again.
 
now you can use yo.tv.channels.xml to configure WG++ and get your channels data (without cookies)
 
If your EPG importer doesn't convert the UTC times correct, you can change the timezone setting in the siteini to the correct one.
For Belgium this would be:
timezone=Europe/Brussels
 
Hope you can test this procedure and see if there is any issue with it.
I tested Telenet and the canada version. ( seems to work).
 
Only implemented the index version. (other versions should be similar, I think)

I tried the Siteini's in a few versions of WG++ and in the most recent they failed.
Use for the start scrub:
index_start.scrub {regex||data-time='(.*?)'||}
index_start.modify {calculate(format=utctime)}
instead of:
index_temp_1.scrub {single ()|data-time='||'}
index_start.modify {calculate (format=utctime)|'index_temp_1'}

The versions which do not require a cookiefile, and also only one Siteini for all, as being developped by Francis is further developped in a index, normal and Full version.
Index:  Blinding fast
Normal: Use of the pop window, with the normal description
Full:  Use of the detail pages, this includes actors, director and some other miscaleeoneous info.  Very slow though.

Some countries do not require a postalcode. (like Germany and France)
This requirse a sligthly different approach.
In that case change the line in the Siteini

*url_index{url|http://##COUNTRY##.yo.tv/api/setting?id=##ZIPCODE##&lookupid=1}

in

*url_index{url|http://##COUNTRY##.yo.tv/api/setting?lookupid=1}
 
I have changed the info file accordingly.

Hi Yurek99,

I'm not very impressed with the UK channel list to be honest (am based in UK).  TVguide.co.uk is great for UK and far more extensive.  I've attached what channel lists my post code produced.  Oh and I've also attached east cost USA channels for anyone that's interested.  Cheers!

A dedicated version of yo.tv for the US East Coast - Time Warner Cable selected as provider for the channel list creation.

The difference between the first and the last ini file is that in case of a series the episode title  and season/episode info is grabbed.  (Corrected an error)

The difference between the regular ini and the full is the Director/actor is grabbed in the full version.  This is however slow.

If you want to donate anything, pls. do so like Frnacis has indicated.

To all admins, the idea of having these .ini files created is extremely helpful since this particular site has EPG data for almost every country.

I'm really looking forward to get both the Colombian and Mexican .ini files working but even though I tried and tried, I can't seem to get it to work.

I would really appreciate if you could guide me on how to have these ini created since if these are cracked then it would make no sense to work on other site because this one has all countries within it.

Again, thanks for all your work and I hope we can resume this thread.

Attached the dedicated Columbia version.

Yes, the general version can handle all countries, but for beginners it is complicated.  So I decided to produce a dedicatedversion for Columbia.

I will also produce one for Mexico. 

I think this version is easier to adapt to other countries as well.

 

There is a normal version and a full version.  The full version is however slow, and most channels do not have more information in the full version.  Only the channels with movies and series will benifit from the full version.

Attached the dedicated Mexico version.

The full version seems to have a problem (but so has the website itself when you click on the show to see to full details - maybe this is temporarily)

Thank you Willy, that's superb! I'm at work right now but I'll check both files when I get home. I'm still eager to learn how you were able to create these so fast. I'm guessing you get that with experience, but I'm sill not sure how did you create the channellist.xml and how to populate the .ini file with the parameters from each yo.countryname.tv site.

I'm guessing I'd have to look into the Dev tools using the F12 key and start from there, I'll take another look at the PDF guide and if you have any pointers I would really appreciate them as I really want to learn and start developing all the missing .ini files for the rest of the countries, mainly the ones from South America first and then continue with the rest.

Compare the both SiteIni's and look at the differences between them.

You will have a grasp on how to construct a new SiteIni for another country. 

For the channels file:

Open the yo.tv website for the country you are interested in a webbrowser, and select the desired provider.

Now save the cookies to a file called: channels.yo.tv.cookies.txt  in the Webgrab++ data folder.

Activate the channels creation statements (which are at the bottom in the SiteIni) and run Webgrab++

Do not forget to disable these statements later on.  (Otherwise nothing is grabbed)

This yo.tv grabber is a funny one.

I am using the attached one.

For your purposes you may have to delete all the lines after:

*For classical credits - remove the next lines

 

These lines do a bit of reordening data, which you may not want (this is for my own benifit).

Thanks Willy, I will take into account your advise and hope to soon post a new .ini site for other countries. I hope not to bother with more questions but I guess that's the only way to learn.

Thanks,

Mariano.

I totally forgot about this siteini.

I further fine tuned it (thanks @1NSdbZVbpZDX) and have now uploaded it to our EPG channels page.

Also added a _info.txt file to help users with the creation of their .channels.xml file.

yup it's a multilang multiculture conflicting ini (wonder all  russian bugs in it)

fixed subtitles & episodes

here's my solution....

ps. made actors attributes more readable 

just realized the url_index needs an offset number also (mi location is -04), timezone won't work  so I manually set it this way:

url_index{url|http://##COUNTRY##.yo.tv/api/GS?cid=##CHANNEL_ID##,&offset=-04,&day=|urldate|}

else all shows past 05:00 AM will be shifted to next day, leaving gaps in the EPG. is there any way to tell WG++ to set UTC localtime as a variable?

Today I checked Italian provider, if I run channel file creation on:

    <channel update="i" site="yo.tv" site_id="COUNTRY:italia,PROVIDER_ID:325187" xmltv_id="Sky Italia HD">Sky Italia HD</channel>

don't get any of the sky channel, actually I always get the same 117 channels with any of the Italian providers. Is that correct ?

and it works

u've goto run channel file creation with:

<channel update="i" site="yo.tv" site_id="COUNTRY:italia,ZIPCODE:" xmltv_id="Italy">Italy</channel>

Turkiye:

Attached the channels list for Turkey.  This has been made with my version of yo.tv.  It may work on the published versions, but I am not sure.

It will work in the yo.tv and yo.tv-full version  (if you change the site to site="yo.tv-full") in the SiteIni versions I have attached.

Do not run the grab between 0h00 and 0h200 - UTC+2.  Or if you are in UTC+3 between 0h00 and 0h300

Hello.. Finally I found another site instead of yo.tv which is the official site of Digiturk Satellite.

Could you make the Epg site of http://www.digiturk.com.tr/yayin-akisi     ?

 

And I use xml file but I don't know how to use ini file at Iptv. If I only use xml file, will it update itself?
