So it has been a year since the last time I tried to get this to work. In that time the much needed libraries were finally updated to support AES-128 encrypted HLS streams. As such, I decided to take another crack at it and got a simple player working. I am still working on adding features so that it has everything the flash player has and then I will start adding things that it doesn't. It will require both your username and password so that it can authenticate the video streams, but that info is only stored locally.

Features as of now:

-Respects the chosen resolution via the default resolution buttons
-Works with the ?t= query parameter
-Autoplays the next episode (doesn't update the rest of the page yet)
-Persistent volume
-Adjustable Buffer length via the options page
-Properly updates viewing history and queue (should be more accurate than the default player, especially for shorts)
-Option to skip Openings or Endings (doesn't work on the first episode of a show)
-Supports a single pre-roll ad for free users.




I'll post updates in this thread and try to keep this post updated.
