AFL plugins for XBMC

UPDATE: Plugins now updated and working for the 2013 season!

Whilst being in London, it’s been hard to get my AFL fix. So to keep up with what’s going on, I’ve created two new XBMC plugins: AFL Video and AFL Radio.

AFL Video

You can browse all the latest videos from the AFL web site, including match replays, interviews and highlights.

You have a bunch of channels to choose from, including a team channel. The team channel will list the videos specific to your club.

Cats TV

Match replays are usually available 12-24 hours after the match has been played.

AFL Radio

Unfortunately, you can’t watch the games live without some sort of paid subscription – so the radio streams are the next best thing.

AFL Radio

Just choose the stream you want and away it goes. I’m not sure how stable this will be long term due to how the stream works, but so far so good.

Interestingly, most of the streams work outside of the AFL game calls, but most of the streams are only 64k WMA, so the bit rate is a little low.



You can grab the latest ZIP files from the Github project download pages for AFL Video and AFL Radio. You can then choose the ZIP files from the XBMC Addon install from Zip file menu option.

These will also be included in the AU CatchUp TV XBMC repository too.



For any issues, please file a bug at issue tracker and please include a copy of your XBMC log file.
