News Streamer provides a script to play the most recent France 2 news report with Mplayer.

The French TV station France 2 has been kind enough to make its news broadcasts available on the Internet. However, this has been done in a way that's not particularly friendly to non-Microsoft products.

This script makes things easier by checking for the availability of the most recent news report and then playing it using Mplayer.

The checking for the availability of an episode is done using a mmsrip.

If it's useful to you to watch the news at a different speed, a speed parameter may be passed to this script (eg 'f2 0.5' to play at half speed)

If the most recent episode is not available, this script will keep searching back until it finds the most recent available episode.

It won't keep searching for ever, however, and gives up after 10 episodes.

To be honest, if it doesn't find anything after 10 episodes it probably means that there's a problem at their end, they've change their URL format, or you've got some kind of network trouble.

Requirements:

mmsrip
