Description:

KatchTV is an "Internet TV" application for KDE, otherwise known as a broadcatcher. It makes it easy to subscribe to "TV" channels from all over the internet in the form of podcasts, so that you can browse channels, download shows, and watch them, all from one convenient interface.

Supported features include:

* Video podcasts ("vodcasts").
* Bittorrent-based broadcatching.
* Audio podcasts.
* Multiple background downloads of media and updates of feeds, all while you watch/listen to your favourite shows.
* Manages any media you download, so that you don't lose track of your disk space.
* Built-in KHTML-based web browser, with specific customisations for this application.
* Automatically subscribes to any feeds you click on while browsing.
* Uses KDE's default embedded media players, for flexible configuration and KDE integration.
* Supports Macromedia Flash movies, if you have a suitable plugin.
* Built-in bookmarks of major vodcast/podcast sites, so you don't have to look to hard for great content.
* Stores episode details along with downloaded media to make tracking easier.
* Allows manually adding any feeds (in case some site makes it awkward to add them
* Can also read standard RSS news feeds, if you prefer not to run separate media and news aggregators.
* Feed for KatchTV updates, so you never have to miss the latest features.

Installation is easy, as long as your distro has PyKDE, PyQt, and a movie player capable of playing videos inside Konqueror, such as Kaffeine or MPlayer. Just untar to some directory like /usr/local, and run the KatchTV program. You can also make a symlink to that executable from a directory like /usr/local/bin, and KatchTV will work out where to find its files. Oh, you seem to also need konsole for PyKDE, although that's probably a bug in PyKDE.

Comments welcome; let me know if you've any problems using it.




Changelog:

* Display feeds in reverse chronological (latest first) order always (fixes a regression)
* Separately track unseen/seen vs. new/old episodes
* Better coloring for new/old/downloaded episodes, so it's easy to see what's new
* Various small bugfixes and improvements
* (internal) improvements to code documentation

(latest update is just to change homepage and download links to KatchTV's new site)

 Not working on Edgy

Im on Kubuntu 6.10 and I get the following error..

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "./KatchTV", line 59, in ?
mainFunc()
File "./KatchTV", line 31, in mainFunc
from KTVMainWindow import KTVMainWindow
File "/home/logan1/Documents/KatchTV/code/KTVMainWindow.py", line 11, in ?
from kparts import KParts
ImportError: /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/kparts.so: undefined symbol: _ZN11konsolePart8setPtyFdEi

I do run a few python-kde type apps without any issues this is a first for me.

"from kparts import KParts

This is almost certainly a fault on your system, or with the python-kde package you have installed. Most likely, your packages are out of sync with each other. The reason it's not appearing in other python-kde apps, is that many of them probably don't use kparts. A simple apt-get update followed by an apt-get upgrade may solve it. If not, you'll need to figure out the dependencies that are broken/incorrect, and fix them -- perhaps with help from one of the debian IRC channels or mailing lists.

 Download

Hi,

sorry, but I can not unpack any new version of katchTV. The tar-ball seams to be broken......

FF.,

Karsten.

It's working fine for me, and seemingly for others. You may just have a corrupted download, which you need to download again. How are you trying to open/extract it?

OK, same question: how are you trying to unpack it? With ark? tar? If tar, what command line? What error do you get? This is a bzip2 tarball, not a gzip tarball.

Thanks :)

Hi,,
I use the standard ARK inside KDE to unpack it. It shows "Das Entpacken ist fehlgeschlagen" = "The unpacking failed".....
Not more.

I use openSUSE 10.2, KDE 3.5.7

FF.,

Karsten.

OK, you should try right-clicking to save the file to your machine then, and seeing what tar says. Ark works fine for me. I suspect you've probably got a corrupted download.

In case you're not familiar with tar, the command line to use is:

tar -xvjf filename


The problem might also be that you don't have bzip2 (or, specifically, bunzip2 and bzcat) installed.

The tarball gave me the mentioned error-message when I unpacked as well, yet the same package was unpacked without any errors when I treated it via command-line, so I guess it might be some kinda bug in Ark (not the only one...).

Just a few words @KatchTV: It's a funny lil' app, thank you! It could need a little more stability, also a simple dialogue to set the player or the download-folder would be nice (letting the user guess how and where to set the symlink isn't a good way...). Still, I am very glad I stumbled over it. Great work!

 Problem on Archlinux

When I try to start KatchTV I get:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "./KatchTV", line 59, in <module>
mainFunc()
File "./KatchTV", line 31, in mainFunc
from KTVMainWindow import KTVMainWindow
File "/usr/local/share/KatchTV/code/KTVMainWindow.py", line 11, in <module>
from kparts import KParts
ImportError: libkonsolepart.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.

Any hint welcomed :-)

B.regards

Sounds like you don't have konsole installed. Your distro should have it, if it has other parts of KDE. If you do have it installed, then you might need to regenerate your library links or something. You should check with your distro's user support forums/mailing lists if you need help with that.

 Lots of features

 
 by zanoi on: Apr 25 2010
 
Score 50%

This program has an amazing number of features. Unfortunately it required python-kde3 bindings and since they aren't available anymore in Kubuntu I could only run it in Kubuntu Jaunty KDE3 Remix. I also tried to remove its KDE3 dependencies but that was too much work, especially since I never programmed in KDE3. It's a bit of a shame that such a featureful program won't run anymore as KDE3 is phased out. I might be able to take some inspiration from it for Videocatcher though.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
