VLC plays TV France 24 - Anglais

VLC plays TV France 24 - Anglais

This post at WebTVUnleashed links to a UKTV2 play list which promised to allow users to use VLC to play a choice of live television.

However, most of the playlist entries give errors. The one that worked for me was France 24 in English. Here is the exact code for the playlist file "France24.xspf" I created and tested works with VLC both versions 1.0.5 and "1.10-rc-The Luggage":



Copy and paste the above text into a file such as "France24.xspf" and use VLC to open that file. It took VLC a few minutes to connect and buffer the stream but seems to be reliable. A selection of the messages VLC produced during buffering is below:
