Flemish TV channel with lots of free content. You need to log in in order to view the content (cf. Vier).

Website: http://www.q2.be

No specific Android app but probably comparable to the VTM app as they're basically the same company.

Thanks for looking into it!

    I am just looking at this, but this is basically vtm.be, but with some different URL's. Should be super simple :D. Is it correct that vtm.be and q2.be share the accounts for log in?

    Lol, I actually have it working :D (for Retrospect 4.1.2).

    However, I did have to rename the settings for the username/password as it is now shared between Q2 and VTM. So you will need to re-configure these with one of the 2 channels.

    If you want to test this, download the zip file and extract the .py and .json file and overwrite the existing ones in the net.rieter.xot.channel.be\vtmbe\ folder. The DELETE the .pyo and/or .pyc file. Run Retrospect once before opening the add-on settings (you will get a notification regarding Retrospect Initialization). Then set your username/password and try the Q2 channel. I did not yet update graphics, but just see if it works.

    Hi, when watching the livestream, the stream always starts from the beginning of the program ( q2 & vtm) Is there any workaround for this? I would like to watch the champions league and skip the the talk show before the match. Fast forward also does not work. Any idea?

    Hi Bas,

    if i watch using the website Q2/live then the stream starts live (not at the beginning of the program) and i kan skip backwards/forwards using the slider without problems.

    I checked, but for me it is difficult to force this from Python code. And for now, I don't see any way to auto forward, unless somebody can figure out how to modify the M3u8 URLs to start at the current time. I tried to play with the timestamps, but without success.
