WinGTShare unofficial tool

Post by hugoduro »

Hi there!

I have developed an unofficial port of GTShare tool for Windows platform.

The purpose of this tool is to stream all channels on Windows, since I'm facing problems playing severall channels with VLC and other Apps.
I think this should work with every GTMedia V8 Series with SAT>IP support.

This is still an APLHA version, with a lot of tweaks and validations to do, but feel free to report any issue or suggest improvements.

Hi there HD, great idea and will be very welcome if you can tweak it, as you say. I have used it a little today and have some comments, as you asked for. My PC runs W7 and I have no problems with the sound as I use the PC for an Xtream service I use on the PC. I also use a V8x and the GTShare, I leave the box on all night so I can watch TV in the bedroom with an Android iptv box.

Here are my comments >>

1.- I have to set the box IP every time I run the program, I use a static IP on the V8X. Maybe a .cfg to load the IP.

2.- when loading a channel I get the "unresponsive" message in the window, the message goes away when the channel list loads. During this time the video on the house TV is frozen.

3.- when I load a channel the video screen opens, but I have no sound... I cannot see a volume control and the service menu goes unresponsive and stays that way until I close the video screen with the "x". If that's the way it is, maybe better to minimize the service screen once the video screen opens.

4.- I have a few favorites saved on the V8x, when I select favorites on the service menu, first I get the unresponsive message and then it goes to favorites, but it does not load the favorites list.

Again if you can sort out some of these problems this will make it more attractive as all of the other programs are for Android.
Good luck

Hi alex.c and juan_vale, thank you for your feedback.

I've made a new version with some fixes and improvements, including juan_vale reported issues.
Now there is an xml config fle (WinGTShareTool.exe.config) where you can configure your box IP Address, as well you can choose your own external player. (this version now comes with Media Player Classic by default).
I'm not really sure if this work with portable MPC-HC included because i have it installed.
Can you please try this?
For a better performance I suggest that you keep the MPC-HC window opened while switching channels in WinGTShareTool window.

Download WinGTShareTool_0.2_ALPHA_20200116:

I think it is better to use vlc than media player.
Why didn't Gtmedia plan to take advantage of VLC's Sat-ip function?

Hi avalanche,

if you prefer VLC player you can try edit WinGTShareTool.exe.config file like this:

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<configuration>
	<appSettings>
        <add key="default_ip" value="192.168.0.17" />
	<add key="external_player" value="C:\\PROGRA~2\\VideoLAN\\VLC\\vlc.exe --fullscreen" />
    </appSettings>
</configuration>
I really prefer Media Player Classic because in my case VLC doesn't open most of Hispasat (30W) channels.

Hi cpr43,

Can you please send the error printscreen?

I think you should need to have installed .NET framework v.4.5.2 (compatible):

Hi cpr43,
thank you for your feedback.

I have V8X, not V8UHD and i thought it was similar.
I will try to investigate more about V8UHD to make it compatible.

I tried with V8X, with V8 Turbo and with V8 UHD (here doesn't work).

Channels in 4K with V8 Turbo:

Hi Delirium,
Great feedback!

I think V8UHD should have a different API.
I will try to investigate more about V8UHD to make it compatible.
