Forum member 'trio' has created this. It functions like pupTV, except supports easy adding and removing of channels. It is designed specifically for Gxine, unlike pupTV that is switchable between Gxine and Mplayer.

I decided to put Pstreamvid into 4.3pre-beta instead of pupTV, though of course the latter will be a PET available at

The Pstreamvid package did not have a version number, so I assigned it "1.0".

I would have included a link to the forum thread for Pstreamvid, but the forum is down.

Great, I will post the pet in new thread when forum is up. (I asked mod to delete the old thread last time, was too busy with pwidgets, couldn't handle it). Thanks

No TV for 4.3
A note of caution. Pstreamvid and pupTV are still very rough. Neither warrants inclusion in a polished Puppy. I urge that both apps be omitted from 4.3 final (and made available as .pets).

Well if the Murga forum was up atm I would post there.

Dogone.. what do you find rough about Pstreamvid? Trio has had this code for awhile, part of Pwidgets, the TV widget, all he has done is adapt it for Gxine, it was originally for Mplayer. It works ok for me, and is only 2Kb.

I found the reason BBC is out, they decided to dance with Realplayer (oh dear!).
