Here’s how I did it.
First, I bought a Raspberry Pi 3 and an SD card from ModMyPi in the U.K. They have good prices, and inexpensive and quick shipping (6 days from order to receipt).
Next, I installed OSMC, a Raspberry Pi-focused version of Kodi, on the SD card. OSMC is very, very easy to install: just download an installer to your desktop or laptop computer, burn the image onto the SD card, and insert the SD card into the Raspberry Pi.
Powering on the Raspberry Pi with the OSMC SD card inserted leads through a simply configuration process — enter wifi credentials, set time zone, etc. The most important option to be sure to check is the one to enable SSH access to the device, which will allow a file to be transferred to it later.
Now is the somewhat tricky part.
On another computer, create a file called peileg.strm with the following contents:
#EXTM3U #EXTINF:-1,PEI Legislative Assembly+ http://http-delivery.isilive.ca/live/_definst_/pei/live/chunklist.m3u8
Now you need to get that file onto the Raspberry Pi.
First, you need to find the IP address of your Pi; navigate to System > System info and note the value beside IP address. In this example, it’s 192.168.2.18:
Next, from the command line of the computer where you created the peileg.strm file, transfer the file to the Pi:
scp ./peileg.strm firstname.lastname@example.org:/home/osmc/Movies
The 192.168.2.18 is the IP address you noted earlier.
You’ll be prompted to enter the password for the username osmc on your Pi (default is osmc; you should change it!).
Now that the file is on your Pi, you simply need to play it.
Navigate to Videos > Files > Add videos. In the Add video source dialog, click Browse, then select Home folder and click OK. If a Set Content dialog pops up you can ignore it and click OK.
At this point you should have video source called osmc, and inside it, under Movies, you’ll see the peileg.strm:
To play the Legislative Assembly livestream, simply click on that file and, presto:
