This sounds great. I'm a big fan of mythstream so I was really looking
forward to giving this a go. I have created an account on the website
and selected some streams for my playlist, put the script in my
parsers/wwmp directory and added these lines to streams.res:


But when I select this in mythstream it says it's harvesting but then
says no urls found. Am I doing something wrong? Can I run it from the
command line somehow to debug?

The playlist URl returns this in a browser, BTW:
