Version 1.1.0+matrix.1 (07.11.2022) - fixed: m3u-Liste zur Integration der Livestreams des Addons in den 'PVR IPTV Simple Client' (neue Parameter) - fixed: Ein paar VOD-Streams der API.v.3 lassen sich NICHT abspielen (daher jetzt Wechsel zu den VOD-Streams der API.v.1, die auch im Browser verwendet werden) - comment: *Leider kommt es in letzter Zeit zu Abspielproblemen bei nur einigen wenigen VOD-Streams der API.v.3, dabei festzustellen ist dass sich die StreamUrls der API.v.3 vs. API.v.1 (neuere Variante) im Vergleich zu früher stark unterscheiden !* - comment: *Daher werden die VOD- und Event-Streams dieses Addons ab jetzt von der API.v.1 ausgelesen (thx @Pati für die Vorlage in seinem "plugin.video.tvnow.de"), die Metadaten kommen weiterhin von der API.v.3 (da sie dort ausführlicher sind).* - comment: *Der einzige Nachteil der sich durch diese Veränderung ergibt ist, dass der "Gesehen Status" sämtlicher Sendungen bis zum diesem Update (durch Anpassung der Pfade) verloren geht - SORRY !!!*
