As I arrived at TELECOM Bretagne, I discovered the ResEl : the students’ network. I discovered too that they were broadcasting all free TV channels on the network. The problem : the recommended software to watch these channel was VLC, a very powerful media player, but very complicated to use and not really adapted to watch TV.
So I decided to create a Java multiplatform open-source piece of software that controls VLC with a more adapted interface: TvOnResEl. I released the first version the 16th of october 2006.
In its present version, TvOnResEl allows to watch and save TV, program savings and browse the TV program.
