Can you post a link to the source for the wm6 build. I have a location free device, but the lack of a mobile client forced my move to a hava device.

The player is not even close to opensource

Hi i have been working on reverse engineering the LocationFree Protocol for quite some time now and i can assure you that the software is not opensource.


They opensourced an excerpt of the LiveDotCom Libraries that they use for their stream transport and even those files are incomplete. That is just to be compliant with the GPL.

The whole proprietary part remains closed source.

However i have been making some progess and have already got a proof-of-concept python implementation that can connect to a LF-B1EU Box and receive a few seconds of the stream.

This stream is encrypted. Thanks to this guy "http_//code_google_com/p/lftv" (sorry i am not allowed to post links in this forum) i even got a hint on how to decrypt it.

Currently i can decrypt the video frames but the whole thing is just a bunch of scripts and loosely coupled code that is far from anything one could call an application.

However i am still working on it and having quite some progress. So i would be interested in who would still like such an app and what boxes do you use?

I have the 1st one that came out model # LF-B1
That's great that you are working on this project!! I will test anything whenever if needed
Locationfree ran great on Windows mobile 6 with a 3g connection

LF-B1 thats good to hear since i have a LF-B1EU which means the commandos to the streaming server should be the same.

What already works is to connect to the LocationFree Box, decrypt and save the frames to disk. Those frames are then decoded with a standalone executable to create the video frames.

i know this is still a very very proof of concept but it is very promising.

I'll keep you posted when a testable program is ready

That's great progress. I no nothing about makin apps but I am very good messing with my devices I guess I follow directions well so when I say this it might sound stupid but I had a idea maybe it will work
The PSP runs at max 333 MHz all of the android devices are atleast 800mhz I have a inspire running at 1.6 GHz so I think I would be fine. Now is there a way to take the locationfree player prx files that are found in the PSP and edit them to work on the android. I don't know if u have a PSP but I am able to extract those prx files out of the PSP and they also available online
What I am saying is to make some sort of half ass PSP emulator just to run locationfree player. The PSP has a emulator for the PSP called booster wich puts the PSP firmware on the PSP memory card to run old PSP firmware. Locationfree works with this emulator I don't know if any if this will work or help you with your code but I can get you any of these files if needed

I am so glad you are working on this . When I heard Sony was making the xperia I was so happy cause I thought they would implement the lfp but they dropped the ball with lack of support

Well i guess the prx does not help me much and emulating the PSP on the Device would be a completely different level of complexity.

My biggest problem currently is to decode the MPEG4 Frames on the android device since i don't yet know how to feed the raw mpeg4 frames to the media framework.

If that is not possible i am either going to use the NDK to link with the libavcodec library or i am going to make a repeater on the device that decrypts and resends the rtp stream locally so that it can be played with the media framework as if it were a normal network stream.
