Updated as requested. Sorry for the delay.

With acestream-launcher just make this shell wrapper script default handler in firefox for acestream protocol, then once you click acestream:// url stream opens in mpv.

Before you can start a stream you have to send user data. Insert around line 66
the send USERDATA line

# Request the given Acestream PID from the engine, timeout after 30 sec

send "USERDATA \[\{\"gender\": \"1\"\}, \{\"age\": \"3\"\}\]\r"

set timeout 30
send "START $type $pid 0\r"

It doesn't work with 120 seconds timeout either (with Kodi it connects in 5 seconds so I don't think that was the issue here). I don't have iptables or any firewall that can be blocking your script. If you need logs or something, let me know.
Thank you an7oine.

That PID works for me using aceget. You could try and increase the timeout duration (in the script) from its default value of 30sec. Does any other PID work for you?

I have "Video request timed out, broadcast unavailable?" every time. I tried the same link in kodi and it works.

That's what I see in acestreamengine when I execute your script:

First off, you need to leave out the 'acestream://' scheme marker.

Second, the script was not originally intended for what you want. However, I just updated it to display an externally playable URL (instead of a simple success indication) if the standard-out has not been redirected, e.g.

$ aceget.exp 62062 PID 0a1b2c3d4e5f
[spits out a URL like]

So you copy the URL, open up another terminal, then execute

When done watching, you hit return on the original console to finish the ACE session.

Hi an7oine, I can't make it work either.
I start acestream-engine --client-console first and then I execute your script:
aceget.exp 62062 PID acestream://***

I want to play it with mpv:

It tries to connect but fails every time. I can play the same stream with kodi.

I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.

an7oine commented on 2015-05-18 07:41

With '***' signifying all hex digits following 'acestream://', type:
aceget.exp 62062 PID ***

So how do you play if you have acestream://*** ?
