Re: [slim] Is there a simple applet I can install to play m3u8 streams on SBT?

An m3u8 file is a playlist file, the actual URL will be in the file. Do you have an example file that you are having an issue with? Have you tried the same file but using LMS locally? You may find LMS will transcode if it's actually streaming in a format the SBT can't play. Sent from my Nexus 7

What about plain Ubuntu server (or Ubuntu desktop with the gui). Ubuntu seems to have pretty wide hardware support so I guess it is most likely to work on your old laptop. Don't know crashplan but Ubuntu is quite popular so if it has something for Linux it will most likely work on Ubuntu?

There is no full URL inside the m3u8 playlist but it generates a file which concatenated with playlist URL - gives an URL that can be played. But AFAICT it can only be played once and then it becomes invalid - LMS looks at an URL twice (initially to check the format and then secondly to tell
