Getting Playon Content
Because I was able to get content from my Tablo to my Plex server I started a journey to see how I could be getting Playon content. Some things (such as items off Amazon Video) are against the Terms of Service to record, so some caution needs to be used. That doesn’t mean its not doable, its just against the Terms of Service. Though there are many websites that Playon scrapes the contents of. In this case I am not aware of ever agreeing to any terms, so their are some things that can be recorded. In the advent that you do record something and are unsure of the TOS, A Playon recording shows your name, email address and the IP of the computer that is doing the recording (so be careful). I ended up watching a episode of a HGTV and it did have commercials, so HGTV still got paid for content and were able to inform me of other shows, so that should make them happy, I think, It definitely makes me feel morally better that it includes advertisement. At the very end of the recording, for maybe 3 seconds, it showed a webpage that had videos to be watched, confirming that Playon scrapes websites to get content.
I am not able to get to it, instead I will try to do it Sunday night (For those unsure of my timetable, I am putting this out at 12.01, so its Sunday) I will however try to get a video so that you are familiar with how Playon records before Sunday ends, so check back on this post to see if the video has been added.
