Topic: Fling Bookmarklet supports the following sites

  • YouTube: almost everything except Crackle and some other restricted content.

  • Vimeo

  • Crunchyroll: except content that requires a membership.

The fling button is also directly supported in web pages at

Sites may add fling support themselves.  If you find a supported site, please post about it.

Ha ha ha.

It works with youporn.com, but it doesn't seem to work with any other porn sites I tried including pornhub or tube8.

Are you going to add more porn sites?

That is entirely up to the porn sites.  It is possible for any web site to add fling support.

You do not need a mac computer.  The bookmark should not be to flingo.org, but rather should be a "bookmarklet" which is a piece of javascript.  The bookmarklet is on the flingo.org web page and should be dragged to the bookmark bar.  If this is what you are doing then there is a problem with the bookmarklet that needs to be fixed.

Hi,

I am trying to use flingo with Vimeo, and it won't work.  When you click the bookmark (2.3.4), you just get a page with the "bad request" name.

Fixed.  Also added more vimeo tests to our unit tests and monitoring.

Hi,

Just tried the flingo bookmark with a vimeo video and got an "internal server error" 500.  Here is the link:
http://flingo.tv/fling/a?purl=http%3A%2 … ver=2.4ext

Re: Fling Bookmarklet supports the following sites

I must take reponsibility for this.  I broke fling.  It should be fixed now. Please give it a try.

Re: Fling Bookmarklet supports the following sites

Hi, is it already possible to make an entire video website "flingable"? The embed widget produces an encoded script which makes not possible to introduce server side variables.

Thank you

Yes.

The embed widget produces an encoded script which makes not possible to introduce server side variables.

Please expand on this. 

To add a button on every page on your website can be done with a server-side script or template.

For example, we use Pylons with Mako templates.  On the server I have some Python that generates the web page and embeds in the web page a flink link for a particular video.  In my python I set a template context:

 from pylons import tmpl_context as c
 ...
 c.url = "http://foo.com/a.mp4"  # set based on web page URL.
 c.description = "Great video"   # set based on web page URL.
 

In my mako template, I insert the URL.

  Click <a href="http://flingo.tv/fling/a?url=${c.url|u}&description=${c.description|u}"> here </a> to fling.

When a user clicks on this link it will fling http://foo.com/a.mp4 to TVs in his or her network.

Blip.tv is in my flingo widget on my vizio tv, however I cant fling videos from blip to my queue. Why am I able to access blip videos that others have watched but I cant fling them or search Videos I know are on Blip?

We are negotiating with partners to extend fling support.

Re: Fling Bookmarklet supports the following sites

I have flingo on my Tivo now (a new feature) but it doesn't appear to support youtube.  I get an error telling me the domain is not supported when I try to fling a video from there.

Re: Fling Bookmarklet supports the following sites

Alright..  I have launchpad..  last night, my crunchyroll disappeared from launchpad, along with many other streaming apps in the launchpad, there are many other viewers across the net, complaining about it..  I just now saw the flinging video to the tv..  so I dragged the fling icon to Bookmark & selected a vid on crunchyroll, then clicked the icon on toolbar.  However, it is not appearing in launchpad, nor are any of the many other viewing apps that  suddenly disappeared in the last 24 hours.  Where exactly are these vids being "flung" to on our tv's and/or streaming devices?
