There are also many 3rd party addons & plugins available that will extend the functionality of the Dreambox too. Some plugins
are model specific, while others run all boxes. Plugins such as Jukebox and SHOUTcast playback, also external XMLTV guides, a web browser are available, and a VLC media player interface for on demand streaming media. Games are also abundant like PacMan and Tetris.
In addition, unofficial third-party conditional access software modules (CAMs or emulators) are widely circulated on the
Internet that emulate the CA systems developed by VideoGuard, Irdeto Access, Conax, Nagravision, Viaccess and other proprietary vendors. Many Dreambox owners use these softcams in conjunction with card sharing software to access pay TV services without a subscription card inserted in every connected box. This practice may be illegal in some jurisdictions.
Most popular software cams (client and/or servers):
GBox (with CardServCS cardreader and CS2Gbox CS protocol)
Camd3 (cs357 over tcp, cs378 over udp)
Newcamd (Betad and Cardserver cardreader, Cardspider cs protocol)
Chameleon2 (NewCS P2P protocol)
CamX (with ServerNG cardreader)
Bbox (GBox clone)
DreamCryptCam (official cam Dream Multimedia)
The combination of third-party developers and network connectivity which facilitates card sharing, makes Dreambox use
particularly common among enthusiasts and those who intend to obtain services without payment. Third-party software for this purpose is neither officially endorsed nor supported by Dream Multimedia and voids the official warranty; however, unofficial web sites support a very large community of enthusiasts.
