I created the plugin I wanted and it works as expected in that it finds the media URLs to stream from. They are mp4 files that are accessed via a URL.
My questions is, mainly to chocolateboy, is - can PMS stream them without pmsencoder or managing the transcoding args myself ? I don't mind using pmsencoder
if its going to save me from having to do some work that is already known and tested before.
Any help is appeciated.
