UDP Web Streaming

Postby UweO2009 » Fri Mar 06, 2009 3:16 pm

I'm (currently) also using DVBDream to record DVB-C TV on my PC. I now tried to (more or less) directly stream the selected channel via PS3 Media Server to my PS3. For that I use the "LAN Streaming" functionality of DVBDream. When I use VLC on my PC with the appropriate URL: "upd://localhost:1234/" it correctly shows the stream.
So I tried to add an appropriate video stream configuration entry (see "DVBDream Test") in "WEB.conf" that looks like this:

...
#internet tvs
videostream.Web,TVs=TVU Selected Channel,http://localhost:8901/,http://www.tvunetworks.com/favicon.ico
videostream.Web,TVs=DVBDream Test,udp://localhost:1234/,http://www.test.com/test.png

But unfortunately (at least currently) I cannot watch this stream on my PS3. I can successfully select it via the XMB, but it does not start to play and my PS3 shows "corrupted data" after 15 to 30 seconds.
If I use VLC to convert the UDP stream to an HTTP stream it works, with a "WEB.conf" entry like this:

...
videostream.Web,TVs=DVBDream Test 2,http://localhost:8080/,http://www.test.com/test.png
...
But since VLC seems to re-encode the stream, the quality is worse than using the original stream (via UDP).

So my question is: Is it possible to configure PS3 Media Server to correctly stream UDP streams to PS3 ?

I've already a solution for that issue. I just missed the '@' character before the hostname (in that case "localhost").
An entry in "WEB.conf" like this works now:

...
#internet tvs
videostream.Web,TVs=TVU Selected Channel,http://localhost:8901/,http://www.tvunetworks.com/favicon.ico
videostream.Web,TVs=DVBDream Test,udp://@localhost:1234/,http://www.test.com/test.png
...
