Streaming SDP - not supported?

Postby buju » Sun Mar 08, 2009 10:09 pm

videostream.Web,Live TV,MMS,America Free,Action=rtsp://video3.americafree.tv/AFTVAdventureH2641000.sdp

I am unable to stream the above. When I put the above in the web.conf it would not show up, as if it's not supported.
It plays well in VLC, which I am using as both A and V streaming engines.

Thanks.

Same here, I tried url and VLC crashes on my machine. Standalone VLC playbacks .sdp url fine. I even looked at the final destination within the .sdp file, both urls did not work. Known issue VLC standalone is happy but VLC web streaming does not work.

videostream.Web,TVs=America Free (Action),rtsp://63.105.122.39:80/AFTVAdventureH2641000.sdp,http://hendrix.multicasttech.com/images/logo.gif
videostream.Web,TVs=America Free (Actionorig),rtsp://video3.americafree.tv/AFTVAdventureH2641000.sdp,http://hendrix.multicasttech.com/images/logo.gif

btw, how did you manage to find out .sdp urls from the http://www.americafree.tv channel. Website uses Flash player so videofeed url is a bit tricky to find out.

edit: I made few VLC.exe commandline tests. I have VLC 0.9.8a stable, VLC 0.9.9rc and VLC.0.8.6 stable versions. What I did find is VLC0.8.6 version worked best. I transcoded .sdp url to a mpeg file and was able to get audio but video was missing. Another testurl was mms .wmv but both VLC 0.9.x versions crashed. Oldest one received a netstream and saved files to a file.

Code: Select all
rem set source=mms://mediak.yle.fi/media/areena/1/90/48/1904888_1115732.wmv
set source=rtsp://63.105.122.39:80/AFTVAdventureH2641000.sdp

set VLC=C:\apps\vlc-0.8.6\vlc.exe
rem set VLC=C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe

"%VLC%" -I dummy %source% :sout=#transcode{vcodec=mp2v,vb=1024,acodec=mp3,ab=128,channels=2}:duplicate{dst=std{access=file,mux=ts,dst="out.mpeg"}}
pause

So I guess that till the VLC team fixes this there's no luck...
Talking about finding url's foo flash ... boy, am I determined to find that..
Mogulus is another thing that is bugging me.. And it's flash as well, just very well protected.
No trick worked so far...

True, I have few sites wished to have a hidden Flash streaming url but no luck. Quite many flash player uses Adobe proprietary RTMP protocol. I think VLC should support it...yet another story in a web streaming mode :-)

Btw, you should use something like this in web.conf file. Give a proper title and thumbnail values as well. Looks better in XMB menu.

Hi, I am actually using pics/ icons, I jsut did not get to populate all of them yet..
At this time I am just building my library of links.
This is a great program that keeps me so busy...

No perfect, but getting there. It sure needs help from the VLC folks though...
For e.g. TVersity offers a better picture quality when streaming most TV channels.
Just view NRJ in both and see the diff. Big pixelation when using PMS/VLC, not so much when using TVersity.

Cheers.
