Software :: Which Program To Stream Video?

Apr 21, 2010

I've looked around and found some programs avaialable in linux to stream video. I'm looking to stream to my PS3 but would like to be able to stream to my other computers. I would like the program to transcode too. I'm really looking for opinions on which one to use. I tried PS3 Media Server, it worked fine but it tended to be a resource hog. Also, I had trouble seeing it on other computers.

I'm running Debian Squeeze on an old AMD 3000+ but that will be updated here in the future. This is all internal personal network. Most computers will be on wired lan.Opinions? Ease of configuration, ease of use, stablilty?

General :: Tunneling Video Stream Through SSH?

Feb 28, 2011

There is an udp video stream accessible only on the local network, but I need to access it outside of the network. I have Linux machine (multiple actually) with root access.There is a small utility that makes the stream accessible on the local machine on port 1234.

./ping -h streamserver -p 1234

If I run it I can access the stream using vlc or mplayer.

mplayer udp://@:1234
vlc udp://@:1234

Now, I'm trying to create a port foward from my remote machine and access the port, but it is failing.

ssh me@machine -L 1234:

Software :: Scale And Stream Video Using VLC?

May 3, 2010

I can successfully stream video, but I cant figure out how to scale the size of the video down. This is the command I am using to start the stream.

vlc -vvv input_stream --sout '#standard{access=http,mux=ts,}'

Is there a way that I can specify the height and with of the stream on the command line? From what I read, it looks like a #transcoder option would work, but I cant seem to figure it out. The above command is working, and I can view the stream, but it's extremely slow, and continuously freezes and buffers. My thinking is that if I can reduce the scale of the video.

Fedora :: No Video Stream In A Specific Site?

Nov 7, 2009

I am working in Fedora FC11 with: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; nl; rv: Gecko/20091105 Fedora/3.5.5-1.fc11 Firefox/3.5.5

In the following site I cannot see the video stream:[URL]...Choosing "TW1 Livestream" should gives a video stream, but it gives a black screen. Clicking on that black windows gives a text: Waiting for video.

A German text shows that the actual Version from Windows Media Players should be installed.In the past I could see video there, but after an upgrade it does not work any more.Looking in aboutlugins I see following Windows Media Player plugins:

Windows Media Player Plug-in
Gecko Media Player 0.9.8

QuickTime Plug-in 7.4.5

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Stream Webcam Video To The Net?

Mar 7, 2010

I wonder if anyone here has succeeded in streaming the video of a local webcam to the internet? Some research has turned up webcam_server Project Home Page but unfortunately it only supports v4l, not v4l2 and is no longer maintained. It seems to be possible with VLC server, but I'm a bit reluctant, because their repo is said to break other things. I still have 11.1 here.

Software :: Create Server Program That Will Stream Contents Of File To Any Client

Apr 26, 2011

I need help to do a program that emulates the following shell command line:"sort </etc/passwd | less".Using a socket in a connection-oriented setup.First the contents of the file /etc/password are being fed into the sort program. The sort program is then sorting the contents of the file and sending it to another programm called less. Less is paging the results so that you can see one page of the results at a time.I know that i can solve the problem this way:

1. Create a server program that will stream the contents of a file to any client that connects to it
2. Create a client application that will connect to the server and download the contents of the file. The program should then sort the file. After sorting the file the client should connect to the "less" program and send the sorted results
3. Create a server program that will listen for connections and download whatever is sent to it. It will then display that data one page at a time.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Audio Stuttering In Flash Video Stream

Feb 17, 2011

i've been experiencing an issue with audio playback for certain flash videos that stream from the web. most play smoothly, like the videos at videos. others have this strange background noise that is only present when there is audio (usually on news websites that host their own videos). when there is sound, there is a strange stuttering noise that disappears during the silent pauses.

here's a perfect example:
epidemic of tsa criminality: more agents caught stealing cash from luggage, another arrested for assault. the videos video at the top plays just fine. if you scroll down and watch the other video in the small box, you'll hear the stuttering. i have fedora 14 kde, adobe flash player 64 bit preview release 3 and rpm fusion codecs installed. the problem is also present in fedora 14 with gnome, same setup. the problematic videos play without the stuttering in ubuntu.

Getting the error from the server, Server Error The connection to the streaming server has been disconnected. Any networking gurus out there who may know a way around this.

Software :: Trying To Demux VOB - Subtitles Show Up In Video Stream

Jan 28, 2010

I am trying to demux a set of VOB's from a DVD. I want to be able to extract any video/audio/subtitle/closed caption stream to a raw file. Then I want to wrap the streams that I want into an MKV file. (Probably the video, best quality audio, and all of the subtitles. But who knows, maybe all the streams...) To extract the mpeg2 video from the VOB (which I pulled off the DVD using vobcopy) I am trying to use this command:

$ ffmpeg -i VTS_01_1.VOB -an -sn -vcodec copy -f rawvideo output.mpeg
The problem is, that when I open output.mpeg in something like VLC, the subtitles are still there. I can turn them on/off, but I don't understand why they are there. FYI: if I do -f mpeg2video, I get the same exact output, checked with an md5sum.

Here is a sample output:
$ ffmpeg -i VTS_01_1.VOB -an -sn -vcodec copy -f rawvideo output.mpeg

General :: Setup Media Server To Stream Video Via The Internet?

Nov 27, 2010

setup a media server in Linux which streams video over the internet? Is it easy to do this? I want a server that will actually encode video in real time to allow it to stream over sometimes slow or unreliable networks. Basically, I want a server that works on the internet. I have a directory with a bunch of video files, and want to make this accessible to myself remotely. For other situations, I found great and useful software (such as the PS3 media server). I'd like to find something equally as useful for streaming video over the internet.

But my internet connection supports only a maximum upload bandwidth of 400 kbps.So I thought I will get one more connection and use the combined upload b/w of 800 kbps to stream the video. I hope there should be a way to split the stream across two interface and merge them together at the remote endpoint. All this has to be done at real time.
