Re: [Gnump3d-users] Can't stream videos

I haven't  tried streaming videos with gnump3d, but from my own research the only way I could reliably stream live videos from a web page was to create a link to a  .pls (or .m3u) file like this:


Then the browser will download this small .pls file, pass it to vlc or winamp which then plays the stream.  Maybe gnump3d isn't creating a .pls/.m3u file?

btw, I have a batch file that starts vlc on the server that creates the TV.mp4 stream.

  The issue is that streaming videos requires your client to support it.

  90% of the time your browser will merely download fully and then
 launch a media player on the downloaded copy of the file - and not
 stream it.

  It works with .avi + vlc, as you say, that's because the browser and
 client know about these files.  You just need to find the right
 combination of client + media type and it will work.

  GNUMP3d doesn't do anythign special in regard to movies, its no
 different then clicking on a link in an Apache index for example.
