Can I receive mp4(h264) IPTV streams in Mythtv 0.24
« on: November 12, 2011, 10:31:04 am »

I'm setting up Dianemo NC with mythtv 0.24. I have IPTV streams available that in MPEG2/TS format some time ago. Under 7.10, mythtv was unable to receive UDP streams, so I had to put vlc in between to change format of the streams into rtsp container. That worked, I was able to see iptv channels on mythtv and also on any PC with vlc client.

Recently, my iptv provider switched to MP4 streams (it seems that still in TS container) and mythtv was not working anymore under 7.10. Now I'm on Dianemo S10.10 and mythtv 0.24 and I wonder if there is any better chance to receive those streams also in mythtv...

When I play streams in VLC client and display codecs info it says:
video codec: H264-MPEG-4 AVC  (part 10) (h264)  720x576 50frames/s
audio codec: MPEG Audio layer 1/2/3 mpga  (48kHz, 192 kb/s)

Any chance to receive that streams on mythtv? I've setup Freebox network recorder, added channels, scanned them, but when I try to play them, nothing happens...

Any experience, advice ?

Thanks in advance,
