Playback of internet material/streams
« on: October 26, 2007, 04:52:26 am »
Something just got to me, I use internet to watch various sports, Baseball from mlb.tv, tennis from atptennis.com, and football from fxtv.no, since I can watch all these in my Firefox browser, I assume that it will work well in LinuxMCE aswell, correct?

But I also use livesport247.com to watch english football, these are streams that I play back in Winamp, I think that they are encoded in h.264, and the file I get from the streamprovider is a m3u-file

Will the internet content work just as good in LMCE as in Windows?

Yes... with one caveate which is currently you will have to use the KDE desktop to launch a KDE app to view these streams. I use vlc (which is also available under windows) to view m3u streamed content.

Thank you, and how is it with audio and video codecs, will I have to download those aswell?
