How can I setup LinuxMCE to tune into a multicast channel?
« on: January 30, 2008, 08:39:59 pm »
Hi

I'm looking for a way to view a Video stream that is streaming on a multicast IP (like VLC ).  Basically I want to emulate a TV that has multiple sources, some would be IP some could be from a Cable/Satelite stream.

Anyone know if we can do this
thanks
Mike

A new DCE Media wrapper would have to be written to handle this. Possibly the VideoLan Client could be repurposed for something like this, but it would have to be tied in with guide data and other bits... This would require some serious thought and I wouldn't want to just willy nilly slap dash something together that only one person would use....
