Thanks for your work on this, any additional tips for direct streaming out of home to VLC media player clients. I can see the stream locally on my home network but cannot see it outside of my home network. I set up and enabled the port forwarding in my router for all of the ports discovered on a scan of open ports of the encoder (21,23,80,554,1935,8086,8554) from an outside network. I can ping my router from an outside network when ping response is enabled in the router. I also set the router to reserve the ip address of encoder. The network setting for the Encoder RTSP port is set to 8554. I receive this message for all of the ports identified above:
I am using the HLS protocol and I setup a port forward rule in my router to go from port 6000 (internet side) to port 80 (local lan side) of the encoder.Thanks for your work on this, any additional tips for direct streaming out of home to VLC media player clients.
I have had that same problem on two different android devices. Both started off okay, but most recently, when I launched in split screen mode with the volume down, the Slingplayer app stopped playing at full volume and I can't figure out a way to restore it to the louder maximum volume without reinstalling the app.low volume
If you use the "TS" streaming protocol, it has a 1-2 second responseThanks for your work on this, couple of questions - a lot of folks are bagging on the new v4 Broadlink because it uses cloud servers (really dumb for a simple remote IR blaster), and is that why there a 5-7 sec. delay for button presses? That is very excessive when doing 6-8 skips for commercial breaks. Does the older v3 Broadlink with a 3rd party remote app work better?
I think this would be a great solution if the skips could be 1-2 sec at most.
Forgot to add, another option is using kmttg's Tivo remote control feature via remote desktop to any server you have running on your home network. kmttg also has a web server (with remote control feature) which could be port forwarded but this is completely unsecure AFAIK. No need to buy and mess with IR blasting.
I have been using the commander's solution since late last year when my Slingbox gave up the ghost. It seems to be the simplest and least costly solution of the ones I came across that works fine for what we are trying to do. I use both IOS Ipad's and Windows PC's running VLC as a client viewer. Seperately, I also use an IPhone running the apps both the "Peanut" or IR blaster for the remote control. At times, I have also experienced excessive button delays with either the Peanut and IR blaster, suspect it is just a condition of the internet traffic. I think I even experienced button delay when using a vpn connection directly to my home router.Got another email from Slingbox, looks like time is coming to an end for this device
Commander how is your solution working so far? I need to read it up on it.
