video streaming support with VLC(?) as the streaming server
Hello Guys,

To start with, I am task to support video streaming on our board with arm9 architecture.

In our current setup, Media player is already working(can play various mp4 videos) on our board with the help of ffmpeg and sdl libraries, mostly based on this tutorial: ( unfortunately the tutorial doesn't cover the network streaming :( ).

What I want to achieve:
Streaming server will run in my linux box and will provide streams over the network using rtp/rtsp protocol. Then, the Media player(which is running in my arm9 board) should be able to receive the streams which was broadcasted by the streaming server.

After googling(?), I decided to use VLC as the streaming server since it uses RTP/RTSP protocol and can stream over the network.

Now guys, any ideas on how this can be done? steps, applications, howto documents, tutorials, tools? or anything needed for this to work?

Any information will be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance :)

Besides being an ARM architecture, you can always look at the man page for VLC and figure out what needs to be done in order to stream, and try it that way.... Try to keep it simple.

I've done it. I am able to stream now.. woot woot!

I use MPlayer instead of VLC as client to run in my target board and VLC as the streaming server. [although it is noticeably slow :( but thats another issue. :)]

Anyway, thank you to corp769 for the reply and to 133 users who viewed this thread :)
