I just tried it with
Code:
% vlc -vvv /dev/dvd --sout udp:192.168.178.26 --ttl 12
DVD starts revolving but no picture on the tv: "Connection refused" on the console of the pc.

Might be able to test this locally on the server. Connection refused could be firewall.

This should work on the server shouldn't it? Test it there maybe?

What server do you mean? It is in the sense of machines just pc - router - tv. Or do you mean vlc running as a server? The firewall is openSUSE's and running on the pc, router has none.

The computer that has the dvd ought to run the commands to view it like any other network connected device would use.

That is what I did: I started vlc on the computer with the dvd (pc). It started revolving the dvd and then produced the errors I showed in post #18. The router has the address table of my local network (WLAN) and the tv is assigned 198.168.178.26. But I don't know on which port the tv is listening...

I am trying to remove the TV from the problem. You should be able to start server. Then go to that same server to view.

Since you have this warning on server then we need to look at it. "It started revolving the dvd and then produced the errors I showed in post #18"

Does this server have a gui where you can start vlc from a gui menu?

I do not understand. What server are you talking about? There are 3 pieces of hardware: pc, router and tv. No server.

The pc contains the dvd-player and runs vlc (is vlc the server in your nomenclature?). The router just runs its software. The tv is switched on, WLAN cannot be selected as input source. I am not aware of any software I could run on the tv.

The pc runs with openSUSE-tubleweed. So plasma / KDE is running too. I can start vlc in these surroundings or from Konsole.

^ is the aim for the pc to serve a video stream to the tv ?

jefro is trying to reduce variables; i.e.- if it doesnt work locally then it wont work over a network.

Yes. The pc hosts the dvd-player, from which the films are read. The pc is connected via ethernet to the router. The router is connected via WLAN with the tv.

No WAN / internet is involved, i.e. the problem is it doesn't work locally.

Locally is my primary goal. Internet may come later (or not at all, dunno yet).

Can I ask why not? You can rip the dvd files, and point a DLNA server to the directory where the video is. Sounds more solid to me then trying to make VLC do this.

^ good point. i would also assume that the dlna-client software/firmware in the tv is unable to browse dvd menus (unless it can read raw vob's but it will still be clumsy if the default track/audio is not the expected).
