Streaming over UDP/IP

  • 1. How can I load a video from database?
    Hi all, I have my videos stored in a mysql database. How can I play them in an embedded windows media player? I already tried to specify as URL a php page where I send an header Content-Type: x-ms-wmv followed by the actual video retrieved from a blob field in my db, but it does not work (black screen). Do you have suggestions? Mirco Soderi
  • 2. File size decreases after Indexing and adding meta data?
    Hi! I am using the WMSyncReader/IWMWriter - Interfaces to append many small files to one big joined wmv video-only File. After that I use the IWMEncStreamEdit - Interface to mux the joined video file together with an audio file. But then, I recognized that the meta-data like Author, Title, etc. has been lost after the Muxing process, and the file was also not indexed. So I used the IWMEncBasicEdit interface to add indexing and the metadata by a config file. Now I am wondering, why the resulting file size decreases by several KBs after the Basic Edit Process. It should increase instead, isn it? I used "0" as the "put_MarkIn"-Value and "get_duration"-return Value as the "put_MarkOut"-Value to force the BasicEdit-Interface to use th whole file. Thanks a lot! Daniel ZDF, Germany
  • 3. Embeded tone in stream triggering an event.
    Hello, I currenly encode a radio station via Windows Media Encoder. It works well. I now need to go one step further. I need to have Windws Media Encoder listen for a particular tone (around 100Hz), once it hears the tone I need it to launch a pre-recorded MP3 in place of the live stream then go back to the live stream. It is used to broadcast new, more relavant ads over the old ones. I have tried to create a script via SDK but to be honest I am getting myself confused. Is there anyone out there who can give me some guidance or perhaps point me in the direction of a suitable script for this purpose. Many thanks, Hogan
  • 4. How to get a non-relative TimedLevel?
    Hi there, Inside the Render method you get a TimedLevel, but the timeStamp value is relative to the last time the user moved the position slider. How to get a non-relative timeStamp value? Thanks! Alexandre S

Streaming over UDP/IP

I'm new to the video streaming subject so this is a newbie question.
Please help me if you can.

I have an Ethernet Camera JVC C30U that can connect to the directly to
the Internet using Fast Ethernet 10/100 mbps cable and able to stream
MPEG1 or JPEG data over UDP/IP.  UDP is needed in order to support
unreliable connectionless mode.  However, On the receiving side, i
need an application/encoder (Like WIndows Media Player) that receives
this UDP MPEG1 or JPEG data and display it.

The question is does Windows Media Player support UDP and MPEG1/JPEG?
If not is there any encoder that will support this requirements?

Any ideas or suggestions are welcomed?

Thanks in advance!

Saying that you need UDP is not enough. What application
protocol over UDP do you need? For example, WMP supports
MMSU and RTP over UDP to receive ASF data. To receive MPEG-1
data, however, there is no UDP-based receiver that I know
only TCP-based ones (the IE pluggable protocol handlers,
like HTTP, used by the URL reader). To receive JPEG, none at
all (only local file). Maybe some third-party source filters
for DirectShow exist (which would plug into WMP), but I do
not know of any.

1.Encode live UDP stream?

I am trying figure out how to push a UDP stream?

Under the "Output" panel I have tried.

Server Name: 207.181.x.x:1755
* Does not work - error: source can not be found.

Server Name: mms://207.181.x.x:1755
* Does not work - error: source can not be found.

Server Name: 207.181.x.x:80
* works

On the server I made sure Data Source excepts UPD.

Is there something else I should be doing?


2.embedding WMP9 with UDP streams in .NET/WMSDK

3.UDP or RTSP streaming problems

Please help

I'm using VLC as streaming server and by using mms I can recieve stream ok with wmp9. However, when changing to UPD or RTP wmp9 comes back by saying 'server is not responding'

Currently I've been testing this locally, so VLC send stream to and wmp reads it from same ip and port I've defined (554 for RTP, 1755 for UDP). How can I recieve UDP (or RTP)?

So; by entering syntax mms:// to wmp9 'open URL' everything works. No other method works. What is the syntax with UDP (mmsu?) or RTP (RTSP? bit lascking info about this) 

Running win2000, wmp, VLC 0.7.

All help greatly, greatly appriciated!!!


4.C00D11CD when streaming UDP

We have a windows media server 2003 which happily streams TCP but fails to 
negotiate a UDP stream.  The RTP UDP packets are received by the client but 
media player returns error C00D11CD.

5.Switch crashes when watching UDP video streaming

I've got this weird problem in my LAN - I can crash my switch (i've
tried two Linksys and one DLink so far) when I am playing streaming
video with Windows Media Player and UDP protocol - it can take a few
seconds or a few minutes. I can reproduce the problem with a single
laptop or a single PC connected to the Switch. Router is a Alcatel
SpeedTouch. When the Switch crashes it seems to stay in a infinite
loop with the router (Switch-Router connection LED blinking at fast
rate - bouncing packets back and forth ?). Collision LED also blinks
at fast rate and connection is lost either inside the LAN either to
the internet - I have to unplug the Switch from power and plug it
again to restore normal functioning. I never had this problem when
connecting any computer directly to the router. Also, when i get this
problem if i plug the router directly to the PC, normal connection is
re-established so everything seems to be ok with the Router. If I
change to TCP streaming problem does not happen - I know for TCP there
is a client-server connection established so the router knows always
where to send the packets but with UDP which is connectionless
problemas may arise. I don't know why the Switch hangs - buffer
overrun ? CAM entry in the Switch times out ? I would appreciate any
