Hi,

Is there a plugin on some utility that can be run on a DM500 to compress a video stream?

I have found many solutions that involve a PC converting and streaming a lower bandwidth stream to the internet, but nothing that works directly on the DB - any solutions out there? :confused

Thanks for your reply - indeed I am familiar with the link you supplied, but unfortunately this solution uses applications that run on your PC.

Your PC is actually receiving the high Bandwidth video stream from the DB and the PC is then doing the compression and serving the stream out to the internet/etc...

What I was looking for was a mechanism of getting a lower bandwidth video stream directly from the DB by use of an application/pluggin.

Have I missunderstood something? :confused

Sorry, my mistake, not sure whether there is anything available as a plugin and in fact whether the processing power of the dreambox would be sufficient.

ah, never mind ......

I had almost come to that conclusion after hours on google and various forums.

Good to get it confirmed by someone knowledgeable !

Thanks for saving me more time trying to do the impossible
