AGHH

Why doesn't VLC videolan work if a cam is active. I've tried clicking on link next to vpid and I've tried entering url direct - DB IP address:31339/0,PMT,VPID,APID,PCRPID.

The only way I can get it to work is by switching default to common interface, then it works great. The strange thing is that audio works fine either with or without cams active.

I'm on the hydra7020_phoenix_109.nfi image with all_in_one7020.tar.gz cams and have tried countless versions of VLC and web browsers.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated ?

If the channel is open on your Dreambox then it should work using VLC.

Open Camino web browser log onto your Dreambox IP address - insert username and password.

Choose a channel that is open (CAM or not) click on the vpid number to download to desktop.

If needed change this .pls file to open in VLC by using the 'get info' option and 'open with'.

Open the .pls file and VLC will stream your video.

That's exactly what I did gameboy. It works no problem with default cam as common interface but as soon as I select a cam it stops.

Tried many FTA and PPV stations. e.g. BBC world on Hotbird 13°E is FTA. With common interface VLC works ok then close VLC and select a cam and BBC world fails to work.

Does hydra7020_phoenix need a plug in for VLC to work for all cams ?

You've got me there! - I'm using a 7000.

Looks like the 7020 image is causing this problem.

I don't have the VLC plug-in on the image (Hydra Phoenix).

Are you using multi boot?

If yes, then you could experiment with other images.

Use a post I sent earlier in the week on how to copy the settings from image to image.

Thanks Gameboy your on the ball again today.

I've not played with multiboot yet - when I find some more hair to pull out I'll have go. I read your article about transfering images - what's FW5 ?

You may find that it's just a question of processing power. The decryption takes a lot out of the old girl.

I think your right. The next time I streamed with a cam selected it worked great, then stopped, then worked, then stopped....

But it always works when the cam is common interface

I need to make sure nothing is running in the background before starting the stream.

cheers

If you have difficulty with vlc for streaming, try mtuxvision. It works well even with encrypted channels. Mgrab is also good but more difficult to install. Regards, pcd.
