Rig to Stream and Play IGMP multicast video
Posted on 2011-03-18
I'm looking to do some development around IGMP video and channel switching. I want to set up a test rig, with an Origin server streaming IGMP multicast video out onto a lan, and a number of clients playing this video via a media player (ideally WMP but could use VLC)
I think i have a couple of options
VLC player -
I've been struggling to get VLC player to stream like this, but i understand it is capable with sout option?
Microsoft Media Room Personal
I understand there is a development version of Media Room for development, but cant find it anywhere to download.
Or another option?
I have a pair of Cisco 3600s, however i don't belive i need to use them as i am only needing to stream onto a small test LAN. Also i understand that i may need to configure each PC for multicast by enabling RMP, i have done, but is this required, or is there another step?
Could anyone point me in the right direction
