Re: VLC media player: HTTP Streaming for Apple iPad

In order to get the requirement of yours you should have the following stuffs.
  • FFmpeg
  • Apples? mediastreamsegmenter : it is by default coming with Mac OS version 10.6 and higher.
  • Apache Web Server : you need a web server and its is the best option for the same because it is already available into Mac.
So you should get the above mentioned to stream the video using VLC.

Let me know whether you have managed to get the all the above mentioned thing or not.
Code:
ffmpeg -i video.mp4 -acodec libmp3lame -b 128kb -vcodec libx264 -vpre hq -vb 2500 -s 1280x720 -f mpegts - | mediastreamsegmenter -O -b http://192.168.0.2/stream/temp -f /stream/temp/ -t 10 -s 4 -D
once you have done you need to use the above mentioned command to get the requirement of yours. now use the following command.
Code:
application/x-mpegURL m3u8
video/MP2T ts
finally you need to restart the Apache server so that the changes which you have done can take effect .
Code:
apachectl restart

Re: VLC media player: HTTP Streaming for Apple iPad

if you are using the iPhone then you can do HTTTP streaming with FFMpeg and Open source segmenter.
  • First of all you need to get the latest version of the FFMpeg.
  • Now you should encode the Video for the iPhone of yours.
  • Once you have done with encoding you need download and build the segmenater.
  • Finally you need to build the HTTP server and test the stream which you have build.

You can use the following thing to create the variable rate HTTP stream. Its very simple you need to create the different bitrate encoded streams and simply link to the particular stream definition in to a individual definition file. You can consider the below mentioned example for the same.
Code:
#EXTM3U
#EXT-X-STREAM-INF:PROGRAM-ID=1,BANDWIDTH=96000
http://192.168.132.15/ipv/stream-96k.m3u8
#EXT-X-STREAM-INF:PROGRAM-ID=1,BANDWIDTH=256000
http://192.168.132.15/ipv/stream-256k.m3u8
#EXT-X-STREAM-INF:PROGRAM-ID=1,BANDWIDTH=800000 
http://192.168.132.15/ipv/stream-800k.m3u8
I am hoping that the thing which I have mentioned over here would be useful to you.

Re: VLC media player: HTTP Streaming for Apple iPad

I am suggesting the following thing which would be helpful to meet the requirement of yours. First of all you need to encode the VLC.
Code:
/Applications/VLC.app/Contents/MacOS/VLC --intf=dummy --sout=#transcode{width=320,height=240,fps=25,vcodec=h264,vb=256,venc=x264{aud,profile=baseline,level=30,keyint=30,bframes=0,ref=1,nocabac},acodec=mp4a,ab=56}:duplicate{dst=std{access=file,mux=ts,dst=-}} http://streaming-server-address/
Now you should split the mediatstreamsegementer.
Code:
mediastreamsegmenter -b http://web-server/stream-dir -f /path/to/stream-dir -t 10 -s 4 -D
Now do the following configuration on Apache.
Code:
video/MP2T            ts
application/x-mpegURL m3u8
now you need to create the following file in to same directory and playlist.
Code:
<html>
<head>
<title>iPhone/iPodTouch Streaming</title>
</head>
<body>
<video width="320" height="240">
<source src="./prog_index.m3u8" />
</video>
</body>
</html>
So try the above mentioned thing I am sure that it will definitely help you out.
