vlc-android can't find configuration
  

hi friends, I have got VLC stream and convert version 0.4.28 application for android. I am new to this application, so I am having some problem in configuring the settings. It has got the streaming option but I cannot configure it to stream the videos to the phone. I am sure that the VLC application is running perfectly but I cannot find any instructions on how to configure the streaming settings. If anybody is having an idea regarding this then please help me

Hi, here is some solution on how you can stream videos over 3g. For this you need your Wifi connection to be ON, also when it s not connected. Due to some reason Android has changed the RTSP mechanism, so you can?t use the protocol over 3G. But when you turn o the Wifi on the phone the, it will allow the correct stream to play. You can stream any video file like AVI, DIVX, MKV etc. so in this way you can stream the videos on the Android phone.

You con configure the settings manually, in VLC media if you are not able to get the streaming video. Start VLC media player and switch on the web interface port (port 8080). Check that the port 8080 is open. Start VLC s&c on your android phone And then connect to the VLC server that is running on the computer. Select and browse the media files on the computer with VLC s&c. now select any of the video file and it is done.

If you are unable to stream videos or there is a connection error then first of all check whether you had opened all the correct ports in the router. If you are unable to connect to the VLC server then the ports might have blocked or you forgot to edit the .host file. The .host file only allows local connection, by default. Add external IP to the file and you would be able to make connections. You can also try by starting VLC through lua http interface.

Re: vlc-android can't find configuration

Thank you all for your suggestions. I was very much worried and I feared that Wifi function in my Android phone might not be working. I followed your suggestions and it helped me a lot. Now I am able to stream as many videos as I can, without any connection error. I don?t understand why VLC s&c does not provide any help or instructions regarding the configuration and settings. But thanks to you guys, once again.
