Streaming from VLC to Mediaportal IPTV server (1 Viewer)

Good morning,

For some technical reason, I need to stream local video files using VLC (or any other method) and rtp protocol, unicast from local machine.

I have first generated a transport stream file using TSMuxer (taking an mp4 file as input), thus generating a .ts file

I have setup to this purpose VLC to stream a transport file (h264 video, AAC audio, TS container), streaming with the following command line:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe" test.ts :sout=#rtp{dst=127.0.0.1,port=5004,mux=ts,ttl=1} :sout-all :sout-keep --loop

From there, I have created an m3u file which looks like this:
#EXTM3U
#EXTINF:1,Test Channel 1
rtp://@127.0.0.1:5004

I have installed Mediaportal TV server, configured the IPTV source as documented, installed XBMC plugin, installed XBMC 12, enabled PVR backend for mediaportal

Both XBMC and Mediaportal are communicating correctly

However... I can't get any good quality video. I have green artifacts, decompression error, etc.

VLC can play the RTP stream correctly
XBMC can play the RTP stream correctly when entered directly

I have also tested DVBLink, using Mediacenter, and I can get the streams played back correctly by Windows Media Center over DVBLink IPTV tuner.

But the same stream cannot be played back by either MediaPortal client, or XBMC, using Mediaportal IPTV source. In the 'manual control' tab of the server, I can see a lot of discontinuities error

I tried to convert the files using VLC convert (either live of offline conversion) function, selecting h264+Mp3 within an MPG-TS container, same errors. Even MPEG2 is generating errors

So am I missing something in Mediaportal IPTV source configuration ?

Is there any known VLC command line I could use to generate a test stream (preferred offline conversion) that would be known to work with Mediaportal TV server IPTV source ?

Thanks and regards

Vincent Nguyen

    No, they aren't same. I developped mine version, because original version wasn't working at least for me. Try mine and let me know, if you still have problem.

    Splendid, this did the trick. I must admit I was not quite expecting the IPTV tuner included in the latest release (even 1.3 RC) to be broken in that respect, while yours work just fine

    Thanks for the tip
