I'm in Houston..
What I think rtmpgw does is it outputs a stream called beinsport_spa_4 in your example
If you add -v --live --sport 8902 as in the examples I linked you should be able to access the stream in MediaPortal through adding the following to a .m3u file and scanning that:

EXTM3U
#EXTINF:0,Bein Sport
RTMP://localhost:8902

You don't put the rtmpgw link in the actual .m3u but you run it (with the additions I mentioned) before you scan or watch that channel in MP.
The .m3u contains the output of the rtmpgw command which is a locally hosted stream you create..

Ok, so if the m3u file that MediaPortal scans looks like:

EXTM3U
#EXTINF:0,Bein Sport
RTMP://localhost:8902

where or in what file do I put:

rtmpgw -r "rtmp://beinsportgeolivefs.fplive.net:1935/beinsportgeolive-live" -W "http://sportsinfonet.info/player/Player.swf" -p "http://sportsinfonet.info/beinsports.php?n=beinsport_spa_4&vw=650&vh=450" -y "beinsport_spa_4" -v --live --sport 8902

and how do I run it BEFORE I scan it in Media Portal. Thank you.....

Hi... I'm guessing by running it from a command prompt (Start - run - CMD.EXE)
VODServer kinda does this for you from what I remember. Too bad there's no good way to run batch files etc.. in MP1.7 anymore.

Hi all,
I've installed VODserver and with VLC player I'm able to stream http://localhost:9999/play?input=ht...ye.sdp/playlist.m3u8?wowzasessionid=315459662
When the stream starts there is interface at command prompt started version of VODServer.

Anser:
I combined information from 2 earlier posts:
-Using the test-service to make a service for just one channel (that is a quick fix and should be further investigated to be droped), reading the post from JohnnyG from page 2 of this forum entry.
-Most importantly, as I'm using MP V1.3, had to update according to the post of eisblock from page 3 of this forum entry.

Thanks. Now, for the first time after trying a few times in the past, I managed to get an IPTV http based stream working in my client TV interface.

    How can I get this plugin to work? I don't know what to do with it. Can anybody give me detail help please.
    Can I watch every stream with this plugin?

    Note: For now this server is Windows-only (due to the way ffmpeg and rtmpdump are invoked). The server itself is written in Java, so you will need to have a Java 7 JRE installed.

    Just for information.
    I got it running under Linux (centos)

    It would be great if there were some updates for this plugin to be able to support more URLs out of the box.

    Regarding the question about iLive changes livestreamer supports this and it works when I tested this morning so I am able to play the streams in VLC or save to a file but it does not have the transcoding part for using it to create IP channels:

    http://livestreamer.tanuki.se/en/latest/index.html

    http://livestreamer.tanuki.se/en/latest/plugin_matrix.html

    I added support for livestreamer to VODServer by creating a config file for it.

    What you need to do:

    1. Install livestreamer
    2. Download the zip file from this post and extract the 2 files into your VODServer folder
    3. Adjust the livestreamer.bat so it points to you livestreamer.exe
    4. Stream by using the url http://localhost:9999/livestreamer?stream=<stream>&quality=<quality> with <stream> and <quality> being the settings for livestreamer

    I hope it helps someone, for me it works perfectly. :)

    P.S.: The additional .bat-file is needed because of problems with spaces in the path of your livestreamer.exe

    It doesn't seem to be working... it gets my rtsp url from my proxy ok, but I think there may be a problem in the ffmpeg command line that VODServer is using because my rtsp url contains an "&" so the command line should be
    Code:
    ffmpeg -i "rtsp://..."
    and VODServer seems to be using
    Code:
    ffmpeg -i rtsp://...
    .
    This doesnt work for me..

    Somehow !!input!! gets cut at the & in my url.. I've tried escape characters but to no avail..
    My VODSERVER is running on port 9997

    This works in VLC:
    rtsp://192.168.1.65:554/?freq=330&bw=8&msys=dvbc&mtype=256qam&sr=6900&specinv=0&pids=0,16,17,18,20,2600,2601,2611,2701

    But in vodserver I get this when I run http://localhost:9997/play?input=rt...cinv=0&pids=0,16,17,18,20,2600,2601,2611,2701

    Code:
    [rtsp @ 025dbb60] method PLAY failed: 500 Internal Server Error

    Can I add like \ somewhere or replace & with some other character to make it work? It looks like a bug in VOD server but apparently the guy I quoted did get it to work?

    Thanks for this, although I am still having some issues.

    I can get livestreamer to work fine and VOD Server is playing a test file fine but I can't bring them together. Can you give me an example of a stream that you can get to work? Perhaps one from film.on which is what I have been trying.

    OK, this is specifically for people in Belgium (Vlaanderen) who are using Telenet Cable with MediaPortal 2. Next year (Edit: this year, in march 2020) the Telenet provider will stop broadcasting Analog TV and Radio signals on their cable, and make the switch to Digital (DVB-C). The radio signals will disappear completely, so you'll...
