Stream video playlist from VLC to Tvheadend as channel

Added by Tim Elas about 1 year ago

Hi,
I am trying to cast a video playlist from VLC to Tvheadend as a channel, but in tvheadend it cannot open the stream.
Has anyone been able to test this solution with VLC or another program?

Thanks

I have adapted someone else's RSS generator, which I used to turn TVH recordings into an RSS feed, if that will help you?

there are media players which you can point at an RSS feed and they will play them in sequence.

do you want to see the "videos" streamed in order one after another? or do you want to see the "playlist" and pick a video

sorry I'm confused

if you want to watch in order

from the terminal vlc -vvv /disk13/ --sout '#standard{access=http,mux=ts,dst=192.168.1.201:8080}'
path with videos ip of machine with videos
and port number out

then make an iptv mux using that same address and port http://192.168.1.201:8080

you can test is also using vlc on another machine
