OK i now have time to test the Roku. I got the VLC streaming to other VLC clients on my network without any problems.
I unzipped your program, placed it on my CF card and it does not show up on the Roku screen.
any help and suggestions?
The Zip seems to only have one file in it called Udplive and there seems to be no associatoin/extention with it. On my winddows box, it shows it as udplive.file
So I renamed it to udplive.roku and am fixen to try it.
Try the same (change it to a .roku file) and see what you get
EDIT: So it looks like UDP Live needs to run on the host, right Soiaf ?
Use it this way:
1) Start VLC streaming a TS file via UDP to the Roku's IP address
2) Launch UdpLive - either via the UI or command line
3) When you're done watching, press "exit"
4) Stop the VLC stream
The app may not exit properly if you stop VLC first.
If you need to change the port number from the default 1234, you can pass it to UdpLive as a cmdline param. UdpLive.roku is just a shell script which calls ./UdpLive 1234.
You will have problems with glitches in playback unless you update /etc/sysctl.conf with these settings and reboot (or execute sysctl -p):
