wireshark is good but very complex in its flexibility. You just need a simple sniffer, try the capsa. All in all its trying out to see what's easiest for you to use

so what's the trick to find out their actual stream, as they are using Real Media and windows Media


It seems to me that the best approach would be to ask the web site owners how they want you to fetch the data. If you just reverse engineer some solution that happens to work today, it might stop working if they change something on the web site.

RTMP is a Flash stream, so it won't be possible to play it on the Roku.

so does that means all these sites listed on this page are all using flash since they are using the flash plugin in the browser?

is roku going to support flash in near future?

mms is not a supported protocol. Only http can be used with Roku.
You really should look at the EncodingGuide.pdf file in the Documents folder of the SDK. It describes the supported formats and provides encoding and protocol tips.

Re: How Do I Start Developing a Channel?

the website i posted earlier has http stream but i am not able to locate it.





here is another website with 5 live channels. it has live streams for almost all mobile devices such as ipod, ipad, blackberry etc...

http://www.ndtv.com/page/apps

my question is in this case, how will i find the http stream? do i have to have a ipod to find it?
i spent many hours on Windows pc using sniffer but was unable to locate any kind of stream links.

can someone please post the http streams that these 5 channels are using? i want to create a private channel for these.

Of the apps in the link you posted, the only "live stream" that I see that any of then have is for NDTV news. The others just have updates/videos/ etc. To properly set up a channel that updates dynamically with what's in the mobile app unfortunately it's more involved than just pointing Roku to a stream. If NDK has an xml feed that takes you to compatible videos that's a different story.
