Streaming Started but not showing anything

Mon Nov 28, 2011 10:24 pm

Hi

I have customized the Simple Player and added the URLS and Streamformats as shown below

urls = ["http://revsam.org/revsamtv.wvx"]
qualities = ["SD"]
streamformat = "ts"

In the Telnet I am able to see a Message as msg 20 Strem Started, but in the TV screen it is showing retrieving and the progress bar shows end but it never showing the video. I have also tried VLC to try to find the Stream format but no use.

Please help.

Give me some valida URLS to check whether I am doing the right thing OR not. Is there any way to use another stream format in Roku.

Thanks
Ambrose

Valid values for streamFormat are called out in section 3.3 of the Component Reference.

A quick HEAD request on your URL tells me it's not compatible. The URL points to an XML file that the Roku doesn't know what to do with.

curl --head "http://revsam.org/revsamtv.wvx"
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Date: Tue, 29 Nov 2011 16:27:10 GMT

ETag: "5e47fb-66-6d2b3d00"
Accept-Ranges: bytes
Content-Length: 102
Connection: close
Content-Type: video/x-ms-wvx


And looking at the actual XML shows it's a Windows Media redirector file that points to an MMS stream which is not compatible.

curl "http://revsam.org/revsamtv.wvx"
<ASX version="3.0">
 <Entry>
 <ref HREF="mms://revsam3.chennaistream.net/revsamtv"/>
 </Entry>
</ASX>

Thanks a lot.

I have some more web TV URLs which I want to try. Can you please explain me how you found out the XML file and actual streaming URLs and Stream format. I just took the view Source from Browser and tried with that.

I want to try another URL http://rainbowtv.tv/media1.wvx This channel was coming in TamilIPTV in roku few days back they have removed this channel. But I want to watch it. How can I check whether their stream format is supported by Roku OR not.

When I checked with VLC Player, both the formats are almost same.


Thanks
Ambrose
