CFULLHDMA: Playing with UDP multicast traffic

An undocumented feature reveal ;-)

Adding UDP multicast streams in the IMedia part of the CFULLHDMA.  Tested from 1.11.04.06/09

  • – open MSIE or Firefox: http://[ip-address]:41952/web/IMedia
  • – Add new Station and enter in the Title: UDP test Stream
  • – In the URL section add the following: udp://239.0.0.1:1234

save this.

For my test I used a simple MPG stream (high bandwidth could be problematic) of 800MB with 1 hour duration.

Download VideoLan (VLC) In my test environent I used 0.8.6c but I know there is a newer version available

create a startup line or batch file with the following command:

start vlc.exe -vvv [path to videofile]¬†–sout “#duplicate{dst=std{access=udp,mux=ts,dst=239.0.0.1:1234}}” –repeat

example:

start vlc.exe -vvv E:\MPEG2\Video1.mpg –sout “#duplicate{dst=std{access=udp,mux=ts,dst=239.0.0.2:1234}}” –repeat

VLC will be started and plays the stream. Now go to your IMEdia part of the CFULLHDMA (Red remote control button) and select UDP test stream .. you stream must start .. where it is at that time ..

Oh .. and if your LED’s of your router / switches are flashing like hell .. hey that seems to be normal with this kind of traffic ;-)

No idea if someone can use it in his/her environment but this is the place to share..
