[mythtv] Streaming video
Wed, 23 Oct 2002 01:36:57 -0400
I have not yet scoured the mailing list archives for something on this, but
from my prelim. searches on the topic and some previous experience, i don't
think it's been addressed..
1) What are thoughts on getting Myth setup to stream? I'm trying to figure
out what exactly is going on with the .nuv.. i looked around for a free
(GPL?) video streaming thingi on linux a while back, but didn't find
anything suitable for even the most basic tasks.. Would it be at all
suitable here to just share the .nuv file, and then run some sort of media
player that doesn't care about end of file? i.e., it'll keep going past it?
that may pose some problems, but may work.. Other than that, has any
consideration been given to how this would happen?
2) Can I setup Mythtv to play a DVD (by launching another program?), or to
play some of my pre-existing movie/Simpsons episode collection? I've seen a
few curious scripting things that seem like they would make this quite
easy.. If scripting can be used to accomplish this (without caveats), then
that sort of simple answer is all I need, and I'll pursue it further..
3) I love myth, but the documentation seems to be slightly lacking.. Can I
contribute to the documentation effort?
