Myth [Live Streaming/JWPlayer]

Post by jmcgee » Sat Sep 21, 2019 8:22 pm

I cannot play a stream using this. Either locally on network, or remotely via OPENVPN.

I had some isssues geting JWPlayer installed, but I manually installed, and now
http://192.168.1.105:6544/
says JWPlayer installed.

But if I go to
Menu|API|Examples|HTTP Live Streaming
I see

Code: Select all

Play	Stop	Filename	Size	Status	%	Delete
Play - m3u8	 	1131_20151226203000.mpg	960x544	Completed	100%	[X]
Play - m3u8	 	2131_20181117203000.ts	960x544	Completed	100%	[X]
Play - m3u8	 	2131_20181024030000.ts	960x544	Completed	100%	[X]
If I click play, nothing happens. If I click m3u8, VLC opens and dispays
Your input can't be opened:
VLC is unable to open the MRL 'file:///tmp/mozilla_jack0/3780_20180408032900.ts.960x544_800kV_64kA.m3u8'. Check the log for details.

I see nothing in mythbackend logs to point to this.

Am I missing something?

I seem to recall some versions ago, I was able to access mythweb and click a program to get it transcoded to stream.
