Personal Livestream

Heads up!    This post was written 16 years ago.

Two weeks ago XS4ALL introduced ‘Personal Livestream‘, allowing their customers to share their own audio/video stream with an unlimited number of viewers within XS4ALL and a handful on the rest of the Internet. Sounds good?

Unfortunatly their website tells you the service will only work with Windows as the service requires Windows Media Encoder. Sound bad!

Fortunatly it’s easy to prove them wrong using vlc:

vlc input_stream --sout '#transcode{vcodec=DIV3,vb=256,scale=1,acodec=mp3,ab=32,channels=2}:std{access=mmsh,mux=asfh,url=:7007}'

Replace input_stream with your favorite audio/video files or devices, register your stream with XS4ALL and enjoy!
