I've got a Fedora Core 6 box running the myth backend recording my
and my kids have discovered how they too can use the its easy to figure out web
interface to fill empty hard drives Anime content. and so it goes, it
I've also got a front end (knopmyth installed) next to a TV for
playback and all that. That works too. Hooray!
Now for my dilema. I have another computer in my office running an OS
that is not linux.
It's kind of a dumb OS and can't run a myth front-end, but it can run
VLC (video lan) which
I really like as a media player. Especially on the dumb OS that has a
really bad media player otherwise.
So...., here' s my idea -- I don't think it would be too difficult to
implement, but I thought I'd post here to get so it could shot full of
It would be nice If I could click a link on a web page (like myth
recorded programs) and then have the backend start to stream the mpeg
(can use VLC in streaming mode) to a unicast or perhaps even a
multicast address. Then, the client that did the clicking could start
a local VLC session that would receive the stream as UDP packets. I've
done this by hand and it works great. I'd like to take it to the next
level and see it as part of the web interface.
Am I crazy for thinking this? Anyone?
