MLB.com live streaming video always freezes up

Question: MLB.com live streaming video always freezes up

Hi all.
I've got the mlb.com baseball package. However, the video always ends up freezing or stop and go. Sometimes it will work fine for as long as 2 min. Sometimes if I let it run, it corrects itself. Other times it freezes my pc. This has been going on since I subscribed about 2-3 weeks ago. I've tried every setting as far as display properties, text size, shutting off security center so there would be no background programs running. Including windows update. Still no luck. I've also tried disabling the display adapter, rolled back driver , updated driver. Every time I log in, I get this message after clicking the error icon on the MLB screen:Message: Object doesn't support this property or method
Line: 48
Char: 3
Code: 0

I did change a few #'s after the id= with xes just in case for security reasons. Any suggestions out there on what I can do? No sense extending my sub with the results I'm getting right now.
Thanks and sorry for the long post.

I forgot to mention: I had avira many moons ago. However , I removed it but windows still tells me that avira is one of my programs.
I've been trying for months to correct it, but no luck. CC cleaner didn't work either.

Answer: MLB.com live streaming video always freezes up

since you did't post the hardware specs I am gonna take a shot in the dark here

I looked up the hardware specs on that machine I am gonna assume thats in HD the processor is just not fast enough to decode HD [ if you have the 1.66 ghz model that is ] you need a 2.0 or better to play HD video. try lowering the desktop screen resolution and see if that helps

Answer:[SOLVED] live streaming on firefox lags or freezes

Run the test at speedtest.com to check your Internet speeds. If they are not what you expect them to be (near what you are paying for), then you need to talk to your Internet service provider.

This has been happening on and off ever since I started with Win 10 and its always very annoying .

System just hangs, no error message, no bsod, just complete freeze and loud hum.

I cant say I can remember having issues watching youtube videos, its the streaming of live content such as filmon. Sometimes I can watch filmon for days and not have the issue and then randomly it will start again. Today I was watching hypermole playing on twitch tv (live) and it just happened. Getting tired of it.
I can also report having all my video content display as a green screen after using hyper v although that may be totally unrelated.

As far as I am aware, I'm using the latest drivers for my graphics, I always try update everything. I have attached the log files as requested.

Hi m1a1t,

Welcome to the 10forums

I'm not a specialist when it comes to freeze problems, but I do have a tip (or 2 when talking about reverting back the changes)
IObit software is known for causing problems, I would highly recommend that you remove it and revert back the changes it made when it comes to drivers.
DB3 may install corrupted or the wrong drivers what may cause problems,Malwarefighter is IMHO garbage,Advanced SystemCare may cause more harm than good
About the uninstall program I can't tell you anything, because I have no experience with it and I prefer to keep it that way.

is there a tutorial website or book that i can refer too of if any one can help me how to do it

Answer:Help Live Video Streaming?

Its fairly easy----you need to encode your video to a format like .wmv (Windows), upload it to a server, and voila, thats it. Most basic NLE's will allow you to do this---Remember, you need a server to host your video and that since video files are fairly large, you would want to make sure that you get a good deal on bandwidth usage with your provider.

Im using www.uStream.tv right now to Live Stream my video,
but I want to LIVE Stream Video without www.uStream.tv

the FMS URL is.. I looked at a tutorial it said to write it like this,
HTML:
Enter the following address for 'FMS URL':

rtmp: //Your_Domain_or_IP/live/instance_name

Replace Your_Domain_or_IP with your domain name or
dedicated IP address (if your account has been assigned one).
When entering your domain name, do not enter the 'www.'
portion (e.g. type in mysite.com and not www.mysite.com).

The instance name is arbitrary and is used to reference the
stream.

Example FMS URL: rtmp://mysite.com/live/soccermatch
So mine would be rtmp://voccc.com/live/service
but I dont have a /Live/service direction wtf! please help!

My website is www.voccc.com
Need answer ASAP,

Not sure where this belongs, since it is audio thought here, feel free to move to proper location if there is one...

This has been an issue for me for a long while now and still cant figure out why, I have gone and built another PC with a better sound card but still cannot get any audio.

I have no problems with audio when I am streaming video from a file, but if it is live streaming I get video but no audio, sorry it seems repetitive but just drives me nuts.

I have a hauppauge1600 PCI Tuner card, and I had no problem with the video, nor with the audio when I was in Media Center, and when streaming a video file, I have tried using some streaming programs and havent had any luck, have used: webcamax, unreal, broadcam, adobe flash video encoder, windows media encoder, video lan.... and nothing plays audio

I have also installed codecs, sharks codecs and even bought another tuner card Kworld PCI ATSC Hybrid HDTV Card (PC150-U). Even got a new Creative X-Fi extreme sound card thinking that was going to fix it, but noooooooo....

at wits end at the moment, and about to shelve this again for a few weeks, but this is last resort, can someone point me in right direction or at least help me trouble shoot?

HELP!

Answer:Have video but no Audio, when streaming live

Guess no one wants to mess with this one, and I'll have to shelve it yet once again. I took out the X-Fi sound card, and still have no audio when streaming live, even updated the RealTek Hd audio drivers to latest. so the onboard dont work either on live streaming.

WMP tries to open it but stops after about 10 seconds. Sometime the stream works perfectly though, which perhaps means its not WMPs fault, but theres something wrong with the computer. I've tried searching for a solution, but nothing is working. Any tips?

Hi,
I guess that maybe there would a problem with copyright, I may be wrong?

I would assume live streaming as 2009 would conflict with the rights of the owner.

Hello, I have noticed that sometimes when I am watching live video being streamed from websites on the web that my PC will just shut down.  I know that this can be sometimes caused by overheating, or too many programs running at once but usually when I'm watching streaming video that is all I'm doing.  It may be caused by fullscreen viewing on the websites, but when I play DVD's or watch movies that I'm downloaded in Full screen this doesn't happen.  I don't receive an error message(I know this may be because of a setting that calls for auto restart when errors occur.) the PC will just shut down and then I can hear my HD revving really fast.  My PC to my knowledge has a good power source and it is an intel processor 6x T1100 Phantom II so, it should be able to handle quite a bit I would think.  Any help would be appreciated, I know you guys are the best because you've helped me before.

I'm trying to help my church get live video streaming of the sermons online but I'm not quite sure of the software I need. My church already records all the sermons and makes them available online so they already have the camera setup they need. I want something along the lines of like Shoutcast but for video. I want the source to send data to a higher bandwidth server that can then redistribute it to any viewers. I know uStream is available but we'd prefer to have something of our own setup. The computers in the booth run Windows XP and we have a co-located Linux server running CentOS. Can anyone help out?

I also hope this is the best forum area to post this in.
 

Answer:Live Video Streaming From Church

Well, I would really recommend uStream, but if you're dead set against it, check out VLC player. I'm no expert on it, but I think you could set it up on the WinXP system, then set it up on the CentOS server, and have CentOS re-broadcast the stream to your viewers. (setup the WinXP comp to stream, then tell the server to get it's source video from that stream)

Does anyone know of a simple, straightforward application that can record/save live webstreams in order to watch them again later? The webstreams are basically concerts. I notice that by right clicking, that the webstreams use Adobe flashplayer. But, right clicking doesn't result in any way to save the webstream. (I can sort of see why. The source would need to save it and make it available as a link.)

Or, another option is I can choose a lower video quality by clicking on a link from the source site, and this causes the webstreams to open in windows media player.
So, I'm hoping to be able to save them, and maybe even edit them. But every program I've looked at seems too complicated for my beginner status.
I've downloaded Itunes, but as far as I know it can't record right?
 

Answer:Recording live streaming video

I use Real Player which is free, and has a "Download this Video" link that is fabulous. This link will download any video, movie, music, etc. The only thing that will prevent the downloading, is if the item is protected from downloading by its license (which happens occasionally, but not that often).

Answer:No Video (audio only) When Live Streaming

What exact pages don't work/or what player are they using? YouTube is "streaming" video, so obviously "streaming" video is working.

Most likely, whatever player is used on the page(s) that don't work, needs to be updated or reinstalled.

I have ADSL service from Earthlink. I've had satifactory service with downloading streaming video in the past. The last few weeks, however, every few seconds the video freezes for about 1 second then resumes where it left off. This occurs on all video download sites: youtube, netflix previews, network episode players. This happens on both my computer & my wife's computer.

I dis some troubleshooting. I downloaded and installed the latest Flash Player software. I checked my download speed at: http://www.broadbandreports.com/tools. It was 297kbs. This is the same as in the past. I launched Task Manger while viewing video and noticed that the System Idle Process went to 98% and all other processes went to zero when the video freezes. It appears to be waiting for more video from the internet before resuming. I suspected that my ISP's server was the culprit, but Tech Support assured me that all was normal on their end. I also bypassed my router so that my computer was directly plugged into the modem. Still froze.

Any suggestions on what to do next?

I don't know what kind of hardware there is between Earthlink's server and my modem. My DSL is supplied over Verizon's wires. Perhaps Verizon is messing me up.

I am not sure if this counts as a hardware or software question, but here goes:

We are trying to set up a streaming solution for multiple live cameras in various locations. The locations are bars and they are spread around the US, so we are trying to pursue options that don't require a computer at the source for the media encoding. We have looked at several standalone cameras and some media server units, but nothing seems to be quite what we need. Plus, there are some questions that aren't getting answered through phone calls to the manufacturers etc. I have looked on the Microsoft site, but there doesn't seem to be a media streaming forum that I could find. Search engines are yielding a lot of irrelevant results.

Does anyone here have experience with this sort of thing, or know of a good forum where I could get some info? I need to know if hardware exists that will send windows media encoded streams, or whether a remote server could handle encoding streams from 50 different cameras... stuff along those lines.

Any help is appreciated.

Does anyone have experience with live streaming video servers? What I would like to do is that a live broadcast that originates from Quicktime Broadcaster, pipe it through a video encoder and format agnostic server, and offer it up to clients.

Wowza Media Server (@wowzamedia.com) seems to do that but the $65/month they want for it is a bit steep for the 2-3 hours per month that I need this to work. I do need a version that more than 10 clients can connect to.

Generally speaking paying for a server product isn't the issue if it's a one-off price, the subscription based approach isn't going to work though.

Any suggestions will be highly appreciated, I can host on Windows or LInux, MacOS Server isn't an option.

I have had problems running any type of streaming video for the last 2 months, even UTUBE which uintil last week worked fine. (I can listen to music on AOL Radio, and even play most music videos)....however, I cannot watch Sports replays, movies or Shows, the News..etc.
Computer freezes totally, must do a reboot...video usually runs for about 1 minute. I get no error messages, ect..

I have followed the 5 steps suggested...
I have never had an issue with any type of Trojan or Virus..I clean out the adware ect on a regular basis. I use Zone Alarm, AVG , Spytbot and Adcanced Windows Care V2 Personal (I also have CCleaner, but the WindowsCare seems to do a good job with the Regisrty).
I run these on a fairly regular basis...I also had no new updates to install, as I do those consisntly as well.
The following is the main Log..I have tried to attach the other as suggested..please bear with me on this, as I do not usually do much "posting"

Well this problem has started just about 3 weeks ago. The whole computer will just become non-responsive, mouse and all! The are no symptoms that would lead up to the crash, (if you want to call it that) but i've narrowed it down to when i'm watching streaming video (youtube, dailymotion). That it what's running the majority of the time when the system crashes. It does also happens at random moments when i'm not even at the computer. Sometimes I can be on for hours and sometimes it happens in as little as 5 minutes.

Now I've done some general clean-up but the problem stil exists. I just feel that it started after I installed something but I can't figure out what it was being that I don't remember the exact date! I uninstalled a few programs from around that time but maybe they left behind something in the registry. Now I have experience with editing reg files but that's still one place I will not go unless I know EXACTLY what i'm looking for! Well there's really not much more I can say to describe this problem being that I haven't experienced this one before.

Now I already have the HJT log file ready to go! Any help aside from formatting would be GREATLY apreciated.

Answer:Vista freezes during streaming video

Well it looks like it is not just the streaming video causing the problem anymore. I have had it happen when Pandora is running on safari. Another theory might oddly enough be my phone. I have just purchased the HTC HD2 about 2 weeks ago.

The reason for this theory is becasue I had my phone hooked up via usb and as soon as i recieved a sms, the computer froze! I wanted to try and rule it out as just coincedence so I kept the phone off the computer and it ran problem free for about a day n a half. It froze once again when I had pandora running overnight. So now we can add these in as possibilities!

Hey guys, so when I am streaming youtube or TV shows, my computer will all of a sudden freeze up, the mouse won't move, CTRL+ALT+DEL does nothing. for an instant the sound will become loud and just white noise (about 3 seconds). After this, the computer will sit at that stage, frozen and will never change, the screen won't go black, I need to do a hard reset to restart it. I have recently upgraded to windows 8.1.

My hardware is:
Mobo:ASRock 970 Extreme4
CPU: AMD FX 4100 Quad Core 3.6GHz
GPU: AMD Radeon HD 6900 Series
8Gb RAM

I have tried manually installing the newest driver for graphics card from the website. I have tried reinstalling adobe flash as well.

Has anyone got any ideas? I am out of them. It will usually crash within minutes of streaming, I have been using the computer at this moment for about 40 minutes without streaming and it has not crashed, apart from this, I don't have any other proof that it is crashing due to the streaming, but it is fair enough to assume it is.

Cheers guys

My laptop is a Sony Vaio running Windows 7. When I watch online videos (can be Youtube or any other kind of streaming video) my computer has been freezing very often lately (at least twice a day). When it freezes the computer stops and I can't move the mouse or do anything but the sound from the video persists as a slowed down, very roboty sounding version of the real sound. This will go on for about a minute and then the sound will stop. Eventually the computer will unfreeze itself after between 2-10 minutes of sitting there doing nothing and then the video will resume as if nothing happened (sometimes between 1 and 2 seconds of video have been skipped). Is there any fix to this problem?

Hello everyone,
I'm have a problem that I haven't been able to resolve. This is a new PC build, one month old, that has been having download issues, frequently freezing in the middle of downloads, and also when watching streaming video, it freezes. On file downloads, when it freezes, I can pause the download, then resume, and it will usually resume the download. I may have to do that 5-10 times to get the entire file. I was just watching a streaming video promo on buy.com's website (about 4 minutes long), and at 1 minute and 6 seconds the video freezes every time. I've tried to watch that video with IE, Firefox and Chrome, with the same results - freezing at 1 minute and 6 seconds with all three browsers. My regular web browsing seems to be very fast, no issues there (I have 6 mbps DSL). My network card has the latest driver (but I haven't tried to reinstall it). I have attached my PC info as a text file. Thank you for any suggestions

Hey there everyone, so Ive had this problem for a long time and i have searched and searched the internet and tried different fixes and nothing ever seems to work.

So I have a laptop that I use mainly for streaming and watching tv and movies onto my tv. I recently did a fresh install of windows to try and fix a problem with the video being choppy/freezing/audio lagging and for a few days it seemed to work, but now its bad to being a POS.

So basically this only happens on Netflix and Hulu video streaming. I havent noticed a problem when watching something on youtube or any other site. I have noticed though the task manager that when the video freezes the cpu usage jumps to %100 and then drops back to to %50 to %60 when it goes back to playing normal and this only last about a second, but still annoying none the less. This problem occurs in any brower, ive tried firefox and chrome and the same problem happens in both. I have checked drivers, all up to date. I have changed the processors to both be used. Ive tried a lot of different "fixes" and nothing seems to work.

This laptop, while old should have no problem streaming video and nothing else. There are no other programs running on this laptop while I stream video.

The specs for this laptop are Windows 7 ultimate 32 bit
Toshiba satellite laptop
AMD Turion(tm) X2 Dual-Core Mobile RM-70 2.GHz Processor

WHENEVER I try to stream video from the internet my browser and whole computer freezes and I have to do a hard re-boot. Be it with WMP, Quicktime or realplayer or anything i can never manage to play a video. After this happens it won't let me close the browser or even do Control, Alt, Delete.
This problem started after i'd got my computer back from repair sorting out a virus, it might be related because the malware is still there being annoying it's just supposedly inactive.

With quicktime a tiny snippet of audio can be heard for a few seconds before it freezes and with WMP i think it says "error loading codec" or something.

Oddly, youtube type videos are fine. I know other people have posted in with similar problems but i've had no luck fixing it. Any help would be much appreciated,

Streaming video causes my system to freeze completely. Have to do a hard re-boot to recover. Happens with both IE 8.0 and Firefox 3.6. Problem is worst with youtube videos. I can usually stream video from CSPAN without problem, but YouTube freezes every time.

I have read the previous forum thread on this topic dated Sept. 2008, but I didn't find anything that seemed relevant to my situation. I am running Windows XP SP3. Any suggestions about diagnosis/fix of this problem would be appreciated.

Hi guys,

We cut the cable and are relying on Roku (in the bedroom) and Xbox 360 (in the living room) to watch TV through Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, etc. We had some nasty weather come through this week and my other half (some may say my better half) wanted to just have the weather on the TV while we were hanging out. So, I set off to make that happen.

A local TV station (1011now.com) has a Livestream feature on their site, which requires Adobe FlashPlayer, and I was hoping to use that. However, Xbox 360's version of Internet Explorer does not support FlashPlayer. So, I scoured the web to see what I could find and it seemed that I may be able to stream video from my computer to the Xbox via web browser.

After about 30 hours of frustration and a fresh installation of Windows, I finally have my computer linked to my Xbox 360. I can play videos and music from my computer libraries without any problems. That being said, I still can't for the life of me figure out how to stream the FlashPlayer content to the 360.

I also learned that I don't have Windows Media Center (WMC) on my computer, which is what the 360 wants to use to do that kind of thing. I also learned that WMC isn't available for Windows 8.1. That is, unless I've grossly misunderstood something.

Any ideas on how I could make this happen?

I've had this problem for some time now. Whenever I stream a video from the internet my computer will freeze. It happens in both Firefox and IE, usually a minute or two into streaming the video. The computer becomes almost entirely unresponsive and I have to reboot.
I've tried a number of solutions for this problem. I've installed new codecs, I've looked for updated version of my Flash player, and run a number of different Spyware/Virus removal programs, yet nothing has solved my problem.

I am using a HP 6620 PC, win7 Home Premium 64 bit. I am connected to the router via Ethernet and a wireless network to another PC, a IPAD and a PS3 which feeds my TV.
 
When I stream video from my PC it often freezes/hangs/stutters. I have to pause it for a time and then it will play good for a while and then freeze again. When the IPAD accesses the internet via the wireless connection it works OK. When the internet is accessed by the PS3 thru the wireless it also works OK. This tells me the wireless connections and the PS3 are working OK and the problem must be something in the PC. What is the most likely problem? Can it be a buffer that's not big enough and if so can I increase the size and how do I go about increasing the size. Can the video card not be the correct one for this kind of streaming? The PC isn't that old. Seems like the video should be up to it. With all the video streaming going on these days surely I'm not the only one having this problem. Thanks much for the help.

Hello everybody,

I'm sorry if i make some spelling errors, i am dutch and not that good at english.

I recently upgraded to windows 7 on all 3 of my home computers and i am loving it so far.
There is 1 problem i can't solve myself and it has to do with my home server freezing up whenever another computer in my home network stream a dvd (or sometime even a small divx) movie from it.
Strange thing is, the same setup worked flawlessly when i had vista on all my computers so that rules out that its any hardware issue (maybe a driver issue from nic or something?)

PC1 where i think the problem is :
My main computer with al the media on it im going refer to as server, this pc has Win 7 Ultimate x64 installed on it, intel core2duo E6850 @3,0Ghz, 4 gigs DDR2 memory and an Asus P5K motherboard.
All my media is on a shared drive on this pc and all other pc's can access it through my home network.

PC2 the one i use to watch movies :
My 2nd pc is in the livingroom and hooked up to my flatpannel tv, this pc ill refer to as my mediacenter.This pc has windows 7 ultimate x32 installed. It has an Intel Pentium 4 3.4 CPU, 2 gigs DDR2 memory and an Abit AB9 Quad GT motherboard.

My network settings :
My home network is completely wired (no wireless devices whatsoever) and all connected through a netgear FVG318 Router. There is no password on sharing and every setting in my home network is set to share everything with all others in my network, so all if freely accessible.

This type of network connection problem is a widespread with older NIC drivers and Windows 7.
As soon as the connection is loaded up it quits and needs to be reset.

About all you can do is look for the latest NIC drivers for the media center PC. Hopefully an updated one will come along soon.

If I go to a sight like youtube and watch a video, about half way through all videos it will freeze. Even though you can see the buffering progress bar is maxed out it will still freeze on all videos.

What is the problem with this? I have contacted the ISP several times and they swear they are not packet shaping my account.....and it works great with everything else, just not streaming video.

Answer:[Internet] Streaming video freezes badly!

Given that the buffer progress bar is maxed out I don't think this is a connection issue.

It is more like a flash player/browser problem. Have you tried other browsers? Tried re-installing Flash?

Answer:Satellite A660-07U freezes when Streaming video

Hi

Does this happen only streaming videos from internet or did you notice this also playing some videos stored on the HDD?
Could it be related to the slow internet connection?

If not, then I would check the processes running in the background. Some processes could stress the CPU and this might be the reason for such ?freezing?.

Just one another idea;
Did you check some other graphic drivers? Update the driver and test it again.
I would also recommend using different players.

Good luck

Occasionally, I like to check out videos on Google, YouTube and other streaming video sites. Almost consistently, they tend to "freeze" after a few minutes. They NEVER resume. After rebooting pc, it may play a minute more, but that's it.

I'm running a customized 2400AMD processor set at 1800, 1 GB DDR RAM, 128 Radion Vid, (2x) 7200 HD's with plenty room on a well maintained pc. I have High Speed cable running at over 3 MBits/sec. During the "freeze" times, I can open another search engine and there's no lag on searching nor downloads. At the same time, I can run Adobe PS or any other RAM and processor using program and still no lag. I tested it to see if any other function on my pc slowed down by running several apps at once during the "freeze" and everything was fine. Still, even though I start with NOTHING running outside my basic OS, virus scan and "tuned" Sygate firewall, I can't watch more than a few minutes of Google vid, You Tube or other streaming video without it freezing.

My ie temp file is set to over 1500 MB. I'm actually typing this with a streaming video frozen on another search engine. I can even watch a movie and send emails at the same time w/o lag at the same time streaming vid is frozen. NOTHING else lags. Not even my ie provider can figure this out.

This is frustrating. Any ideas?

Hey, I recently started having a problem with my computer where it will freeze whenever I try and play any type of streaming video, or when playing music through itunes. When it freezes, I can still use the mouse, but clicking (left or right) does nothing, on anything, and pressing ctrl+alt+del does nothing either, so I have to hold down the power button to turn off computer then turn it back on.

Also, when it freezes, any audio playing at the time starts looping, about 1-2 seconds worth of audio just looping.

I have tried running AVG virus scan, came up with no problems, Spybot and Adaware, came up with stuff, fixed it, no change. Used a registry cleaner, fixed it, cleaned it up, no change. Ran Chdsk and it cleaned some stuff up but no change.

I'm getting no error codes, no BSOD, no screen tear or blocks, the video and audio just freeze and I get no keyboard or mouse response so I have to restart the computer. I get no problems just being online or using word processors, seems only problem is when I play video or play games.

I have a HP Pavillon dv6000 with an intergrated webcam, and it comes pre-installed with Cyberlink Youcam software (and in case u ask, yes I do have the latest update of it). Im using Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit and Service Pack 1.

Video calls with people who do not have Windows live messenger 2009 (or any of the beta versions) is perfectly fine and show is sending and viewing each others webcam. With WLM09 users, I can send and view my contacts' webcam just fine like always.

However since I installed the new messenger I cannot video call other contacts with the new messenger. The second I click the Video tab to start a call, my messenger freezes, and the same happens if I accept their call.

I found one way of going around it, under audio and video set up if I do not set the CyberLink Web Camera Filter as the webcam I want to use, i.e. I select the default Simplo Webcam, which is the webcam with no software, it works! The only problem is the video quality is TERRIBLE and dark when I choose Simplo Webcam for some strange reason. I have always used CyberLink in all my previous versions of messenger and it worked fine. All the advanced webcam settings, brightness contrast blah blah blah, are the same so I dont know why the video quality is so poor..

Not sure where I should put this post.
Whenever I try to watch a video online, i.e. a TV episode. The video will freeze every 10 minutes or so. I can hardly get through a whole video, and when I refresh the browser it will start at the beginning again, so I can not get through it.

I also host live video chats with IM. I use a Logitech USB cam. When a customer logs into video with me, the video will freeze almost every minute or so. The text chat will continue, but not the video. I have to keep refreshing the browser, sometimes refreshing will not bring back the video connection and I have to completely log out and in again. The site describes this livestream as "the only easy-to-use "download-free" webcam streaming format that requires no third-party applications to run on your PC.

Is there any easier way to do this? Preferable not using advanced PHP or action script?

Thanks!

Question: streaming live TV

Is there any way to get live tv (ie - local stations, cable stations like Discovery and Comedy Central) on my computer by streaming off the net? I've seen the software that claims 4000+ satellite channels for a one time fee but their channels are from many different countries and they don't show a list of available channels (they probably don't have discovery, comedy central, sci-fi, etc.). I'm looking for something legit (monthly fees ok) and that has plenty of HD content and I do not want to have to use a video input card.

Thanx.

Chances are pretty good the problem is on their end so you should talk to them. If they get enough complaints maybe they'll upgrade their equipment.

The BBC has a selection of programmes here, but I don't think the other channels stream their content yet.

You can watch some international TV stations using Windows Media Player or RealPlayer. List of stations here

Question: Orb Live Streaming

Hey guys,
Its rajkalyan here.
I put Orb on my brother's laptop so that we could watch cricket on the TV through my Wii, but I couldn't. I went to Orb's support site and looked up stream video and found how to do it. It says to go to Video, Online Video and Select an Online video site (Don't know why this is bold )
Anyways, I could not find that menu. I went to Online Video and all I found was Google Video, Guba and Dailymotion. There was no Select an Online video site. So I wish to know, how can I stream live cricket from my brother's laptop to my Wii with Orb?

Thanks!

P.S. I still don't know whats with this BOLDness.. heh

Hi,

I hope someone can help me. My PC is an HP Pavilion A6137c and my OS is Vista and I currently 4 GB of memory. My DSL is with AT&T. My DSL speed is 1.5. When I try to watch live streaming it freezes and stops. Does this mean I need to increase my DSL service? I have a Motorola 2210-02 modem that really feels hot to the touch. I thought this might have something to do with it.

Do I need a new computer?

Any help would be appreciated.
 

Answer:Slow Live Streaming

No modem (nor modem/router) should feel hot. The air vents are clogged, or you are not giving it sufficient space, or it is defective.

When I try to watch live streaming it freezes and stops.Click to expand...

Stops completely? It does not resume streaming after a pause?

I assume by "1.5" you mean 1.5 Mbps download. Is that what you measure with something like Speedtest.net?

i watch live sports and movie streams on my computer and its been working like a charm until the last week or 2. the stream will be freezing and skipping 3 seconds ahead or just freeze after about 5 seconds. at first i thought it was the stream itself but i would read comments from others watching the streams complimenting the server on its performance. then i checked my computer and there are no viruses or malware on it and my updates are current. any clues on what i should do? its football playoffs time and i would like to nip this in the bud a.s.a.p.

I work in a Senior Living community. One of the most difficult issues we deal with is trying to set something up to work, like streaming a live feed from a church, while there is no one tech savvy on site. My current setup is having a laptop plugged into a TV and someone manually clicking on an icon to bring up the service, maximize the screen, etc. at a specific time. Is there anything I can run to schedule this to make this happen automatically? So that the only thing that needs to be done is the TV turned on? I would appreciate any help out there.

Basically i am looking at getting a new laptop to stream live sports in hd and wondering what specs I should be looking for. On my old laptop there is a little bit of lagging which is definitely caused by the laptop and not the streams as it works perfectly on my desktop. i was wondering would i be better getting something with more ram or a better processor? which is more important in this instance. thanks in advance
 

Answer:Specs for Live Streaming

Pretty much anything you buy new today can stream HD video as long as it's not one of those super cheap AMD single core laptops. Pretty much anything with a decent dual core processor and at least 4GB of RAM will work. If you want good overall performance than look at an Intel i3 or i5 processor base laptop and more than 4GB of RAM.

Hey everyone!

Here is what i'm trying to do: Find a wireless streaming solution, so i can share my wildlife cam with my friends and family.

I have uniden UDR744 security system, with 2 wireless cameras, and the only way i can view my cameras is if i use the monitor that came with the system, or downloading an app on my phone. I cannot view it on my computer or stream it to any sites (or cannot figure out how).

Is there a way to stream with these cameras? If not, is there a wireless webcam that's affordable and would allow me to stream without having a computer plugged in (as the camera is in my yard, that would not be ideal)

Thanks in advance. I can provide any relevant information needed

-Justin
 

Answer:Webcam And Live Streaming Help

According to the manual for your security system, it seems there is no direct way to stream this to a Windows based device.

There are 3rd party applications but I find it discouraging of the more than 2000 supported cameras with this application, not one Uniden is listed.

Frankly, I thought this would have a simple solution but it does not appear so. I will say it is probably a more secure system this way because then hackers cannot easily hack in and see if you are home, or if your kids, for example, are home alone.

I did find this, Uniden Guardian but it does not look like it has been updated in a awhile.

Exploring possibilities on streaming audio from website, any hints from the pros?
Is Icecast the cheaper answer for streaming mp3's. Any freeware that ya'll may have used in the past that may ease the burden?
 

Answer:Live streaming audio.

Here's an idea for you smart guys. Live streaming audio is very expensive due to bandwidth. Here's a possible solution to the bandwidth problem.

1. Server gets request for audio stream, downloads small client that acts as a peer2peer server for concurrent downloads to the PC requesting the audio. If the server cannot meet bandwidth requirements of user, user's client seeks other client's peer2peer servers to grab any missing packets that the original server cannot provide fast enough.
Each client download can include a encoded list of IP's from concurrent users to use as additional sources for the stream.

Any idea's, comments? Media must be cached in order for this to work, a small ramdisk can be set up by client application in order to cache and prefetch.
Of course, user has to be notified somehow that his use of the streaming client is contingent on some use of his upload speed, and client server should uninstall automatically on disconnect.

Hi! i have a online tv subscription, running through vlc. Occasionally its keeps rebuffering, so can i somehow test whether its server or client problem?
 

Answer:Live streaming rebuffering

May be your internet speed is not fast enough to make constant buffering unnecessary. That's the usual cause, not their server or your software. Be aware that internet speed varies throughout the day, with evenings being the worst time for heavy network traffic which can affect download and streaming speeds.

Answer:Streaming Live TV across network?

This probably belongs, technicaly, in the Software forum.

But, I think what you're looking for is 'Media Server' software. There are all sorts, each with different capabilities so you will want to do some research which is best for you. Of course, the prices vary greatly according to functionality.

They also have stand-alone hardware which handles the Server and Storage functions.

Hello tenforums members,
I upgraded my Lenovo U310 laptop from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 a week ago. Everything seems to have upgraded successfully. The only problem that I can find is that none of the video streaming from Windows 10 apps can be played. I get an error 'Unsupported video type or invalid file path' when I click on a video article in USA Today or when I try to stream video from any other apps, NBC News, MSN Money, etc... from Windows 10 store.

I have no issue streaming videos from any of the browser though. What could be missing that could cause video streaming to fail? I would appreciate any suggestions or comments. Thanks.

I recently installed Windows Service Pack 2, actually three times after reinstating my computer software to the original state by erasing and reinstalling the full software install CD on my computer's hard drive for Window XP Home. I have no problems playing games with my new FX 5200 Ultra video card by BFG, but I am at random times getting the annoying green screen that blanks out my videos I am streaming or playing(happens when I am streaming more often). Then after that happens usually, the computer reboots or shuts off. I never had this happen before. My computer's memory tests ok so why can I play games with this never happening but when I am streaming or watching video through Windows Media Player, etc do I get the "green screen blankout" and then often the shutdown of my computer? I have 512 MB of system memory and 128 MB of video memory! I use System Mechanic and it shows I have at least half of my memory even during playback so what is the problem here? I can attach my system computer file of my information if you like in an e-mail if it will help. AND YES I HAVE THE DIVX CODECS. I thought about that to and uninstalled and reinstalled them with the same random problems. PLEASE HELP ME. This is really annoying.

Its also got an advanced media player which can play any video u open it with like wmv, dat, mpg, rm, mov, avi, divx..... of course, the codecs for these formats r included in the pack.

Hi, I've just about had it. I am running a Dell Dimension 2400 with Windows XP SP3. I experienced no major issues until August of 2010. I first became aware of the little game my PC was playing after installing the Shockwave Flash 10 update. Initially, the problem presented as a white screen when attempting to watch Hulu in full screen. A short time after, I began experiencing audio drops while both streaming music via Pandora or while engaged in conversation via the VOIP (non video) side of Skype. I don't recall how, but the full screen/white screen issue disappeared. The problems remaining however have proved more frustrating.

Present day, I still experience the audio problems. For example while talking on Skype to either a landline or cell phone user, I will often (but not always) hear a little pop and the audio will go out. The lone remedy I have found is to close the skype window and fully 'Quit' the program. Upon which, I will promptly hear another pop, signifying that audio functionality has resumed.

While streaming video, whether from Hulu, Netflix (especially) or an embedded YouTube on Facebook, video will play for a few moments or minutes and then will cease, freezing the frame currently showing. For the sites utilizing Flash, the remedy has been 'Disabling' then re-enabling the Shockwave Flash Add-On in Firefox. In effort to determine whether this was a Firefox issue, I installed Google Chrome and then Internet Explorer this w... Read more
