Question: Problem related to live video streaming

There is a website(newtvworld) which allows to watch live tv channels over internet. But I have a problem that i can just stream few of them. The error which i receive is "Cannot load m3u8: Cross domain access denied". Someone suggested me to enable the "access data source across domains" in Miscellaneous option of security tab of Internet explorer. After doing that now I am receiving another error which mentions "405 method is not allowed" while having streaming. So what is the proper solution or by
which way i can do my work?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hey,

I'm trying to watch an online stream on http://www.theyoungturks.com/ (the one on the homepage). However, I always get a problem where it just doesn't load. 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?

I'm using XP media centre.

Hello, i purchased a cheap IPcam however it doesn't do what i wanted, so i need to buy another one. It'll probably be little expensive so i need your help not to mistake!

I want to be able to do live streaming on a website such as explore.org and that should be free (appart the IPcam itself). It may be helpful if the cam can rotate up/down.

It should have night vision. The picture quality should be real good, not like mine which says 720P but VGA shots aren't even nice.. It'll be used INSIDE, not need waterproof.

Actually the biggest help i need is about setting the thing to get the live stream.. I looked around but i couldn't reall get it. Helping me to find the right cam is bonus Thanks.

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.

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!

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.

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).

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.

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

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.

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'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)

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.

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 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.

Well, it seems u dont have a hardware problem. this problem occurs only when u r watching videos. so i guess its the media player. take my suggestion, stop using it. Download this pack: KLite Codec Pack. I think the latest version is 3.2. Its got all the codecs u need to play compressed videos, and dvds. 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.

The camera taht we are using is a SONY DCR-TRV280. We downloaded new driver package for it and still nothing works. Can someone please help us ?

Thank you in advance .

I just set up a brand new computer that is having problems across all browsers streaming video from sites like YouTube or Facebook. The video appears to be in slow motion/stuttering.

The PC is a Dell Precision 3620, intel (quad core 3.2 GHz, 3.6 Ghz Turbo, 6MB, w/ HD Graphics 530); 16 GB RAM; integrated graphics card. Windows 7 Professional.

Here is what I've already tried:

*I disabled Hardware Graphic Accelerator on all browsers.
*I made sure Adobe flash is up to date.
*I cleared internet history.
*I made sure windows is totally up to date.
*A different computer at the same location (network drop) did not have trouble streaming videos. Other computers on the same network are not having trouble streaming video.
*I checked memory usage and performance when the videos are stuttering and nothing appears to be taking up an exorbitant amount of resources.
* I checked to see if there was an update for the graphics driver (there wasn't)

I rebooted the computer and for a little while, videos streamed ok, but after a few hours, the user reported that videos were once again stuttering/ appear to be playing in slow motion.

I'm having a problem playing any kind of imbedded streaming video. I first tried to watch a streaming broadcast, and the site told me I needed to download Media Player, which I already had. However, I thought I might need an update, so I downloaded the newest version (9) and it still didn't help. As you know, this version cannot be uninstalled, so now I'm stuck with it. I think there may be a conflict between Media Player and Real Player, but I'm not sure. Can anyone please help with this???

Answer:Problem Streaming Video

Your system is outdated. You only have 512MB RAM & you're using weak integrated graphics. Since it can't accept any more RAM, you should install a *real* video card (standard PCI), or at least go into the BIOS & try increasing the video memory amount to 11MB.http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsuppor...And I'm curious why you list your CPU as 996MHz in two areas but 733MHz in another?

Video: Intel on-board

I've got a PC having video problems streaming but only with these sites that stream live football games and sports events. It runs fine with youtube etc. No problems with movies or anything like that. All the basic stuff checked like updated video drivers, disk space, flash etc. Also tried disabling hardware accelerator. The sound works fine but the video runs in slow motion. My thinking is the on-board card or lack of memory but the fact it runs other site such as youtube I'm doubting this. BB speed is excellent so this is not the problem. Any ideas?

Answer:Video streaming problem.

Look to the web pages FAQ's and see what the minimum requirements are. You may need a video card with separate video memory to play this site. Also when streaming, stop the video from automatically starting, and let it buffer for a few minutes (there may be a grey progress bar ahead of the actual playing progress bar)
Be sure to update Java and Shockwave.

I've been having the same problem for a while now. When I try to watch a video online, I can only load a small portion of it at a time. The progress bar will only move part of the way (usually only a minute or two out of a 30 minute video) and then completely stop. I've tried waiting for several hours to see if it's just slow, but it just stops.

It's not a matter of a slow connection--mine is very fast.
This happens both in IE and Firefox. I have cleared my cache and reinstalled Flash Player, but that didn't help either.

Maybe a browser issue? I have a client with a different vendor's DVR, but we can only view the video in Internet Explorer. It installs an ActiveX component, which then makes everything work. Firefox, Safari, Opera - none of them work.

When tring to stream a video, any video, any web site, though to the windows media player, it doesnt connect. It tries at first then just returns to the ready option. Refreashing the page does nothing but agravate me further. So here is where I started.

First I checked my nic, ping 127.0.0.1 -t, tried the video with that running and I got complete replies to my nic, the video never came up.

Then I thought, maybe my router is going bad, I removed the router and went from extenal modem strait to pc (rebooting of course). Tried the video again, nothing.

Thats all the hardware I can test, thus I moved on to software tests. I checked windows media player. I uninstalled it, and reinstalled WMP10. Once again, nothing.

Here is a stumper and maybe a root cause, while downloading the WMP10, I noticed I was only downloading at 40k/sec. Slow for even dial up, however I'm on DSL.

I have a Dell SC600 tower computer, several years old. It has a P4 with 2.66 GB speed. I have 2 GB ram, 7200 rpm hard drives and an Internet Connection that varies between 2 and 5 MB. I'm guaranteed 2 MB...but most of the time if I check it, it's a lot faster.

This particular problem has started since I installed Windows 7...I never had it in XP. When I installed Windows 7, I didn't have the problem, it seem to have started recently. It could have started when I replaced RC with the Release version.

When I try to play a Video...regardless of the source, it plays for a few seconds, then stops, then plays for a few seconds, then stops, and never just plays. The Video buffer never fills up...it just stays at the current location. \

I don't mind waiting till the buffer reaches 100% and then start playing the video...but no matter how long I wait, the buffer indicator doesn't move.

I am having issues with streaming video from my PC to my TV by means of an HDMI cord. It used to be very simple: I would plug in the HDMI cord to both the PC and TV, change the settings on the T.V. to "HDMI", and on the PC press the "windows key + P" to change the settings to "duplicate" or "extend". I tried clearing everything up with my Norton services, but I can't find any issues.
Now the streaming won't work and I am not sure why. If I create another account on the computer it sometimes works but after enough times of streaming video, that stops working as well. The last time I tried the visual part worked, however I couldn't transfer the sound to the T.V. even when I tried adjusting all the settings. Anyone have any ideas?

I consider myself to be quite good with networking, but I have stumbled across a problem which is starting to bother me. Basically what is happening is when I play any kind of video stream from any given site on the net, my internet connection drops and the only way to revive it is a power cycle of the router. I haven't had this problem until recently (past few months) and I have owned this current router (Linksys Wireless B router) for 3-4 years. I've gone over all of my router settings and everything is set properly. I thought to myself perhaps my router was blocking that video stream via a port block on my router. But this can't be since I even tried opening every well known port on my router (0-50k) for a few minutes to see if that would work but to no avail. Therefore I believe it could an actual router hardware issue. The conclusion I've come to is that I think the router's buffer is recieving the video stream packets in the router's buffer but cannot handle the flow and is discarding them, which in the process locks up my router and thus requiring a power cycle. I think it may be time to buy a new router! What do you guys think?
 

Answer:Odd video streaming problem...

Put a hub on the outside of the router and sniff the traffic. You might see something in there.

Answer:Streaming/Video problem

Google for "Broadband Speedtest" and see if your data throughput is what you paid for. If it is OK in the test, it could be that the slow down is at the other end.Major sporting events may have peak viewing audiences too big for the service provider, though you would think that since Setanta's business is based on this, they would have adequate bandwidth.

Hello,

I recently did an upgrade on my laptop, just so I can have a clean version of Windows 7 ad start from scratch as the system was feeling a bit clunky. I m planning on doing a clean install and formatting soon (maybe tomorrow), but for now I currently have a problem.

So before the upgrade, I had no problem playing YouTube videos, or any other videos on streaming sites using both Mozilla and Chrome. I could watch videos on wither piece of software at 720p without any problems with lag and stuttering. After this upgrade, nothing seems to work. When I try to watch YouTube videos, even on 360p I will get major slowdown on the video itself and when using the laptop. Thos only occurs when the videos is playing, and when stopped it goes away. I have looked at task manager to see the CPU usage and when playing videos the usage of it is in the high 80s and lower 90s percentages.

The current actions I have taken are these:
I have disabled hardware acceleration in both Adobe Flash Player and Mozilla.
Removed enhancements on audio in case it was audiodg tampering with it (had this problem before)
I have disabled all of the add-ons I have present in the browser, including Adobe Flash Player
When I did this, the Mozilla's own container was still giving me high CPU usage
I have tried booting with just Microsoft applications and drivers running and still get the high usage

everytime i click a link to a video it doesn't load, and it will stay 1 or 0% all the time. clicking play does nothing. it's just stuck at 0 or 1%, play state is always stuck at "ready". whatever browser i use the result is still the same.

from what i know, nba & yahoo (like featured videos, news) either use Quicktime or Windows Media Player to load & play videos. my prob is it suddenly stopped playing videos for no reason. my media player is upto date, quicktime, realplayer & other codecs are upto date. just wondering why i can't view a video from those sites? does anybody know a solution? anything i need to do?

I have had a problem for some time now with WMP9 and streaming video. the problem is with all formats EXCEPT .asf and .wmv. those two work fine, all others crash WMP9 with an "unknown error". After this had happened a few times I decided to send an error report on it to see if it might find a fix. It came up witth an article that said I needed to update my copy of MPEG Encoder. I do not have that application(yes it was refering to an application, had a link for me to dl it)
I did at one time attempt to install Adobe Premiere but it did not install correctly and I uninstalled it. it included a version of MPEG Encoder in it, so gave that app a shot, it did not fix the problem.

I can play all media formats if they are on my machine. I can also stream these files using Quicktime or RealOne(but I don't like those apps)
The problem also seems to occur in K++(Kazaa) If I try to preview any video types other than wmv or asf, I get the same error as when streaming.

As I said, this has been going on for a while now, I've looked around, asked around and searched old threads here. I can come up with nothing and no one seems to want to help me other than suggesting a format. I do not subscribe to the theory that a format is a fix for anything, so that is not an option. I need to fix this, it has gone from being a slight annoyance, to being a huge headache.
 

Answer:Streaming video problem

Adobe Premiere is known not to uninstall the codecs it has installed and I personally have had problems with this. IIRC all i had to do was to delete the offending files from windows system folder.. I'm sure you can find the exact instructions how to do this if you search the web (that's how i got them).

Hi there :)


I'm running into an odd problem. It started a couple days ago for reasons unknown. If I try to play an embedded video, such as this, the video will begin to play in media player as normal, but a download progress window will also open. This didn't use to happen, but here's the really weird part- if I cancel the download progress window, everything is fine; if I let it go the video will either restart, or stop playing all together along with an error message stating that the file cannot be found.

I tried clearing my TIFs, relocating my TIF folder, checked and rechecked every setting I can see, and everything looks fine. It's kind of baffling =[

It doesn't seem to be a universal problem, but in the cases I found, we all have the same symptom: After installing SP2, streaming video with WMP10 no longer works (it just stalls out while trying to connect). If given the option to choose RealPlayer, streaming video will work. So, it appears it's a conflict between WMP10 and SP2. I tried rolling back to WMP9, as it worked for some, but it did not work for me.

All the options on the working laptop fore IE and WMP seem to be the same, no apparent differences.

I've received two responses from MS and followed their suggestions but it didn't solve the problem.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

This is a Windows 7 machine, Pentium 4, 2.667 GHz. I have 2 GB Ram. I got hooked on You-Tube and the old Star Trek series
http://www.youtube.com/show?p=Zk2dX5DnW_c&s=1

It worked great for a couple of episodes, then suddenly it would only play for a couple seconds, then a few seconds of loading, then play a few seconds, etc.

It's doing it in nearly every video application.

I have a 5 mb internet connection. When I had the 1 mb connection it worked fine.

I've tried running in full performance mode with none of the Win 7 graphics enhancements, that doesn't help. I'm not sure what else to change.

Long story short: Whenever I try to view streaming WMV video in my Windows Media Player 10, all I get is the audio. The picture is just black. All local files work though, and my roommate (on college network) CAN view the files that I cannot, so I don't think it's a network thing.

Two videos I cannot see:

Hi, i got this new computer about 3 weeks ago. When i watch streaming (twitch.tv mostly), sometimes it will freeze my browser for 5sec-10sec (but the sound is still going) and come back after. When i try to watch it in 720p or HD, it will lag but only the video 1/2 of the time, while the sounds is just fine.

I updated all my drivers and reinstalled my firefox/chrome.

Over 720p will work for 15mins then starts lagging like crazy. A

Also, when i open anything (i think with ''Flash'') my browser will freeze for 5sec. The chat from twitch.tv beside the video will take for ever to load and make my browser lag.

Thank you.

Hello. I've got a Lenovo G585 that's about 4 months old. I've already had a few problems with it but they just seem to fix themselves.. But for about a month now, I go on youtube and try to stream a video, and my internet cuts off immediately! Literally. I can't go on any website after this, all I can do to fix this is turning my computer on and back on. I tried logging out but that doesn't change anything. It's very annoying because everytime this happens I have to drop everything I was doing to restart my computer. You could tell me "Just don't go on youtube" Buut I love youtube and I use it quite a lot. Please help! Thank you

Answer:G585 Video Streaming Problem

hi itszoegee,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
What you're encountering is really weird as your internet connection just cuts off when you go to youtube. Perhaps you have a security software that automatically locks down your internet connection when you access certain websites? It'll also be helpful to know if your IP address gets change, the security software that you use, or the internet goes from Internet Access to Limited Connectivity during the incident.
 
Also, try to boot in Safe Mode with Networking and see if the problem persists (this will isolate the issue of a third party software that might be causing the issue)
 
 
Let me know your findings,

I am currently working on a modeling web site and I want to offer a

online portfolio where models can post their photos, audio and video

files, thus making it a multimedia based portfolio.

Here is the list of the files I plan to allow the models to upload in

their portfolio
Photos - .gif, .jpg, .bmp
Audio - .mpeg, wma, mp3, ram and wav
Video - .avi, .mpeg, .mpg, .ram, and .mov

I am trying to find a way for users of this site to view the audio/video

files without having any file format specific plug-in or player installed

on their desktops. So far I have concluded that it would be best if

somehow I can manage to stream down the audio and video files on the

client’s desktop in Flash format since this would require the clients to

have only a Flash player which is a very common plug-in now a days.

I am seeking a way to convert the various files that models upload i.e

mpeg, wma, mp3, ram, wav, avi, .mpeg, .mpg, .rm, and .mov to a common swf

Flash format.

Is anyone aware of such a tool or piece of application that would

automatically convert all uploaded files to Flash format. Also if there

is a Flash component that would allow real-time streaming of the flash

files in the client’s browser without saving the swf files in the

Internet Cache or Temporary Internet Files folder.

Any help, advice or pointers on this matter would be highly appreciated.

If anyone has developed such a feature in the past... Read more

I am unable to view streaming media [ live & on demand ] from a particular site, on some of the PCs on my small LAN. The site requires Adobe Flash 10, which has been installed; more accurately upgraded from AFP 9. I allowed the browser to notify me of the required update and obtain the update automatically, instead of uninstalling AFT 9.

On my Vista Ultimate SP1, I am unsuccessful.

No improvement by running IE 7 without add ons, because it needs the Adobe Flash Player add on.

I have watched many streaming vids from youtube or movie dvds. at the bottom of each screen is a sliding thing that enables me to advance or rewind to a certain point.

i just subscribed to a streaming video site and their sliding thing will slide all the way to the "end" or right and then i cannot move it at all to either advance or rewind. the movie continues to play but i have to sit through a lot of junk most of the time.

i have emailed my problem to the site and they just asked me for my RAM size and computer speed. i gave them that info but am a bit skeptical simply because their vids are the only ones that have this problem.

first, is there a name for that sliding thing? second, any clues on what i might do to bypass this problem?

thanks.

I am running an "out of box" new Medion M3 Director 4500 system with XP SP2 Media Center Edition. If I receive mpegs or wmv files via email and try to play them using WMP or Real Player I get sound but not video. When clicking on video clips at the CNN website, same results. If I make the wmv file available to Media Center the clip plays fine. This of course is not too convenient and not possible with the CNN clips. I have loaded the FFDShow-MPEG 4 file. I have uninstalled and re-installed wmp 10. Same results. Why I think this may be XP related is that real player produces the same results.

Thanks in advance for any assistance anyone may have.

I recently purchased a DVD+-RW drive and installed it in my homebuilt computer. Everything was working fine before shutting off for the install.

I installed it on my one remaining IDE spot on IDE #2. I made sure the jumper on the DVD/CDRW combo drive was master and the new DVD burner was set to slave. Everything was hooked up correctly.

I turned on the computer, and it hung in the boot process right after it detected the processor (AMD 2400+). I turned it off and back on, and didn't have video this time. But it booted up the whole way because I heard the Windows sounder go. I had it boot down (WINDOW->U->U), then rebooted. Same thing.

I booted back down and took the computer out, checking all of the cabling, trying to figure things out. Everything checked out ok, so I booted back up and it hung after the processor detection, before it hits the IDE detection.

I thought it was a video card problem because it booted fully the two times it didn't get any video output. I switched in a lower-end card and it booted up fine, so I thought it was the video card. I decided to boot back up using the other, higher-end card one more time. This time it worked, it booted fully with video output. For further testing, I booted down and left it off for awhile, then booted back up again. It hung after processor detection.

In there somewhere, I don't remember where, I did disconnect IDE and power to the DVD burner, but it had no effect. I thought maybe the video card was... Read more

I've got a problem where sometimes when I switch resolutions my monitor flickers, makes clicky noises then loses signal. Them im forced to hard reboot the computer. I was wondering if this is probably a monitor or a computer issue. Personally I think its monitor related because my monitor is a 1994 piece or crap dell thats been making flicker noises whenever it changes res, and always has lots of image tearing in FPS games. Is there a way I can tell though? I tried pressing the power button after the display went but it didnt do the reboot because it was in a program (The power button reboot doesnt work in programs right?). Anyone have any suggestions, if its monitor related then ill be glad as im getting ready to trash this thing in a few weeks.

sounds like a vid card or monitor.... i say the vid card because i dont see why the monitor res. changes would cause comp failure.

Okay HardForum, I need your help troubleshooting the bottleneck in my network.

The Basic problem is this; I am getting choppy video streaming from server to my wireless
laptop in the next room. Media player Classic is pretty bad, VCL player clears it up a
little, but still pauses to buffer a couple of times for a 350 MB file that is less than an hour in length.

Can I fix this w/o using a wired connection?
What are the limitations of Wireless G networks?
What/where is the bottleneck in the network?


A more detailed description:

Here is my setup.
Router:
Linksys WRT300N v1.1 running DD-WRT v24-sp2 (10/10/09) mega.

Stream From:
Windows XP Desktop
Intel P4 3.4GHZ
2GB Ram
5400RPM Hard drive
10/100Mbps Realtek RTL8139 NIC
(no wireless card)

Stream To:
Windows XP laptop
Intel Core 2 Duo 1.4GHZ
2GB Ram
NVIDIA Geforce 8400M GS
Hard Drive 4500RPM
Dell Wireless 1390 WLan Mini-Card (wireless G)
I don't have a wireless N adapter for the laptop

Here is an example to illustrate what I am seeing on my end. I am streaming a 349 MB
video file from my server to my laptop with a run time of 48 minutes 12 second. With
Media Player Classic I see stuttering(frame jumps) and stoppage(video stops for .5-1.5s)
right away during the introduction. With VCL player I see 3-4 stoppages due to buffering
interspersed throughout the duration of the video. (More so in the evening see below)

Answer:Problem Streaming Video through a wireless G Network

1st up, I`d have said the 5400rpm drive in the WinXP box with the realtek 8139 NIC, then I saw the chart with the Channel saturation. Surely channel 3 would be better for you with only 2x users either side!?

1st off, skip that realtek card, I`d use a decent quality Intel for replacement, done this myself recently and saw quite a noticeable increse in throughput.

2nd, maybe try running a cable to rule out the wireless side of things (if it`s still somewhat choppy it`s the server side hardware, if it cures it it`s almost certainly the popularity of wireless G in your area).

That is quite some use of the limited bandwidth allocated for wireless G, if you want to be naughty, set your location (Router GUI) to one other than yours and see if you can sneak onto one of the channels not normally available to you to see if that helps, not recomended though.

Lastly it`s time to upgrade the antennae on your router or better still, upgrade your router to a dual band one with wireless G and N if your laptop supports N that is.

Sorry just re-read your post, you don`t have N capability on your laptop.

Looks like your only options are, in order of cost (cheapest 1st(maybe))

1) run a cable (kinda defeats the whole point of having a latop though)
2) use directional antennae on your router (again you`d be kinda limited to where you can use it)

I have just noticed that there is one signal stronger than yours in the graph, "Looksea" are you closer to that AP th... Read more
