    Looking for a "streaming" pro

    We have a client looking to broadcast an existing stream through one of our servers in order to amplify their bandwidth size.

    Ie.

    The server would suck their live stream from their office and users would enter and address attached to our server to view it. This way, there is only one feed to their office, but multiple feeds from our datacenter are possible.

    They would like to broadcast using Windows Media Player as the default player of choice and their current stream is in MMS format.

    Any assistance will be properly compensated.

    Media streaming

    Hello, I am an accomplished Windows Server 2003 server admin and one of my specialties is Windows media streaming. Currently I have 4 media servers I manage. What you want can completley be accomplished very well, with a software on there end properly configured to stream to a Windows Media Publishing Point.

    Please let me know what I can do to help.

    One caveat, we'd like this to run off one of our Linux machines. I've got as far as installation VLC, but can't seem to get it configured properly. If you're still able to help, please let me know.

    So you would like your VLC to stream to your Windows media publishing point? Is that correct?

    vlc -vvv --color mmsh://windowsserver:8080 --sout '#transcode{vcodec=DIV3,vb=256,scale=1,acodec=mp3,ab=32,channels=2}td{access=mmsh,mux=asfh,dst=linuxserver:8080}'
    then u can access it via:
    vlc mmsh://linuxserver:8080
    or
    WMP mms://linuxserver:8080

    i have just tested it on my pc and it works
    u may want (need) to play with transcode options (those are from vlc docs) but it should work

    aa btw -vvv --color is for debug only - u may remove it

    Any chance you could write the command I would need? Assume that the URL of the current stream is mms://currentstream and that the URL I want to host the new stream on is http://www.newstream.com

    Check out peercast http://www.peercast.org which I blieve supports Windows Media streaming and also runs on linux. I used peercast years ago to run a p2p stream but can't remember anything about it.

    Basically you'd relay the original stream and re broadcast it from the linux server.

    hmm it seems u dont have transcode module?

    try vlc --list (or better: vlc --list | grep transcode) and check if u have:
    stream_out_transcode Transcode stream output

    I get this:

    vlc --list | grep transcode
    VLC media player 0.8.6 Janus
    starting VLC root wrapper... using UID 0 (root)
    ***************************************
    * Running VLC as root is discouraged. *
    ***************************************

    It is potentially dangerous, and might not even work properly.
    stream_out_transcode Transcode stream output
