Stream from VLC to DMP4400g

Unanswered Question

I have been reading about RTP, multicast and RTSP and interleaved RTSP.

I am not 100% sure that my DMP4400g is  able to receive and play a VLC live stream, but I am sure it should be, with the right amount of effort from me.

Arrangement stream server running VLC, same LAN, four DMP4400g units.

Does anyone have a vlc command-line that Just Works?

(have never used and know nothing about show-and-share. Should I go there?)

vlc -vvv "c:\video\video.mp4" --sout "#transcode{vcodec=mp4v,vb=2200,scale=1,acodec=mpga,ab=96,channels=2,samplerate=48000}:rtp{dst=CISCO.DMP.IP.ADDRESS,port=5004,mux=ts,ttl=5}" --sout-keep

Thanks very much for your reply. I am trying it now, but I am having no success. The DMP remains resolutely black.

Your command produces a unicast rtp stream direct to the DMP. I am trying to catch it with rtp://, rtp://. Both fail. The DMP UI pushes me towards multicast, which I don't really understand.

I thought next that I'd try multicast from/to That is no good either. Then to a subnet broadcast address. Still black. Wireshark on an independent port confirms broadcast and multicast are reaching the wire.

I have ssh connected-up Which is the catcher/player process on the DMP? Is it possible for me to see its debugging messages?

Thanks again very much for your help.
