Thread: Streaming Video Software

  1. #1
    I need a prog I can use to stream videos so someone can watch a video from my pc. Needs to be able to have someone open up IE and put in my ip address and then it will open up Media Player and play it. Ive tried Windows Media Encoder but its not working.
    Need a cheap/easy way of modding your xbox? Check this out.

    you should use a tiny web server ( like the one from http://www.aldostools.com/ )
    and create an html file like below:
    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"><html><OBJECT ID="MediaPlayer1" width=400 height=250 classid="CLSID:22D6F312-B0F6-11D0-94AB-0080C74C7E95"
    codebase="http://activex.microsoft.com/activex/controls/mplayer/en/nsmp2inf.cab#Version=6,0,02,902" standby="Loading Microsoft Windows Media Player components..." type="application/x-oleobject">
    <PARAM NAME="FileName" VALUE="YOUR_VIDEO.WMV">
    <PARAM NAME="animationatStart" VALUE="true">
    <PARAM NAME="transparentatStart" VALUE="true">
    <PARAM NAME="autoStart" VALUE="true">
    <PARAM NAME="showControls" VALUE="true">
    <EMBED type="application/x-mplayer2" pluginspage="http://www.microsoft.com/Windows/MediaPlayer/"
    SRC="YOUR_VIDEO.WMV" name="MediaPlayer1" width=400 height=250 AutoStart=true>
    </EMBED></OBJECT></html>
    then edit the YOUR_VIDEO.WMV in the code above to your filename (both instances)

    After the excellent answer above this could well be obsolete but if the quality isn't that important and you want something quick and easy then camtasia from techsmith has a facility to let you do just that in conjunction with Y! messenger.

    You hit play and the recipient views the vid in the webcam window of their Y! messenger.
    I plan on beating him to death with his kids. I'll use them as a bludgeon on his face. -

    How do I make an html file like that and what do I do with it?

    unzip aldo's web server to a folder
    paste that html code in my first reply into notepad and save it as video.html
    put YOUR_VIDEO.WMV and video.html into the same folder
    then go to http://127.0.0.1/video.html to see it
    change 127.0.0.1 to your IP when accessing remotely, aldo's server will display the IP in the status window

    you can edit, with notepad, the screen size to match your video also in the html

    EDIT: but that html uses ActiveX script and if they have high security settings, like i do, you may have to link them to http://127.0.0.1/YOUR_VIDEO.WMV directly
