Streaming?

by g360 » Fri Aug 12, 2016 1:38 pm

I've gotten local files to play but I am more interested in the streaming end of things.

VLC can stream a youtube video for example (albeit not in 360). Can the VR player do this? If not then what can I stream with the player or, more to the point, from where?

I did manage to get the apple video given as an example playing http://qthttp.apple.com.edgesuite.net/1010qwoeiuryfg/sl.m3u8

Just use the open file dialog, put the URL of your stream and it will work.

Not working for me. The player keeps switching between the green buffering bar and a black screen but video doesn't load. Anybody else had any problems or luck with this?

Hello,

I'm able to play it without any problem (GoPro VR PLayer 2.0 on OSX Mavericks)? Which operating system are you using? Can you try with the very default values?

Kind regards,
Olivier

Be sure to use VLC backend (Preferences > Video Decoding).

I also noticed that an empty space at the end of the url can break the process on Mac.
