    Webcast redirected to internal LAN


    Hi all,

    The issue at hand is buffering a live stream (e.g. International TV Channel -> www.jumptv.com) so that I can:
    1) Reduce the frames dropped and jitters (optional).
    2) Multicast/Unicast it to my internal subnet so that more than one clients can view the stream at one time.


    I am not aware of any current solutions. Anyone have a clue??

    Maybe a wget overlay??

    Thanks!

    Well, I don't know exactly how these live streams work (when it comes to file format and stuff), but I guess that you need to retransmit/recreate some headers and stuff to clients that connect.

    The solution that pops up at the top of my head is to use mencoder (from the MPlayer package) to decode the stream to some raw format which you can easily buffer, and using another mencoder instance for each client to reencode the stream for them. I dunno how much CPU power that will require, though.
