I got the following situation:
I have in the file: alias.stream.txt the following two lines:
I removed some server names and user logins for security.
To start those two streams, I enter the webmanager en start both stream with the following actions:
Start a new stream with the option rtplive and fill the name ‘axis’ in it.
Click on submit, and the stream is started and chunked.
In the webinterface I see the name ‘axis’ and can use that in the player urls to watch it back.
But when I start the second stream. I use the option shoutcast in stead of rtplive.
After that I see that the stream is started and chunked…
But now the big issue:
The name of the shoutcast stream is not shoutcast. It is the complete source url… And that is a complex url and cannot be used with the flash client.
To fix that I have to add a line to the alias.play.txt file with the following url:
But this is not done for the axis stream which has a rtplive type.
Is this default behavior? Because than I need to known when this occurs?
Cause we need to automate those aliases.
Does the shoutcast type always use the stream url for it’s naming? Or will that be changed to the same behavior als the rtplive way? That would be nice.
PS, we use the ‘!’ as seperator.
