This will eventually be the smart playlist generator, streaming to icecast based on network playlist.
- To make your tv stream manully, you can use code like
$find /var/www/stable-flv-files/ -name "*ogg" -print > playlist.txt
to make a playlist. Then
#!/bin/bash for i in $(cat playlist.txt); do echo "streaming $i to icecast2 streamer ... "; cat $i | oggfwd -p -n "Plumi TV" localhost 8000 password /plumi.ogg echo "DONE with $i" ; done
Will stream OGG videos in a loop. The stream will break in between videos.
Check you managment interface above, for the icecast stream URL, then open it in VLC and watch your TV channel.
stay tuned for better ways .
