Setting up a Prismiq Media Player to show a VLC media stream

I recently spent so many hours getting a video stream enabled from my PC to my Prismiq Media Player that I want to spare the agony for any of you who want to try it yourselves:

1. Enable the remote media agent

Telnet to your MediaPlayer. Login as 'root'. By default, no password is required.

Edit the following line in the configuration file magent.conf (in the 'etc' directory):




Restart the MediaPlayer by typing 'reboot' from the Linux prompt.

2. Connect to the media agent by telneting to port 2253

3. Setup the MP to listen for the multicast:

set video_layer 1

4. Stream the media from the VLC server:

Install VLC from and fire it up
Open File or DVD or Network Stream.
Check 'Stream output'.
Select 'Settings…' next to 'Stream output'
Check 'UDP' and set the IP and port to the same values set in the Prismiq Media Player (e.g. 1234)
Check 'MPEG TS'
Check 'Video codec' and select 'mp2v' and bitrate (e.g. 3072 kb/s)
Check 'Audio codec' and select 'mpga' and bitrate (e.g. 128 kb/s)
Click 'OK' and 'OK' to finish -Enjoy your video

  3. Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple
    ipad and tested to see if it can survive a forty foot drop,
    just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has
    83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
