Streaming to an Xbox?

Post by Jiberjaber » Sun Jan 01, 2006 7:36 pm

I have been trying without much success to stream video from ZM to my Xbox(s) to use them as convientiant viewers around the house...

They're all running XBMC (M Player) but I dont think I have the syntax of the playlist entry correct...

I have been creating .stm files (based in what I found in teh XBTV files) which are detected as playlists on XBMC. In there I have been putting an URL to the ZM stream,

http://192.168.1.5/cgi-bin/zms?Zode=jpe ... &maxfps=25

Looks like XBMC prefers .asf files, any way to stream them in ZM (ffmpeg or similar) ?

Anyone else tried this ?

If you have ffmpeg libraries installed you can stream in asf mode, though the normal Window Media Player viewer does start to lag fairly quickly.

Did you mean 'Zode' by the way? If so then it should be 'mode' obviously. To stream asfs change the mode to 'mpeg' and add a 'format=asf' url parm.

You ever get this working? Streaming to xbmc?

I'd like to try this as well.

Just read this thread:
http://www.zoneminder.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=3780

If we could get a python script to simply serve this mplayer url then we could get a xbmc plugin for zoneminder.

I know this is possible but I've never written a python script before.

This would also allow a cheap zoneminder client viewer for users.

Can you recommend a good video player to replace Windows media player?
Needs to be free, and as good as Media player. Media Player is not playing all of my downloaded files, I’m running XP and this is for downloaded files, not DVD’s movies.

The days of Xbox... Just install Zoneminder on a 2.6 Kernel Xebian install. I probably still have the precompiled Kernel along with 5 Xbox's in the cabinet that need worked on.

Heck, i've had Ubuntu running on the 360, you talk about the biggest pain to downgrade and get ahold of KK and the SDA disk. Was fun for about a week and then it got piled up with the rest of my projects. This was before I messed with Zoneminder, would have been cool to see it up and running if it would work with powerpc or whatever it is.
