1.6.6 works great under W7 & OpenElec, simultaneous transcoded streams. CPU has jumped to around 25% per stream, but the quality at 720p is excellent.

Thats b/c its really 720 now, and not pixels 720 width. Smile
So theres alot more pixels to transcode

iOS is almost ready. I think...
Testing iOS stream for 10 minutes

Get ready for iOS Release! Smile
remoteCeton part done... make simple web page for initial release

iOS Transcoding! PreRelease build: http://www.mediafire.com/?53pb8642nzpp2h6
No issues with it... just doesnt have a nice interface yet and transcoding options are fixed.

Overwrite webfiles/index.html file with this one:
http://www.mediafire.com/?8dcrw5onyebneoz
Startup works 100% now. It waits until stream is ready until it starts the video.

Todo: make it look alot nicer. options to change tuner/resolution/bitrate.

This version will truly make slingbox useless for me... Smile

This is fantastic! I just tried it out on 3g and on wifi... is there a way to have it "sense" what the connection speed is and automatically adjust the bitrate on the fly? Or at a minimum like you suggest, having some option where we can pick the bitrate. As I noticed on 3G the audio is pretty jerky.

Yea its possible. Smile Maybe later but for now I'm going to put in options to adjust it.
The current settings are a bit high to watch over 3g.

EDIT: If you want to do your own testing, open up webfiles/index.html and modify this line:
Quote:xmlhttp.open("GET","/play?tuner=4&channel="+channel+"&transcodeBitrate=1000&transcodeResolution=480&hls=true",false);

EDIT2: Download to v1.7.0 is on the first post now. Old download link is still there if you want to stay at the previous version.

Well, no surprise: it works great.

Now a lot of ideas come to mind. I'm guessing the beuty of this is the ability to customize the interfece to your own likings. In my case, I'd love to have a clean, simple page with the logos of my 16 favorite channels. I'd like to access the EPG too, but quick access would be great. Also, bitrate selection is essential (and also access to the direct stream: iPad 3 will be able to play it :rolleyesSmile

What are you doing now?

A few things/ideas:

- A lot of (small) .ts files remain in the webfiles folder. Should there be a clean up line in the code?

- It would be good to be able to select the temp folder for the transcoding files.

- Are you thinking about a different interface for iPhone/iPad (on iPad looks extremely small)

- Is there a way to start a video stream on an iOS device from a shortcut containing channel & transcode settings, the same way you can do it on VLC? That would be fantastic: you could create a shortcut to, say, ESPN, and just start streaming, or we could create a folder with shortcuts to favourite channels (and there are free apps on the store to assign a logo to each shortcut)

I probably won't be able to do direct streaming without making a real app
That might be something for later or someone else to try, since all the calls are there Smile
Will release a nicer interface later tonight. Then I have to rewrite part of the code/config file to handle different tuners

Hopefully a yes to everything. definitely 1, 2 and most likely 4.

I see you changed the direct access to transcoded streams through
PHP Code:
http://localhost/play?tuner=4&channel=592&transcodeBitrate=4000&transcodeWidth=720&redirect=true 
to
PHP Code:
http://localhost/play?tuner=4&channel=592&transcodeBitrate=4000&transcodeResolution=720&redirect=true 

It's been a few hours since your last update... that is so not you Laugh

Thanks for the great plugin. I have used Sling & Vulkano. Both were decent but had their share of problems. But this little gem is a beauty.

Thanks!!!

Ok, you've just about made my year. I'm sitting in my hotel room 1500 miles away from home, watching live streaming HDTV from my house on my iPad. This is truly an incredible piece of work. I have a lot of feature requests but I'll sit on them for now just so I can play with this thing. I got pretty frustrated last weekend trying to get it working well before this trip (glimmers of hope, then it would screw up). Just loaded up 1.7 on the home computer (god bless LogMeIn) and it suddenly works like a freaking champ. Thanks for all your hard work. Truly impressive.
