  • WG-RC at Internet2 2009 Fall Member Meeting
    • I will be bringing an HD camera and will be multicasting this meeting. There are currently no plans to have an H.323 endpoint.
      • Use Videolan
      • The mrl will be udp://@
      • To test your multicast, use the mrl udp://@ (that is our Union South construction HD multicast).
      • Here is the method I used to multicast the meeting:
        • Sony HVR-V1U with microphone
        • Firewire connection
        • Dell XPS laptop
          • (I'm still running Windows XP)
          • (for the Union South construction camera (see above), we use a Mac Mini using Boot Camp and Windows XP)
        • VideoLAN version 1.0.2
        • batch file I used to start VideoLAN (save to your system; rename batch to bat)
          • WARNING! Important! Edit this file and replace with your own multicast address
          • Thanks to Anton Kapella for his help in crafting the parameters of this file
        • I put this batch file on the desktop. Then the procedure is
          • Set up camera
          • Set up computer
          • Connect Firewire from Camera to computer
          • double-click the batch file
          • test - check for multicast
      • Here is the method I used to add unicast streams
        • Apple Mac Pro
          • running Snow Leopard, but that is not required
        • VideoLAN version 1.0.2
        • Shell script file to start multicast-to-unicast and transcode
          • WARNING! Important! Edit this file and replace with your own multicast address!
          • Thanks to Anton Kapella for his help in crafting the parameters of this script!
          • To run this shell script
            • put the script in a directory
            • open up a terminal window or log in remotely
            • run the script
