Setup Personal Media Stream


Recommended Posts

I was going to send this question to info@hak5.org but I figured I would just post it up here and let the makers determine if they want to use this for their show.

How can I set up video stream that will randomly pick files from my hard drives to play? Like set up my own channel to play shows like Hak5, CommandN, and OpenAlpha? I have a D-Link DSM-520 that I use to stream video from my computer to my TV? Would it be easy to publish that stream into some type of IPTV?

Set VLC to pump out a stream, then add all your IPTV shows to a playlist, select shuffle mode (mybe throw in a couple of logo'd clips/idents if you want a 'tv channel' feel, then press play.

This should work anyways, I've never tried it though. I have streamed with VLC before, it usually works well, but I've never tried it with random files...

I don't understand what you're trying to do. Do you want to stream a movie into your player as you're downloading it, did you download it and does he want to see it next over the network, or is the idea completely different?


Take a look at icecast. It can stream video just as easily as audio.
