    web-x-tv vlc streamts fix for D500

    I have been playing with web-x-tv to watch TV from my dreambox on my PC. I couldn't get it working at first as I had vlc 9, once I downgraded to vlc 0.8.6i from Index of /pub/videolan/vlc/ I got it working. Only through web-x-tv though, the direct vlc button doesn't work. Anyway the picture was badly displayed and unwatchable most of the time.

    I did some investigations and found this web page Dreambox Web-X-TV streaming fix where a guy is selling a fix for dreambox's at 10 Euros which should solve this problem.

    A bit more searching and found this page:
    Translated version of http://www.novisf.com/wbb3/index.php?page=Thread&threadID=5522:

    On there some guy has a similar fix and has attached it. He also put it on his web site at http://traxme.net/streamts.zip I've also attached it in case it goes missing.

    Here at the instructions from the web site about how to install:

    Zip includes streamts and inetd.conf.

    Instructions for installing:

    1) Copy streamts in / var / bin /
    2) Copy inetd.conf in / var / etc /
    3) Telnet box
    4) chmod 755 / var / bin / streamts

    5) ps
    6) kill <pid for inetd> (use pid shows that ps)
    7) inetd / var / etc / inetd.conf

    Steps 5,6 and 7 must be repeated after each reboot.
    This has made web-x-tv usable for me. I still have to close web-x-tv and reopen it when I change channels, but at least it works.

    Unfortunately I have to retpe in the commands everytime I reboot the dreambox to manually load the fix.

    Next step is to get this to run automatically each time I reboot and also try to get my hands on Ridaxs streamts. I'd also like to get it working directly through vlc.

    I can't be the first person to notice these problems, so if anyone has any suggestions I'd like to hear.

    The PLi team have had a fix for the streaming problems in their images fro the last few releases.

    Thanks mate, I'll add this to my Nabilosat image. Currently I use an alternatove method of streaming but I'd much rather have VLC doing it properly as it's my main media player on the PC.

    With most images they call a file called init from /var/etc on bootup
    you can put the lines into that 5,6,7 to try

    It depends where in the /etc/Rcs file the /var/etc/init it is called though as it may call it before.
    If you have a linux distro I can tell you how to extract the squashfs and redo it so these are the default settings.

    Thanks for the info, I might give the pli image a try, maybe steal their streamts and put it in dw if it's compatible.

    I'd be interested to hear how to use squashfs for a more permanent solution. I'm used to unix, but I'm no expert.

    Stream work nice,without problem with Open PLI only.With Gemini and other images problems always stay.
    I try Open PLI and Dreamstream - work perfect.With Open PLI Dreamstrem is solution,not Web X Tv.
