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:
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.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
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.
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.
