view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi! I'm trying to stream a video to http with vlc on my headless Ubuntu Server box. I've stumbled across the following command: cvlc video.mp4 :sout=#std{access=http,mux=ts,dst=} Which always gives me the following error, no matter what port I try: [0x7fce68000df8] main stream output error: stream chain failed for `stddst=' [0x7fce64000b28] main input error: cannot start stream output instance, aborting (Hardware)
