h series live stream over upnp ( dlna )

Post by nroberto13 »

Hi,

have anyone had any success feeding a dlna server with a livestream and then playing on a H series TV? I tried 2 dlna servers ( serviio and xupnpd ) but my H7000 refuses to play the live stream, saying the format is not supported. the same stream is working fine on D series TV.

Hi, I am using Bubble UPNP to stream Showbox app streams from my HTC One to my Sammy UE58H5203. the only problem I have is that the TV doesn't ad the subtitles from the stream.

dlna is not for live streams :) You have to dump live stream to file and than try playing it :)
I do NOT support "latest fw" at ALL. If you have one you should block updates on router and wait for it to STOP being "latest":)
If you want me to help you please paste FULL log(s) to "spoiler"/"code" bbcodes or provide link(s) to pasted file(s) on http://ctrlv.it/ Otherwise "NO HELP"!!!
If you want root DISABLE internet access to your device!!!!
DO NOT EVER INSTALL FIRMWARE UPGRADE !!!!

I know dlna was conceived for static content, but there's no reason why you couldn't inject dlna headers around a live stream and provide it to clients. the only drawback comparing to static content is the lack of seek, but in live content you don't really need seek. And there are already some dlna servers which does this to live streams. see serviio, xupnpd.

DLNA is for playing FILES. One of the first thing DLNA client does (in other words TV) is to ask for it's size, header, and last "few bytes" :) That's why you CAN'T play live streams, ONLY dumps of live streams :)

I appreciate your replies, but I guess you didn't even check what I said, so I recommend you to read the following 2 articles:
1. http://wiki.samygo.tv/index.php5/How_watch_IPTV
2. http://wiki.serviio.org/doku.php?id=add_live_feeds

Well all of this is either deprecated or has nothing to do with H and will not work on it :) Good luck butI don't think you will get far ;)

Reviving an old topic here.

I'm using xupnpd with my H-series TV as well and indeed there appears something odd where quite a few streams are not working with this setup. Those streams are working fine with any other player (VLC, Kodi). Some streams do work however. I have not been able to figure out the difference between working and non-working streams. I've looked at multiple working and non-working streams with VLC and I cannot find an obvious pattern.

I had not heard of Serviio before, I will look at it.

Regarding the usage of UPNP/DLNA for live streaming. I have multiple live TV streams that do work properly on my H-series TV through xupnpd with the TV accessing them over UPNP/DLNA. Using PulseAudio-DLNA it is also possible to stream audio to the TV (works on H-series). So apparently it's possible to have live streams with UPNP/DLNA.

It seems that m3u8 files (usually pointing to HLS streams) cannot be played this way on the H-series. Direct streams work properly.

Note using a Fritzbox it is possible to stream radio stations to the TV over DLNA using its web radio feature.

I have found a solution for this. Using a program called hlspxd it is possible to proxy HLS streams to plain HTTP streams. It requires some patches to work properly with the H-series, see here: https://github.com/Entware/rtndev/pull/7

With this I have been streaming quite a lot of HLS streams to my TV over DLNA together with xupnpd. Both xupnpd and hlspxd are running on a Raspberry Pi 1b. It should be possible to run both xupnpd and hlspxd on the TV itself as well.
