Hi all - hope this is in the right forum! Didn't put it in the Plugins forum as that seems to be about third party plugins rather than official ones. I am running DVBViewer Pro V126.96.36.199 with NetStreaming.dll V188.8.131.52. I have NetStreaming configured with Unicast on port 1234 and can access the stream over my local network in VLC... however I have had problems trying to access the stream on my TV. I was hoping to be able to open the stream in an app on my Android device and cast it to my Chromecast to view on TV... but haven't had much luck so far. Many apps seem to have difficulty processing AC3 audio in the streams though, and any app that does allow the video to run doesn't seem to support casting. I have tried casting my PC screen to Chromecast via the Chrome plugin but sadly this is experimental and results in dropped frames. I've even tried installing Plex server on my PC and setting it up with an IPTV bundle but sadly this doesn't seem to work either! Basically I'm hoping that somebody has a solution that works. Even if it means running another service that transcodes the stream and rebroadcasts it. It's only for personal use and I don't plan on broadcasting to a large audience - just me. I have considered the Recording Service software but sadly that doesn't seem to play nice with the plugins. In addition to the Chromecast I also have the following devices available to use if a suggestion requires it: Apple TV (not the most recent one), Amazon Fire TV Stick, PS3, Raspberry Pi 2 Model B. Many thanks in advance if anybody can suggest a solution!
