How to upgrade Mac play rtmp stream

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I am on SqueezeCenter 7.3.3 and loaded BBCiplayer 0.9m, I cannot open the mac play rtmp stream. Any help for this version. Also how do I know which version to upgrade to, in order to get this stream to work. . I used to have the link, but once I updated and reinstalled my media player (VCL player to stream and record), I lost the URL that I used to use. Can someone explain to me how I can use live streaming on the Mac?

VLC doesn't have support for RMTP until the 2.1 release. To fix this, we need to use the rtmpdump. OR use the Homebrew package manager:

brew install rtmpdump

And then, ensure that you have VLC installed and then perform the following command to be able to play RTMP stream:

rtmpdump -r rtmp://foobar/live/stream --quiet | /Applications/ -

This will launch the VLC as a fd://0. Click on it to make the streaming work. You can also make a VLC alias so your command will be more easy. And then add .bashrc, .zshrc or .profile into it. Restart the terminal.

Alias vlc=/Applications/

If you don't want to have long commands on the terminal, you can also use the following:

function rtmp_open() {
        rtmpdump -r $1 --quiet | /Applications/ fd://0 --playlist-autostart

Copy and paste it to your .bashrc, .zshrc or .profile. Restart the terminal.

And finally, to make it run simply type the link of the RTMP stram that you wish to play.

$ rtmp_open rtmp://foobar/live/stream

You can fix this problem by revisiting your Mac Operating System X 10.6 and it works if you play the same RTSP MPEG-4 stream into a Movie Importer patch. You can also find another way to resolve your issue. 


Just find a trusted website to upgrade your stream so that you can play your videos without having any issue. Download a latest version of VLC Player included codec which is fully compatible with Mac Operating System. I hope you will not face this issue again. Thanks.
