Currently Being ModeratedSep 17, 2005 10:23 PM (in response to S. Jones)disappointing that no one else is streaming live content here, or else not willing to talk about it.
It's really not working well at all.
Going to have to use (wince) real audio... that seems to work well for everyone. But i don't like it one bit!
Currently Being ModeratedSep 18, 2005 9:48 PM (in response to S. Jones)You may want to give people a little time to read and respond.
As for myself, well, I am willing to talk about it, but you are a few steps ahead of me. So what I could say wouldn't be of much help, but here it is:
I just did a first broadcast on my local network. A "manual unicast", and it seems fine. My next step is to try it on the Internet. If and when I succeed, I'll let you know.
Currently Being ModeratedSep 18, 2005 10:34 PM (in response to Yvon Couture)Funny, I've given the same advice to so many people.
I thought that a week was enough time to assume no reply would be forthcoming.
color me mistaken!
I have actually solved this problem.
here's what was wrong and how I solved it:
1. The above code does work, in that it loads a quicktime player, and will play the stream.
However, the reliability and quality are quite poor.
2. Disable and intro or outro mp3 file you may have set up to play on your broadcast. At least under shoutcast, this is a source of many errors in terms of establishing a connection with Quicktime, and then suddenly changing the content, bitrate, sample rate and often the content tag.
3. link to a quicktime file using the QTSRC tag.
this will tell quicktime that regardless of your ultimate conent (real time live stream which is theoretically not supported) that you want the browser plugin to use quicktime anyway.

[PARAM NAME="autoplay" VALUE="false" ]
This is currently up and working fairly well.
Thanks for your reply.

Currently Being ModeratedSep 21, 2005 11:55 PM (in response to sillydog701)One note about the code supplied above:
It works fine in Safari, IE, Opera, Mozilla, and Camino. But it does not work in Firefox on a mac or a pc.
Currently Being ModeratedSep 22, 2005 7:08 AM (in response to S. Jones)It works for Mozilla, but not for Firefox?
Do you have correct QuickTime plugin installed for Firefox?
