    In ADC/Downloads I do not see an entry for iPhone.

    I only see these:

    Is it maybe only available to Registered iPhone developers? That would suck really bad...

    *MSS beta is the only item in the iPhone download section. Downloads as a .dmg (tiny) w/three items: readme/rtf, mss & testpage.html

    Not sure what you mean about registered being different. You have to log in just to see the download page at all AFAIK. As far as the cost....got's to pay to play - welcome to the big time world of software development. Consider it a down payment, as it won't be the last expense if you intend to stick around

    It's a command line tool in SL. /usr/bin/mediastreamsegmenter

    Good luck in getting it to work. I've tried QuickTime Broadcaster, VLC 1.0.1 and have had no success.

    Different files/versions.

    The one w/SL is 108kb dated 5.18.2009

    The beta via download is 283kb and dated 8.7.2009

    The fact that you're working with an older version, versus a more recent beta may explain at least some of the issues you're having now.

    I see, thanks.

    I am trying to read the man for mediastreamsegmenter but it is very unclear how to take a video file in your local disk and segment it. Probably we will need to wait until Squeeze, or Episode Pro come up with a user-friendly segmenter.

    Get the more recent beta and check the examples with the readme.rtf (which has the man contents as well). I'd post it here, but it is restricted, sorry.
  • eselsea Level 1 Level 1 (10 points)
    Thanks for the info. I don't want to pay $99 for the developer program just to play with the beta. I'll wait for the production version in a future update.

    That's nuts. If it comes with SL as a command line interface, why is it not widely available to SL users?

    Obviously there's an update already to what shipped in SL last week, and I assume from KT's replies it's only available to those who paid for the iPhone Developer Program.

    If you're only interested in goofing around with HTTP Live Streaming to your iPhone, I suggest you sign up for an evaluation license of the beta of Wowza Media Server version 2.0, which is free. I used it and QuickTime Broadcaster to do a proof-of-concept of HTTP Live Streaming with my DV camera.

    Thanks for the tip. I actually need just to segment VOD clips, not live streaming...
