Newbz! Come For Instruction!! All Problems Answered Here!

if you are a newb but want to stream video, heres how:

don't ask me for live, it don't know how

1. you want a folder for all your files, so make a new folder straight on a drive (ex: c:\videos) you want it straight on your drive because its easier than typing a long path

2. encode all your files to nsv. if you don't know how, go to the "NSV Batch Encoder" and add all the files. then encode them and put them in your new folder. do NOT put anything but NSVs in that folder or it will screw up your stream

3. go to your headers file (prolly in c:\program files\nsvtools\) and enter the info as follows (without paranthesis):

changeme (do NOT change, its the password)
content-type:video/nsv (do NOT change)
icy-metadata:0 (do NOT change)
icy-name:My Awesome iTV station (change to the title of your station)
icy-genre:Video (change if you want)
icy-pub:1 (0 is nonpublic, 1 is public)
icy-br:128 (do NOT change)
icy-url:http://www.awesome.com (your website)
icy-irc:None (IRC channel)
icy-icq:None (ICQ number)
icy-aim:None (AIM screenname)
icy-reset:1 (do NOT change)

4. open up SHOUTcast and a DOS window (go to Run... and put in cmd or command.com)

5. in DOS, follow these steps:

cd program path without drive (ex: \program files\nsvtools)
nsvscsrc 127.0.0.1:8001:headers.txt your video folder (ex: c:\videos)


---
when i come out with my program for streaming it will be simpler, ask any questions you have!

Hi everyone:

Keep in mind that DOS Windows DO NOT work with WinXP though.

Windows XP has a command line interface, Start > Run > cmd

While this isn't DOS, it sometimes is referred to a DOS Window by people who have been around for a while. If you do not know how to use the command line interface in XP, or still believe you can't then you probably shouldn't be using NSVtools in the first place.

if you have a firewall, router, or windows XP, then you have to open your ports. same thing happened to me, and then i opened the ports: worked like a charm. also, if you are running on an old Dial-Up, you might not be able to send the data in real-time

Hate to burst your bubble Sawg, but MANY of us can stream our cams using NSV LiveCap WITHOUT any major problems (aside from the daily crash). Do *I* understand command line tools?? NO! So you assertation is a little strong, don't ya think?

It's streaming VIDEOS that HARDLY ANY of us understand (except for those who understand command line tools).

Which is why I can't wait for the day in which WE AS HUMANS don't have to use a command line interface even though the computer obviously does.

Cheers for now

The command line can allow a far greater ability to control software than any GUI ever could. Its straight forward and you do not need fluffy graphics to lure you to the next step.

That being said, a balance should be made between command line and GUI to allow every one - regardless of experience level - the ability to effectively use the software.
