Play SRT from server

It's how to play SRT from SRTMiniServer by:

  • vMix (Windows)
  • OBS (macOS & Windows)
  • Larix Player (iOS & Android)
  • Haivision Play Pro (iOS & Android)

As you known SRTMiniServer accepts incoming SRT feeds and converts to NDI feeds. It's main function, but ...

What's about provide SRT to play ?

For example we want read SRT by other vMix remotely when NDI is impossible.

Few months ago we provide power function called "CrossLine" and it allows re-sending SRT to player.

Setup SRTMiniServer

For this guide:

  • we have Line 1 with stream id as streamkey1ABC
  • incoming SRT from Line 1 will be re-sent to Line 1 (by CrossLine matrix)

Main points for understanding:

  • encoder stream SRT to Line 1 with streamid streamkey1ABC
  • for player we should use streamid equals streamkey1ABC#feedbackplay or streamkey1ABC#talkback (we add special suffix)

NOTES: for one line you can connect up to 5 players
