Web streaming to TV?

Post by floid99 » Wed Jun 11, 2014 12:24 pm

Is it possible to send web streaming like a movie from Twonky server to TV in the same way as Twonky beam using the "Search or type URL"?
If it is not, somebody know any tool to do this?
Thanks

it would depend on the site, as there other factors at play here, like DRM, etc.
what type of device are you trying to send it from, phone, tablet, pc?

The one way I know of beaming from Twonky Server other than from the web interface or the twonky beam app is to use a the a url to built in beam of 7.x.x or greater
x.x.x.x:9000/beam?renderer=[BOOKMARK]&url=[URL]
where [BOOKMARK] is the twonky boomark or ip address of the client
where [URL] is the url of the item to be beamed

Example: beaming a video from your local server to a client

Code: Select all

http://192.168.1.2:9000/nmc/rpc/beam?renderer="192.168.1.3"&url=http://192.168.1.2:9000/disk/O0$10I270.mp4
Example: beaming a youtube video to a client

Code: Select all

http://192.168.1.2:9000/nmc/rpc/beam?renderer="192.168.1.3"&url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oJRMLfrlPvg
as for what web url's will be able to beamed, and to what the client will play, will be hit or miss
.
