Thread: Streaming on IOS/IPad

    Lightbulb Streaming on IOS/IPad

    HI,
    I encounter a lot of problems when trying to stream/transcode movies in 1080p onto my iPad 2 (IOS).
    Which software (client side) do you recommend ?
    What are the settings at backend and client side to be set ?
    Many thanks for your help/support.
    Thanks
    DM

    Hi,

    I'd recommend trying the 8player for iOS devices (and in KRR, go to Devices pane, double-click on your device and select the 8player device profile).

    Thanks Dennis for the /Very/ quick response

    But 8Player does not stream anything because of lack of codec support "decoder for this video is unavailable"...
    Any other thoughts ?

    It should play most files (looking at their product page: http://08software.com/products/8player/), so I'm a bit surprised why it wouldn't play something.

    Can you please right-click in KRR on one such file and post the output of the "File Information" command?

    Or it doesn't play any of your files at all? If that's the case, perhaps there is some other issue and I'll need to see logs for that. To enable logging, tick the Enable Logging item under the Tools menu, then restart the server, try playing one file on the iPad and once it fails, stop the server and send the logs to support (at) kooraroo (dot) com.

    To find where logs are, go to Tools -> Options -> File Locations and click the Open button on the Logs folder.

    Is there any way to set something to transcode to IOS devices ?

    Do you mean ffdshow on the iPad or on the PC? You don't need any codecs installed to use and stream (and transcode) through KooRaRoo on the PC and the player should have taken care of playing files on the iPad also without any additional software, as far as I know.

    Is there any way to set something to transcode to IOS devices ?
    Yes, but ideally you'd want to stream natively as much as possible. Let's try and get that sorted out. To transcode manually, you can right-click on a file in KRR and select Transcode. Then choose your device profile and you'll get a list of formats and codecs that files can be transcoded to (it varies per-device).

    I mean ffdshow on the ipad, into the 8player folder... see http://www.ffmpeg4ios.org/

    If i transcode manually, how can I play it on the device afterwards ?

    I don't have an iPad or any iOS-based device to test on at the moment (I'll be able to test one in a couple of days), but in my understanding 8player should not need any third-party libraries to play files. Can you please send a log to support trying to play one file, so that I could check if that gives me any hints as to why playback fails?

    KRR will know that you've transcoded manually and will use that file - you just need to make sure that you've selected your device in the manual transcoding dialog.

    Unfortunately it does need alternates libraries to play files..
    What do you mean by trying to send a log to support trying to play one file ? Howto do this ?

    Just see my previous post in this same thread: http://forum.kooraroo.com/showthread...full=1#post626

    There are other alternatives to 8player as well, so we'll get this sorted out, even if not with 8player, but with something else.
