I'm trying to send unicast, video-only stream using jit.qt.broadcast
from behind a NAT to a Darwin streaming server somewhere on the
internet, wich should make stream available to anyone interested.
My problem is that I'm the only person on whole internet who can
receive the stream from darwin streaming server, and that makes my
non-existant ip one of the loneliest on the planet, please help!
here's what I've tried so far:
i've done random tests with h263 and mpeg4 codecs, but latter decided
to stick to mpeg4 for all programs and try the following :
streaming from apple's quicktime broadcaster, using automatic unicast
-> everything ok, lot of people all over the world could see the stream;
streaming from apple's quicktime broadcaster, using manual unicast
and manually ulpoaded .sdp file to DSS -> same as above:all ok;
streaming from jitter, jit.qt.broadcast, using unicast and setting
identical parameters as in apple's broadcaster, using previous sdp,
or uploaded one written by jitter->not ok: I was the only one who
could access the stream. I've started Activity Monitor to look at
network traffic, and it seemed that packets were being sent to Darwin
Streaming Server, but I'm not 100% sure on this. If open I the rtsp://
url/sdp from DSS, it seems that there is some incoming network
traffic, so it seems like the data is travelling from my computer to
DSS and back to me(the stream stops if I disconnect from internet).
I gave the patch to a friend with PPC, but he had the same results:
only he could see his stream.
If someone else opens the stream, Quicktime player would connect, but
it would do 'waiting for media' countdown, and then times out.
If someone is willing to try some things out with this DSS, I can
send servers IP offlist.
There's no special patch, I've used jit.qt.broadcast help file, but I
can modify one with the settings i tried, if needed. The suspect is
male, black/asian, some Intel processor, os x 10.4.7, max 4.6, jit
1.6.3b2, armed and dangerous.
