    Default how to: vlc player to dreambox

    hi guys,

    setting up vlc player and dreambox can sometimes be tricky,with these simple tips you should overcome any difficulties.

    im using dm800 hd
    gemini 5.1 ssl 82

    vlc player on my pc is 0.9.6 version older/newer versions for windows can be found here
    Index of /pub/videolan/vlc/

    install vlc player on your pc select custom install and select all boxes and close program for now.

    now lets install vlc client plugin on dreambox
    vlc client (dreambox plugin) is provided in rar below, download,extract and send IPK file to tmp folder using dcc e2,find the tmp folder on using dreambox and install ipk and reboot,vlc will now be in plugins

    or simply use ts panel or tunisiasat this may be easier for newbies not familiar with manual ftp set up

    set up the vlc plugin on your dreambox
    press green button
    select vlc
    press green button (add server)
    server address: pc ip address
    movie directory :change to folder on your pc where your movies are kept Example c:/movies
    press ok
    press blue button (set default)

    now open vlc player on your pc/laptop
    select tools
    preferences
    input/codecs
    change server default port to 8080
    save and close

    select tools
    select web interface ( you should always select web interface first before using the dreambox vlc plugin)this will stop crash log green screen on gemini image

    you should be now set up.

    select green button
    select vlc
    you should now see movie folder on pc
    use the ok button on remote to select files
    dont use blue button (play video)

    * you will need to select web interface everytime you start vlc on your pc/laptop before using vlc plugin on dreambox

    *you control the movie fast foward rewind pause etc via the controls on your vlc control panel on the pc/laptop and not on the dreambox remote

    have managed to record from my dm to my nas hard drive, and then watch what is recorded on my nas via my dm.
    my question is, am i able to watch films i have d/l on my nas drive ( avi format) via the dm vlc player, have tried doing what trent1579 says, but having no joy.
    the image i am currently using is a nabilosat blackhole v 0.12.
    can play the films via my pc from the nas, but i wanted to eliminate turning my pc on, and use the dm instead.

    any help will be appreciated

    Let's see if I've got this right.
    These instructions are to set up VLC on your PC to serve video files from a directory (folder) so that a VLC client on your DM can view them?

    Isn't it just easier to make your PC directory sharable and then use the Media Player on the DM to navigate that shared directory and play whatever you want.

    hi guys,

    you require vlc plugin on your dreambox and vlc installed on your pc/laptop

    the method is tested on gemini 5.1,i do not know if it works on edg,nabliosat,cvs,sifteam etc as all images slightly differ in functionality

    Hi All,

    On my VU+ Uno all I do is, Load Uno's IP Address
    Press enter, Pc connects to Uno then the virtual
    remote page opens (OpenWebif, Image Openvix).
    Chose channel Click open, minimize picture. stick
    it in the pc monitors corner.
    It will also move dish from sat to sat.
    can use VCL any were in the world with laptop to
    view any channel on Uno. (If Uno is in Standby)
    No need to load VLC into Uno, just install on PC.

    BF.

    I have a DM500S, image is Commando V14.6, connected to my router using a Wifi Bridge and have been trying for ages to try and watch the box on my PC (using VISTA) but no matter what guide I use I just can't get it to work.
    Does the software from the above link actually work?
