HTTP Media Server for VLC
We ( actually I and some of my friends ) needed to watch movies and listen to songs wirelessly from a desktop which has all the hard disks attached to it. SMB, AFP, etc were too much of a hassle to set up and not to mention slow, jittery performance. I am looking at you Mac OS ( SMB 1 in 2016 ?). Hence the python script.
Shows the playlist directly in vlc. So that you can click and play :). Both random and incremental seek in vlc is supported. Playing directly in the browser is supported too.
Requires netifaces other than python standard libary. Have fun!
PyPi package - [videopy](https://pypi.python.org/pypi/videopy/0.0.1)
pip install videopy
- videopy [-h] [–directory DIRECTORY] [–port PORT] [–foreground]
- [–stop] [–restart] [–pid PID]
-h, --help show this help message and exit
—directory DIRECTORY, -d DIRECTORY Directory where the media is located
--port PORT, -p PORT Port the Media Server will bind to
—foreground, -f Start the Media Server in the foreground
--stop Stop the Media Server.
—restart Restart the Media Server
--pid PID Location to store the pid file
Just run vlc http://[ip-address of the machine running the service]:[1149 or the port the service is running at]/vlc
To play on a html5 enabled browser use http://[ip-address of the machine running the service]:[1149 or the port the service is running at]
Hope it helps you as much as it’s helping us.
Issues and Pull Requests are welcome.
But most importantly have fun.
