These scripts need to be adjusted to your situation. The dreamboxip variable certainly needs to changed. You can experiment with the different encoding options yourself.

Revision [3400]

Edited on 2008-12-03 12:07:22 by WanWizard [fix incorrect link to the VLC website]
Additions:
There are several options to watch your dreambox over the internet. All discussed tools essentially work the same way, but take a different route to accomplish it. The only real requirement is a server/pc with [[http://www.videolan.org vlc]] installed. Vlc receives the full bandwidth stream from the dreambox and transcodes this stream to fit within your internet upload bandwidth. Transcoding is a cpu intensive task, but depending on the codecs you use a P3 800 does suffice.

{{image class alt="restream output" title="restream output" url="http://www.m4rtin.nl/re-stream/scrn-main-1.04.jpg"}}
This tool provides an interface to setup and control vlc, as well as an webinterface to zap through channels and recorded movies.
===== Boki15's Streaming Tool =====
Boki15's Streaming Tool provides an easy way to start and configure vlc on windows.

[[http://www.pli-images.org/forum/viewthread.php?forum_id=28&thread_id=5948&rowstart=0 More information]]
This tool provides an interface to setup and control vlc. You can use the normal webinterface to zap through channels. This also means the webinterface must be accessible from the internet. Please be aware of the security issues exposing your webinterface to the internet.
===== Script =====
The more advanced users can use a script to start vlc.
linux
%%
#!/bin/sh
dreamboxip=192.168.1.5
outputport=12345
outtrans=std{access=http,mux=ogg,dst=:$outputport}
trans=transcode{vcodec=DIV3,vb=350,scale=0.4,acodec=mpga,ab=96,channels=1}:
cmd="vlc -v htp://$inputurl:31344 :http-caching=2000 :sout=#$trans$outtrans"
echo $cmd
$cmd
%%
windows
%%
@echo off
set dreamboxip=192.168.1.5
set outputport=12345
set vlcpath=c:\program files\videolan\vlc
set outtrans=std{access=http,mux=ogg,dst=:%outputport%}
set trans=transcode{vcodec=DIV3,vb=350,scale=0.4,acodec=mpga,ab=96,channels=1}:
set cmd="%vlcpath%\vlc" -v http://%dreamboxip%:31344 :http-caching=2000 :sout=#%trans% %outtrans%
echo %cmd%
%cmd%
%%
These scripts need to be adjusted your situation. The dreamboxip variable certainly needs to changed. You can experiment with the different encoding options yourself.
Use the normal webinterface to zap through channels.

**On a personal note:** //I set this up here in Thailand on my DM500 and DM7020 on a move dish and on a multiswitch system (8 dishes) so when we are on long trips either in country or flying around the region, the family can see TV from home when we are in a wifi hotspot. For instance, it is great to be able to watch Thai TV when we visit New Zealand or Australia and to keep up with events at home. For Airlines that offer on board internet, this is better than the in-flight movies and no need for a Hava or Slingbox.
Parents this is a great tool to (1) Keep the kids amused for hours and stop the back seat wars (2) for me to watch the F1 racing no matter where I am with my notebook and a wifi hotspot. (3) For the others in the family to watch the daily news from various sources//
