Stream Live Video from PC to WD Live?   

Postby Xplorer4x4 » Fri Jul 20, 2012 11:24 am

I have an older model WD Live, and trying to see if there is a simple way to get a live stream off of a web site(say Fox News) and make it play on my TV through the WD Live? I have tried some of the UMSP plug ins that can be installed from the web ui, but they only play clips from say CNN, not a live stream. I have tried streaming through "Live TV UMSP Plug In" but it says "Unable to play the selected file. Please refer to user manual for a list of supported file types."

Firmware info:
FW Base: 1.02.21
Current version: 0.5.1.1

Thanks for the tip! As some one who rarely follows these forums, you may want to point out you are referring to an app. The context, to me atleast, made it sound as if you were referring to a user here. I should probably mention I am running Kubuntu12.04 Precise but found a post from KAD for an older Ubuntu distro that should be useful.

If you had tried to type in "serviio" into google search this would have been the first result:
