DVBDream 3.4 and latest VLC 3 not working

Postby cmorethenutoday » Sat Feb 17, 2018 9:36 pm

There is an issue with the latest VLC version 3 and DVB Dream

When you select VLC within DVBDream you now get no picture.

yea, it looks like they have probably broken or changed something in VLC. (I'm still testing to see if it is URL format or something)

For now, you can use MPC as an alternative to VLC. (just specify MPC executable path in DVB Dream ->Preferences->LAN Streaming->Integration)

Hi Rel,

I think it could be something to do with this - https://forum.videolan.org/viewtopic.php?t=143484

Maximum UDP packet size needs to be 1316, looking at wireshark on packets from DVBDream they are bigger.

Thanks for the information, I'll test it and hopefully fix it.

Hi Rel,

Still having a problem getting this working on 3.6. Perhaps its because I've changed my VLC command parameters though, if port is 1234 should it just be "udp://@" ?

Also what version of VLC have you tested with, and is it the x64 or x86 version?

Thanks

Yes
or try udp://@:1234


if you still cant get it to work, try to return to default settings (Main menu -> File -> Factory settings)
