RTP Transmitter sample
Sample is based on TunaIPTransmitter component, which does the following:
There are several different streaming modes, all specified by the URI property.
RAW/RTP UDP Unicast streaming
In this mode target (destination) address and port is specified in URI, so any receiver which is able to bind to the target address:port will receive data.
Receivers must bind to 192.168.0.170 at port 1234. RTCP will use port 1235.
RAW/RTP UDP One-to-many streaming
In this mode 0.0.0.0 is specified as host address in URI, and port number specifies the port to "listen" for incoming requests.
Receivers must send requests to transmitter host at port 1234. RTCP will use port 1235.
NOTE for RAW streaming: this mode is NOT recommended, as there is no way to timeout dead receivers.
RAW/RTP UDP Multicast streaming
In this mode URI specifies multicast group address and port number to be used for streaming.
Receivers join multicast group 126.96.36.199 and wait for data at port 1234. RTCP will use port 1235.
Icecast/SHOUTCast TCP streaming
In addition to UDP sockets, it is also possible to stream over TCP using SHOUTCast protocol. You should be running Icecast/DNAS server somewhere.
Where 192.168.0.174 is host running Icecast/DNAS server at port 9000, "source" is client name and "hackme" is the password. "stream_name" specifies desired stream name.
Receiver should connect to Icecast/DNAS server using same host address, port number and stream name:
Use SDP property to specify how audio should be encoded before transmitting. Or set
Some SDP examples shows how to use it. In addition you can specify TTL for multicast streaming and bitrate for some codecs, as showm below:
v=0 m=audio 5004 RTP/AVP 14 a=rtpmap:14 mpa/44100/2 c=IN IP4 /2 a=fmtp:14; bitrate=256
Here 14 is pre-defined payload number for MPEG audio, "c=IN IP4 /2" specifies IP4 addressing and TTL=2, and bitrate is set to 256 kbps.
List of supported payloads, defined in RFC 3551:
In addition, IPTransmitter is aware of the following dynamic payload numbers:
Streaming MPEG files
To stream a file with MPEG audio, you can use WaveRiff component, with
In this case MPEG frames are read directly from the file and no extreanal encoder is used.
Precompiled binary of this sample is included in the Demos package.
