    Hi All,

    I am using Windows Media Player Version 11.0.5721.5268 and VLC version 1.0.3

    I am trying to stream video over UDP between two media players, the
    transmitter is VLC and the receiver is Windows Media Player.

    To roll out networking problem I have installed VLC and Windows Media Player
    on the same IP host and I use or the IP address assigned to the
    computer from my DHCP server.

    Please send free to send your reply as well to ramig-at-comsysmobile-dot-com

    I manage to do so when the receiver is VLC as well -- so there is no
    networking or firewall issue.

    My question is: what is the address required to typed in "open URL" to set
    Windows Media Player to "listen" on UDP port?

    In CorePlayer [Windows Mobile, but the same concept] the command is
    "udp://@:1234" for UDP port 1234.

    Thanks in advance

    Dear Neil,

    Thanks for the time and effort, however it seems the proposed combination
    does not work [nevertheless I never role out the possibility I did not set
    things right]

    I'm fully aware to the points you have raised regarding the propriety nature
    of using UDP for video streaming and CorePlayer port assignment

    I looked again into Windows Media Player and I'm puzzled -- is it possible
    that there is no option to stream video "VLC style" to other Windows Media
    Player over the network?

    Is there any other video streamer which stream video can stream video to
    Windows Media Player over the network? [again -- it seems that VLC does not

    Thanks in advance
