Players for viewing the Campus Streams
To view live video streams OR video-on-demand, we would need to use the Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP) instead of HTTP. The URL for the stream source is constructed using the keyword rtsp instead of http. VLC and Quicktime are players that work on MS Windows and support RTSP.
VLC is available on Linux as well. If you have done a full package install
of your Linux distribution, chances are that you already have it installed.
Look under Sound and Video section of your menu. An alternative is to use the
TOTEM movie player that my be installed, by default, on a desktop install.
However, we recommend you use VLC.
