A player can act as a Media Streamer, streaming video to another BrightSign player or compatible network device. XT, XD, and 4K players can also act as true Media Servers, which wait for requests from clients and then stream the requested content. The Media Streamer is a unicast feature, while the Media Server is a multicast feature.
- Supported streaming protocols: UDP, RTP, RTSP, and HLS streaming
- Supported streaming codecs: MPEG-TS (MPEG-2 or H.264 Transport Streams)
Media Server Plugin
Media server features are currently not available via BrightAuthor, but you can still set up a streamer/server using the Media Server plugin.
Streaming with BrightScript
See the Media Server Developer's Guide to learn more about creating a Media Streamer or Media Server script.
