Cinegy provides the following network utilities:

The Cinegy Network Utilities can be downloaded from both Cinegy User Portal and Cinegy Partner Portal. To start using the utilities you should unzip the downloaded package to any folder on a local drive.

Cinegy Stream Capturer

This tool is used for converting the RTP/UDP stream into the MPEG transport stream file (*.ts).

Run the NetCaptureGui.exe file to launch the Cinegy Stream Capturer utility:

Cinegy_Stream_Capturer

Use the drop-down list to select the stream type – RTP or UDP and specify the IP address of the stream to be converted.

Select the "Split Recorded File into Chunks" option to enable splitting the file being recorded into equal segments with the specified duration using the drop-down list.

Select the "Apply an out file name prefix of" option to use the field entry as a prefix for the received *.ts file name.

Use the "…​" button and browse for the output folder to be used for storing the files recorded from RTP/UDP streams.

record_button

Pressing the "Record" button starts the conversion process.

The NetCapture.exe utility is automatically launched allowing user to monitor the file size while converting is in progress:

capturing_in_progress

Press any key to stop recording; the received file is stored in the defined output directory.

Cinegy Stream Multicaster

This utility is used for transmission of the MPEG transport stream file (*.ts) into the RTP/UDP stream.

Run the NetSendGui.exe file to launch the Cinegy Stream Multicaster utility:

Cinegy_Stream_Multicast

In the "Source transport stream file" field specify the file to be converted into an RTP/UDP stream using the "…​" button or via the keyboard.

Use the drop-down list to select the stream type – RTP or UDP and specify the IP address to be used for transmission of the stream being converted from the *.ts file.

Use the corresponding drop-down list to define the adapter IP address for multicast output. All available IP addresses for the given machine are listed automatically.

stream_button

Press the "Stream" button to start file transmission into the defined RTP/UDP stream.

The stream status is indicated at the bottom of the window:

idle_stream_status

active_stream_status

While no file is transmitted

During file transmission

When no file is transmitted into a stream, the "Idle" status is indicated.

During file transmission, the "Stream Status" section displays the following information:

  • second of the clip from which file transmission will start;

  • data transfer rate in Mbit per second.

This information is read-only in the Cinegy Stream Multicaster utility. However, the start point of the file transmission can be edited through creating a BAT file.

copy_command_to_clipboard

Press this button to copy the command to clipboard.

Use any text editor (e.g. Notepad) to paste the command and save the file with the *.bat extension. This file can further be used for transmission of the given file into a stream with no Cinegy Stream Multicaster utility required.

To alter the start point of the file transmission, the following text should be added to the pasted string:

-b hh:mm:ss

For example, if the file transmission needs to be started from the fifth minute, the text added to the string shall look as follows:

transmission_start_from

Save the changes and run the file to start transmission. The following window appears:

stream_cmd

Here the start time value is displayed in seconds.

Stop_this_stream

Use the "Stop This Stream" button in the Cinegy Stream Multicaster window to stop the current stream transmission.

Stop_all_streams

If several instances of the utility are launched to transmit multiple streams individually, press the "Stop All Streams" button to stop them all simultaneously.
