The NetSendGUI utility is used for transmission of an MPEG transport stream file (*.ts) into an RTP/UDP stream.

Run the NetSendGUI support component 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 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 a *.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. When no file is transmitted into a stream, the "Idle" status is indicated:

idle_stream_status

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 trasmission can be edited through creating a BAT file.

copy_command_to_clipboaard

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 NetSendGUI utility required.

Note
This functionality requires storing both the NetPlayGUI.exe and *.bat files in the same location.

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.
