View Full Version : Broadcasting - MPG/AVI/Others...
13th January 2006, 15:42
I realize that to broadcast ANY movie file with SHOUTcast it has to be converted to NSV. My question is how? And once the video IS done and converted, what do I use to broadcast it?
Doing live stuff is easy. I can do anything live via TV card, but MPG/AVI and other movie downloads and such are a mystery to me...

Using the NSVTools from www.nullsoft.com/nsv and assuming your OS is Windows:
nsvenc is used for encoding files to NSV. nsvenc /config will give you a similar popup window to that of NSVCap's configuration.
nsvscsrc can be used to broadcast to a ShoutCAST server. This program's parameters are found in the sticky threads somewhere.

Command line encoding
Command line streaming

Ok. How would someone who is kind of really rusty on command prompt?
Running Windows XP Pro
NSVTools is just used for broadcast live is it not?

You can use the NSV gui to easily convert the video to NSV.
You can use the command prompt to source the movies to a Shoutcast / Icecast server.

There is a graphical interface "NSVate" which is a "Front end" for the nsv encoder.

And as for streaming you may want to use Kens software as it doesn't use the command line at all. You can get NSVGUI+ or NSVGUI Classic at http://nsv.no-ip.com/

I downloaded NNVGUI+. How does it work? I go to click on SHOUTcast and it won't let me click anything... Also, when I go to File_New, it's looking for an .xml session file... What does this file consist of adn what do I have to do to get it to work?

With NSVGUI+ you need to CREATE a new session, which is saved as an XML file. You do this by selecting NEW SESSION (or is it FILE > NEW SESSION I forget now).
Anyhow, once you have PROPERLY configured your SHOUTcast server (assuming it's not remotely hosted someplace where you don't have that kind of control) and enter your station name, genre and so forth (make sure the PUBLIC box is CHECKED if you want to be listed in the Winamp Media Library), you then need to load your videos.
Loading your videos can be a tedious and frustrating process if you have tons of videos like me as you have to load them ONE AT A TIME (I wish you'd include a BATCH loading system in your GUIs Ken, but that's a tangent for another thread :D ).
Once you've done that, then all you need to do is click the START BROADCAST button and YOU ARE ON THE AIR. :)
Hope this helps :)
Cheers for now :)

DUHH!!! Stupid me didn't see that it was a SAVE button and not and OPEN button when you hit New...srry bout that going to try it now...lol
16th January 2006, 15:48
OK! I'm getting there. I understand how NSVGUI+ works, and by the looks of it it is working. Except for one thing. When I hit Start Stream, SHOUTcast picks it up and adds the stream, but NSVGUI+ freezes after that... If there some kind of other config I have to do with the program itself or some kind of other fix?
thanks again for the help

What do you mean when you say it "freezes"? Do you mean you can't minimize it 'cause it's not responsive or what?
Cheers for now :)
17th January 2006, 02:08
Right, can't minimize, can't click, and eventually comes up 'Not Responding'

The encoder can be picky about the input format, but usually crashes and lockups are from misconfigured encoder settings. Often that's lame (the mp3 encoder).....
Make sure the bitrate for audio is a multiple of 32... to start....
17th January 2006, 11:59
Bitrate is set to 128... And I'm not finding anything resembling any encoder settings

rockouthippie, he is having problems with NSVGUI+ and not the NSV encoder. Perhaps you should try nsvgui classic as it uses the same technology but different gui setup, perhaps that one will work. I don't know why NSVGUI+ isnt working...
20th January 2006, 15:48
all right ill try classic tonight after work...thanks for the help:up:

>via my shoutcast thru my winamp
nope, winamp only for watching, you cant stream with winamp
>I'm not stupid
so take a look www.scvi.net should be pretty easy
27th January 2006, 19:05
OKAY ...so maybe I am stupid then ..because I have been to thoses sites and downloaded what I thought I was supossed too but I have got NO further then when I started ..I guess I need to be told like a child ..step by step...any suggestions please ??? All I want to do is be able to broadcast videos etc. to my listeners..
28th January 2006, 14:12
OKAY.. i wasn't trying to say u r stupid.. (english is my 2nd foreign language)
just follow http://www.scvi.net/check.htm
although that site is lame as packs unrelated information too... if you find words like "dirac" or "theora" dont take them in mind they have nothing to do with nsv

When you upgrade, you keep all the settings, plugins and any media files you have downloaded.
