HTTP-Streaming with VLC, JW Player not working

Hello all.

I am streaming from a webcamera, with the help of VLC ( I have chosen to stream via http, which is something both Windows Media Player, and VLC Player can handle.

This is "proper" streaming, so there is no media-file whatsoever, just a raw stream of bytes.

Can JW Player show this, and if it can, how do I configure my webpage?

I guess all configurations go into the "flashvars"-parameter, but what exactly should I use? All my attempts have failed, this is the latest one to fail:

This isn't real streaming because VLC can't do RTMP yet.

It's the same as a simple HTTP progressive download.

So if your VLC command line looks like this:bc.. vlc "E:\Video.flv" --sout "#transcode{vcodec=FLV1,acodec=mp3,samplerate=44100}:std{access=http,dst=}"
Substitute your stream source.

Then the JW FLV Player code looks like this:bc.. 'file': '',
Substitute your IP address.

Thanks for the reply.

At the moment I am using this in VLC

bc.. "C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe" dshow:// :dshow-vdev="Logitech QuickCam S7500" :sout=#transcode{vcodec=FLV1,acodec=mp3

And this code for the JW Player

bc.. <div id="container"><a href="">Get the Flash Player</a> to see this player.</div>
<script type="text/javascript" src="swfobject.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
var s1 = new SWFObject("player.swf","ply","328","200","9","#FFFFFF");

But nothing happens, the movie never starts, and if I press the play-button, nothing happens.

This is working for me:bc.. vlc dshow://:dshow-vdev="Logitech QuickCam Pro 3000 (08B0)":dshow-adev="Logitech Microphone (Pro 3000)":dshow-size="640x480":dshow-caching="1000" --sout "#transcode{vcodec=FLV1,acodec=mp3,samplerate=44100}:duplicate{dst=display,dst=std{access=http,dst=}}"

I don't know why, but it seems to take about 60 seconds for the JW FLV Player to pickup the stream.
