EUNICE 2004 multicast information

Testers welcome: If you have time to test the streams please let us know of your results by mail to noc at atm.tut.fi. The streams are now active. Thanks!

All sessions from EUNICE 2004 are multicast over the Internet. The sessions will be sent using two audio and video streams. The first stream carries the video and audio of the speaker. The second stream carries the speaker slides and possibly the same audio as the first stream. The video format is MPEG1 and audio is MPEG1 layer II, sometimes abbreviated as mp2. The streams are also saved for later viewing.

Before the conference starts and when the sessions are not going on, the multicast servers send public domain films from the Prelinger Archives. See the bottom of the page for the list of featured films.

The movie streams are currently active.

Recommended Players

The University of Oregon videolab project has a list of applications for different operating systems. Not listed on the page is the VLC media player that works on multiple operating systems (Win, Mac, Unix) and can use the SDP files as the program information source. If you plan to try IPv6 multicast, please see mpeg4ip. We have successfully used Cisco IP/TV in Windows, MacTV in Macintosh and VLC media player in Linux.
