Thank you for the reply. I have seen that portion
of document earlier.
Dear BigBen & Other, Pls let me clear what I'm
looking for. I'll have a user database, and VLC
player will ask, something like RADIUS, for
authentication. Again, we like to stream the video
on a Multicast IP to reduce the load. I mean, we
are planning to stream TV channels. And at
momenets, we like to stream the recorded login
ID/IP from the server end so that it can be viewed
at User end.
I hope, I have cleared my things.. :( In case not,
pls pls let me know.
