    Dreambox ReStream

    Dreambox ReStream 2.0 a

    A complete new rewritten version of Dreambox ReStream is available. It is still an alpha version, but it should be pretty stable.This version has a different code base, and has a different look. This version also supports streaming of your movies on disk like it were Dreambox recordings.The iPhone support is still a bit buggy, but you should get a nice page when you use your iPhone / Blackberry on ReStream 2.0

    09-12-2010 (v 2.0 alpha):
    It took some time to make a new version of ReStream. It is stil in alpha version, but pretty stable doh. So you can download it right now.
    There is an install.html file to help you install the software. Open that file in your browser, fill in all the questions and it should provide a nice manual for installing. There could be some issues on a Windows server.
    Thanks TheYOSH

    History to first release:
    Some new features are:
    Finally, here it is after a year of nu updates. Dreambox Restream 1.4.3!!!

    Some new features are:
    * Added authorization, so you can put Dreambox Restream in 'private' modus. So you can watch a movie without being interupted by other viewers.
    * Added a tooltip on the program guide. So hover over the program title to get a small summary from that program.
    * Added the latest

    Longtail video player

    This version took so long time because I was bussy with work and social live. So I had not much spare time to work in this software. And also I was waiting for the final Wowza Media Server 2 version. It is now needed for Dreambox Restream. The good thing it is free for personal use.

    Here are the instructions

    Setting it all up

    Now we got all parts, we can set it up.

    Server part:
    Install VLC according the installation instructions. On a Debian based system you can use apt-get install vlc. It will everything what is needed to run VLC. On a windows system you should be double clicking the file and follow the instructions. Just remember where you installed it or that you are able to find the VLC executable file.

    Also you need to install Wowza Media Server.
    This is a free (personal use) flash (and more) streaming server Download.
    Downloadthe software and ask for a free 10 connections license.
    Unfortunally you cannot use it for iPhone streaming. That is limited in the free version.

    The xajax framework is now included in the Dreambox Restream software package.

    Unzip the DreamboxRestream software somewhere in your webroot where you are able to reach with you web client.
    After unzipping you have to set some settings in the file Settings.class.php. All settings are documentated in the settings file.

    Finally copy the files in the folder wowza to your Wowza media installation. Change the url in the file This has to be the same value as the variable '$vlcWanIP'. After that, restart your wowza server.

    Thx TheYOSH


    Here you can download the PHP code for the server part. This code is based on PHP5 and object oriented. So you need at lease PHP 5 installed on your webserver. Got reports of working systems on both Windows and Linux. Get your version right now (06-07-2010)

    02-07-2010 (v1.4.3):
    After a year a new update. The code had some changes and it is now integrated with Wowza Media Server 2. No changelog available

    TheYOSH's picture

    After a few months of debugging and feedback we have now reached Beta 1 of Dreambox ReStream. I want to thank a lot of people for the feedback. It helped a lot to make the software more robust. And to support more different type of images on the Dreambox.

    A short list of the much fixes and new features:

    * Better enigma web interface parsing. Fixes a lot of issues on Enigma1 systems
    * Added setting for Enigma web interface port. Make it more flexibel
    * New installation wizard. Hopefully is this one beter than the first version. Feedback is appreciated
    * Full Wowza Media Server 2 support. With a valid license of Wowza Media Server 2 you will have live iPhone streaming. (and soon Smooth Streaming)
    * Multi bit rate support. You can now create up to three streams with different bit rate. Can go up to 4Mbps. (needs a lot of CPU power Sticking out tongue )
    * Better support for mobile phones. Should work on Blackberrys and Android phones. (Mobile interface can be a bit slow...)

    Download the latest version. Unpack it in your web server web root. Open the installation wizard at install/index.html. It will guide you through the setup process.

    The main difference with the previous alpha versions is that Wowza Media Server 2 is pulling the stream from VLC and will have a different setup than in the alpha versions. So make sure that you have Wowza Media Server 2 setup correctly!
    Thanks TheYOSH
