Is there a user forum for eLecture?
Can I install eLecture Server on the same computer where I already
run Unreal Media and/or Archival Server?
Yes, you can. The installation of eLecture Server checks if Unreal Media and
Archival servers are present on your system; if not then they will be installed
together with eLecture Server.
Can my lecture have some web-based users that participate using
WebELecture and others participating with eLecture Console at the same time?
Yes, of course. Web-based users view video with Flash Player, therefore, you
must select H264 and AAC encoding at the Live Server side or in your RTSP encoder configuration.
Can I watch eLecture on my iPad and other iOS devices?
Yes, using Photon browser app that supports Flash video. Make sure you switch to streaming session before you login to eLecture.
What TCP ports do I need to open in my organization firewall in order to serve lectures to outside
eLecture Console users?
TCP port 8432 for eLecture server and 5119/5130 for Media Server which streams live video feeds. These port numbers can be changed with configuration programs.
When I add RTSP or RTMP video feed, there is no way to specify username/password?
Open up Media Server Configuration program; you should see live broadcasts configured for eLecture.
Locate your RTSP or RTMP live broadcast and edit it; add any advanced settings you need.
When I add a dynamic live broadcast, how do I connect my remote Live Server to Media Server?
After adding a dynamic live broadcast, you can see its alias (starting with "electure_") and password in a description column of live feeds list.
Connect your remote Live Server with these parameters.
When I add an RTMP video feed, how do I connect my FMLE or Wirecast to Media Server?
After adding RTMP video feed, you can see its alias (starting with "electure_") in a description column of live feeds list.
Connect your Flash encoder using this alias, as described in our FAQ for Unreal Media Server.
How do I add new languages to eLecture Console and eLecture Administration
Locate files named "lang.lang" and "serverlang.lang" in the appropriate
installation folders. Open these files in Notepad program. Add new language
blocks or change existing ones. Save files as Unicode.
After I change the default path for archiving video feeds, my
previously configured lectures don't show any archived feeds in the "Lectures
The new setting will apply only to new lectures and new streaming feeds added
to existing lectures. To apply it to previously configured lectures, simply
re-add any streaming feed to lecture configuration.
I need to run advanced queries on the eLecture SQL Server database. I also
need to protect the database from unauthorized use.
Install free Microsoft Management Studio for your version of SQL Server
and run any queries on eLecture database. Do not change the database as this
can break eLecture functionality. Furthermore, you can disable remote
connections to eLecture database to make sure it's protected from unauthorized
