UMs with internal authentication and non windows clients

Postby wagnbeu0 » Sun Feb 11, 2018 1:18 pm

Hi, we are using the free version of Unreal Media Server. We have set up 1 live stream with about 20 different accounts, and know about the limitation with 10 current users.

All our clients must use the unreal media player. Now we have the request to aloow IOS and Android Users as well. We cannot switch back from internal authentication to anything else. It is also not possible to create just one account and to give them to everyone.
How can I use Ipads and android Tablets?
I have already installed mplayer, but the connection ums://username:password@tcp:servername:port/stream does not work.
On my windows client I use this string to connect:
ums://tcp:servername:port/stream

I am asked for username for the first time, and can seve it in the client software.

Does anyone know how to use this on non-windows devices, too?

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

Yes, mplayer should support ums-tcp and internal authentication. So open mplayer and use the same link:
ums://tcp:servername:port/stream
The content encoding must be H.264/AVC1 for video and AAC/MP3 for audio.

So mplayer should prompt you to enter username/password, just like Windows player does.

Can you tell me which mplayer you were using for your internal tests? Not that I downloaded a different one ...

Hello again, sorry for delayed answer;

We can confirm that it's broken in the current mPlayer for iOS and we are working to fix it;

you can also use Live Player app:
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/live-pl ... ?ls=1&mt=8

and it works there.

Cool it also worked for me. Can you recommend any player for Android Devices as well? Then we would be very happy to have a player for everything.

The mPlayer developers just confirmed the issue with mPlayer (they were on a lunar New Year holiday, that's the reason for delay);
they say the issue will be fixed in about a week; look for next versions of mPlayer on both iOS and Android.
