Streming to mobilphone

Postby HiSpeed » Fri Mar 24, 2006 7:34 am

Hi;

I have a Qtek 8310 and wonder if it’s possible to stream radio/music direct to my Mobil phone (wap-version)? My cell phone doesn’t support frames. If not, can you include this function in upcoming versions? :lol:

Hi,

As you probably are aware of, there is already a wap interface (http://yourhost/subsonic/wap). However, there is no way to start streaming from that interface - only playlist management.

If you have a streaming-capable player on the phone, you might try typing the URL directly in the player (http://yourhost/subsonic/stream) and see what happens.

I am, however, planning on implementing one or both of the following:
1. Adding an option to start the stream in the wap interface.
2. Implementing a new lean html interface suitable for presentation on phones and pda's.

It will resolve the player by IP address, and play the corresponding playlist.

Mobile Streaming Via p900

Postby isaacandy » Thu Aug 31, 2006 2:30 pm

Hi, the info posted below are quite helpful, but for my case, my player only support rstp:// and i tried replacing with http://hostname/subsonic/stream, it will still add the rstp://http://hostname/subsonic/stream.

Is there anyway to resolve this issue ?

I assume you mean RTSP (Real Time Streaming Protocol). There is currently no support for RTSP in Subsonic.

What player are you using?

Mobile Streaming - Via P900

Postby isaacandy » Thu Aug 31, 2006 4:25 pm

I'm using my Sony Ericsson P900 Built-in Media Player, It is recognised SonyEricssonP900/R102 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.0 Rev/MR4 on Subsonic Player Type.

I am currently working a way to work this with Orb. It won't be the same quality, but it will let you stream. I am going to set up a static player that orb will connect to to stream the audio.

OKay, this isn't the best way to handle it, but it is a quick and dirty fix to get it to work. You will need to get and install Orb on a PC. You will then create a static player such as player10 or something. I would suggest titling it to mobile or something similar so you can remember what it is.

Once you have Orb setup, you will go into orb and tell it a customer internet channel. You will then give it the static player address such as: http://yourhost/subsonic/stream?player=10&suffix=.mp3

Once you have done that, Orb will check it and create a link for it. Then from your mobile phone you can go in and listen to that stream. Now you will still need to create a playlist on a PC or possible from the WAP interface. This will get you up and running on phones that don't have a stand along player like WM5 or Palms.

Thanks ALOT.. for getting this up and running for me..

Postby isaacandy » Wed Sep 20, 2006 7:16 am

Alright... i guess using URL and hardcoding the predefined player would definately help..

The problem i will be facing then is when i key in 'http://yourhost/subsonic/stream?player=10&suffix=.mp3' on my mobile, it'll prompt me an error 'access denied'.

And when checked on the details, it automatically replaces the 'http://' with 'rtsp://'. And it'll never be able to allow me to access the link.

I assume the only way to resolve this portion is unless i figure out a way to make my place accept 'http://'.

No, if you do as I explained above, you will be able to stream to your phone. I can access my subsonic with my SPH-a920 no problem going through Orb. As it stands right now, there is no way to do it directly into Subsonic.

Samsung I730 - Subsonic and GSPlayer

Postby adoleo » Tue Mar 27, 2007 3:21 am

I've been able to get music to stream directly from Subsonic using GSPlayer. I'm using a Windows Mobile 5 Samsung I730 phone, and I have a separate login created for the mobile device with the bitrate limited to 128kbps. I have GSPlayer set up to handle .m3u extensions, and I use the web browser to connect to the main http://yourdomain.com/subsonic site and load a playlist from there, opening the stream. I had some trouble with it before I limited the bitrate to 128kbps, but other than that it's working like a dream.

Thanks for an amazing media server!!

Neat! Thanks for sharing.

I haven't tried it myself, but maybe it's more convenient to use http://yourdomain.com/subsonic/playlist.view instead. That way you don't get all the heavy frame stuff in your phone's browser.

I guess it will work as long as the browser supports cookies, and you've selected "Remember me" in the login page.
