The Vivoh Multicast System includes server, encoder, and player software.
Our server allows you to share one link to your users which will start the encoder and send users to the Vivoh Multicast Player or will redirect the user to a non-multicast fallback source, for example Zoom. Our encoder adds Forward Error Correction (FEC) to mitigate packet loss on WiFi networks. Yes, you can multicast on Wifi but only with FEC. Otherwise the video probably won't look very good due to packet loss.
However, if you want to simply see live video in our player on your Windows or MacOS laptop, please follow these steps:
2. Download a sample video file by right-clicking and saving this file.
3. Download and install the Vivoh Multicast Player for Windows or the Vivoh Multicast Player for OSX.
4. Start FFmpeg with this command: ffmpeg -re -i adena.webm -strict 2 -vcodec copy -an -f rtp rtp://188.8.131.52:5000 -acodec copy -vn -f rtp rtp://184.108.40.206:5002
5. Click here to launch the Vivoh Multicast Player and view the FFmpeg multicast stream.
Optionally try with a Zoom skin, captioning, and Google chat messaging by clicking here or with Webex here, or Microsoft Teams here, or Google Meet here.
