Did you know that you can use Media Player (or any standards-compliant player, like VLC Player or Quicktime) to play the RTP audio streams generated by your Livewire network? Think of the possibilities around your plant: any computer with a set of speakers instantly becomes a listening station for any audio channel your plant is generating. All you have to do is generate a standard SDP file so your player knows what stream to load and play.
To do this, you'll need the following:
- Axia DirectShow filters and SDP generator, online here.
- The tech note, entitled "Playing Livewire Streams in Media Players Using SDP FIles."
Just follow the instructions in the tech note and you'll be streaming Axia channels on your PCs faster than you can say "Session Description Protocol."
