RTMP streaming

Question

can webOS 3.0 play a stream from network URL?

 

would typing rtmp://ipaddress/stream in the URL bar of webOS work as a player?

 

i've setup a streaming software on a computer and viewed the output with VLC media player and I'm wondering if LG webOS can display the same output

 

EDIT: if webOS 3.0 can't play the livestream, are they any alternatives?

LG WebOS doesn't play RTMP links, but you can use a little trick for this:

 

In the RTMP link, replace the RTMP:// to HTTP:// and put /playlist.m3u8 on the end of link

 

Ex: rtmp://ipaddress/stream is replaced by http://ipaddress/stream/playlist.m3u8

 

This convert the RTMP stream to HLS stream

 

I don't know if all RTMP works.

      I got a new C7 but no Direct TV Now App.  It been a whole year since the launch and is a major channel app  for Smart TV like Web OS to release.  Why does LG want to force their owners to use a third party streaming box like Apple TV, Amazon Fire or Roku?  "LG should go big or go home!" meaning LG's Web OS should have all the main apps in their inventory and not have their customers to go outside LG to buy another third party streaming device in order to be complete their viewing interests.

      👀 🤓Remember those frustrating times when you were watching a video or a movie online and all of the sudden you experienced a loss of quality? Now it can be possible to stream high-quality videos in congested network environments in a faster and virtuous way. Conceived to boost video streaming, High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), or H.265, is a video compression standard designed to substantially improve coding efficiency when compared to its precedent, the Advanced Video Coding (AVC), or H.264. With an increasing growth of video streaming on the Internet over popular websites such as Netflix and YouTube, and with 4K cameras gaining new ground in the market, a considerable amount of storage and bandwidth is required. HEVC promises a 50% storage reduction as its algorithm uses efficient coding by encoding video at the lowest possible bit rate while maintaining a high image quality level. !!! 😃😃😃
