Have a look at the last page, under "Network Protocol Support."
i guess i was right thanks for the proof
hey darcilicious no response you were always quick to reply :P
darci gave you a link to file format support when you're talking about network protocol support.
she was only trying to help, and obviously doesnt have anything to add so doesnt need to comment here.
i dont know if you've noticed, but they've also got a few issues with some of the more used protocols also (SMB noticeably) so other protocols may be further down the support list.
Boxee Box > HDMI > HDTV
2 x HTPC (boxee 0.9) > HDMI > HDTV
2 x 8TB NAS
I have just used the support service, and asked if rtmp will be supported, and the very quick response said the following
"Unfortunately there are no plans to support RTMP on the Boxee Box."
So all them streams are just pipe dreams
That really sucks man
any updates on this issue?
dont see what could be more important.
RTMP is a proprietary protocol for Flash. All support for the CE4100 has pretty much ceased, including any updates to Flash. Boxee can't do anything about this, so whining to them will solve nothing. The only way to fix it is to release new hardware.
Even if Intel were providing updates, RTMP and Flash are in a death spiral. At NAB this year, all the big players were trumpeting HTML5 and HLS for OTT delivery. This is where the market is going. The answer is not to get Boxee to support RTMP/Flash, but to get your preferred content provider to support HLS.
Keep in mind, this is from the perspective of a content provider. To understand what Boxee is possibly thinking on the matter, you have to understand that they're chasing content and are going to focus efforts on how to follow what content providers are doing.
Careful when you say "I think you ALL..." that's a loaded statement and suggests people don't know what they are talking about.
Fact of the matter is here is what is up?
Boxee actually does support rtmp, but they technically do not support implementation of rtmp.
Pretty much, any file you can run through their player that will play is technically supported... meaning it works. What it is not, is it is not supported by Team Boxee as they claim it is not a officially supported protocol on their platform.
Sometimes I think people need to realize there is alot of slight of tongue that gets misinterpreted by folks and that causes alot of confusion.
Currently, Navi-X is pulling streams from ABC.com, NBC.com, and CBS.com without issue. They use an RTMP scheme on their setups for video delivery. When our "processors" or URL resolvers introduce the final URL output to the player, the videos play. It doesn't pause or stop instantly when using it, but it does a few seconds later without issue. It is technically working in Navi-X, hence Boxee.
The fact is Live Stream rtmp line never even worked in Navi-X on Boxee in 1.1, 1.2 or 1.5. So people cannot add full rtmp link to a playlist and get it to play in Navi-X. Furthermore, people aren't familiar with how to extract GET/POST results from a port sniffer on their computer... it's not as easy as it looks even when you look at it.
Team Boxee gets to decide what they are willing to support and go forward with at anytime and I think it's safe to say the company has chosen to not only distance itself from it's loyal customers, but to run the boxee agenda their own way and not have us dictate what they do anymore. It's doesn't make me or many of us happy but it's their choice.
This is one of the reasons why they aren't responsive to us anymore. Secondly, I would think they feel a bit "jaded" about some of the off beat comments people have made about their app and choices they made going forward with their decisions. I know they are not communicating nearly as much to it's user base anymore and while people have said that's no indication of boxee's intent, it does mark a recession in public communications... regardless of how you interpret it, something is better than nothing.
I think every should relax about it though and not call it a "loss", but a recognition that either Boxee is going to cater to it's customers or not and eventually, it will have an impact on the bottom line for everyone. I personally won't waste anymore of my time though trying to get these folks to do something they're not going to do, little less mess with the hopeless jira system. If others wish to do that, that's their choice... but I made mine... nothing personal to anybody at Team Boxee but it does seem all hopeless when you see the lack of support and consideration for your customers wishes.
I still love my boxee box though so I can't complain.
