XBMC is capable of playing multicast video. It is a simple set-up.
- Create a text file called
Stream.strmon your XBMC client with this line
- On your server start the multicast with this command
cvlc --sout udp:220.127.116.11 /mnt/disk0/mythtv/pretty/Fringe_2013-01-11_9-00_PM_The_Boy_Must_Live.mpg
- On your XBMC client go to Videos, Files, Add Videos, Browse and select the text file you created in step 1.
With this set-up you could watch a video on multiple XBMC clients in your home or business.
