is the latest version of StreamerOne and where can
The latest version of StreamerOne is always
available in the official site of the application
At this time the latest StreamerOne available version
is Beta 0.4.5.2
Which are the main characteristics of this version
with respect to the previous one?
A new control has been
set to avoid multiple sessions for the application.
It has been eliminated the mechanism based
on the file streamerone.lock for inhibiting the
start of a second application when StreamerOne
is not shut down using the Exit button.
Now it is possible to close the application also
from command X of the Windows window of
the application. In this case the application
does not stop to operate but conserve its state
of activity for one eventual successive reopening.
For the complete closing of the application the
Exit button is always present. In alternative
the closing can be forced within the Task Manager
eliminating the 2 StreamerOne.exe processes that
are present when StreamerOne is active.
The user can configure
TCP ports for the application
The version Beta 0.3 uses default TCP ports ranging
from 10000 to 11000 (limit values included). The
user can modify these values changing the configuration
set in the config.ini file in the StreamerOne
installation folder. Needed ports are 2 at least.
The possibility to set TCP ports is especially
useful when a firewall is present in the LAN:
in this case the user must open the same
TCP StreamerOne ports in the firewall. UNMATCHED
CONFIGURATION BETWEEN CONFIG.INI AND FIREWALL
WILL TAKE THE USER IN A LOW PRIORITY LIST WITH
A POOR VISION OF VIDEO.
The user can configure
a preferred player path
In the config.ini file it is now
possible to define the path for the preferred
video player. The default value is set to C:\Programmi\Windows
How to install StreamerOne?
- Beta 0.5.4.2 version
StreamerOne is released with a .zip file that has
to be unzipped. The operation generates a setup .exe
file that must be launch. Following the installation
instructions the result is a desktop icon linked to
the StreamerOne.exe file
Does StreamerOne contain spyware, worm or other
software that could damage the PC or hack the privacy?
Is the use of StreamerOne legal?
Definetely YES. The Peer To Peer (P2P) technology
is used by StreamerOne in order to deliver video originating
from a source which is known and having the rights
to distribute contents over Internet.
StreamerOne operating instructions
After having double clicked the StreamerOne
icon on the desktop, a web page appears showing the
list of available channels. The user can select the
channel of interest clickinh on its name. The selected
channel name will appear above the black player area
with % of buffering that shortly afterwards begins
to grow from the value of zero towards 100%. When
the percentage catches up 80% the video player starts
automatically. At the beginning the video and the
audio can proceed in jerks but after a while the stream
will be smooth.
In order to exit from the channel, without closing
the program, use the Quit button.
It is possible to pass from a channel to an other
in the list clicking on the new channel while this
is still in execution.
In order to exit StreamerOne use the Exit button.
In case you terminate the application without using
the Exit key, the application will remain in execution
The Play button can be used to open
the player again after that it had been closed without
having closed StreamerOne.
Which Player can I use to visualize the channels
There are several players which can be used:
Windows Media Player 9 or greater, VLC, Media Player
.All these players can be downloaded from the web
sites of relevant producers.
Shall I have a particular connection to Internet
for using StreamerOne?
In order to use StreamerOne you must enter
Internet trhough an ADSL connection at least. It is
not sufficient to use a modem 56K. Moreover the real
ADSL upload speed must be 180 kbps at least. Measure
your real internet speed free tools that can be found
in Internet. As an example here
If your upload speed in less than 180 kbps you could
have troubles in viewing the video. Your real internet
speeds depends on many factors but first of them is
service quality offered by your provider.
When StreamerOne starts I can see only "Connection
in progress. Please wait..." and the channel list
does not appear. What does it mean?
In this case some protection of your PC is
blocking StreamerOne. Check the firewall or the operating
to enable the execution of StreamerOne.exe
I use a firewall. Are there any limitation?
The default configuration for StreamerOne beta0.3
uses TCP ports ranging between 10000 and 11000. In
the config.ini file the user can configure
another TCP port range among those free until the
65535. It is recommended not to use those smaller
than 1024 as they are used by the main applications
in the PC. At present it is possible to define only
one range made up of 2 consecutive values. The same
ports will have to be opened in OUPUT in the firewall
of your LAN
ATTENTION: those users who behind
a firewall will not open the ports to communicate
with other peers will be part of a group running at
low priority with consequent worsening of the video
quality. It is therefore strongly recommended to set
up the firewall properly.
who use a proxy server
The proxy could give some troubles in forwarding
user requests. Usually the proxy is set up with only
few ports (port 80 for HTTP etc..).
When StreamerOne opens it contacts the system server
on port 8000. If not properly configured the proxy
can cancel the request. The proxy must be configured
to manage requests on ports between 6000 and 8000
I use a router. Are there limitations?
In this case it is necessary "to map" PC private
IP addresses with public IP addresses assigned by
the provider to the user
Despite all the above suggestions I have not resolved
my problems. What to do?
