well, then i misunderstood the whole thing. i thought that the user has to make the stream ready and iptv will use it. at least thats how i understand your explaination on your website. so iptv  opens vlc to transcode the stream as soon as i tune to the stream channel and stops with transcoding as soon as i leave the stream channel?

to be honest, i did not make that many tests. i just tryed to prepare my vdr for this new streaming possibility. maybe i should focus on reading your new README ;)

anyway, i dont need rtsp support if multiple windows media streams will work on demand. i hope i got it right.
