Presentation

mumudvb is a program that can redistribute streams from DVB on a network using multicasting. It is able to multicast a whole DVB transponder by assigning each channel to a different multicast IP.

History : mumudvb is originally a modification of dvbstream that cr@ns [1] made. We have decided to redistribute it.

Obtaining mumudvb

Mumudvb is intended to be packaged in debian. For the moment you must get the sources and compile them yourself.

You can get the sources Here

Features overview

  • Stream channels from a transponder on different multicast IPs.
  • The program can rewrite the PAT Pid in order to announce only present channels (useful for some set-top boxes)
  • Beta support for scrambled channels
  • Support for autoconfiguration : mumudvb is able to parse the ts stream to find information about the channels and stream them. So you need only the tuning parameters to stream a full transponder.
  • Automatic sending of SAP (Session Announcement Protocol) announces

Detailled feature list

  • Stream channels from a transponder on different multicast IPs
  • Can show reception level when streaming
  • Mumudvb make a list of streamed and down channels in real time (can be used to make SAP announces)
  • Can deamonize and write his own pid in a file
  • The program can kill himself if it receives no data from the card
  • The program stops trying tuning after a configurable timeout
  • Functionnal support of DVB-T
  • Always send mandatory pids. Mandatory pids are : 0, 16, 17, 18, 20
  • mumudvb automatically suscribe to all multicast groups (IGMP membership request) in order to avoid some switches to broadcast all channels.
  • The program can rewrite the PAT Pid in order to announce only present channels (useful for some set-top boxes). Note : We don't rewrite Pat Pids larger than 188 bytes
  • Beta support for scrambled channels
  • Autoconfiguration : If the PMT is given, finds audio, video and teletext PIDs. If no channels are given, find all the channels, their name and their pids.
