Open subchannels using RF number in VLC.

Post by FoodLioon »

I would like to open a subchannel on VLC using the RF number in an URL.

Example that opens the first channel:
http://192.168.1.2:5004/tuner1/ch22

Is it possible to launch a subchannel in this manner? VLC Android doesn't have the option to page through the programs like the desktop version as far as I could tell.

On a PC open channel 22 in VLC then hit Ctrl+J to show the codec info page. Scroll down and take note of each of the stream number's "Original ID". They will look something like "Original ID:3201". You would open http://192.168.1.2:5004/tuner1/ch22:3201 to go directly to that subchannel.

Thank you!

I just grabbed the PIDs off rabbitears.info and it works.
