ConnectedVNC in use

The ConnectedVNC plug-in for DivX Connected now includes ConCast, so you can hear your PC too!

By installing a SHOUTcast or Icecast server alongside DivX Connected, you can now listen to your PC while using it remotely on your TV, enabling you to enjoy applications like Spotify and iTunes from the comfort of your sofa!

Existing users will need to download the latest plug-in to upgrade.

For more information about streaming audio from your PC to your set-top box, please refer to the the ConCast plug-in page.

Please note: audio is optional and some users may experience a 1-2 second audio lag.

ConCast plug-in for DivX Connected

What is it?

ConCast is a SHOUTcast, Icecast and Podcast player for DivX Connected, capable of playing most AAC and MP3 streams.

Originally an experiment in adding audio to ConnectedVNC, the ConCast plug-in is primarily designed to enable users to stream sound from their PC to their set-top box using one of the many free SHOUTcast/Icecast servers, for example if you want to listen to Spotify or iTunes on your TV.

To stream audio from your PC

One of the easiest ways to listen to audio from your PC using ConCast is to set your default recording device to Stereo Mix, which you’ll need to enable if you’re using Windows 7 or Vista, and install edcast (to encode the sound) and Icecast2 (to broadcast it).

There are plenty of online tutorials showing how to setup edcast and Icecast2, and more ConCast specific information will be posted here soon.
