A client of mine has a digital TV broadcast center that distributes TV channels to multiple rooms. This broadcast center can also distribute up to 10 UDP multicast streams.
Right now I've set up a laptop with VLC to stream a given playlist of MP4 files to the broadcast center over ethernet. It works OK, but to add or remove a video from the playlist we have to stop broadcasting and go through the setup process again. This involves setting IP address and port number and isn't for non-technical users.
What I really want is a nice UI that people without technical knowledge can use to add and remove video's to the playlist. Do you guys know any software that does this? Preferably free and Linux-based with a web interface.
