More exciting live streaming from Flumotion with vp8 and webm

So a test pattern is pretty boring and a screenshot of it in even more boring. I have now setup a test stream which is streaming a TV channel from the Astra 28.2 satellite with DVB. So here it is, try it in your WebM enabled browser. That means Opera beta or Firefox Developer Preview and not Chrome/Chromium because of a bug in their implementation.

    Good work and works great in epiphany too :)

    great work! now it works in the webm firefox but not smooth enough, so pre-fetch and cache might need for the browser’s player.

    yes, the low (or non-adaptive) amount of buffering in Firefox is noticable on this kind of bitrate.

    Works here in 10.60 on Debian Unstable i386 with just installed libvpx and gstreamer (from Debian repository). This is so nice.

    Live streaming is great and it is only going to become more popular over the next few years! I really hope you managed to overcome the Chrome issues.
