  1. I have tried this with Apple's Quicktime Broadcaster, available here. This software seems to support the settings you have suggested would work, yet I cannot get it to play clearly without the stutter described in my original post. There are a lot of variables that can be adjusted, with scant information about what the variables do, so it's possible I just haven't found the right set. The variables are spread around in various different places under "options" buttons and the like; not the worlds' pre-eminent design. Anyone want to try that? I tried it with Soundflower to feed the audio, I haven't yet had a chance to use a physical cable from in iPod as I didn't have the right cable handy, next time I'm physically on-site I'll try that. It has also been suggested to me that VLC might be able to do it via the command line interface, even if the GUI doesn't have the options we need. I'm not very comfortable on the Mac's command line interface (e.g., Terminal), but I'm studying these links -- anyone with more command-line chops feel free to share your results with us! http://wiki.videolan.org/Documentation:Streaming_HowTo http://wiki.videolan.org/Documentation:Streaming_HowTo/Advanced_Streaming_Using_the_Command_Line http://wiki.videolan.org/Documentation:Play_HowTo/Advanced_Use_of_VLC - David
  2. Hello here is my update for today... ...At the moment the issue seems to be that the Mac version of VLC -- both version 1 and the newly released 2.0 -- don't seem to offer WAV streaming, at least not in the UI. I'm attaching a screen shot of the relevant options in that program, which is significantly different than the Windows version. I will try tomorrow with Quicktime Broadcaster instead of VLC and see if I can get the right stream pointed at the SNOM box. The settings you are specifying are different than what I was trying before; the instructions I was following were for an earlier version of the SNOM software I believe.
  3. Thank you both for your replies; I'll try the suggested steps. In answer to your question we are running 2011- (FreeBSD)
  4. We recently migrated to SNOM ONE running on Mac OS 10.7 Lion. Our system is pretty much working properly, but I have literally spent over 15 hours trying to get MOH to work as advertised here: http://wiki.snomone.com/index.php?title=Streaming_VLC_and_snom_ONE I have tried VLC on 3 different machines. I have tried virtually every conceivable setting to stream RTP audio into port 42000 to the static IP of the dedicated Mac running the switch. I have also tried Quicktime Broadcaster as an alternative to VLC. While I CAN get music to show up OK on hold if I use a WAV file instead of streaming, but I need to play a very long playlist and update it from time to time, so this isn't an optimal solution. I would like to either use a physical appliance plugged into the Mac audio input jack (not supported in OS X), or a stream from an audio player. I simply can NOT get it to sound OK when streaming1 The audio IS there, but (depending on the hundreds of combinations of settings I tried) it either has static/distortion, OR it stutters and echoes. When using VLC 1.03, I use the Advanced Open File command to select either a single WAV file -- prepared as described in the link above, e.g., 8 kHz 16 bit WAV -- and then I tell it to stream to the fixed internal IP. As I say, the audio appears, just not with sufficient integrity to be actually tolerable (it stutters, clicks, and echoes). I have tried a variety of TTL numbers, I have tried with and without transcoding. I have not had any success using command line to manipulate VLC. AS I say, the BEST I have been able to attain is a situation where one can hear pieces of lyrics for a fraction of a second. If one stops the music source, one hears an echo of the last bit of audio, which eventually fades away. This is interesting, it's as if the RTP is feeding back on itself somehow, but it isn't -- this is why I've tried multiple sources, from different physical machines / network nodes, and different pieces of software, different audio sources, etc. etc. etc. I'm an experienced troubleshooter in general. I'm interested to know if anyone has ever gotten this to work in my configuration? Thus the poll. In my exhaustive searching of the Interwebs, I have found plenty of people trying it, but ZERO who have claimed success in this configuration. My hypothesis currently is that it isn't me, that it in fact doesn't work on the Mac -- please, prove me wrong and tell me how you did it! Thank you - David "Techgoose" Farrow
