I am attempting to stream lectures via the MMS protocol (
mms://xxxx/xxx/xxx.wmv) in Windows and Linux Mint 11. In Windows, this is no problem using Windows Media Player. In Linux, however, I have to change the protocol in VLC's network stream tab to RTSP.
The problem is:
I can't speed up the playback (ie. 1.5x, I have to save time).
The time bar doesn't work, so you can't tell how far into a lecture you are or how much time is left.
How can I stream videos over MMS in Linux while preserving the ability to change playback speed and view playback progress?
