Hi i used this code worked with my old tv-tuner (it connected direct with my PC and i used tv digital for streaming.

Start ""  "C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc" dvb-t://frequency=522000000:bandwidth=0  :dvb-adapter=0 :live-caching=300 :sout=#duplicate{dst=rtp{dst=,port=5004,mux=ts,ttl=1},dst=display} :sout-keep

Now i just changed to new tv tuner model and directly connected to my network. I have successful stream by manually key all the parameter but not work with my command line code. It started by not streaming.

Start ""  "C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc" http://User:4a7d1ed414474e4033ac29ccb8653d9b@;-1;0:q99:Q2000:nCNA+%28HD%29&profile=&stid=2019045506 :sout=#duplicate{dst=rtp{dst=,port=5004,mux=ts,ttl=1},dst=display} :sout-keep

Please someone help me!! :( P.S: im using bat file for executing the script


Read Syntax : Escape Characters, Delimiters and Quotes. There are some characters in your vlc command line that should be escaped to be taken literally. Unfortunately, there are different parsing and escaping rules:

  • from a batch script:
    • & to ^& (ampersand: use standard escape character caret ^);
    • % to %% (double any percent sign);
  • from command line:
    • & to ^& (ampersand: use standard escape character caret ^);
    • % to ^% (percent sign: use standard escape character caret ^ as well).

For better readability, consider merely this substring excerpted from your command line (containing both & and % that should be escaped):

"vlc" substring :nCNA+%28HD%29&profile=&stid=2019045506
::to be escaped       %    %  &        &                         

Then, to escape special characters: in command line, use:

"vlc" substring :nCNA+^%28HD^%29^&profile=^&stid=2019045506
::      escaped       ^%    ^%  ^&        ^&          

In a batch script, use:

"vlc" substring :nCNA+%%28HD%%29^&profile=^&stid=2019045506
::      escaped       %%    %%  ^&        ^&

IMHO you need not to use start "" ... command; if necessary, add more %% and ^^... Next batch script line should work:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc" http://User:4a7d1ed414474e4033ac29ccb8653d9b@;-1;0:q99:Q2000:nCNA+%%28HD%%29^&profile=^&stid=2019045506 :sout=#duplicate{dst=rtp{dst=,port=5004,mux=ts,ttl=1},dst=display} :sout-keep
