Streaming live audio or video

Mezzmo can stream live audio and video to your devices and web browsers. You can specify that a URL is a live stream when adding the URL into your Mezzmo library.

Add URL dialog

If a URL is live online video (such as a sports event or a webcam) or live online audio (such as online radio), then you can select the Live stream checkbox to tell Mezzmo that this URL is a live stream.

Mezzmo treats live streams differently to normal URLs and files - specifically when it comes to transcoding. Normally, Mezzmo will cache a transcoded file and use it when the URL or file is played again. However, for live streams, Mezzmo does not cache the transcoded file or URL so that it is always the most recent content from the web.

  1. Right-click on the video and click Properties.
  2. On the Properties dialog, go to the Video (or Audio) tab.
