Viewing in VLC

Hi Everybody, I hope this finds you all well.

Does anybody know if it is possible, in Debian, to ‘pipe’ the output of MotionBox to view it in VLC?



That’s not possible right now. But I’m open to contributions.

Supposedly since MotionBox uses libVLC you shouldn’t need that for classic playback.

Hi bunjee,

Thanks for your reply. I don’t have the skill to be able to contribute I’m afraid, sorry. The reason I would like to view in vlc is to be able to use a different renderer, such as a television in another part of the house, for example. If that’s not possible then no problem I’ll stick to using it as is.

Thanks for a great program.



Hi bunjee I hope you are well in the current times. My original request in this ‘subject’ was to be able to, via vlc, render on another device. Lo and behold what do I find on the latest update but the ability to do just that. Thank you so much, you’ve turned an excellent program into a stupendous one. Thanks again.

To be fair, it’s Chromecast support and does not work for everything. But thank you for your kind words.

I’ll be working on something new that actually improves this situation in the future.

Also, feedback like yours is fairly rare and heartwarming. Cheers to you my good man :beer:

I’ve got a Sony tv with Chromecast built in and it works really well.

Yes, you just can’t please some people.

Thanks again
