VLC’s embed is great.
It allows me without any effort to **stream anything.**Now, that’s not really cool, 'cause I could have used a server to transcode the video to anything that the HTML5 supports, and be done with it.
Except that VLC’s Embed can do it real-time, without a server to transcode, thus saving me precious ms’es when i comes to real-time streaming from web cameras and everything like that.
Everything about VLC is great, except that because it’s an NPAPI plugin, it’s already pretty much unsupported by Chrome, and soon the support will be removed completly (right now, one must activate it via flags, see my guide on how to do it.
Plugin / Flash / Extension / Whatever has to have:
- Work without active connection the internet.
- Work with Live Streams and Files: RTSP, mjpeg, rtp streams. also, MP4 preferably but not required.
- Work on Latest Chrome.
TL:DR What are some alternatives? I need to have mjpeg, rtsp, rtp, and probably several other encodings (that’s the name for it? protocols, maybe) in the future, an I am very reluctant to use a server as an intermediary.
