Webcast Receiver Software

Postby marcporter » Thu Feb 16, 2012 11:19 am

Does anyone know if the front end software for the webcast receiver is available for download? We have access to a couple of winxp thin clients that would work really well as receivers and I would like to make them function the same as the Church supplied receiver.

Are you asking about the Meetinghouse Webcast Software? That can be downloaded here.

I am asking about the receiving end, not the transmission side.

The receiving end only needs Windows Media Player, as noted in the View a Webcast instructions. What else are you looking for that you would configure differently from any other computer running WMP?

Thank you for your replies. If you have used the webcast receiver box that the Church used to sell, you would note that the device boots directly to a screen where the user enters the unit number and the event id to start receiving the stream. I do understand that the receiver is simply running windows media player, but configuring the device to boot in this way makes it really easy for just about anybody to set it up, as far as the user is concerned, they never even see windows. Similar to the reasons why so many people like the webcast communicator vs. the webcast software. I was just hoping to gain access to the interface they used to install on the receivers when they used to sell it.
Thanks
