CNN live Stream to PS3

Post by cocabonga » Wed Jun 05, 2019 12:38 am


I'm trying to get the CNN Live stream to my PS3. It is my understanding that the PMS or UMS can do that as there is a folder called TV. Now while PMS runs pretty good out of the box when it comes to files stored locally, it seems to be a nightmare to get a live stream to work, as there seems to be no good documentation that wood start from scratch. I myself have no experience with livestreaming or plug-ins for the PMS at all and I do not even know where to begin. There are sooo many terms around when to comes to live streaming such as RTSP, MMS, etc....

All I have is 2 links that would load a live stream in the Web browser:

Now how would I get a direct link to the stream at first? What plug-ins would I need? And where would I begin I if want to get an understanding of all the stream, and plug-ins jungle?

Help would be very much appreciated
