VLC Streamer custom encoding

If you don't know your way around a sout string, then please skip this page!

To use a custom string, follow these steps:

  1. Pick a movie
  2. Tap on the Manual option at the bottom
  3. Select 'Use custom sout'
  4. Tap on 'Edit'
  5. Edit the sout string and press 'save' when you are done


VLC has a load of documentation and loads of examples in their forum - though they are pretty chaotic!

They do have a nice guide on transcoding movies for your iPod which introduce the main settings that we use in the sout string

if you figure out anything useful - let me know
