It works on my end too. Just out of curiousity, what did you use as the server path when you created the RefMov? What did you use to make the RefMov?

I'll try creating a new RefMov since I already have 3 good alternates up on the server.

there was a stray process not releasing the port, which was blocking new connections.

I opened the RTSP URL in Quicktime Player. I have QT Pro, so I saved the movie as a reference movie right from there. All was well. Opening the ref movie in BBEdit, it looks like it's just embedding the whole RTSP path in there, just as I've done on another site, where we use PHP to build ref movies on the fly.

Download the file from the link and open it in a text editor; you'll see.

OK, looks like the problem is solved, the DSS server needed a restart, now everything is working. It is still unclear why RefMovies didn't work when I first started experimenting with streaming on DreamHost several months ago. I'm doing nothing different but now it's working. Oh well, at least it's working now.

I will try to document some of this Reference Movie stuff in the support wiki, since it appears that the use of RefMovs isn't obvious.

The embedding using a qtl file is working.
Can anyone tell me how to set up multiple movies in quicktime?
Something like an m3u format for movies

EDIT!!!! Sorry, mis-read your post, yeah, um... I'm not sure, I guess you can just make a playlist in windows mdeia player, save it, link the files to your server, like the vids and upload all the videos, dunno

m3u is a play list, not a format of a movie, like .mov, .wmv .mpg/.mpeg .avi are movie formats, play lists can be .m3u but not an actual movie, just FYI

Is this streaming actually live, so like just say there are 3 people watching the video, person 1 (p1) starts watching at 6PM, p2 6:02PM and p3: 6:20pm, will p3 start watching from the start or does he see what p1 will be seeing 20 mins into the vid?

No. All users will see video from the beginning, irrespective of what time they begin watching. In this respect, it is little more useful than progressive downloading.
