Stream using UPnP

Using the Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) networking protocol, Pearl-2 can be discovered and can stream to software and hardware media players, set-top boxes, and Smart TVs with ease. When UPnP is enabled, Pearl-2 automatically establishes communication with media players on the network.

UPnP uses MPEG-TS over HTTP with the H.264 codec and MP3 or AAC audio encoding (or no audio). You can only access live streams or recordings that meet these requirements.

For security reasons, UPnP access to live streams and recorded files is disabled by default.

Some players cannot access the stream or saved recordings if a viewer password is set. See User administration to remove the viewer password if set.
