Playing IPTV Multicast stream
I gave OpenBSD a try as a desktop/workstation system. I'm even surprised how usable OpenBSD is after all, almost everything works as I've excepted (ok, missing a proper flash player is a bit annoying...)
However, I've couple of days been fighting to make IPTV work. My Internet connection includes possibility to watch IPTV as multicast stream. In Debian GNU/Linux it works correctly - I can watch streams via VLC player or Mplayer. Command mplayer 'udp://@<ip address>:<port>' starts playing the multicast stream on Linux, but in OpenBSD mplayer says:
Timeout! No data from host <ip>
No stream found to handle url udp://@<ip>:<port>
My network router is configured properly as I can watch IPTV thourgh it on Linux.
I've tried to allow multicast connections on pf with some how-tos without success. I've even disabled pf temporarily, but that didn't work either. It seems to me that there is some thing which blocks receiving multicast streams, but that's not pf. Any ideas?
I've OpenBSD 4.7-stable installation, i386 platform.
