Update: Streaming Video Links [MSNBC, BBC]

Posted on 03/21/2003 3:26:45 PM PST by SlickWillard

 

If anyone knows of a live feed for CNN, or Britain's Sky News, please tell me, and I'll add the code. There are some more links on this thread, but few of them work, and those that do tend to link to local stations. I'd also like to get a link to Al-Jazeera [spelling?] if they've got a streaming feed somewhere.

This is the general formula for the MSNBC live feeds [requires Windows Media Player]:

mms://lv-msnbc.msnbc.com/msnbcX

There are at least 11 of them; #1, #2, #3, and #6 are the interesting ones:

MSNBC Main Feed
mms://lv-msnbc.msnbc.com/msnbc1

Downtown Baghdad
mms://lv-msnbc.msnbc.com/msnbc2

Whitehouse Briefing Room [currently on hold, but goes live when Ari Fleischer appears]
mms://lv-msnbc.msnbc.com/msnbc3

Seattle [currently on hold]
mms://lv-msnbc.msnbc.com/msnbc4

Seattle [currently on hold]
mms://lv-msnbc.msnbc.com/msnbc5

David Bloom from Iraq
mms://lv-msnbc.msnbc.com/msnbc6

? [currently on hold]
mms://lv-msnbc.msnbc.com/msnbc7

Seattle [currently on hold]
mms://lv-msnbc.msnbc.com/msnbc8

New Jersey [currently on hold]
mms://lv-msnbc.msnbc.com/msnbc9

? [currently on hold]
mms://lv-msnbc.msnbc.com/msnbc10

? [currently overloaded]
mms://lv-msnbc.msnbc.com/msnbc11

This is the general formula for the BBC live feeds [requires Real Player]:
rtsp://rmlivev8e.bbc.net.uk/farm/*/ev7/live24/news/nowX.rm
Earlier today, "now1.rm" was giving the Whitehouse Briefing Room, but it's down now. The others come and go as well, but "now5.rm" seems to be a constant feed of BBC news:
BBC News Main Feed
rtsp://rmlivev8e.bbc.net.uk/farm/*/ev7/live24/news/now5.rm
Here is some code that embeds six of the MSNBC feeds in a single page; if you save the code to a file that ends in ".htm" [say, "msnbc.htm"], you can launch it and watch all six feeds at once. I've autostarted feeds 1, 4, and 6 [<param name="autostart" value="true">]; feeds 3, 4, and 5 must be started manually [<param name="autostart" value="false">].

The Real software is VERY POORLY WRITTEN [and barely coexists with other players], but if you want to put the BBC live feed in a web page, here is some code that will do the trick:

***** BEGIN bbc.htm *****
<html>

<title>BBC Live Feed</title>

&nbsp;<br>
<center>
<embed SRC="rtsp://rmlivev8e.bbc.net.uk/farm/*/ev7/live24/news/now5.rm" WIDTH="225" HEIGHT="140" CONTROLS="ImageWindow" CONSOLE="one" MAINTAINASPECT="true"><br>

</html>

***** END bbc.htm *****

Thanks for putting all these together. I've been finding various feeds out at various times throughout the day, so this is most helpful.

Thanks. I don't know what the heck to do with the "***** BEGIN msnbc.htm *****", but thanks. It looks very impressive and I'm sure it would work if I was doing it right. LOL!

Bump for the more intelligent among us.

Dog Gone: Thanks for the info. You're a lifesaver. :-)

Click the MSNBC Baghdad feed. You will hear an incredibly bizarre sounding Muslim chant. Spooky!
