IPTV and igmp proxy

Fri Sep 12, 2008 1:43 am

Hello

My ISP does not provide to users PIM with RP IPTV, only solution: to see IPTV with router igmp proxy feature, for example on popular router linksys is option Enable multicast (it is igmp proxy option) and after I create port forward UDP 5000 to one local lan PC, only after it i can see IPTV with vlc or friptv.

How configure (if its possible) Mikrotik with igmp proxy, now I have Routerboard 433AH with Mikrotik and how to see IPTV without PIM RP?

You can try to forward UDP 5000 port to local PC and see if it works.

If I forward UDP 5000 - no results...
I think in mikrotik must be igmp proxy feature.. I don't know are this feature implemented or not... Can anyone run iptv from ISP with mikrotik without PIM ?

When i use dd-wrt i don't need to touch any settings, but i can't use MT.

I tried
[admin@MikroTik] /routing igmp-proxy> interface add interface=ether1 upstream=yes
[admin@MikroTik] /routing igmp-proxy> interface add interface=all

but
[admin@MikroTik] /routing igmp-proxy> interface print
Flags: X - disabled, I - inactive, D - dynamic, U - upstream
# INTERFACE RATE-LIMIT THRESHOLD
0 IU CPMS 0 1
1 I all 0 1

How can I check if something is wrong?

better add separate interfaces, so you have more control over what is doing what

for testing purpose, you can make some multicast traffic (PIM-SM) and check if it gets correctly through igmp proxy (data stream)

as you see in print, interfaces are marked as Inactive - means, nothing is working.



that one is correct
/routing igmp-proxy interface add interface=ether1 upstream=yes

like that you should be able to add more interfaces
/routing igmp-proxy interface add interface=ether2 upstream=no

check if all interfaces have ip address assigned.

i have rebooted router, and interface are not inactive now.
But nothing works.

in log I can see:
igmp-proxy info_starting IGMP proxy forwarding
and a lot of messages like this:
igmp-proxy warning_ignoring IGMP message: received on the upstream interface
igmp-proxy warning_ignoring IGMP message: group is not a multicast address
igmp-proxy warning_ group=0.0.0.0

it works.
the solution was to reboot router after every step :)

but now another problem - mt doesn't leave tv channels.
I 'm changing channel on vlc, but mt doesn't leave previous. So after i change 3 channels, everything stops - 3x3.5MB for every channel

set quick-leave=yes, then channel swaping will occur faster, as special leave packet will be sent the moment you switch, other way you have to wait for timeout.

Dear Friends i configured IPTV with IGMP Proxy.. Iptv started working with all clients that are connected on hotspot or pppoe server. But now another problem occured. When iptv runs in vlc or app the internet stopped working with some clients and hotspot page doesn't appear in the browser and internet service break down and iptv started run.. How to get both traffic without any problem. Did any one knows about it.

My configurations is :
IGMP PROXY
Upstream on WAN interface subnet 0.0.0.0/24
and add another interface LAN without subnet
