VLC - Stream unconverted video files

Before you can stream video files in our built-in web player, they need to be converted to mp4 format. Because of the amount of data we need to process, this can take up considerable time. However, if the conversion should take more than a few seconds, our live streaming will kick in and you can watch it without any issue. 

You can avoid waiting and
stream, without converting, by using a VLC player. This already popular and widespread media player can be downloaded for free. Streaming should start within a few seconds depending on your internet connection speed. You can also add subtitles. Have a look at OpenSubtitles.org if you are not sure where to get them.

How to stream with VLC player on PC

  1. Go to the file detail, right-click the Download button and choose Copy link address



  2. Run your VLC player, click File on the top bar and choose Open from the network




  3. Insert the link to URL input and click Open.



  4. Streaming should start within a few seconds depending on your internet connection speed. The same method can be used for the mobile version of the VLC player
  5. You can get subtitles from Opensubtitles.org. Click on Subtitles in the top bar and Add subtitles. You can also drag and drop the .srt file directly to the VLC window.
