How to setup Darwin Streaming Server on Windows

PS: Part 2 of this article can be found here.

What is Darwin Streaming Server?

Darwin Streaming Server is an open source, free to use streaming server from Apple. The commercial version of this server is the Quick Time Streaming Server.

Where do I get it from?

The Darwin streaming server source code can be downloaded here. You need an Apple ID for this. Registration is free – go get an Apple ID for yourself.

How do I install?

Once you download the source code, you will see a install.bat in the root directory. Just double click on it and the batch file will copy the necessary files under C:\Program Files\Darwin Streaming Server. This is all the installation required.

How do I start streaming?

Along with the source code, Apple ships a few sample video clips which are ready to be streamed. All these video clips are under the C:\Program Files\Darwin Streaming Server\Movies folder. You can stream any of these video clips and view it on a player. Open up a command prompt. Go to C:\Program Files\Darwin Streaming Server and start Darwin server by typing DarwinStreamingServer.exe -d. If all is fine, you will get some INFO messages and a message that says ‘Streaming Server done starting up’. This means the server is up and ready to accept client connections.

If you get an error something like ‘WARNING: Another process is already using the following RTSP port: 554′, then the Darwin Service is already running in the background and you don’t have to start the server explicitly.

Your server is ready and all set to stream.

How do I connect using a player?

VLC Player: File->Open Network Stream. Select RTSP and give the URL as rtsp://localhost:554/sample_100kbit.mp4

QuickTime player: File->Open URL. Give the URL as rtsp://localhost:554/sample_100kbit.mp4

If all is fine, you should see an animated ‘Q’ – logo of Quick Time.

    Hi,
    I installed Darwin. While starting it using “DarwinStreamingServer.exe -d”, it’s throwing error like
    WARNING: Another process is already using the following RTSP port: 554
    WARNING: Another process is already using the following RTSP port: 7070
    WARNING: Another process is already using the following RTSP port: 8000
    WARNING: Another process is already using the following RTSP port: 8001
    WARNING: Streaming Server failed to listen on all requested RTSP port(s).
    WARNING: Streaming Server is not listening for RTSP on any ports.

    Please help me to resolve the problem.

    Thank you

    Ram,

    I guess you didn’t read my post properly. See here:

    “If you get an error something like ‘WARNING: Another process is already using the following RTSP port: 554′, then the Darwin Service is already running in the background and you don’t have to start the server explicitly.”

    So I get the test videos working great, but I can’t seem to get any other videos working other then the samples… anyone else had this problem? I’ve tried even converting videos to IPOD/Quicktime H.264, and still get errors trying to open them.

  6. Windows Guy says:

    Doesn’t anybody distribute an already compiled version of Darwin Streaming Server? I don’t have the resources to compile the code myself.

      Open up command prompt and run the following command for web administration purposes:
      C:\Perl\bin\perl “C:\Program Files\Darwin Streaming Server\streamingadminserver.pl”
      (Note: Do not close this window or web administration won’t work but server will run, you can
      also copy the command to bat file and place it in the Windows startup folder)
      Note: On Windows it may be necessary to reset the administrative password before running streamingserveradmin.pl, the Perl administrative server. You can create/reset the administrative password on Windows with the following command:
      C:\Perl\bin\perl “C:\Program Files\Darwin Streaming Server\WinPasswdAssistant.pl”
      If you don’t have perl s/w, here is the link to download.

      Hi Ziathegreat,

      I think DSS only works for rtsp and not http. btw, I tried installing DSS 6.0.3 to windows XP but I got error – “couldn’t find the en language messages file”

      Can you tell me where can I find DS 6.0.3 compiled installer? I guess the one that I downloaded was only a source code.

      Thanks,
      Mon

      • fish says:

        I also got the problem that “couldn’t find the en language messages file! ”
        How could i solve it?

      • Houdini says:

        Try copying over the AdminHtml folder from the installation package to the installed folder, overwriting the empty folders that are there. That should send Pearl on its way finding the language file.

    where is Darwin server download link ? I am seraching from last 24 hrs…

    please help me…

  16. Zen of Linux says:

    I anyone has problems getting Darwin to work on Win32, be sure to rename “streamingserver.xml-sample” to “streamingserver.xml”. Then, on command line, if you get “Couldn’t read xml file. Fatal error: Could not load configuration file at \streamingserver.xml”, then add on command line the option “-c” and add the location of the config file with full path. Also, you can go into the config file and see if all the paths are correct.

    Worked for me…

  17. Rocktronik says:

    same like chris

    i’ve got DSS running on vista(for testing/research purpose), able to play all of the sample files using VLC media player as a client…

    but if i added a new file into the folder, i can’t accessed it. already check the security , ownership and all with no satisfactory results..the new file still can be played

    vlc player gives error :

        Hi M.Co co,

        I can’t find this .exe file at that location … so I checked the installer back which this .bat file.

        There is bat command to copy that exe file from the source.

        But I searched this exe file inside my downloaded source. I can’t find it.

        Could you help me to upload this exe or other way that you can pass it to me ?

  20. younus saleem says:

    some findings….
    I installed the darwin on winxp sp2. To start it I ran a command in command prompt “DarwinStreamingServer.exe -d” and kept teh command prompt open as it did not exit automatically (i wished so).

    I use the sample files in movies folder they played well, but when i try to play my files they fail with some error message.(on VLC player of course).

    later i tried to find out teh sample file information and I used ffmpe to do so,
    i did the following,

    ffmpeg -i sample_h264_1mbit.mp4

    Input #0, mov,mp4,m4a,3gp,3g2,mj2, from ‘sample_h264_1mbit.mp4′:
    Duration: 00:01:10.01, start: 0.000000, bitrate: 1019 kb/s
    Stream #0.0(eng): Audio: aac, 48000 Hz, stereo, s16
    Stream #0.1(eng): Video: h264, yuv420p, 380×480, 30 tbr, 30 tbn, 60 tbc
    Stream #0.2(eng): Data: rtp / 0x20707472
    Stream #0.3(eng): Data: rtp / 0x20707472

    it strangely has rtp packets in the stream and none of the streams I generated have the same.

    Anyone knows a fix. please help.

  21. younus saleem says:

    found a fix,

    I hinted the stream using MP4Box
    command is MP4box -hint filename

    that fixed it.

      I’m trying to install DSS 6.0.3 in Windows 7 and running the Install.bat, I receive the same message. I have edited the batch file and I’ve inserted “pause” to see the messages in detail.

      So, I saw that the file “DarwinStreamingServer.exe” is missing.

  33. nate says:

    just install ubuntu 10.10 desktop as dual boot on your server computer, then download/ install dss from here and it works just great. also use wirecast to hint the movies (w/ watermark) or mp4box which i have heard of.

    • nate says:

      my links dont work there…. use krypted.com/mac-os-x-server/quicktime-streaming-server-on-ubuntu-10 for the instructions and telestream.com/wirecast for wirecast and just google mp4box.

    • Alec Hsiao says:

      I have the same problem at my office server,
      you have to close your firewall and Antivirus software,
      then restart the server .I think to do things above you will run Darwin Server without any problems.

  36. Houdini says:

    I can’t seem to get DSS 6.0.3 to work on windows platform – tried batch building the files and got fed up when the errors reached 7560 and counting. So, I installed version 5.5.5, which works nicely, however, how do I add IP cameras to the server?

    • Houdini says:

      …Ok, I figured it out.

      • nraab807 says:

        Can you email me the steps you took to compiling the code to an executable? I’m lost on how to do this.

      • Houdini says:

        I figured out how to add the IP cameras, but as I stated before I am using version 5.5.5 since version 6+ was a pain to compile. I am having no problems with version 5.5.5 and if you wish to use it then all you need to do is download and install (no code compiling).

    Hi. I have Darwin Streaming Server running on a Mac, but I want to stream from a PC Webcam. I have been unable to find an app for Win7 that will allow me to send a stream to DSS. Do you have any suggestions?

    Thanks
