How to Watch TV Online Using VLC Media Player

VLC media player is one of the most famous open source media players. Did you know that you can use VLC media player as a television and watch tv channels on it? In this post I will show you how you can do that with an easy tutorial. So, lets begin.

1. Open up VLC Media Player. Don’t have it installed? Download VLC player from here –> Link.

2. See the first option on the top? “Media”. Click it and then click the second last option from the drop down box, “Streaming”.
3. After clicking “Streaming” option, a new dialog box opens up which has 4 tabs. You have to select the third one –> “Network”.

4. Now you have opened the “Network” tab and have an empty box where you have to enter the network URL. For eg. rtsp://ss1c6.idc.mundu.tv:554/prf0/cid_4.sdp is the network URL of Aaj Tak.
5. After entering the network URL, click that downwards arrow(with the “Stream” button) and choose the “Play” option.
Thats it. Some 15-20 seconds later you will be able to watch the channel you have given the network URL for.

For some unknown reasons, I was not able to take a perfect screenshot of the video but I hope you have understood the tutorial. Below are the network URLs of some available channels.

    Awesome…….But the video is not clear.It might be because of comparable slow speed of broadband.
