Nope I definitely cannot get streamdev to stream. I tried to stream to VLC using any of the URLs on the localhost:3000 webpage without success.

VDR syslog extract:
Apr  3 22:17:23 bob vdr: [30570] Streamdev: Accepted new client (HTTP)
Apr  3 22:17:23 bob vdr: [8832] streamdev-livestreaming thread started (pid=30557, tid=8832, prio=high)
Apr  3 22:17:23 bob vdr: [8831] streamdev-writer thread started (pid=30557, tid=8831, prio=high)

VLC log (last few lines only):
access_http debug: http: server='bob' port=3000 file='/TS/T-9018-4173-6720.ts'
main debug: net: connecting to bob port 3000
main debug: connection succeeded (socket = 23)
access_http debug: protocol 'HTTP' answer code 200

Can anyone suggest how I can investigate this further?
