I'm building as a hobby custom DVR -software for my personal (hobbies doesn't need to make sense right?) use and I've been trying to figure for months why I have TS Continuity Counter errors with live555MediaServer and my Set-top boxes player (same happens with VLC as a client so it's easier for me to get log from it if needed)
Perhaps what you’re seeing is just packet loss? Remember that you’re doing real-time streaming (over RTP/UDP), not on-demand downloading (e.g., as you’d do from a web server). Also, when streaming a Transport Stream file, our server simply packs the file contents - as is - into outgoing RTP packets. It doesn’t modify the Transport Stream data at all.
You can test this by using “openRTSP” <http://www.live555.com/openRTSP/> rather than VLC as your client. This will download a file (because you’re streaming Transport Stream data, this will be a Transport Stream file), which you can compare to the original. You can also use the “-Q” command-line option to “openRTSP” to get network ‘quality of service’ statistics - including packet loss.
