Jon Johansen has posted details on his blog last week regarding a tool he developed for removing some encoding surrounding the Windows Media Player, to give open-source media players a chance to play the streams.
By removing the encoding around NSC files that store data, Johansen is able to allow open-source video media players and streaming services to tap into multicast streams, said Derk-Jan Hartman, a developer with VideoLAN, a nonprofit open-source video media player organization. Hartman and another VideoLAN member asked Johansen to come to their assistance, Hartman said.
