Viewing Your Streams

To view your streams, make sure your decoding devices or applications:

  • support MPEG Transport Stream format,
  • are turned on and connected to a display (if applicable), or open your video player software (e.g., VLC),
  • are accessible on the same network segment as the Makito X, and
  • are “tuned” to the Makito X Destination IP address and Port, for example, / port 2000 (as defined in Setting Up Streaming). 
    • For VLC, select Open Network stream and type in udp://@
    • For unicast streams, the IP address is not needed and you can just type in udp://@:port_number.


For the recommended settings to optimize the Makito X encoder configuration to stream to the Makito X decoder, see Makito Decoder Interoperability in the User's Guide.


In order to optimize your encoder’s performance, it is recommended that only the required network services be enabled. Please review the network services to make sure services used for your application are enabled or disabled as appropriate. See Enabling and Disabling Network Services in the User's Guide.


Clicking Apply does not save your changes and they will be lost after a reboot. Saving configurations as presets provides a way for you to save groups of settings and apply them to other streams. A warning indication

Unsaved Configuration Warning
appears in the title bar on systems with unsaved configurations. For more information, see Saving and Loading Presets in the User’s Guide.
