Exploring the Open Source Ethernet Broadcaster

In this second and final post we will go deep inside the Ethernet audio streaming transceiver firmware.

Recently, we have presented an Ethernet audio streaming unit. In particular, we have shown how to configure the boards to work with other similar devices or with VLC Media Player, setting up a point-to-point or a broadcast streaming in all possible configurations. Also in the first episode, we analyzed the electrical circuit and the components choice. Now it is time to describe the board software advanced options and how to update firmware via Internet or manually.

AUTHENTICATION AND LOCAL NETWORK

In the Authentication page, you can change your credentials to access all the restricted areas. The software allows two roles, each accessible with username and password. The software recognizes as Admin the role with the highest level of administrator privileges, only it can change all available settings; instead the role with less rights is simply “User”. When you login as administrator in the Authentication page, you get a form (first figure), where you can change your credentials; similarly, when you login as user (as in second figure) you can change the user role settings only.
