PERL script to check the status of a Live365 stream and report results.


CheckLive365 is a PERL script that will check the status of a Live365 stream and report the results.

There are three run time options for CheckLive365:

-aSend a status report via email
-wHTML formated output
-f filenameWrite output to filename

This code requires that you modify it to your stream's specifc IP address and port number. You can obtain this information from your broadcaster's page on Live365.

This code also requires PERL and the Mail::Sender module be installed on the machine from which you are running it. It has been tested under Windows NT 4.0 SP6 and ActiveState Perl v5.6.0. I would appreciate hearing from anyone running on other platforms.

This program is free for use in non-commercial environments. For commercial applications contact Frontier Digital.

PLEASE send suggestions and ALL bug reports to I can't fix it if I don't know it's broken!
