Hello,

I am trying to simulate video traffic in Mininet, so that one host sends it to another. I did what the answer in this question suggests, which means :

  • I downloaded an mp4 video and transferred it to my Mininet VM.
  • I installed VLC player on my Mininet VM.
  • I used the command :

    sudo mn --topo single, 2
    
  • Then I ran the command :

    mininet> h1 vlc-wrapper $VideoFile --sout '#rtp{dst=10.0.0.2,port=1234}'
    

    but my console shows nothing... It shows only :

    mininet>
    

    and it is as if something is running, and it stops with Ctrl+C. What am I doing wrong?
