{{Vptopic |topic=Recent Changes broadcast |summary=Question about UDP and multicast }} A week or two ago, I discovered that Mediawiki supports live streaming of the Recent Changes feed [http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Configuration_settings#UDP_updates via UDP]. This sounds promising, as it means that I could set up a bot to do just about anything I wanted based on that feed. ''However'', I can only have MediaWiki target a single IP/port combination. I was considering targeting a multicast IP/port combination, to allow anyone to pick up the feed who was interested. I realize that multicast is typically used for audio/video streaming, but it seems like it would be suited for this as well. Unfortunately, I haven't found much information on how to set up a multicast. Do I target any IP/port in the multicast range, or do I have to get one allocated? If I post this, does anyone else think they might have a use for the feed? --[[User:Short Circuit|Short Circuit]] 09:08, 14 February 2009 (UTC)
