Audio Stream Out CHOP
To access the stream in one of these players, open a "Network Stream" or "URL" under the File menu.
Below is an example of a URL used to access the stream in a rtsp client.
- IP Address = IP address of computer running TouchDesigner with the Audio Stream Out CHOP.
- Port = number set in the Port parameter.
- Stream Name = name given to stream in the Stream Name parameter.
The URL required is rtsp://<IP address>:<Port>/<Stream Name>
Parameters - Audio Stream Out Page
active - Toggle's the rtsp server on or off.
port - Port number used to transmit the audio stream. This number is needed in the URL supplied to the client receiving the stream. See example in Summary at top.
streamname - Name assigned to the stream. This stream name is needed in the URL supplied to the client receiving the stream. See example in Summary at top.
Parameters - WebRTC Page
webrtc - Set the WebRTC DAT (ie. peer) to send the audio stream over. Setting this will automatically populate the WebRTC Connection parameter menu with available connections.
webrtcconnection - Select the WebRTC peer-to-peer connection. Selecting this will automatically population the WebRTC Track parameter menu with available audio output tracks.
webrtctrack - Select the audio output track that's a part of the WebRTC peer-to-peer connection. The audio stream will be sent over this track.
Parameters - Common Page
timeslice - Turning this on forces the channels to be "Time Sliced". A Time Slice is the time between the last cook frame and the current cook frame.
scope - To determine which channels get affected, some CHOPs use a Scope string on the Common page.
Sample Rate Match
srselect - ⊞ - Handle cases where multiple input CHOPs' sample rates are different. When Resampling occurs, the curves are interpolated according to the Interpolation Method Option, or "Linear" if the Interpolate Options are not available.
- Resample At First Input's Rate
first- Use rate of first input to resample others.
- Resample At Maximum Rate
max- Resample to the highest sample rate.
- Resample At Minimum Rate
min- Resample to the lowest sample rate.
- Error If Rates Differ
err- Doesn't accept conflicting sample rates.
exportmethod - ⊞ - This will determine how to connect the CHOP channel to the parameter. Refer to the Export article for more information.
- DAT Table by Index
datindex- Uses the docked DAT table and references the channel via the index of the channel in the CHOP.
- DAT Table by Name
datname- Uses the docked DAT table and references the channel via the name of the channel in the CHOP.
- Channel Name is Path:Parameter
autoname- The channel is the full destination of where to export to, such has
autoexportroot - This path points to the root node where all of the paths that exporting by Channel Name is Path:Parameter are relative to.
exporttable - The DAT used to hold the export information when using the DAT Table Export Methods (See above).
- Input 0: -
Info CHOP Channels
Extra Information for the Audio Stream Out CHOP can be accessed via an Info CHOP.

- cook_end_time - Time in milliseconds at which the operator finished cooking in the frame it was cooked.
- cooked_this_frame - 1 if operator was cooked this frame.
- warnings - Number of warnings in this operator if any.
- errors - Number of errors in this operator if any.
