• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Trunker/Unitrunker output to webpage?

Would it be possible to have trunker, unitrunker or any of the other ports to run on a webpage live using some sort of java app?

Is that really trunker/unitrunker running? In any case, it's not actually output to a web page (it's a client/server distributed system via a private sockets-based protocol).

No doubt, that dude's got skilz. I'm in awe...

Setting-up Trunker or Unitrunker to output to a web page would be pretty cool. Maybe when Rick releases the source code to Unitrunker, that can be one of the "add on" projects. In fact, implementing the display in HMTL would pro'lly be more generically useful than writing a typical Windoze GUI program. You could use it locally OR remotely. Hmmmm...

Alternatively (as somebody suggested somplace) a cheesier but easier solution would be to optionally make Unitrunker output its info to a set of database tables, and slap the web pages up based on that. Let's the user control output formatting that way, etc...

As if Java isn't bloated as it is, think of the hog this would create.

I'm guessing you're thinking of a Java web interface similar to what WinVNC does?

My idea, as I posted on the trunked group, is to stream the data (not serial but OSW code) over the internet.

I don't think a real-time screen display of the Trunker display would be easy or truly effective. If you have the code you can do anything with it you normally could with a local data source.
