xplay is a tool for playing Axia Livewire AoIP streams from the command line. Functionally the same as Axia iPlay on Windows, this is a an option for engineers using Linux or OS X. xplay works by piping the audio payload from a multicast RTP stream directly into the SoX utility
play along with a few stream parameters.
If you've installed
rtpdump somewhere odd, you'll need to update those paths in xplay.py
$ chmod +x xplay.py $ cp xplay.py /usr/local/bin/xplay
Make sure you assign your computer an IP address that is on the Axia network. Run xplay with the Axia channel number you'd like to listen in on, and you'll hear the Livewire stream. ^C to end.
