Ffmpeg (avconv) + crtmpserver Linux streaming video, no player to play it
Hello Linux experts,
I'm working on live video streaming project, and my job is to create video streaming server using
Here is what I've done so far:
1. Installed crtmpserver from Ubuntu's repositories.
2. Installed ffmpeg
To test the server i use webcam as source of video, and the following command:
avconv -f video4linux2 -i /dev/video0 -f flv -an -metadata streamName="test" tcp://localhost:6666
The command output is:
So far so good, BUT when I try to play the stream with mplayer from another console with the command:
mplayer rtmp://localhost/live/test mplayer is stalled for very long time (10-15 min.) before the video starts.
If in the meantime I terminate the avconv command, the video is being shown immediately by mplayer.
I tryied the following mplayer options without success:
different combinations of -cachie N
I have just joined, and have a problem...
I am doing my thesis and need to transfer a file from server to the client, while doing that I want to stream the file ( the files being video/audio files).
I am unable to figure out abt the streaming part...if there exist any libraries... (0 Replies)
