Automatic Transcoding of published Streams fails

Automatic Transcoding of published Streams fails

Support ForumCategory: Integration and CustomizationAutomatic Transcoding of published Streams fails

Hi, I just wanted to inform you of a small issue that I encountered. Maybe someone will encounter the same problem, or have additional information regarding this. I was trying to get evostream to automatically provide a low-quality version of a stream which I published in high quality. I managed to achieve this by adding a "transcode"-api function to evostream web services and adding a plugin which calls this function everytime a stream with a specific name was published. In the end I could observe how the transcode()-api call arrived at evostream but the evo-avconv binary failed to retrieve the rtsp-stream from evostream for transcoding.

As you see, SDP cannot be executed successfully. However, invoking avconv manually with the exact command line would work just fine. After several hours debugging i found that apparently the rtsp-stream is not immediately available when a rtmp-stream has been published, which causes the transcoding to fail with the output indicated above. I resolved this issue by adding a short delay right before calling the avconv binary in the "emsTranscoder.sh" scriptfile (line numbers might vary slightly, because I might have inserted debugging instructions here and there):

220
221 # Run the binary
222 sleep 1
223 exec $TRANSCODER_BIN -loglevel error  $TRANSCODE
224
Now the output is as expected and the transcoded stream is available for streaming:

Hopefully I can save some future googler from the many hours I spent debugging on this one 😉 best, benny
