multicast video streams
I have a requirement to record a minimum of 20 multicast video streams to disk with a number of requirements. 1. The video need to be saved in DivX format, specifically DivX50 format has been specified. 2. I need to be able to select which of the videos feeds are recorded as this will change depending on which test we are running, each test may need anywhere between 4 and all 20 feeds recorded. 3. I need to be able to start and stop the recording of all video feeds at the same time. 4. I need to be able to give specific and unique filename to each of the video files, one file per video feed. I expect I will need to use the API to achieve some of the above but need to know if it is possible. In the future we expect the number of feeds to increase up to 50+ and still meet the above requirements. Also can this all be done using a Virtual server or will I need to dedicate a single physical server to the task.
Our videos can only be saved as .mp4, .flv. and .ts using our record api command. We do not output .divx format. As for the control of starting and stopping the recording of the video feeds at the same time, you need to create a script for this functionality. EMS does not have a functionality which will instruct itself to record multiple feeds at the same time. As for the specific filename, you can control the output name of your recorded feed. As for the server, it will still depend upon the quality of your streams.
