Yesterday's stream was quite a success. Not everyone could watch, but the audience was at ~50 most of the show. We've even had the author/choreographer in the chat providing a bit of the walkthrough.
- VLC does not play sound, strangely
- Icecast barely showed any work at this capacity on a basic DO droplet. All resources were more then enough (1xCPU, 1G RAM)
I'm not happy with stream reloads when clip is switched in ffmpeg, looking into named pipes with ffmpeg.
@mathr it doesn't really work. I mean, your advice works - "cat > live.pipe" does keep the reading ffmpeg non-terminated.
but the reading ffmpeg does not like the changing of timebase it receives. i might need to experiment a bit more with different setups - maybe every format needs to be coverted to a kind of raw video first, write that to pipe and then read from it, encode to webm and send to steam.
@luka oh! tricky :( re-encoding loses a lot of quality, but if the files are all the same codecs/bitrates there might be a way to remultiplex them with a continuous time code? no clue at this point
