Loading UDP stream through a proxy wrapped with ffmpeg

Added by Rap Tor almost 4 years ago

Sorry if this has been posted before, but I searched and could not find a solution

I am trying to load udp streams through a proxy into tvheadend using ffmpeg to wrap it as an mpeg ts by following some suggestions already on this forum. However it is not working, giving me a protocol not found. Here is the log (XXXX is hiding the sensitive information)

the path to ffmpeg is definitely correct, I checked it with whereis. However if I inspect the running processes, ffmpeg never starts up, so is it like it cannot access it?

I am using Tvheadend 4.3-589~g7d0e509 on Linux Mint 18.2

What am I doing wrong please?

Why not use direct M3U as from UDPXY using IPTV Automatic network?
IGMP (multicast) and UDP are different things

RE: Loading UDP stream through a proxy wrapped with ffmpeg - Added by Rap Tor almost 4 years ago

That is how I originally started, I have an m3u files with a list of streams. However when I loaded it, no services were found.

so I started creating individual muxes and inserted the stream url (http://XXXX:XXXX/udp/239.195.32.4:1234), and on scan it does not find a service. I assume this is because it is not mpeg-ts wrapped.

so I ended up with ffmpeg method which I found on this forum, but that is not working either.

any ideas?

btw I cannot use the udp addresses (udp://) directly as it is a remote proxy.

OMG thanks for replying, I solved it, and guess how??

By checking your post history I saw you were helping this guy using Mumudvb, and he mentioned that he needed to disable A/V Library. I tried it and it worked!! I can now use these streams.

thanks!!

Yeah but who would have thought. One setting changed from nothing working to everything working. This setting is on by default!
