IPTV Stream Requirements

Added by Nick Rowe over 10 years ago

Hey!

What are the requirements on an IPTV stream? Does it have to in an MPEG TS container? I've got the video working AVC High L3 encoding. What are the requirements on audio?

Thanks!

I can get video to work repeatably by making sure the video is always encoded like this:

Video
ID                               : 1
Format                           : AVC
Format/Info                      : Advanced Video Codec
Format profile                   : [email protected]

However I can't see to get audio to work. My audio looks like this:

Format                           : AAC
Format/Info                      : Advanced Audio Codec
Format version                   : Version 2
Format profile                   : LC

When I mux these two streams together into an mp4 and look at the audio again I see this that the audio is being reported as:

Format/Info                      : Advanced Audio Codec
Codec ID                         : 40

I know that the streaming server (VLC) can detect the audio because when it starts up it reports:

[0x8328e24] [Media: channel1] packetizer_mpeg4audio decoder: AAC channels: 2 samplerate: 48000

Further, I can load up the stream using VLC and receive audio and video perfectly.

Does anyone have any experience on what the requirements are for a valid IPTV stream? Does it have to be muxed in a particular way? Does it have to conform to a specific RFC?

Thanks!
