Hi guys. I am trying to add a stream using pipe:///ffmpeg
When I add this...
pipe:///usr/bin/ffmpeg -loglevel fatal -i http:url.mp4 -vcodec copy -acodec copy -metadata service_provider=STRING -metadata service_name=STRING -f mpegts -tune zerolatency pipe:1
I get this...
spawn: Executing "/usr/bin/ffmpeg"
iptv: pipe: read failed: 90

Can anyone see why this is happening?

What I am expecting is to see a mux or service appear for the network.

The error tells you what tvheadend expects, an m3u playlist, not a video stream

Make an m3u playlist with the pipe command as the url, point tvh to that using file:///.

Hi. I just tried that and I get the following...

2019-03-28 19:30:13.674 mpegts: playlist.m3u - Sky Sports F1 HD in IPTV - tuning on IPTV #1
2019-03-28 19:30:13.676 spawn: Executing "/usr/bin/ffmpeg"

Here is my file...

#EXTINF:-1 tvh-chnum="1",Sky Sports F1 HD
pipe:///usr/bin/ffmpeg -loglevel fatal -i http://URL.mp4 -vcodec copy -acodec copy -metadata service_provider=STRING -metadata service_name="Sky Sports F1" -f mpegts -tune zerolatency pipe:1

It might be worth mentioning that I am using AceProxy to convert a live torrent to a http stream.
