Use VLC in tvheadend.

Added by Alexandr Farnosov 14 days ago

Hello.
Perhaps this topic has been on the forum. But can anyone suggest how to use ' vlc ' inside tvheadend. I have an rtmp stream, when using ffmpeg there is a huge delay and loss of quality.
Or other ways to view 'rtmp' in tvheadend.
Thanks in advance.

Use PIPE option via Spawn profile or by iptv input or inside playlist

Can you help? What exactly to write in mux? I apologize for such stupid questions.

https://wiki.videolan.org/Documentation:Streaming_HowTo/Command_Line_Examples/

something as

vlc -vvv URL --sout '#std{mux=ts,access=file,dst=-}'

RE: Use VLC in tvheadend. - Added by Alexandr Farnosov 14 days ago

Not work.
Perhaps there are other ways to run rtmp?

RE: Use VLC in tvheadend. - Added by saen acro 14 days ago

it will not work because command is incomplete.
you need to convert input RTMP stream to compatible HTTP-TS container

ffmpeg -i "rtsp://[ip-address]/[URI-syntax]" -vcodec libx264 -vb 150000 -g 60 -vprofile baseline -level 2.1 -acodec aac -ab 64000 -ar 48000 -ac 2 -vbsf h264_mp4toannexb -strict experimental -f mpegts udp://127.0.0.1:10000?pkt_size=1316
