How to creat a mux with ffmpeg .jpg to video (display .jpg webcam) ?

Added by manuel neuer 5 months ago

I want to watch a static webcam (Picture) in TV and tried
pipe:///usr/bin/ffmpeg -i https://www.previval.org/w/images/f/fc/Testbild.jpg -c:a ac3 -f mpegts -mpegts_service_type digital_tv pipe:1
but it does not work. What can I do?

Can you post what it says in the debug log?

and endless so on.... ( something works but I can not see anything)

But what I really am looking for is someone who sets up an own mux and tests it (what might not cost much time) and posts the
correct command line here.

RE: How to creat a mux with ffmpeg .jpg to video (display .jpg webcam) ? - Added by Jay O 5 months ago

I'd suggest trying to get this working in ffmpeg from a terminal prompt first, outside TVHeadend.

When I try to run your command line: ffmpeg -i https://www.previval.org/w/images/f/fc/Testbild.jpg -c:a ac3 -f mpegts -mpegts_service_type digital_tv test_output.ts , I get similar errors.

You should download that jpeg locally and store it on the machine that is running TVH, so that it doesn't have to fetch from the website for every frame.

Then ffmpeg needs to know to loop that jpeg input, and what the framerate should be.

This works for me on the command line, after downloading the jpg:
ffmpeg -loop 1 -framerate 25 -i testbild.jpg -c:a ac3 -f mpegts -mpegts_service_type digital_tv out.ts

It generates an output video with the testbild. Set the bitrate to something reasonable also.

Try something like:
pipe:///usr/bin/ffmpeg -i /home/hts/testbild.jpg -c:a ac3 -f mpegts -mpegts_service_type digital_tv pipe:1

Adjust the .jpg location to match your case.

As I need to view the webcam actually it makes no sense to store a capture on disk.
May be one day anyone will get it to work.
I will regard this thread from time to time...
