Generating Thumbnail(Previews) from Livestream periodically
Hi Dear Wowza Community,:)
i searched a bit about how to generate thumbnails from livestreams every e.g. 30 seconds in the forums. but none of the solution worked for me.
at the moment i have running an external application which connects to every stream, records 1 second(program rtmpdump) and make a thumbnail out of it (program ffmpeg). but it crashes after a while and is not really a good solution.
