Snapshot of live stream every 30 minutes


I am using a wowza streaming cloud to stream an event. The event is going to be streamed for a few months, but we need to restart the stream every day.

I need to take a snapshot of the feed every 30 minutes. Is that possible?

Best regards,


Hi Rune Sandnes,

I will share experiences. May help you?

  1. snapshot to jpg

Use command : ffmpeg Output = stream-name.jpg

2.snapshot to mp4 or flv =

Use Url : Action: Start Recording Segment By Schedule Secment Schedule : */30 * * * * * Stream Format : MP4 Path: /home File Name : ${SourceStreamName}_${SegmentTime}

output = stream-name_2017-05-17-
