Using Xuggler/FFmpeg encoding with Wowza

I got FFMPEG working on LINUX publishing it to the Wowzaserver with something like;

ffmpeg -i /dev/video0 -qscale 1 -r 25 -vcodec libx264 -vpre fastfirstpass -b 636k -aspect 4:3 -s 640x480 -ar 44100 -ab 64k -async 1 -g 6 -f flv -threads 2 rtmp://ip/app/camera

Now i want to try to authenticate the publishing side to the server. I got it working with Flash Media Encoder (windows) with the following application config:


and the


This is working fine under windows; a popup appears and i can start publishing the stream after giving the credentials.

Now i want to pass the authentication parameters with FFMPEG in Linux to Wowza, so i can authenticate the publishing side under linux. Is there a way to do this?

Thanks for thinking with me, but it doesnt seem to work. I got the error:

“pipe:: Unknown format”

When I hit google with that error, i notice that i`m not the only one with that error lol :smiley:

This works for me:

dvgrab -f raw -noavc - |LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$XUGGLE_HOME/lib ffmpeg -i - -f dv1394 -s 500x375 -r 10 -ar 22050 -ab 32k -ac 1 -b 750K -f flv rtmp://

Hello guys,

I am facing a problem concerning mobile videos. Xuggler can’t convert videos made by phone camera. Please could some one give me a hint?

I am havving the same issue as Thijsie.

Has anyone passed the authentication parameters with FFMPEG in Linux to Wowza using ModuleRTMPAuthenticate module?
