Thread: nDVR content to MP4 file

  1. #1

    Default nDVR content to MP4 file

    Hi there ... I'm working on a project where nDVR is used for checking of ad campaigs on a live TV station. With playlist delegate, users can check different times of the nDVR recording for that.
    I'm wondering if there's a way to convert a piece of nDVR content into an MP4 file, even if it's through a different application.
    The scenario would be like following. I've 24 hs of nDVR, I playback from 10:00 AM to 10:30 AM ... I found an issue and I want that to be archived for audit, so I tell Wowza to convert or playback that video from 10:00 to 10:30 but the output instead of been streamed, to be recorded as a MP4 file. Is that doable within Wowza, or should I start thinking on an external module for it?
    Actually, it'd be better to do it from Wowza itself, if I don't need to do a regular playback, but a file generation as it'd be faster (I don't need to wait 30 mins for the 30 mins playback of the example)

    Thanks

    Being able to convert .mp4a and .mpfv files created by nDVR into a .mp4 file is a feature that we are considering for a future release. No release date set yet.

    To solve this now, in your Application.xml, you can use StreamType "live-record" coupled with configuration for nDVR. This will provide both the ability to play/pause/rewind/resume while recording live through nDVR and also have the recording in .mp4 format for on demand playback later once the recording is completed. For more control, you can use the Live Stream Record Module instead of StreamType "live-record".
