Thread: nDVR Window to MP4

  1. #1

    Default nDVR Window to MP4

    Hi there, I know it is not possible to convert .ismv files to mp4 because of custom atoms etc and LiveRecord is recommended. However, what if the nDVR has a window of 2 hours (that automatically deletes anything prior to the window), but a user decides he wants to "persist" this temporary 2 hour recording. It is obviously not possible to use LiveRecord addon, since the 2 hours of content has already been aired and is not on disk in any format other than ismv. Perhaps the system could, in response to user request backup the directory with all the ismv files, but the ismv bundle of files has not been gracefully stopped resulting in "buffering..." being seen when the video is played. As a result it would be wonderful to be able to modify the ismv bunch of files so that the snapshot can gracefully be streamed at a subsequent time.

    Take a look at the Playlist Request section of the nDVR guide:

    Well, that code allows you to retrieve video corresponding to a range of times. What we have is an auto-delete (after the time window) and want the user to "archive" video only when specifically requested. Essentially this would require something like server side code that sees the request and archives or does a backup of video corresponding to the range of timings it receives. Essentially server-side, api based archival of a playlist that would otherwise be deleted when the "window" ends on the ndvr.

    Wowza does not have that capability.
