Thread: Overlays with updates on Windows

  1. #1

    Default Overlays with updates on Windows


    I'm having some problems to get an JPEG Picture which is overlayed on a 720p stream to update itself.
    The issue is most likely that I'm not doing atomic updates of the jpeg-file. That is at least my best guess.

    Below is the Windows/DOS batch file which is called every 5 seconds. This is the rate I want the picture to be update in.
    @echo off
    cd "C:\Program Files (x86)\Wowza Media Systems\Wowza Media Server 3.5.2\content\bord2.stream_tavle"
    if exist snap del snap
    wget --timeout=2 --tries=1
    if not exist snap goto slut
    del tavle.jpg.tmp
    ren tavle.jpg tavle.jpg.tmp
    ren snap tavle.jpg
    I've also added the decode section from the transcoding XML-file
    I have found the details on the wowza forum.

    But nooooo!
    Why doesn't it work??

    If you can send a zip file of your conf/ logs/ and transcoder/ folders to we can look at it in more detail. Do remember to give the last section of your license as well.

    Thank you for your fast reply.
    I have forwarded all files, also including the content, so that you actually can test it for real.

    Fixed in 3.5.2 patch 5!!
    It is not out yet, but coming any moment.

    Thanks to the wowza support team for helping me on this tricky job, which turned out being impossible without a few minor bug fixes.
