I am using the Teradek Vidiu Encoder and Video quality is quite fine, however there are some problems with the Audio.
Every 3-4 minutes there is a drop in the audio of about 5 seconds while the video stream keeps playing on.
I think it comes from missing timecodes in the source stream as also the A/V goes out of sync in HLS clients. RTMP clients are fine with synchronicity but also experience drops.
Unfortunately the Vidiu does not have an option to embed timecode or even set the keyframe interval.
How can I analyze the stream and find out if timecode is embedded and what the keyframe interval is.?
And how can I debug this on the Wowza and maybe tune it.
I used the FMLE before we went to HD streaming via SDI or HDMI and we never had such problems. This free software is better than many hardware encoders.
