    Default FFmpeg as live encoder and HEVC ? no playback..


    I'm using FFmpeg for a project as a live encoder to send my video (sample.mp4 for example) to Wowza and then play the stream on VLC.

    I’ve made it for AVC without any trouble, but for HEVC i have several problems…

    Here’s my ffmpeg line :
    ffmpeg -re -i myFile -c:v libx265 -preset fast -x265-params crf=23 -strict experimental -f mpegts udp://
    On Wowza, i see input bytes in the "incoming streams” menu but I cant do any playback using the media players (black screen). Does Wowza have a player that could play HEVC ? Or maybe my ffmpeg command is false…

    On VLC, i open my AVC network stream with :

    rtmp://wowza server:1935/live/

    No idea how to do this with HEVC. I try :


    It doesnt work...

    I dont want to use DivX or the transcoder Addon.

    Thank you very much for your help!

    This was dealt with in ticket #129658.

    As Denis discovered, there currently appears to be an issue with DivX web player and HEVC streams as reported here.
