Hi there, First of all, sorry for being vague, I don't have ffmpeg command line options yet, I'm just trying to know if I'm totally mistaken, or if my idea could be implemented quite safely/easily.
I'm currently thinking of getting rid of YouTube for streaming within the company I work for (because YT consumes so much bandwidth, and you have not guarantee whatsoever about the quality, and even not talking about IP and so on). I could install big (but kind of old aka free) generic X86_64 servers in the server room, and using Kaltura on them, or even buy a fine piece of hardware that would do everything (it would take months to get the agreement), but I'd like to setup a POC first and foremost. I know ffserver has been abandoned, so it's out of the picture. I have lots of tiny and dirt cheap Linux ARM machines that can H.264 encode. I have machines producing content (which could be RAW, or H.264). So I thought of having the content producers multicast thanks to ffmpeg, and the small machines grabbing it, reducing the bitrate/quality, and then broadcasting to whatever machine could handle content delivery to the final user. I'm not so sure that's smart, as most of the video delivery software may want to do the downgrading by themselves. The goal of the POC would be to do most of the work on the edge of the network with ffmpeg (i.e. directly in the conference rooms) so that the server software could be hosted on the simplest, smallest and cheapest server with the simplest software possible to multicast. I suppose there are smarter ways with ffmpeg to get from a 1080p to lesser quality streams than just multicasting, encoding/downgrading, broadcasting to a server, and then multicasting. If you managed to read me until there, would you have any idea or recommandation? Thanks. -- Bruno Verachten _______________________________________________ ffmpeg-user mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://ffmpeg.org/mailman/listinfo/ffmpeg-user To unsubscribe, visit link above, or email ffmpeg-user-requ...@ffmpeg.org with subject "unsubscribe".
