Hello, I'm using the ffmpeg library in an application to receive streams from network cameras via RTSP. However, since these cameras are on a network with poor bandwidth (a weak wi-fi connection), I'm having issues where the video feed appears to 'smear' along the bottom of the frame.
I'm confident that the cause of this 'smearing' is RTP packets being dropped by the network and leading to corrupted IDR frames. Unfortunately, using tcp transport with RTSP is not an option as the video is somewhat latency sensitive. Looking over the help pages for my local ffmpeg binary (ffmpeg version 3.4.6-0ubuntu0.18.04.1), I noticed that the h264 decoder has an "enable_er" option that supposedly enables some form of 'error resilience' in the decoder. I have two questions: 1. What does the "enable_er" option of the h264 decoder actually do? 2. Are there any other options available that might help mask corrupted IDR frames? Thank you, Paul Belanger _______________________________________________ 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".
