Streaming to IPTV from camcorder


Recommended Posts

This is only tangentially connected to Emby, but I thought maybe I could find some help here anyway.

I have an old analog camcorder hooked up to a Raspberry Pi. I use ffmpeg to pick up the raw video stream and convert it to an RTMP stream, like so:

ffmpeg -f v4l2 -video_size 640x480 -i /dev/video0 -c:v libx264 -preset ultrafast -vf eq=gamma=1.5:saturation=1.3 -listen 1 -f flv rtmp://

Then I set up a new "channel" in the IPTV extension as RTMP with the rtmp: URL listed above. This works fine except for two things: 1) I can't pause or rewind; and 2) when I stop the stream the ffmpeg process exits.

Not sure what to do about this. Should I put some sort of intermediate RTMP server in-between them, or are there some more esoteric ffmpeg flags I could use, or am I just going about this the wrong way completely? I'd really appreciate any advice or pointers anyone might have.
