OK so I have a situation where (Because of the CoVid) I need to bring in some remote feeds using rtmp (not my choice of protocol), However if the rtmp stream drops out, the RTMP ffmpeg provider freezes, and will not attempt to re-acquire the feed when it returns. Any idea how I can make it attempt to re-connect? Alternatively, i know by re-executing the PLAY command, it will re-acquire the signal, but any idea how I could detect a loss of RTMP or a Frozen ffmpeg Producer? I do have Humans in a MCR to switch on Freeze Alarm, but I would like to fix it before they even notice.
I am using Remote AMCP to control my Caspar’s, and could GPIO some alarms out my main alarming system to send a PLAY command to the relevant Caspar (I have 16 Caspar’s so that loads of GPIO cables, soldering, interface cards and all that old hardware stuff). This is something I juts feel I should be able to solve in software.
Your a brilliant bunch, and I hope somebody has a solution, or at least an Idea I could follow.
Thanks for any ideas in advance?
