Streaming changed in version 2.2


I’ve been using version 2.0.7 for streaming to a Wowza. This worked fine, but when I upgrade to version 2.2, all the settings seem to have changed. I see a couple of posts on this forum, but none of them seem to have a resolution.

Here’s the settings that I currently use in version 2.0.7:

-vcodec libx264 -preset fast -crf 22 -vf scale=720x480,format=pix_fmts=yuv420p -x264opts bitrate=1808:vbv-maxrate=1808:vbv-bufsize=61 -strict -2 -acodec aac -b:a 192k -af aresample=44100 -f flv

What would be the equivalent of this in 2.2?




Server 2.2 updated with newer version of ffmpeg and ffmpeg parameters is different in newer builds so try with

rtmp://******/Playout/Playout-stream -codec:v libx264 -preset:v fast -crf:v 22 -filters:v scale=720x480,format=yuv420p -b:v 1808k -maxrate:v 1808k -bufsize:v 61k -codec:a aac -b:a 192k -ar:a 44100 -format flv


Thanks noumaan,

The response is:
Unused option filters=scale=720x480,format=yuv420p:v

Wowza receives a stream, but there appears to be nothing in it.


Check with -filter:v


It doesn’t show me the error anymore and the stream is registered in Wowza, but it appears to be black.


I’m using latest version with UDP/TCP and it’s working fine. I didn’t test it with wowza or rtmp.
I think someone here was talking about this black stream issue.

Have you solved this issue?


Try without -vcodec libx264. I mean you don’t specify video codec.
