Yet Another Newbie Question

config
getting-started
server

#1

Thanks in advance. I am trying to set up a CasparCG server as part of a replacement for a “TV Station in a Box” system that we have used for a dozen years at the Retirement Community where I live. We currently insert our programming on the local cable TV system through a Zycast 4 program HD digital modulator (HDME-4Q). Our programming includes in-house prerecorded productions and movies with music & slides as schedule filler. Our station is run by residents who are volunteers and NOT TV-professionals.

The hardware that we are moving to is spec’ed as follows:

PC = Dell XPS 8700
CPU = Intel Core i7-4770 - 3.4 GHz
RAM = 24 GB Dual Channel DDR3 1600MHz
C-Drive = 256 GB mSATA Solid State Drive
D-Drive = 2TB 7200 rpm Hard Drive
GPU = NVIDIA Geforce GTX 660 1.5G GD DR5
OS = Windows 7 Pro, SP 1 (64 bit OS)
Decklink Mini Monitor 4K (using HDMI playback)

We have successfully used this hardware with 2 different playout software packages. However, those packages were either not robust enough or not stable enough for our purposes. Hence, we are now trying CasparCG.

The active contents of my casparcg.config file are as follows:

=================================================================

With this configuration I can successfully play a video on the CasparCG Screen Console (video and audio are fine). However, when playing the video out the DeckLink you only see the video without any audio. I assume that I have something wrong in the config file, but can’t determine what is wrong. There is a warning and an error in the log file, but they don’t seem to me to be related to my issue. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

#2

Well, that post did not work as I expected. Can someone tell me how to insert the XML and log file correctly into a post?

Thanks.


#3

There is a button </> that you can use to format the XML text.


#4

You need:

<embedded-audio>true</embedded-audio>

In the <decklink> part of the config.


#5

hreinnbeck thanks for that suggestion. I also studied the One Channel Player config file example and tried to go off of that in my config. I now get audio out of the HDMI port of the DeckLink. However, the audio is breaking up (or rather stuttering). Audio is fine on the Screen Console when I include it in the config file. Any ideas on what I have wrong here?

#6

What is the audio sampling rate of that video? It should be 48kHz.


#7

I checked the file. The audio rate is 48kHz. Specs on the file are as follows:

MPEG
Audio: 224 Kbps
48 kHz
16 Bit
Stereo
Video: 29.97 FPS
720 x 480
YUV
6 Mbps
Pixel Aspect Ratio = 0.909
Does that give any clues?

Thanks.
