hlssink and openh264

Jerry Geis-2
Hello 

When I use the videotestsrc line:
gst-launch-1.0 videotestsrc is-live=true ! openh264enc ! mpegtsmux  
        ! hlssink playlist-root=http://IP \
          location=/var/www/html/hlssink.%05d.ts \
          playlist-location=/var/www/html/playlist.m3u8
I can play the videotestsrc... cool

So I thought I would change that to an actual file.
gst-launch-1.0 filesrc location=movie.mov ! openh264enc ! mpegtsmux  
        ! hlssink playlist-root=http://IP \
          location=/var/www/html/hlssink.%05d.ts \
          playlist-location=/var/www/html/playlist.m3u8

on the second command I get syntax error

What do I change for videotestsrc (that worked) to use an actual file?
The movie.mov file format is apple quick time.

Thanks,

Jerry

Hello,

You will need to demux, parse and decode the video file before you can re-encode it to h264.

Quick time is a container format. You will also need to know what video codec was used for the file.

Regards,
Rand

ok - I was assuming since videotestsrc was a good source and worked that changing to filesrc was OK also... Apparently not.

So I added decodebin and videoconvert

gst-launch-1.0 filesrc location=movie.mov ! decodebin ! videoconvert ! openh264enc ! mpegtsmux  
        ! hlssink playlist-root=http://IP \
          location=/var/www/html/hlssink.%05d.ts \
          playlist-location=/var/www/html/playlist.m3u8


The pipeline now works, but I do not get anything but black on viewing. Do I still have something wrong ? 
Thanks,

Jerry

If I wait a little longer - instead of a black screen I get 1 still image of the video. Which is a good step.

VLC plays the playlist.m3u8 fine
.ts files are served with the WRONG content-type (I think) The type is text/vnd.trolltech.linguist and it should be video/mp2t (I think)

Do I not have something right? 

my command was:
gst-launch-1.0 filesrc location=movie.mov ! decodebin ! videoconvert ! openh264enc ! mpegtsmux  
        ! hlssink playlist-root=http://IP \
          location=/var/www/html/hlssink.%05d.ts \
          playlist-location=/var/www/html/playlist.m3u8

Thanks

Jerry

insert h264parse between encoder and multiplexer. What could also help is to set a fixed GOP size on the openh264enc element (e.g. 1 second / 30 frames). What you can also try is to swap out openh264enc by x264enc and see if that yields better results.

I am trying to run this command:

gst-launch-1.0 filesrc location=pirates_trailer.mov '!' decodebin '!' videoconvert '!' openh264enc '!' h264parse '!' mpegtsmux '!' hlssink playlist-root=http://192.168.1.8/hlssink location=/var/www/html/hlssink/hlssink.%05d.ts playlist-location=/var/www/html/hlssink/playlist.m3u8
Setting pipeline to PAUSED ...
Pipeline is PREROLLING ...

Missing element: video/x-fluendo-va decoder

WARNING: from element /GstPipeline:pipeline0/GstDecodeBin:decodebin0: Delayed linking failed.
Additional debug info:
./grammar.y(510): gst_parse_no_more_pads (): /GstPipeline:pipeline0/GstDecodeBin:decodebin0:
failed delayed linking some pad of GstDecodeBin named decodebin0 to some pad of GstVideoConvert named videoconvert0

and I get the above error.

I do have fluendo codecs installed.

What can I do about it ?

Jerry

Jerry,

I have seen the "delayed delayed linking failed no more pads error" before. I do not have a general solution for it. It is extremely frustrating.

In your specific case I would recommend a more explicit pipeline where you demux the audio stream and video stream into separate queues and process the audio and video separately. That is come up with a pipeline that does not use decodebin. Also, keep in mind for HLS you are going to need AAC audio.

Here is an example HLS pipeline that works for me.

// HLS Sink example
gst-launch-1.0 -v -e mpegtsmux name=m m. ! queue ! hlssink filesrc location=/home/rdg/data/the_canoe_h265.ts ! tsdemux name=d d. ! queue max-size-buffers=1200 max-size-buffers=0 max-size-time=0 ! h265parse ! mfxhevcdec ! videoconvert ! mfxvpp width=1280 height=720  ! mfxh264enc rate-control=cbr bitrate=1500 insert-aud=true ! "video/x-h264, stream-format=byte-stream, profile=high" ! m. d. ! queue max-size-buffers=1200 max-size-buffers=0 max-size-time=0 ! aacparse ! avdec_aac ! audioconvert ! voaacenc bitrate=128000 ! m.

I want to draw your attention to this part of the pipeline:

! aacparse ! avdec_aac ! audioconvert ! voaacenc bitrate=128000 ! m.

What this does is parse aac audio and then re encode it as aac audio. IIRC, I had to do this to avoid the no more pads error. I was unable to compose a pipeline that did not do the apparently extra work of transcoding AAC audio into AAC audio.

Regards,
Rand
