Alternative to ffmpeg for live streams

Is there a way to use something other than ffmpeg to pipe in the video stream data? Or is it possible to do that via plugins?

That would be really cool because you would not only be able to stream non-standard streams in some proprietary format but also use other tools such as rtmpdump. Porting streams from other tools (rtmpgui, xbmc, etc) would also be much easier.

Thanks

Re: Alternative to ffmpeg for live streams

rtmpdump is already being used with ffmpeg, it ffmpeg is configured to use it.

this wiki entry shows what all programs ffmepg is setup for.

Re: Alternative to ffmpeg for live streams

I think what you're referring to is librtmp. It is my understanding that both ffmpeg and rtmpdump make use of this library, however with different implementations.

My question aims to be able to use either tool (not just the library), or any tool for that matter that can output a video stream data.

no serviio is designed around ffmpeg so nothing else can be used.

Re: Alternative to ffmpeg for live streams

Is it too much of a long shot to request this as a new feature?
