Transcoding HLS (applehttp, m3u8) via Serviio

Hey Guys,
Love Serviio, use it for everything.

One issue I'm running in to. When trying to load an M3U8 playlist file in to the "Live stream" part of the libary, I can see it on my PS3 or XBOX, I press it, it plays for under a minute, then freezes and crashes.

It works so well until it crashes too, any input would help.

Here's a log

Not too sure what I should be looking for though.

I am also having this same issue. Playback is perfect up until it stops and replaying yields a network connection error. Any input is greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.

Re: Transcoding HLS (m3u8) via Serviio

Nobody has the slightest clue? Using my Samsung ES8000 series, it will play for about 15 seconds, then Serviio will disconnect from the TV completely, at first I thought it may be my network, but on several different internet providers/networks the same thing happends, on any device.

What could possibly be caushing this? I've tried updating to a new FFMpeg with no luck either, stumped.

Re: Transcoding HLS (applehttp, m3u8) via Serviio

bumping this because it is driving me insane.

I have tried updating ffmpeg, i have tried messing with the profiles, i have tried messing with application-profiles.

I got something in logs I think that can help

I'm not sur ewhy it's reading it as a WMV (is that what it is transcoding to?) - The file has a bitrate of 3200k - not sure if that means much.

If you can help me with this you will be a god amongst men.

Re: Transcoding HLS (applehttp, m3u8) via Serviio

Your m3u8 stream is an "applehttp/h264/aac" format not supported by your XBOX renderer (idem PS3 or Samsung).
So Serviio/ffmpeg will transcode to WMVHIGH_FULL format supported by your XBOX device.

The ffmpeg command line seems good :
"C:\Program Files\Serviio\bin\\..\lib/ffmpeg.exe" -analyzeduration 10000000 -threads auto -i "http://67.213.218.185/vod/HSTV15_02052013/PREMIUM_HSTV_15HD.m3u8?token=ES/2n1GVzVma+wFjWYmLn8MUEX4rKFBc1nafID+peI6nyB1MI1GLOdwLLWu6SUorE9YxEIoN0Xouy6+SbTX2iA==" -y -copyts -c:v wmv2 -b:v 15360k -maxrate:v 15360k -bufsize:v 15360k -r 30000/1001 -g 15 -c:a wmav2 -b:a 112k -ac 2 -map 0:0 -map 0:1 -sn -f asf pipe:

The 3200k is a high bitrate for a live stream and I don't know if your cpu system support such load (we have to check the ffmpeg fps process value).

If you can try the command line locally and check the ffmpeg output log (you probably need to rebuild token), we probably find error or fps value.

Re: Transcoding HLS (applehttp, m3u8) via Serviio

Thanks for the answer!

Running that command locally, scrolls a bunch of unidentified characters and freezes cmd prompt.

System specs are:

Windows 8
Intel Core i7 3770k
32GB ram
256GB SSD Vector

I think the system should be good enough to handle the transcode :)

I've posted a screenshot of CMD output http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/9/ffmpegv.gif/

Thanks for all of your help.

change the pipe: at the end to a file path (to store the stream on the drive rather than pushing it to stdout)

I don't know what this...ffmpeg problem, you have to contact ffmpeg support forum.

I'm not too sure it's an ffmpeg issue, although running that command in ffmpeg and trying to strip it, still returns the same.

It then freezes (so the file length is 15 seconds, then it stops, which is exactly the behavior when using Serviio)

The Roku somehow manages to succesfully transcode HLS in to someting playable.

Why are you talking about Roku h264 encoding option ??

The above ffmpeg command transcode m3u8 HLS stream to asf output format, but it seems that the process crash arround 15s.
Then contact ffmpeg support forum.

You can try with the latest ffmpeg/windows build (make a backup of the serviio ffmpeg version) : http://ffmpeg.zeranoe.com/builds/

Re: Transcoding HLS (applehttp, m3u8) via Serviio

I think my post viewtopic.php?f=5&t=9345 might have a bearing on the problem in this thread.

I think there's a lack of robustness in ffmeg combined with serviio. Most of the problem seems to be in ffmpeg, and serviio could probably do nothing more about it than being very accurate in the args to ffmpeg, and possibly do like rtmpdump used to do, keep track of where ffmpeg failed and restart ffmpeg from that point. If that can even be done with HLS and HDS.

I haven't - but it does seem like an issue with FFMpeg. Hopefully it gets fixed soon.

Re: Transcoding HLS (applehttp, m3u8) via Serviio

I would suggest, if possible, that people submit a bug report to ffmpeg (where applicable) as they might not be aware of the particular issue one is having. I don't have a concrete example that I can provide them that I can defintely say is an ffmpeg problem.

Does ffplay.exe play the stream/s no problems? I downloaded this with the Zeranoe ffmpeg binary package. It might be a good test to see if it's an ffmpeg problem.

What about VLC?
