Hello,

Does anyone have advice or suggestions on the best way to create compliant MPEG-2 transport streams for use in the OCAP RI? I haven't had much success using either FFMPEG or tsmuxer.

Thanks!

Matt

Thank you, Andrea! I was able to create transport streams with the OpenCaster tool.

Unfortunately, I was also blocked because I didn't realize the RI required that path names to the MPG files have no spaces. I initially had the videos on my desktop, and they would not play back in the RI due to spaces in the path name. After I moved the videos to a location with no spaces, they played back fine.

Thanks!

Matt

Hi,

we do have an open source project that could help you developing these transport streams, its called OpenCaster: http://www.avalpa.com/the-key-values/15-free-software/33-opencaster

go get it and give it a spin. it's free, as freedom! :-)

it actually works in the european (DVB MHP) scenario, but it should not be too difficult to tweak if for the OCAP environment. they are quite similar IMHO. this could be a professional service.

hope it helps you.

bye

Thank you, Andrea. I was able to create some DVB compatible stream with the OpenCaster tool.

Unfortunately, I was also blocked because I didn't realize that the pathname to the MPG file could not contain spaces. I had the transport streams on my desktop, and that was causing them to not show up in the RI. Once I moved the streams to a location without spaces, the videos played just fine.

Thanks,

Matt
