ffmpeg keeps dying

Sat Jun 30, 2012 2:21 pm

Hey Everyone,

It's my first time playing with Arch, and I'm trying to run a command that ran on raspbian fine.
I'm trying to stream my webcam out to my phone with this command, but ffmpeg keeps dying

Code: Select all

ffserver -f /root/ffsvmj.conf & ffmpeg -v 5 -r 1 -s 160x120 -f video4linux2 -i /dev/video0 -r 1 http://localhost:81/webcam.ffm
There's no error message or anything, it just returns to the prompt.
Sometimes it dies straight away, sometimes it takes a few minutes, but always dies.

Any ideas on what I should be checking / changing ?

have you tried use the comand without -v 5. If you read ffmpeg documentation you see this " -v loglevel" and if you put 5 you only see warning mesage.

If i'm wrong please correct me.
