Recording video with ffmpeg for downloading to Android tablet - corrupted video.
I was talking with Carl Zwanzig - thanks Carl for the advice about message
posting. Instead of having to go to the stackoverflow question I'm going to
post it here. I'm just posting this new question to not overlap on the
previous question and to provide all the information needed to answer the
question and hopefully to get more input from the mailing list.
Also some other information - Followed some advice about finding the
version number in ffmpeg. My ffmpeg version number is N-95202-g2a546fb7d5.
A look at the commit showed that they were being made currently - October
2019. However there was no snapshot on this page -
http://git.videolan.org/?p=ffmpeg.git&h=2a546fb7d5. I'm just saying this to
ensure that I have the latest version of ffmpeg. What follows is the
information that Carl suggested to give.
$1 just refers to the url i'm fetching. A bit about that - i'm needing
ffmpeg to record. This is not a streaming command. The current system uses
another program for doing the streaming. What i need from this command is
to be able to fetch the file that is being recorded. I'm setting up a video
stream by which I can download a video into the Android gallery, so that I
can play it back later. I have a problem with playing the video back from
gallery. The same problem arises when trying to view the url in a
videoview. Video information from ffmpeg displays this.
