ffprobe reliability

Vaidas Kascėnas
Hi, all,

I've been using ffprobe to find new IPTV streams on my provider
(multicast) network but I'm having trouble because ffprobe seems to be
flaky.

I'm doing a bunch of 'ffprobe -show_programs -show_streams <url>' and
every time I seem to get different lists of detected streams - ones
that get picked up in one scan fail in the next one.

I do understand that the streams are not ideal flows of packets
happening in a vacuum but I'd still like to improve the functioning of
my script and minimize the false-negatives.

Does anyone have any ideas how I could improve that?

Best regards,
Vaidas

You could use ffmpeg -i with a large probesize (and / or analyzeduration)
