Re: FreeStreamCoder Software to Generate Mpeg-TS Streams >> soon V2.72

Post by F1CJN_alain » Fri Oct 15, 2021 9:23 pm

Hi all

On my desktop PC both "F1EJP-FreeStreamCoder-v02.52.exe" and "IPTV-F1EJP-OBS-v01.16.bat" are running well.
On my laptop (I5 9300 and Nvidia GTX 1660 TI) only "IPTV-F1EJP-OBS-v01.16.bat" is running fine during hours. With FSC I can't get the green light.
Both programs are used in Nvidia mode.

Why ? how is made the test for the green light ?

Bonjour Alain,

Difficult to know each problem but it may be a conflict between the 2 ffmpeg versions installed and if Windows system variables have been declared.
With the old script the path to ffmpeg is: C:\ffmpeg\bin\ffmpeg.exe
With FreeStreamCoder: C:\F1EJP\ffmpeg\bin\ffmpeg.exe
Some OM have already had this problem and may be able to confirm.

Hello,

Here is the new version 2.73 (I did not release the 2.72)

> Added GPU support for AMD (Radeon) graphics cards >> I need your test feedback to know if OK
> Improvement in low bit rates by reducing the bit rates occupied by the DVB tables (periodicity)
> We can go down to a very low bit rate of around 59kb / s which allows transmissions in DVB-S2 SR25 or SR20 without audio.
> We can now go up to 8M bandwidth in DVB-T (31Mb / s)
> The choice of 16/9 resolutions has also been increased
> Addition for test of mpeg2 (H262) in soft or hard coding for the INTEL GPU
> Added DVB PID and SID settings

CAUTION for data rates greater than 1Mb / s, a powerful processor is required
If your processor reaches 100% then ffmpeg may crash.
You can do this easily with OBS + FreestreamCoder and Antivirus (you can temporarily disable it)

Thank you again for participating in the test returns

Hello Dominique

In my laptop:
- I cleared all my old ffmpeg drawers in C:/
- I cleared the C:/F1EJP drawer
- I install the new 2.73 version and re input all my parameters
And it runs fine

Thanks a lot

Dominique; I wanted to thank you for the latest release of your FreeStreamCoder; 2.73. I am using it with MPEG 2, at 4.167 M/s on my local repeater, GB3UD.

In the past, I have had a major issue with OBS/FFMPEG/Portsdown 4 where static pictures had some breakup. The same pictures sent directly from the Portsdown were perfect. I have spent weeks trying to get the FFMPEG scripts correct, but have never managed to solve the problem. This evening I have installed V2.73, set up the config, and have perfect pictures on my local repeater. I still need to play around to decide whether it is better to use software or Intel hardware encoding, but that is fine tuning.

Many thanks

Does FFMPEG support HE AAC? If so, is it possible to add this to your software?

Have 2.73 working on MPEG2/4.167 M/S using soft encoding. Absolutely fine. I have tried to use the "Intel" encoding, at the moment without success. Is there a particular level of Intel chip set that is needed for this? Alternative is that I perhaps get a NVIDIA graphics card for the PC, if they are even available at the moment with the current chip shortages?

Any advice welcome.

Intel encoding is only in recent CPUs, yours looks like it might be too old - depends https://www.intel.co.uk/content/www/uk/ ... ssors.html

Thanks for the information Mike. Just had a look for my exact CPU and, from the links you sent me, it would appear that it has Intel's HD Grapics 530; the first generation to do so.

Good news than. In that case it ought to work. However I tried it on my PC with a 9th generation CPU and it doesn't work in H265. It works with the Nvidia GPU though. Intel works with H264. Perhaps a specific driver is required to enable it for H265?
