I have latest image on my rpi and I'm attempting to set up the new streamer for gb3ft and I have the new credentials etc, but when I follow this guide :
and start / reboot the constant streamer nothing appears on the streamer website plus I get this in the terminal:
after crashing in the hour after 07 o'clock
or sometimes this
after crashing in the hour after 08 o'clock
I also note that when I do the below it then asks me for the stream key again
Enter your stream name (callsign) in lower case, followed by a hyphen and then the 6 character stream key. For example g8gkq-abcxyz
Press enter to get back to the main menu.
So I've tried entering just the callsign with no hyphen key and then entered the key when it asks for it - still no joy.
Any pointers as to what I've done wrong ?
I have selected streamer in output type but also tried stream to batc.tv as I wasn't sure which to use !
Could it be that the original streamer which is still on line is causing problems ?
Do I need to open any ports on my firewall ?
All seemed to go ok, but still got the same errors when attempting to run the streamer - clearly I'm missing something here
Any ideas as to what I maybe doing wrong ?

yep - looking at the new streaming site and I get the same problem with both GB3FT and my callsign G4WIM.
I'm trying to stream HTML5 but may give Flash a try later.
I've also just built the development version and get the same results - so either my credentials are wrong or I'm doi ng something wrong or even possibly both !
the image you have could be updated on line to the latest version if it needs it - or you could build your own image as the instructions are very clear and easy to follow in the wiki.
I have revised the Wiki page: https://wiki.batc.org.uk/Streaming_to_b ... spberry_Pi which now gives step-by-step instructions to setting up the Portsdown to stream with the new streamer.
- You MUST have the latest software version, so update before you do anything else
- You MUST follow the Portsdown build and streamer set up instructions EXACTLY
- The only video sources that work for streaming are PiCam, EasyCap and Static Test Card
- You cannot stream from the Portsdown in HD reliably. However 576p 16:9 does work
- You should test the stream in manually switched mode before trying any of the boot-up (automatic) modes
- Don't forget to enable your stream on your Account Dashboard on the BATC Website
