More detail about webcam support and limitations on this Wiki page: https://wiki.batc.org.uk/Portsdown_Webcams
I have also fixed the Pluto EasyCap 16:9 capability that I broke in the last release.
Thanks to G4BVK for loan of yet another C920 example, and to G4KLB and HB9DUG for testing the C930e and the C525.
Please report any new bugs here.
My setup necessitates an HDMI input to the streamer and/or Portsdown 4 but I have found converters or the LKV device to be flaky at best. I could use SDI but that just adds issues.
The problem is that each new device needs configuring for each output mode.
The LKV373 will stream perfectly to the BATC Streamer if you set it to output 720p. It downconverts from 1080p very nicely. I then use this script on the RPi 4, which you will need to customise for your stream:
Code: Select all
#! /bin/bash LKVUDP=188.8.131.52 LKVPORT=5004 STREAM_URL=rtmp://rtmp.batc.org.uk/live STREAM_KEY=callsign-keykey /home/pi/hdmi/ffmpeg -thread_queue_size 2048 -fifo_size 229376 \ -i udp://"$LKVUDP":"$LKVPORT" \ -c:v h264_omx -b:v 1024k -r 25 \ -codec:a aac -b:a 128k \ -f flv $STREAM_URL/$STREAM_KEY
This is the script that I use to stream the BATC QO-100 net every Thursday night and it has been very reliable.
Hope that helps
I will give it a go after as soon as I get a free moment, I have to repair both my analogue and digital equipment as it fell while being stored ahead of a demonstration.
I am still having a few issues with my C920.
I can see it in the preview but when I go to transmit, I get a very short flash from it, but no picture.
I know the Portsdown can see it because it is there in preview and in info screen (with H264 coding from Webcam).
Regards and 73s
What Portsdown version (4 or 2020) and software version (2021xxxxx) are you using? All on the info screen.
