UC: Firstly, Thanks for all your useful modules.
I'm having trouble with getting the FFMPEG flv encode working.
FLV::echo_ffmpeg_test(); outputs "FFMPEG is installed on your server and working properly. Code: "
I know that it finds it, because on the server Windows Task Manager shows ffpmeg running, but it stalls during the encode. CPU resources shows it runs, then stalls. I eventually have to end the process manually in the task manager.
My FLV has a very small filesize (which ends up being about 1 seconds of video). If I copy-and-paste the command out of the ffmpeg_log.txt into a CMD box, the encode runs fine. The only thing I see in the log that might be an issue is "WARNING: The bitrate parameter is set too low. It takes bits/s as argument, not kbits/s".
Is there a specific version of ffmpeg that's recommended? I've tried the latest and greatest Static version, as well as some older versions I had for other sites I've used ffmpeg. Same results.
Have any suggestions on where to look for issues?
Thanks in advance,
EDIT: (I accidentally deleted my original reply)
I've resolved my issue by using shell_exec instead of proc_open for the ffpmeg execution (editing line ~72 of FLV.php). I doubt this is ideal.
Any ideas of consequences or a proper fix would be appreciated. :)
