ADDED: Add SRT (Secure Reliable Transport) to Video Stream In/Out to Enable Streaming over Internet

@nettoyeur Hey thanks, I wasn’t aware of that actually. I will add some additional information to the documentation.

edit: I updated to the latest experimental build and got it working. I’ll have to play with it to see if I can improve the latency. thanks

When will Video In CHOP be supported?

I’ve been playing with SRT within a video streaming in CHOP. I grab a window using ffmpeg and send it locally via SRT

ffmpeg -f gdigrab -framerate 30 -draw_mouse 0 -i title=“Video Window” -vcodec libx264 -preset ultrafast -crf 17 -pix_fmt yuv422p -tune zerolatency -f mpegts -mode listener -transtype live -tlpktdrop 1 srt://127.0.0.1:6666

Then I just add the SRT url in the video streaming in CHOP. Some observations:

Which ever application is the caller has to do that first, it seems. The listener seems to have to be last in the chain of events.

The latency locally is around a second locally… But this depends on a lot of things. on a personal note, I need something probably as close to real time as possible. I’m only wanting to share a window into TD. This thread seems to say that SRT may not be any better for me than UDP.

both protocols seem very very tempermental. for real time video streaming. Not sure I’d want to rely on it for a performance.
