URGENT - mencoder and rtsp://

Recommended Posts

My GF's dad will be on national TV tonight .. I need to be able to record it...

The TV channel itself has a web page with streaming asf...

 

http://jt.france3.fr/soir3/index-fr.php?jt=0&taille=1

I can't see anything...???

 

However we have TV over ATM and my ISP streams the channels in rtsp://

I can record it in mencoder with for instance...

mencoder -o fr3.avi -oac mp3lame -of avi -ofps 15 rtsp://mafreebox.freebox.fr/freeboxtv/stream?id=202

 

(stream id being the stream for that channel)...

This uses huge amounts of space and I don't wanna run out... (the segment is 30 mins)...

Any and all ideas ???

The above wmv stream works for me fine in VLC.

 

If you still want to dump it with mplayer, if the computer has some processor power, set a different encoder for the output. mp4, Xvid or h246 might work?

 

If you have enough ram to fit the whole video, make a ramfs, mount ramfs -t ramfs /some/place and dump it there, then copy it off later. Alternatively, just make a heap of space free, i'm sure you can spare a few gigs somewhere?

 

Take a look at VLC too, it's great for streaming stuff, and has a good GUI.
