This is rather a simple question, but I cannot find the answer. I need to stream from a capture device to a server, and then have FFMPEG on the server re-code the stream suitable for HLS.
But how do I do this? I looked at Flash Media Live Encoder and VLC and ffserver but cannot really get my handle on how this should work. Basically it just seems to me I need a program to sent to a server, which accepts the stream (and maybe some user authentication) and then makes the stream available for use. I already have a system that takes files and encodes them for HLS, so then I can just as input parameter point to this application on the local server to take the stream and start encoding.
edit: it is really only the step to accept e.g. a rtmp connection and make that available to FFMPEG on the same server. I was hoping that e.g. ffserver could do that, but I don't think so.
