I want to stream video from webcam by http live. I found that souphttpclientsink plugin can do this.

But when I run this command:
gst-launch-1.0 videotestsrc ! avenc_mpeg4 ! mpegtsmux ! souphttpclientsink location=

I got this error:
GstPipeline:pipeline0/GstSoupHttpClientSink:souphttpclientsink0: Could not write to HTTP URI
gstsouphttpclientsink.c(728): gst_soup_http_client_sink_render (): /GstPipeline:pipeline0/GstSoupHttpClientSink:souphttpclientsink0:
error: 4 Cannot connect to destination (

How to fix this problem?

Did you solved this ? You need an HTTP streaming server running at the location. I'm trying to do the same, but I did not yet find a working solution. – Tim Autin Apr 29 '14 at 9:10
I use nginx-rtmp, but since gstreamer 1.2 it include hlssink element, try to use it. – victor1234 Apr 29 '14 at 16:32
