#6372 new defect

Live Streaming - process no longer terminates

Reported by: ethernetweb Owned by:
Priority: important Component: ffmpeg
Version: 3.2.4 Keywords: rtmp
Cc: cheeto_crunch@yahoo.com Blocked By:
Blocking: Reproduced by developer: no
Analyzed by developer: no

Description

Summary of the bug:

Recently installed ffmpeg on a new server (which provided me with a newer version).

Old Version:
ffmpeg version 3.0.2-4~bpo8+1 Copyright (c) 2000-2016 the FFmpeg developers
built with gcc 4.9.2 (Debian 4.9.2-10)

On the old version, the ffmpeg process would stop running if the RTMP stream ceased to publish. Event handlers in our automated software would detect this "end" and proceed to handle it as the code designates.

In the new version, the ffmpeg continues to process and run indefinitely when the input ceases to exist. There also appears to be no way to suggest that the process SHOULD stop if the input ceases to exist. We have spent hours looking for a work-around but nothing is effective in stopping the process when an rtmp input ceases to publish.

How to reproduce:

% /usr/bin/ffmpeg -hide_banner -nostdin -y -threads 2 -i rtmp://localhost/live-test/test -acodec aac -vcodec copy -f flv rtmp://localhost/live-push/test

ffmpeg version 3.2.4-1~bpo8+1 Copyright (c) 2000-2017 the FFmpeg developers
built with gcc 4.9.2 (Debian 4.9.2-10)

Replying to stevenliu:

Thank you for your response.

I've tried that already. All it does is change the rtmp:// protocol to tcp:// and it fails to function.

Please test current FFmpeg git head and provide the command line you tested together with the complete, uncut console output to make this a valid ticket.
