Loop input file and output MPEG-TS multicast

$ docker run --rm -v $PWD:/mnt eyevinntechnology/toolbox-loopts IN.mp4 udp://239.0.0.1.1234?pkt_size=1316

where $PWD is your working directory where you have your input file.

The following options are available:

$ docker run --rm -v $PWD:/mnt eyevinntechnology/toolbox-loopts -h
usage: loopts.py [-h] [--workdir WORKDIR] [--framerate FRAMERATE]
                 [--kfinterval KFINTERVAL] [--bitrate BITRATE] [--hevc]
                 [--withtc] [--withaudio] [--nologo] [--useflv]
                 [--multibitrate]
                 inputfile multicast

Loop an MP4 file and output to MPEG-TS multicast

positional arguments:
  inputfile
  multicast

optional arguments:
  -h, --help              show this help message and exit
  --workdir WORKDIR       specify a working directory, default is /mnt
  --framerate FRAMERATE   output framerate (DEFAULT 25fps)
  --kfinterval KFINTERVAL specify keyframe interval (DEFAULT 2 sec)
  --bitrate BITRATE       specify video bitrate in kbps (e.g. 2500)
  --hevc                  use HEVC encoded output
  --withtc                burn in local timecode in video output
  --withaudio             adds a test tone on the audio track
  --nologo                remove logo
  --useflv                use FLV for RTMP output
  --multibitrate          output multiple video bitrates

To test this locally on your computer (Mac + VLC) assuming the file to loop is called IN.mp4 and in your working directory

$ docker run --rm -p 9998:9998/udp -v $PWD:/mnt eyevinntechnology/toolbox-loopts IN.mp4 udp://host.docker.internal:9998?pkt_size=1316 --withtc

Then open VLC with the following network address: udp://@127.0.0.1:9998

Output MPEG-TS over SRT

To use SRT (Secure Reliable Transport) instead of multicast you can run loopts as an SRT listener.

docker run --rm -p 9998:9998/udp -v $PWD:/mnt eyevinntechnology/toolbox-loopts IN.mp4 "srt://0.0.0.0:9998?pkt_size=1316&mode=listener" --withtc

Then open VLC with the following network address: srt://@127.0.0.1:9998

Output FLV over RTMP

To use RTMP instead of multicast you can run loopts and push with RTMP

docker run --rm -it -v $PWD:/mnt eyevinntechnology/toolbox-loopts --useflv IN.mp4 "rtmp://live.twitch.tv/app/live_*****"

Receive MPEG-TS over SRT and restream over multicast

Use the srtrx tool to receive an MPEG-TS stream over SRT (Secure Reliable Transport) and restream over multicast. This can be used in the following scenario:

+-----------+                     +-----------------+                       +------------+
|           |                     |                 |                       |            |
|  SRT Tx   | ===> INTERNET ===>  |  toolbox-srtrx  | ====> MULTICAST ====> | TRANSCODER |
|           |                     |                 |                       |            |
+-----------+                     +-----------------+                       +------------+

Assuming that the SRT Tx is running in listener mode and can be reached on 10.0.110.178:9998 you start the restreamer with the following commmand:

$ docker run --rm -p 1234:1234/udp eyevinntechnology/toolbox-srtrx 10.0.110.178:9998 239.0.0.1:1234

This setup can be emulated by running loopts tool as the SRT Tx and VLC as the transcoder.

$ docker run --rm -p 9998:9998/udp -v $PWD:/mnt eyevinntechnology/toolbox-loopts IN.mp4 "srt://0.0.0.0:9998?pkt_size=1316&mode=listener" --withtc
$ docker run --rm -p 9999:9999/udp eyevinntechnology/toolbox-srtrx 10.0.110.178:9998 host.docker.internal:9999

where 10.0.110.178 is the IP of your computer running the loopts container.

$ docker run --rm eyevinntechnology/toolbox-srtrx -h
usage: srtrx.py [-h] [--listener] [--with-debug] inputaddress outputaddress

Receive MPEG-TS over SRT and restream over Multicast

positional arguments:
  inputaddress
  outputaddress

optional arguments:
  -h, --help     show this help message and exit
  --listener     run as SRT listener
  --passthrough  for low latency skip the unmux and mux step.

Receive RTMP and restream over SRT

The srttx tool can be used to receive a local RTMP stream and restream to an SRT Rx over the Internet.

+------------------+                     +-----------------+                       +------------+
|  Wirecast &      |                     |                 |                       |            |
|  toolbox-srttx   | ===> INTERNET ===>  |  toolbox-srtrx  | ====> MULTICAST ====> | TRANSCODER |
|  <IP-TX>         |                     |  <IP-RX>        |                       |            |
+------------------+                     +-----------------+                       +------------+

On the transmitter side with for example Wirecast as producing the stream first start the srttx tool.

$ docker run --rm -p 1935:1935 eyevinntechnology/toolbox-srttx:0.2.4 input_stream <IP-RX>:9998 --passthrough

Then point the Wirecast / OBS output to rtmp://localhost/live/input_stream

On the receiver side you then run the following:

$ docker run --rm -p 9998:9998/udp -p <MULTICAST-PORT>:<MULTICAST-PORT>/udp eyevinntechnology/toolbox-srtrx --listener --passthrough 0.0.0.0:9998 <MULTICAST>:<MULTICAST-PORT>`
$ docker run --rm eyevinntechnology/toolbox-srttx:0.2.4 -h
usage: srttx.py [-h] [--inputtype INPUTTYPE] [--listener] [--passthrough]
                inputstream outputaddress

Receive RTMP and stream over SRT

positional arguments:
  inputstream
  outputaddress

optional arguments:
  -h, --help     show this help message and exit
  --inputtype INPUTTYPE type of input [rtmp|mpegts], default is rtmp  
  --listener     run as SRT listener
  --passthrough  passthrough input and skip encoding process

MPEG-TS as a source

The srttx tool can also take an MPEG-TS as a source. Instead run the following command on the transmitter side. The receiver side as before.

$ docker run --rm eyevinntechnology/toolbox-srttx:0.2.4 <MULTICAST>:<MULTICAST-PORT> <IP-RX>:9998 --passthrough --inputtype=mpegts

Receive RTMP and restream over Multicast

Use the rtmprx tool to receive RTMP and restream MPEG-TS over multicast if you want to use RTMP as the transport protocol with a live transcoder that for example only supports MPEG-TS multicast.

On the receiver side run the following command:

$ docker run --rm -p 1935:1935 -p <MULTICAST-PORT>:<MULTICAST-PORT>/udp eyevinntechnology/toolbox-rtmprx input_stream <MULTICAST>:<MULTICAST-PORT> --passthrough
$ docker run --rm eyevinntechnology/toolbox-rtmprx -h
usage: rtmprx.py [-h] [--passthrough] [--with-debug] inputstream outputaddress

Receive RTMP and restream over Multicast

positional arguments:
  inputstream
  outputaddress

optional arguments:
  -h, --help     show this help message and exit
  --passthrough  passthrough input and skip encoding process

Render a Mosaic from HLS sources

Use the mosaicts tool to render a 2x2 or 3x3 mosaic of HLS sources.

$ docker run --rm eyevinntechnology/toolbox-mosaicts -h
usage: mosaicts.py [-h] [--port PORT] [--multicast MULTICAST] [--with-debug]
                   layout urlfile

Take multiple HLS sources and render a mosaic in MPEG-TS

positional arguments:
  layout                2x2|3x3
  urlfile               A text file containing URLs to HLS sources. One source
                        per line.

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  --port PORT
  --multicast MULTICAST
                        Use multicast address specified here instead of SRT

To read the list of URLs from STDIN:

$ docker run --rm -i -p 9998:9998/udp eyevinntechnology/toolbox-mosaicts 2x2 - < urls.txt

Pull a live HLS stream and output to multicast TS

Use the hls2ts tool to pull an HLS live stream and output to multicast TS.

$ docker run --rm eyevinntechnology/toolbox-hls2ts -h
usage: hls2ts.py [-h] [--srt] [--bitrate BITRATE] [--with-debug]
                 hlsurl outputaddress

Pull live HLS and output to multicast TS

positional arguments:
  hlsurl
  outputaddress

optional arguments:
  -h, --help         show this help message and exit
  --srt              use SRT as transport protocol
  --bitrate BITRATE  which bitrate to use
  --with-debug

Example:

docker run --rm eyevinntechnology/toolbox-hls2ts:0.1.0 HLSURL <MULTICAST>:<MULTICAST-PORT>

Re-stream SRT to multiple RTMP destinations

Use the srt2rtmp tool to receive an SRT stream and re-stream to multiple RTMP destinations.

Example:

docker run --rm -p 1234:1234/udp eyevinntechnology/toolbox-srt2rtmp:0.1.1 0.0.0.0:1234 <RTMPURL1> <RTMPURL2>

Pull a live HLS stream and output to multiple RTMP destinations

Use the hls2rtmp tool to pull a live HLS stream and re-stream to multiple RTMP destinations.

Example:

docker run --rm eyevinntechnology/toolbox-hls2rtmp:0.1.3 HLSURL <RTMPURL1> <RTMPURL2>

Pull a live HLS stream and output to SRT

Use the hls2srt tool to pull a live HLS stream and make available over SRT.

Example:

docker run -d --restart always -p 1234:1234/udp eyevinntechnology/toolbox-hls2srt:0.1.1 HLSURL 0.0.0.0:1234

Listen for an RTMP stream and output to SRT

Use the rtmp2srt tool to receive an RTMP stream and transmit over SRT.

Example:

docker run --rm -p 1935:1935 -p 1234:1234/udp eyevinntechnology/toolbox-rtmp2srt:0.1.1 <STREAMKEY> <IP>:1234

By deafult in SRT listener mode, to use SRT as a client:

docker run --rm -p 1935:1935 eyevinntechnology/toolbox-rtmp2srt:0.1.0 --caller <STREAMKEY> <IP>:1234

VOD Transcode

Quickly transcode video file to a set of different bitrates.

docker run --rm -v $PWD:/media eyevinntechnology/toolbox-transcode:0.1.0 --framerate 24 videofile-720p.mp4

and it will generate three GOP-aligned MP4 files prepared to be chunked into segments.
