HDMI IN Streamer

Android TV app for streaming HDMI input of Zidoo X9S and Zidoo X8 compatible TV boxes with ffmpeg.

Installation

Running

  • Start app from menu
  • Press menu button and edit and confirm all settings
  • Start streaming by pressing Play/Pause button on remote

Configuration

  • Valid ffmpeg commands:
  • streaming to network in MPEG-TS:
ffmpeg -i - -codec:v copy -codec:a copy -bsf:v dump_extra -f mpegts udp://[IP]:1234
  • streaming to web (e.g. YouTube):
ffmpeg  -i - -strict -2 -codec:v copy -codec:a aac -b:a 128k -f flv rtmp://a.rtmp.youtube.com/live2/[Stream name/key]

Compilation

Open in Android studio and compile as usual.

Features

  • streaming as MPEG-TS to network (unicast/multicast)
  • streaming in FLV format to RTMP server (e.g. Youtube)
  • no need for intermediate recording file - thus no length limit
  • streaming runs in background
  • HDMI out is usable as passthrough

TODO

  • automatic download of needed ffmpeg binary on first start
  • automatic restart of ffmpeg after network/encoding failure
