HTML5 live streaming

The Solution to HTML5 live streaming is


A possible alternative for that:

  1. Use an encoder (e.g. VLC or FFmpeg) into packetize your input stream to OGG format. For example, in this case I used VLC to packetize screen capture device with this code:

    C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe -I dummy screen:// :screen-fps=16.000000 :screen-caching=100 :sout=#transcode{vcodec=theo,vb=800,scale=1,width=600,height=480,acodec=mp3}:http{mux=ogg,dst=127.0.0.1:8080/desktop.ogg} :no-sout-rtp-sap :no-sout-standard-sap :ttl=1 :sout-keep

  2. Embed this code into a <video> tag in your HTML page like that:

    <video id="video" src="http://localhost:8080/desktop.ogg" autoplay="autoplay" />

This should do the trick. However it's kind of poor performance and AFAIK MP4 container type should have a better support among browsers than OGG.
