Did you made a stream using FME or Tricaster but the recorded video is not playable? Then you must be aware of the following:
Are you changing FME settings? You must know the following important situation:
- by default FME is using the VP6 codec
- H264 codec — videos are saved in mp4 format
- VP6 codec — videos are saved in flv format
By default, autorecording settings is set to APPEND recordings at 5 minutes
If a user start to broadcast using VP6 (default setting in FME), autorecord is on and the recording is saved, change to H264 and start recording again (in less than 5 minutes) the result will be an APPEND video from mp4 and flv, which is a broken video.
That’s why we recommend to use the H264 codec.
Also when using the FME or Tricaster application ot broadcast, you should modify the Append option to Never Append on autorecord settings area.
