Stream Labs SDI

Flussonic Media Server can ingest video and audio directly from Stream Labs SDI capture cards with the support for Video4Linux.

Capturing from Stream Labs SDI cards

To capture video from an SDI card, configure the stream as follows:

stream example {
  input v4l2:// video_device=/dev/video0 audio_device=plughw:1,0;
  transcoder vb=1000k;


The transcoding option external=false is now the default for SDI, HDMI, and other raw video streams, preventing excessive load on the server that occurs with external=true. When transcoding a number of streams on Nvidia NVENC, make sure that this option has the same value for all the streams.
