Talk Abstract

A case study looking at the development of Entropy Wave's E1000 Multi-format Live Encoder. The E1000 takes a live video feed from a variety of sources, processes and encodes the video to WebM, H.264, and Ogg/Theora, and streams to a wide variety of devices and browsers. The E1000 is based on an embedded Linux system that uses GStreamer for media handling, including capture, processing, encoding, and web streaming. The project required creating or improving several GStreamer components, such as HD-SDI and HDMI capture elements, improved video scaling, and an HTTP streaming server framework, much of which is open source. Much humor will be derived from the project's pitfalls, wrong turns, and dead ends.
