Linux Encoders

Post by Dodger57 »

Hello,

Can anyone recommend a Ubuntu capable stream encoder. We are currently running our icecast streams through Win10 machines and the updates/restarts are killing us as far as stream down time. Yes, we've tweaked the OS but they are still problematic. The company we use, Securenet Systems, only offers Windows based Cirrus encoders. I'd love to find a Edcast type encoder that I could run on our Mint machines just for the simplicity and reliably.

I'm currently experimenting with MIXX - but since each station streams both an ACC and mp3 stream I need the ability to do multiple instances.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks!

ffmpeg would do the job, or maybe gstreamer.

Hey thanks!
Unfortunately I'm a bit of a linux rookie so I was hoping for a GUI app, I'm lost with command line tasks. But I'll take a look at both and learn - thanks again!
