  1. Hi cats

    please I wonder


    my camera is becomed a ftp site so that files are

    ftp://192.168.0.18/Clip/C0001.MXF

    ftp://192.168.0.18/Clip/C0002.MXF

    ftp://192.168.0.18/Clip/C0003.MXF

    ftp://192.168.0.18/Clip/C0004.MXF

    etc..

    Can I tell to ffmpeg that it have to directly open the files in camera without download (get) .mxf files in my local pc?


    for example:
    Code:
    ffmpeg -i ftp://192.168.0.18/Clip/C0001.MXF -vcodec etc...
    but it don't work

  5. mmm useful thanks

    but it strange that ffmpeg report: "invalid data found when processing input" even if i try to download the C0002.mxf and put on c:\

    so that I have c:\c0002.mxf and if I do:

    Code:
    ffmpeg -i c:\c0002.mxf etc...
    it works well

    but via ftp I get alwais the "invalid data found when processing input" error

    Is there a way to resolve? thanks

    please consider that the camera, as ftp, does not allow to anyone to write data on his xdcam disc. But in this case ffmpeg have only to read, not to write, so that I think the "invalid data found when processing input" is not related to the impossible of write on the camera-disk

    a. using a higher loglevel (https://www.ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg-all.html#toc-Generic-options) might help getting additional info about what is causing the problem.
    b. this will probably not work with linked mxf files (mxf files which link to other resources)
