ffserver - ffserver video server
ffserver [ options
is a streaming server for both audio and video. It supports
several live feeds, streaming from files and time shifting on live feeds. You
can seek to positions in the past on each live feed, provided you specify a
big enough feed storage.

startup. If not explicitly specified, it will read from

instance will listen on some port as specified in the
configuration file. You can launch one or more instances of ffmpeg
send one or more FFM streams to the port where ffserver is expecting to
receive them. Alternately, you can make ffserver
instances at startup.
Input streams are called feeds, and each one is specified by a
"<Feed>" section in the configuration file.
For each feed you can have different output streams in various formats, each one
specified by a "<Stream>" section in the configuration file.

acts as an HTTP server, accepting POST requests from
to acquire the stream to publish, and serving RTSP clients or
HTTP clients GET requests with the stream media content.
A feed is an FFM
stream created by ffmpeg
, and sent to a port
Each feed is identified by a unique name, corresponding to the name of the
resource published on ffserver
, and is configured by a dedicated
"Feed" section in the configuration file.
The feed publish URL is given by:
is the IP address of the machine where
is installed, http_port
is the port number of the HTTP
server (configured through the HTTPPort
option), and feed_name
is the name of the corresponding feed defined in the configuration file.
Each feed is associated to a file which is stored on disk. This stored file is
used to send pre-recorded data to a player as fast as possible when new
content is added in real-time to the stream.
A "live-stream" or "stream" is a resource published by
, and made accessible through the HTTP protocol to clients.
A stream can be connected to a feed, or to a file. In the first case, the
published stream is forwarded from the corresponding feed generated by a
running instance of ffmpeg
, in the second case the stream is read from
a pre-recorded file.
Each stream is identified by a unique name, corresponding to the name of the
resource served by ffserver

In case the stream is associated to a feed, the encoding parameters must be
configured in the stream configuration. They are sent to ffmpeg
setting up the encoding. This allows ffserver
to define the encoding
parameters used by the ffmpeg
The ffmpeg override_ffserver
commandline option allows one to
override the encoding parameters set by the server.
Multiple streams can be connected to the same feed.
For example, you can have a situation described by the following graph:

FFM and FFM2 are formats used by ffserver. They allow storing a wide variety of
video and audio streams and encoding options, and can store a moving time
segment of an infinite movie or a whole movie.
FFM is version specific, and there is limited compatibility of FFM files
generated by one version of ffmpeg/ffserver and another version of
ffmpeg/ffserver. It may work but it is not guaranteed to work.
FFM2 is extensible while maintaining compatibility and should work between
differing versions of tools. FFM2 is the default.

Simply point your browser to the address of the special status stream specified
in the configuration file.
For example if you have:
# Only allow local people to get the status
ACL allow localhost
ACL allow 192.168.0.0 192.168.255.255
then the server will post a page with the status information when the special

You should (after a short delay) see video and hear audio.

You should edit the ffserver.conf
file to suit your needs (in terms of
frame rates etc). Then install ffserver
, write a
script to start them up, and off you go.
You can replay video from .ffm files that was recorded earlier. However, there
are a number of caveats, including the fact that the ffserver parameters must
match the original parameters used to record the file. If they do not, then
ffserver deletes the file before recording into it. (Now that I write this, it
You can fiddle with many of the codec choices and encoding parameters, and there
are a bunch more parameters that you cannot control. Post a message to the
mailing list if there are some 'must have' parameters. Look in ffserver.conf
for a list of the currently available controls.
It will automatically generate the ASX or RAM files that are often used in
browsers. These files are actually redirections to the underlying ASF or RM
file. The reason for this is that the browser often fetches the entire file
before starting up the external viewer. The redirection files are very small
and can be transferred quickly. [The stream itself is often 'infinite' and
thus the browser tries to download it and never finishes.]
* When you connect to a live stream, most players (WMP, RA, etc) want to buffer
a certain number of seconds of material so that they can display the signal
continuously. However, ffserver (by default) starts sending data in realtime.
This means that there is a pause of a few seconds while the buffering is being
done by the player. The good news is that this can be cured by adding a
'?buffer=5' to the end of the URL. This means that the stream should start 5
seconds in the past -- and so the first 5 seconds of the stream are sent as
fast as the network will allow. It will then slow down to real time. This
noticeably improves the startup experience.
You can also add a 'Preroll 15' statement into the ffserver.conf that will add
the 15 second prebuffering on all requests that do not otherwise specify a
time. In addition, ffserver will skip frames until a key_frame is found. This
further reduces the startup delay by not transferring data that will be
It turns out that (on my machine at least) the number of frames successfully
grabbed is marginally less than the number that ought to be grabbed. This
means that the timestamp in the encoded data stream gets behind realtime. This
means that if you say 'Preroll 10', then when the stream gets 10 or more
seconds behind, there is no Preroll left.
Fixing this requires a change in the internals of how timestamps are handled.
Yes (subject to the limitation outlined above). Also note that whenever you
start ffserver, it deletes the ffm file (if any parameters have changed), thus
wiping out what you had recorded before.
The format of the "?date=xxxxxx" is fairly flexible. You should use
one of the following formats (the 'T' is literal):
* YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SS (localtime)
* YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SSZ (UTC)
You can omit the YYYY-MM-DD, and then it refers to the current day. However note
refers to 16:00 on the current day -- this may be
in the future and so is unlikely to be useful.
You use this by adding the ?date= to the end of the URL for the stream. For
All the numerical options, if not specified otherwise, accept a string
representing a number as input, which may be followed by one of the SI unit
prefixes, for example: 'K', 'M', or 'G'.
If 'i' is appended to the SI unit prefix, the complete prefix will be
interpreted as a unit prefix for binary multiples, which are based on powers
of 1024 instead of powers of 1000. Appending 'B' to the SI unit prefix
multiplies the value by 8. This allows using, for example: 'KB', 'MiB', 'G'
and 'B' as number suffixes.
Options which do not take arguments are boolean options, and set the
corresponding value to true. They can be set to false by prefixing the option
name with "no". For example using "-nofoo" will set the
boolean option with name "foo" to false.
Some options are applied per-stream, e.g. bitrate or codec. Stream specifiers
are used to precisely specify which stream(s) a given option belongs to.
A stream specifier is a string generally appended to the option name and
separated from it by a colon. E.g. "-codec:a:1 ac3" contains the
"a:1" stream specifier, which matches the second audio stream.
Therefore, it would select the ac3 codec for the second audio stream.
A stream specifier can match several streams, so that the option is applied to
all of them. E.g. the stream specifier in "-b:a 128k" matches all
An empty stream specifier matches all streams. For example, "-codec
copy" or "-codec: copy" would copy all the streams without
Possible forms of stream specifiers are:
- Matches the stream with this index. E.g. "-threads:1
4" would set the thread count for the second stream to 4.
- stream_type is one of following: 'v' or 'V' for
video, 'a' for audio, 's' for subtitle, 'd' for data, and 't' for
attachments. 'v' matches all video streams, 'V' only matches video streams
which are not attached pictures, video thumbnails or cover arts. If
stream_index is given, then it matches stream number
stream_index of this type. Otherwise, it matches all streams of
- If stream_index is given, then it matches the stream
with number stream_index in the program with the id
program_id. Otherwise, it matches all streams in the program.
- #stream_id or i:stream_id
- Match the stream by stream id (e.g. PID in MPEG-TS
- Matches streams with the metadata tag key having the
specified value. If value is not given, matches streams that
contain the given tag with any value.
- Matches streams with usable configuration, the codec must
be defined and the essential information such as video dimension or audio
sample rate must be present.
Note that in ffmpeg, matching by metadata will only work properly for

- Set the logging level used by the library. Adding
"repeat+" indicates that repeated log output should not be
compressed to the first line and the "Last message repeated n
times" line will be omitted. "repeat" can also be used
alone. If "repeat" is used alone, and with no prior loglevel
set, the default loglevel will be used. If multiple loglevel parameters
are given, using 'repeat' will not change the loglevel. loglevel is
a string or a number containing one of the following values:

- Only show fatal errors. These are errors after which the
process absolutely cannot continue.
- error, 16
- Show all errors, including ones which can be recovered
- warning, 24
- Show all warnings and errors. Any message related to
possibly incorrect or unexpected events will be shown.

- Show informative messages during processing. This is in
addition to warnings and errors. This is the default value.
- verbose, 40
- Same as "info", except more verbose.
- debug, 48
- Show everything, including debugging information.

By default the program logs to stderr. If coloring is supported by the terminal,
colors are used to mark errors and warnings. Log coloring can be disabled
setting the environment variable AV_LOG_FORCE_NOCOLOR
, or can be forced setting the environment variable
. The use of the environment variable NO_COLOR
is deprecated and will be dropped in a future FFmpeg version.
- Dump full command line and console output to a file named
" program-YYYYMMDD-HHMMSS.log" in the
current directory. This file can be useful for bug reports. It also
implies "-loglevel verbose".
Setting the environment variable FFREPORT to any value has the same
effect. If the value is a ':'-separated key=value sequence, these options
will affect the report; option values must be escaped if they contain
special characters or the options delimiter ':' (see the ``Quoting and
escaping'' section in the ffmpeg-utils manual).
The following options are recognized:
- set the file name to use for the report; %p is expanded to
the name of the program, %t is expanded to a timestamp, "%%" is
expanded to a plain "%"
- set the log verbosity level using a numerical value (see

- -cpuflags flags (global)
- Allows setting and clearing cpu flags. This option is
intended for testing. Do not use it unless you know what you're doing.
ffmpeg -cpuflags -sse+mmx ...
ffmpeg -cpuflags mmx ...
ffmpeg -cpuflags 0 ...
Possible flags for this option are:
- Specific Processors
- This option is used to benchmark all available OpenCL
devices and print the results. This option is only available when FFmpeg
has been compiled with "--enable-opencl".
When FFmpeg is configured with "--enable-opencl", the options for
the global OpenCL context are set via -opencl_options. See the
"OpenCL Options" section in the ffmpeg-utils manual for the
complete list of supported options. Amongst others, these options include
the ability to select a specific platform and device to run the OpenCL
code on. By default, FFmpeg will run on the first device of the first
platform. While the options for the global OpenCL context provide
flexibility to the user in selecting the OpenCL device of their choice,
most users would probably want to select the fastest OpenCL device for
This option assists the selection of the most efficient configuration by
identifying the appropriate device for the user's system. The built-in
benchmark is run on all the OpenCL devices and the performance is measured
for each device. The devices in the results list are sorted based on their
performance with the fastest device listed first. The user can
subsequently invoke ffmpeg using the device deemed most appropriate
via -opencl_options to obtain the best performance for the OpenCL
Typical usage to use the fastest OpenCL device involve the following steps.
Run the command:
Note down the platform ID ( pidx) and device ID (didx) of the
first i.e. fastest device in the list. Select the platform and device
using the command:
ffmpeg -opencl_options platform_idx=<pidx>:device_idx=<didx> ...
- -opencl_options options (global)
- Set OpenCL environment options. This option is only
available when FFmpeg has been compiled with "--enable-opencl".
options must be a list of key=value option pairs
separated by ':'. See the ``OpenCL Options'' section in the ffmpeg-utils
manual for the list of supported options.
These options are provided directly by the libavformat, libavdevice and
libavcodec libraries. To see the list of available AVOptions, use the
option. They are separated into two categories:
- These options can be set for any container, codec or
device. Generic options are listed under AVFormatContext options for
containers/devices and under AVCodecContext options for codecs.
- These options are specific to the given container, device
or codec. Private options are listed under their corresponding
For example to write an ID3v2.3 header instead of a default ID3v2.4 to an MP3
file, use the id3v2_version
private option of the MP3 muxer:
ffmpeg -i input.flac -id3v2_version 3 out.mp3
All codec AVOptions are per-stream, and thus a stream specifier should be
attached to them.
Note: the -nooption
syntax cannot be used for boolean AVOptions, use
/ -option 1
Note: the old undocumented way of specifying per-stream AVOptions by prepending
v/a/s to the options name is now obsolete and will be removed soon.
- -f configfile
- Read configuration file configfile. If not specified
it will read by default from /etc/ffserver.conf.
- Enable no-launch mode. This option disables all the
"Launch" directives within the various "<Feed>"
sections. Since ffserver will not launch any ffmpeg
instances, you will have to launch them manually.
- Enable debug mode. This option increases log verbosity, and
directs log messages to stdout. When specified, the CustomLog
option is ignored.
reads a configuration file containing global options and
settings for each stream and feed.
The configuration file consists of global options and dedicated sections, which
must be introduced by "< SECTION_NAME ARGS
a separate line and must be terminated by a line in the form "</
Currently the following sections are recognized: Feed
A line starting with "#" is ignored and treated as a comment.
Name of options and sections are case-insensitive.
An ACL (Access Control List) specifies the address which are allowed to access a
given stream, or to write a given feed.
It accepts the folling forms
- Allow/deny access to address.
ACL ALLOW <address>
ACL DENY <address>
- Allow/deny access to ranges of addresses from
first_address to last_address.
ACL ALLOW <first_address> <last_address>
ACL DENY <first_address> <last_address>
You can repeat the ACL allow/deny as often as you like. It is on a per stream
basis. The first match defines the action. If there are no matches, then the
default is the inverse of the last ACL statement.
Thus 'ACL allow localhost' only allows access from localhost. 'ACL deny 220.127.116.11
18.104.22.168' would deny the whole of network 1 and allow everybody else.
- HTTPPort port_number
- Port port_number
- RTSPPort port_number
- HTTPPort sets the HTTP server listening TCP port
number, RTSPPort sets the RTSP server listening TCP port number.
Port is the equivalent of HTTPPort and is deprecated.
You must select a different port from your standard HTTP web server if it is
running on the same computer.
If not specified, no corresponding server will be created.
- HTTPBindAddress ip_address
- BindAddress ip_address
- RTSPBindAddress ip_address
- Set address on which the HTTP/RTSP server is bound. Only
useful if you have several network interfaces.
BindAddress is the equivalent of HTTPBindAddress and is
- MaxHTTPConnections n
- Set number of simultaneous HTTP connections that can be
handled. It has to be defined before the MaxClients
parameter, since it defines the MaxClients maximum limit.
Default value is 2000.
- MaxClients n
- Set number of simultaneous requests that can be handled.
Since ffserver is very fast, it is more likely that you will want
to leave this high and use MaxBandwidth.
Default value is 5.
- MaxBandwidth kbps
- Set the maximum amount of kbit/sec that you are prepared to
consume when streaming to clients.
Default value is 1000.
- CustomLog filename
- Set access log file (uses standard Apache log file format).
'-' is the standard output.
If not specified ffserver will produce no log.
In case the commandline option -d is specified this option is
ignored, and the log is written to standard output.
- Set no-daemon mode. This option is currently ignored since
now ffserver will always work in no-daemon mode, and is
- Control whether default codec options are used for the all
streams or not. Each stream may overwrite this setting for its own.
Default is UseDefaults. The lastest occurrence overrides previous
if multiple definitions.
A Feed section defines a feed provided to ffserver
Each live feed contains one video and/or audio sequence coming from an
encoder or another ffserver
. This sequence may be encoded
simultaneously with several codecs at several resolutions.
A feed instance specification is introduced by a line in the form:
specifies the unique name of the FFM stream.
The following options are recognized within a Feed section.
- File filename
- ReadOnlyFile filename
- Set the path where the feed file is stored on disk.
If not specified, the /tmp/FEED.ffm is assumed, where FEED is
the feed name.
If ReadOnlyFile is used the file is marked as read-only and it will
not be deleted or updated.
- Truncate the feed file, rather than appending to it. By
default ffserver will append data to the file, until the maximum
file size value is reached (see FileMaxSize option).
- FileMaxSize size
- Set maximum size of the feed file in bytes. 0 means
unlimited. The postfixes "K" (2^10), "M" (2^20), and
"G" (2^30) are recognized.
Default value is 5M.
- Launch args
- Launch an ffmpeg command when creating
args must be a sequence of arguments to be provided to an
ffmpeg instance. The first provided argument is ignored, and it is
replaced by a path with the same dirname of the ffserver instance,
followed by the remaining argument and terminated with a path
corresponding to the feed.
When the launched process exits, ffserver will launch another program
In case you need a more complex ffmpeg configuration, e.g. if you
need to generate multiple FFM feeds with a single ffmpeg instance,
you should launch ffmpeg by hand.
This option is ignored in case the commandline option -n is
- ACL spec
- Specify the list of IP address which are allowed or denied
to write the feed. Multiple ACL options can be specified.
A Stream section defines a stream provided by ffserver
, and identified by
a single name.
The stream is sent when answering a request containing the stream name.
A stream section must be introduced by the line:
specifies the unique name of the stream.
The following options are recognized within a Stream section.
Encoding options are marked with the encoding
tag, and they are used to
set the encoding parameters, and are mapped to libavcodec encoding options.
Not all encoding options are supported, in particular it is not possible to
set encoder private options. In order to override the encoding options
specified by ffserver
, you can use the ffmpeg
Only one of the Feed
options should be set.
- Feed feed_name
- Set the input feed. feed_name must correspond to an
existing feed defined in a "Feed" section.
When this option is set, encoding options are used to setup the encoding
operated by the remote ffmpeg process.

- Set the filename of the pre-recorded input file to stream.
When this option is set, encoding options are ignored and the input file
content is re-streamed as is.

- Preroll n
- Set this to the number of seconds backwards in time to
start. Note that most players will buffer 5-10 seconds of video, and also
you need to allow for a keyframe to appear in the data stream.
Default value is 0.
- Do not send stream until it gets the first key frame. By
default ffserver will send data immediately.
- MaxTime n
- Set the number of seconds to run. This value set the
maximum duration of the stream a client will be able to receive.
A value of 0 means that no limit is set on the stream duration.
