5 Advanced settings in push mode

Tread Queue Size

This option sets the maximum number of packets in the queue when read from the file or device. For low latency/high rate live streams, packages may be discarded if they are not read in time; setting this value may force FFmpeg to use a separate input thread and read packets as they arrive. The default value is 512.

> Flags

Default value is: genpts

  1. discardcorrput -> Discard damaged frames

  2. fastseek -> Enable fast but inaccurate searches for some formats.

  3. genpts -> Generate the timestamp of the video

  4. igndts -> Ignore decoding of the timestamp

  5. ignidx -> Ignore index

  6. nobuffer -> Reduce latency caused by optional buffering

  7. nofillin -> Do not fill in missing values that can be calculated exactly

  8. noparse -> Disable AVParsers, that needs filling too

  9. sortdts -> Try to interleave the output packets by decoding the timestamp


After starting the test process, the active video stream can be selected.

"Show probe details" shows the feedback from the system.
