Ingest MxPEG Video from a File or Stream

Media Server can ingest MxPEG video (but not the audio) from a file or stream.

To ingest MxPEG video

  1. Create a new configuration to send to Media Server with the process action, or open an existing configuration that you want to modify.

  2. In the [Ingest] section, set the following configuration parameters:

    IngestEngine The name of a section in the configuration file that will contain the ingestion settings.

    To ingest MxPEG video from a stream, set this parameter to 1.

    To ingest MxPEG video from a file set this parameter to 0. IngestRate=1 is not supported with MxPEG files.

    For example:

  3. Create a new section in the configuration file to contain the ingestion settings, and set the following parameters:

    Type The ingest engine to use. Set this parameter to MxPEG.

    For example:


    There is no configuration parameter to specify the source. You must specify the path of the file or the URL of the stream that you want to ingest as the value of the Source parameter in the Process action, when you start processing.

    For more information about the parameters you can set to configure ingestion, refer to the Media Server Reference.

  4. Save and close the configuration file. HPE recommends that you save your configuration files in the location specified by the ConfigDirectory parameter.
