Subject: [FFmpeg-user] Help with HTTP Streaming FFMPEG

> *Problem 1:*
> I am trying to stream an mpg video over an http server using ffmepg. I
> initiate the ffserver and run the following command at the client:
> ffmpeg -i http://localhost:10212/Stream.mpg -y Sample.mpg
> But the Sample.mpg file is far less qualtiy and much smaller than the

> size, bit rate, ratio, fps etc.*

Try -y -vcodec copy -acodec copy sample.mpg.

> My config file is as follow:
> <Stream Stream.mpg>
>    File "/home/david/Documents/Video/Streaming/480p.mpg"
>    format mpeg
>    ACL allow
>    ACL allow
> </Stream>
> *Problem 2:*
> How can I save the streaming statistics of the video i.e how are the 
> frames
> received, their bitrates, time intervals etc. It must be unique while for
> every client if streamed over a wireless network, due to variable
> conditions.
> I know about the -vsats command in ffmpeg but It gives me the video coding
