FMLE Recorded Video Issue

Did you made a stream using FMLE or Tricaster but the recorded video is not playable? Then you must be aware of the following:

Are you changing FMLE settings? You must know the following important situation:

  • by default FMLE is using the VP6 codec
  • H264 codec — videos are saved in mp4 format
  • VP6 codec — videos are saved in flv format

By default, autorecording settings is set to APPEND recordings at 5 minutes

If a user start to broadcast using VP6 (default setting in FMLE), autorecord is on and the recording is saved, change to H264 and start recording again (in less than 5 minutes) the result will be an APPEND video from mp4 and flv, which is a broken video.

That’s why we recommend to use the H264 codec.

Also when using the FMLE or Tricaster application to broadcast, you should modify the Append option to Never Append on autorecord settings area.
