2.1.0 on headless linux

Postby silid » 23 Aug 2016, 16:13

Has anyone done any testing on the requirements to run CasparCG 2.1.0 on a headless linux server? (Ubuntu Server rather than Desktop)

I've done some preliminary work to get it running, but before i spend more time, I wondered if someone has been down this road before.

Thanks.

Did you get it running?
I am trying the same.
There is no screen device defined in channel of course. Just one Decklink device.

Result:
Code: Select all
Type "q" to close application.

Make sure, that it starts the GPU drivers somehow. Otherways you will have problems with the rendering.

I can confirm that this is possible.

I used a combination of VirtualGL and Xfvb to run CasparCG on an Nvidia Tesla vps before.
