[Sticky] CasparCG 2.0 - Disk Consumer [Updated 12-02-25]

Postby Robert Nagy » 12 Dec 2011, 19:37

NOTE: This post has been updated to correspond to the latest revision.

We have finally enabled the Disk Consumer. I thought I'd write a short tutorial to help people get started with the consumer and send us feedback!

Some notes:

    The disk consumer uses ffmpeg to encode video and ffmpeg users will feel somewhat at home with the commands.

    The encoding will take advantage of multi-core cpus.

To start the disk consumer you need to send the following command:

Code: Select all
ADD 1 FILE myfile.mov


Where the file extension will decide the container format and appropriate codec.

To stop it you simply type:

Code: Select all
REMOVE 1 FILE


The default, and recommended format is H264 which uses the highly optimized libx264 encoder. You can of course also choose what codec to encode to. The disc consumer tries to mimic the commandline arguments used by ffmpeg, see ffmpeg for more options. Some of the available options are:

Code: Select all
-f // container format
-vcodec // vicdeo codec
-pix_fmt // pixel_format
-r // video framerate
-s // size
-b // video bitrate
-acodec // audio codec
-ar // audio samplerate
-ab // audio bitrate
-ac // audio channels


Code: Select all
ADD 1 FILE myfile.mov -vcodec dnxhd
ADD 1 FILE myfile.mov -vcodec prores
ADD 1 FILE myfile.mov -vcodec dvvideo
ADD 1 FILE myfile.mov -vcodec libx264


For the above formats we have already provided high quality default parameters. Though you can of course also specify other codecs (see the -vcodec option in ffmpeg), and the corresponding options (see ffmpeg documentation):

Code: Select all
ADD 1 FILE myfile.mov -vcodec libx264 -preset ultrafast -tune fastdecode -crf 5


Try it out and and don't forget to give us feedback!

Thanks

How to ingest from SDI-source then?

ADD 1 DECKLINK 1
ADD 1 FILE foo.mov

You need to start playing the decklink on the channel, and then you ingest the channel.

Code: Select all
PLAY 1-1 DECKLINK DEVICE 1
ADD 1 FILE foo.mov

That would add a decklink device 1 consumer, i.e. output on decklink device 1.

The ADD/REMOVE commands are for consumer/output.

@visualident: Ask first on the ffmpeg mailing list. If ffmpeg supports it, we might.

Yes ffmpeg support it.
To try, I just have to do this: ADD 1 FILE myfile.mxf ?

You cannot route a videostream from one channel to another. However, what I think you want is multiple consumers outputting the same channel.

Code: Select all
<channel>
<consumers>
    <screen/>
    <decklink>
         <device>3</device>
    </decklink>
</consumers>
</channel>

Not exactly, I want to use the signal in different ways. Will have to split it in hardware then :)

I see. There is a channel reroute producer in the code. But there is currently no AMCP command to load it.

No, there is no way to load it. I will see if I can add it tomorrow and give you a build. Basically what it will do is to load a channel as a regular producer.

I still don't understand what you want to do. If you have multiple consumers on the same channel that is the same thing as splitting the video-stream, it will output the same thing on all consumers.

But I can comp several versions in each channel. I would like the video to be shown clean in a multiviewer in channel x and be recorded clean in channel y and be comped with CG on top in channel z and so on and so on... But this is all theoretical. I have no usecase for it today. Just playing with the toys :)

I understand, it's not quite what you want, but try the latest build http://dl.dropbox.com/u/9572945/CasparC ... ta%204.zip

Play on 2 channels, and then in the console write "CHANNEL_GRID", and you will get up a window displaying all channels in a grid,

I am trying to render a flash-template to a file (with alpha) I tried different codecs (according to FFMPEG doc). Until now there was always a dissorted picture (see other post) and I did not found a codec that preserves alpha information...

On the DeckLink everything looks and works as expected. So I think I don't send nonsense to CasparCG...

Here comes the log:

Re: [Sticky] CasparCG 2.0 - Disk Consumer - A quick introduc

Postby Robert Nagy » 02 Jan 2012, 19:24

Hm, it's probably a problem with DVCPRO and HD resolution.

DVCPRO is a really annoying format for SD, and it's even worse for HD. I would strongly suggest you use any of the other codecs such as H264, DNXHD, PRORES, QTANIM etc...

Anyways, try on of the other codecs just to verify that it is indeed a problem with HD DVCPRO.

I tried H264, DNXHD and PRORES with the same result. Just used DVCPRO for generation of the Log...

Strange, haven't encountered that problem before. What are you trying to play the output files with? Could you provide a sample DNXHD output file. Also please try with another video-mode e.g. PAL or 720p5000.

Re: [Sticky] CasparCG 2.0 - Disk Consumer - A quick introduc

Postby didikunz » 02 Jan 2012, 22:53

I realized, that I had not installed QuickTime. Now it looks ok and DNXHD and PRORES works well (also in HD). The QTANIM codec does not work, do I need QuickTime Pro for it to work? There is still no alpha information, the codecs run in 422. Is there a OPTION to set for alpha?

Thank you for your help and have a happy, blessed and successfull 2012!!!

I would suggest you use VLC or CasparCG to look at the output files.

ffmpeg doesn't support alpha in many codecs, as far as I know qtanim and huffyuv have alpha support. To encode with qtanim you need to use the string "qtrle" as codec.

If I try to use mpeg2-video encoder, all passed options are not recognized, for example:

Code: Select all
-pix_fmt yuv420p


Hmm, any problems with MPEG-2? 2.0b4

Hello Tomasz. Unfortunately 2.0b4 did not properly pass all options to the encoder. This have been fixed in the latest revision and will be included in the next Beta release.

Changing -r (rate) during recording, will that enable some sort of slow motion playback?

The latest SVN revision does not record H264 properly, audio dissapears after around 1 minute 40 seconds (sometimes sooner, sometimes later). I use Decklink as an input, tried PAL input with different parameters, mov and mp4 containers. Always the same result. To be honest, did not try the previous betas to to the same.

Config file, log and two recorded files are located here: http://min.us/m2zmrlV0T#4 The first file recorded with the default settings, the second one with some more reasonable ones. Both loose audio after 01:35. Input is SDI PAL, Decklink Duo, HP Z400 computer with Win7 64 bit

Ok, it seems to be a problem. The audio doesn't disappear "after a while", it's that not all the buffered audio is written to the file before "closing" it. To get around the problem just record more than you need, that way the audio will only be missing in the "over recorded" part. I will take a closer look when I have time.

Try with a RAW audio codec, e.g: -acodec pcm_s16le

Well, not really. In the file I sent (TEST_01_190312.MOV) audio dissapears at around 00:00:52:00, while the length of the whole clip is 00:01:36:00. The same with the second clip.

As stated in the wiki:
For DNxHD, ProRes, DV and H.264 codecs we have already provided high quality default parameters, so to get the optimized settings for H.264 your command would only have to be:
Code: Select all
ADD 1 FILE myfile.mov -vcodec libx264
