    Default Error while opening codec for output stream #0.1 - maybe incorrect parameters such as bit_rate, rate, width or height

    how do I make this error not come up anymore. I am NOT good with computers so it might as well be in german.

    Thank you to anyone who can help me.

    Hi,
    Usually we ask for more information with this, but I did see you also had this in our support tickets. This error was received from navigating away from a RTMP stream. You can get more information on this from the user guide:

    This problem is caused by ffmpeg. If you upload your video files or just post the web-site you downloaded them from, this could help.

    I had a similar request for cam4 live RTMP streams. The recorded FLV files were using Nelly Moser audio codec (8000 Hz, mono), and after recomressing audio I was able to get an MP4 file:

    Hi all

    We spoke with our programmer, and here is what he had to say.

    Two new conversion presetting settings where added. MKV and MP4 lossless extract. No other conversion settings where changed.

    There is never anything to fix with respect to conversions, because as you know we distribute the open source product ffmpeg and RMC is fully configurable how ffmpeg is used including dropping in different versions. Quite often a codec pack such as k-lite is also required to be installed.

    Without more details on the preset that was being used and what was being converted, I couldnt even point them in the right direct except to do a google search on the error and to adjust the settings to suite their particular need.

    Please be sure and check out the FAQ's too for Jaksta/RMC 4

    Default Re: Error while opening codec for output stream #0.1 - maybe incorrect parameters such as bit_rate, rate, width or height

    Hi
    I am experiencing the same problem with this and I've tried searching and not found anything. I am using a full version of RMC4. I am trying to record Cam4 streams, which are flv files. It downloads everything fine and they play fine as flv files but I want to stream them to my PS3 and the server I use hates FLV files. There are options on RMC4 to convert to Paystaion 3 files but I have tried all these, and lots of others like AVI basic etc and none work. ON EVERY conversion I get the error "Error while opening codec for output stream #0.1 - maybe incorrect parameters such as bit_rate, rate, width or height" I have tried to input the values as shown in stream-recorder.com's post but these make no difference. You mention something about "The recorded FLV files were using Nelly Moser audio codec (8000 Hz, mono), and after recomressing audio I was able to get an MP4 file" but I've no idea what you mean nor how to adjust this. Could someone please help in noob language. Thanks

    The FLV file recorded from cam4 used Nelly Moser audio codec. I converted the audio part only and copied the video track as is. To did this I just cloned the "MPEG4 Lossless Extraction" preset, named it "MPEG4 Lossless Video Extraction_AAC audio". Then left the video part of the conversion preset unchanged and used libfaac for the audio codec as on the picture above. Then hit the Save button.

    Anyway this preset doesn't work for me on cam4 anymore. I get the following
    Code:
    Converting  -   Duration: 00:01:55.97, start: 0.000000, bitrate: N/A
    Converting -     Stream #0.0: Video: flv, yuv420p, 480x400, 1k tbr, 1k tbn, 1k tbc
    Converting -     Stream #0.1: Audio: nellymoser, 8000 Hz, mono, s16
    Converting - [mp4 @ 0x339efe0]track 0: could not find tag, codec not currently supported in container
    ...
    Could not write header for output file #0 (incorrect codec parameters ?)
    I believe that "Video: flv, yuv420p, 480x400" can't be used in MP4 file, so the video needs to be converted.

    Plus I really doubt that such video can be played on PS3 without conversion. I tried to convert the dowloaded FLV file using the "Playstation 3 (MP4 H.264; 29.97; 720x480; AAC)" preset and the video was converted without any errors. The "Playstation 3 High Quality (MP4 DivX; 29.97; 640x480; AAC)" preset didn't produce any errors as well.

    Cool Re: Error while opening codec for output stream #0.1 - maybe incorrect parameters such as bit_rate, rate, width or height

    stream-recorder.com thank you. The problem is half solved!
    Playstation 3 (MP4 H.264; 29.97; 720x480; AAC)" will convert SOME Cam4 streams without any problems and you can watch the converted file on your TV using PS3 media server. BUT for some reason others fail. Here is the code for a failed version, any ideas?

    Anyone any ideas why some would work yet others fail? I get about 1 in 3 converting?
