Nginx_mp4_streaming_lite updated


#1

A bug-fix version has been release and can be downloaded in

http://wiki.codemongers.com/NginxMP4StreamingLite

Tested under:

  • CentOS 5.2
  • FreeBSD 6.2
  • Leopard 10.5.5
  • nginx/0.6.32 and nginx/0.7.19
    Both 32-bit and 64-bit

This module compiles but unlikely works on big-endian architectures.

2008-11-01

  • start=0 (or 0.0) was allowed in order to send the re-indexed whole
    file.
  • a directio-related neglect was fixed.
  • mp4_directio directive was removed and the module now follows the
    server-wide
    directio setting.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated.

Best wishes,

Are you Peng Wu? or is your module related to his module? I am losing
track.

Dear Thomas,

No. We are different person.
He released his code 4 days before me.

Thanks!

Best Regard,

I followed the instructions. The nginx compiled with the module, I
have added an mp4 directive to my configuration file, but when I
launch nginx, I get the error message: unknown directive “mp4”

Here is the output from ./configue:

adding module in src/http/modules/nginx_mp4_streaming_lite

  • ngx_http_mp4_streaming_lite_module was configured

So I assume the configuration worked well.

For some reason, I wasn’t launching the correct nginx binary. With the
correct binary, it works perfectly and I can stream mp4 files. Thank
you Jiang for this module.

By the way you can add a new compatible platform: PowerPC G4, Tiger
10.4.11, Xcode 2.5, and I’ll soon recompile the nginx on my production
server with your module (Debian Etch 32 bits).

You talk about a commercial full version that supports more mp4 files,
what are these files?

I’ll get back to you if I run in any trouble.

Nginx is now even more perfect :wink:

Best regards,

Wahhh!!! Why is my email address appearing in clear text in your
email at ruby-forum.com ???

Thanks for your response, anyway my PPC machine is only for developing
and testing, so I won’t push it to the limits, and PPC machines don’t
play h264 videos (that’s why I use your module) very well :smiley:


#7

Thank you for your interested in the nginx_mp4_streaming_lite module.

I wrote and debugged the module in a MacBook Pro, but neither I or my
colleges don’t have a PPC envionment, so I’m afraid that I could not
help at
this time.

PPC is big-endian, so there will be some works related to moov.c which
assumes little-endian. I will try to do it if I could get a Sun SPARC
box.

As to the commercial version, it supports more variants of MP4 files,
i.e.,
the non-standard ones.
