cubemap - scalable video reflector, designed to be used with VLC
cubemap [options] [FILE]
cubemap is a high-performance, high-availability video reflector,
specifically made for use with VLC.
- High-performance, through a design with multiple worker threads, epoll and
sendfile (yes, sendfile); a 2GHz quadcore can saturate 10 gigabit
Ethernet, given a modern kernel, a modern NIC and the right kernel
- High-availability. You can change any part of the configuration (and even
upgrade to a newer version of Cubemap) by changing cubemap.config and
sending a SIGHUP; all clients will continue as if nothing had happened
(unless you delete the stream they are watching, of course). Cubemap also
survives the encoder dying and reconnecting.
- Support for setting max pacing rate through the fq packet scheduler
(depends on Linux 3.13 or newer).
- Reflects anything VLC can reflect over HTTP, even the muxes VLC has
problems reflecting itself (in particular, FLV).
- Multicast support, both for sending and receiving (supports only protocols
that can go over UDP, e.g. MPEG-TS). Supports both ASM and SSM.
- IPv4 support. Yes, Cubemap even supports (some) legacy protocols.
- --test-config, -t
- tests the config and exits
- configuration file (defaults to cubemap.config in the current
