INSTALLING

If you want to stream just download the latest version of FreeJ and install it:

compile it from source with

./configure && make

install it with:

make install

or install one of the binary packages provided

USAGE

Since version 0.9 streaming is configured via scripting, the full documentation is available on http://freej.dyne.org/docs/scripting/VideoEncoder.html

As the scripting API is progressing, some details are changing across versions, check your freej version with 'freej -v' and see the possibilities below:

Change the settings to your server configuration and run the script during your performance (load it dynamically with ctrl-j from the console) to start streaming.

streaming with version 0.10

// create a jack audio input
//                    port name     buffer size  samlerate
audio = new AudioJack("alsaplayer", 2048,        44100);
// in case the port named is not already present:
// you should connect the input manually using jack

// create a video encoder object
//    values 1-100         video quality  video bitrate  audio quality  audio_bitrate
encoder = new VideoEncoder(10,             64000,        0,             24000);

// add the audio channel in the video encoded
encoder.add_audio(audio);

encoder.stream_host("giss.tv");
encoder.stream_port(8000);
encoder.stream_title("testing new freej");
encoder.stream_username("source");
encoder.stream_password("2t645");
encoder.stream_mountpoint("freej-test.ogg");

register_encoder(encoder);
encoder.start_stream();
//encoder.start_filesave('/mnt/hd1/3/video/luminescenza.ogg');

streaming with version 0.9

Here a simple example script:

// create a video encoder object
//    values 1-100         video quality  video bitrate  audio quality  audio_bitrate
encoder = new VideoEncoder(10,             64000,        5,             24000);
encoder.stream_host("giss.tv");
encoder.stream_port(8000);
encoder.stream_title("testing new freej");
encoder.stream_username("source");
encoder.stream_password("hackme");
encoder.stream_mountpoint("freej-test.ogg");
register_encoder(encoder);

encoder.start_stream();
//// uncomment the line below to save on a local file as well:
// encoder.start_filesave("prova.ogg");

streaming with version 0.8 or older

Users acquainted with the 0.8 version please note the ctrl-w key doesn't works anymore, now the stream is started from a script and scripts can be loaded dinamically.

Versions before 0.8 cannot stream! update yourself and join the online sensation!

How to include into a WebSite ?

For example like that

<object ID="MediaPlayer" WIDTH="240" HEIGHT="197" CLASSID="CLSID:22D6f312-B0F6-11D0-94AB-0080C74C7E95"
STANDBY="Loading Windows Media Player components..." TYPE="application/x-oleobject"
CODEBASE="http://activex.microsoft.com/activex/controls/mplayer/en/nsmp2inf.cab#Version=6,
4,7,1112">
<param name="autoStart" value="True">
<param name="filename" value="http://localhost/freej.ogg">
<param NAME="ShowControls" VALUE="True">
<param NAME="ShowStatusBar" VALUE="True">
<embed TYPE="application/x-mplayer2" SRC="http://localhost/freej.ogg" NAME="MediaPlayer"
WIDTH="240" HEIGHT="197" autostart="1" showcontrols="1">
</embed>
</object>

or like that

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">
<title>test</title>
</head>
<body style="top:0px;left:0px;margin:0px;padding:0px;background-color:#000000;">
<table width="100%" height="100%">
<tr>
<td align="center">
<embed src="http://localhost/freej.ogg" type="video/ogg" controller="true" autoplay="true" height="256" width="320"></embed>
</td>
</tr>
</table>
</body>
</html>

But also using the Cortado java applet which works well especially when it is embedded into iTheora
