[AG-TECH] Using AGVCR with latest Video Producer

Hi Doug,

The streams were listed during recording, and are listed when I play back.

If I leave the default vic.exe configured, AGVCR plays back just the H261 streams, but not the H264 streams.

When I specify the path to the same vic.exe that my Toolkit's VideoConsumerServiceH264 uses, I just get 'waiting for video' with nothing ever displayed. It's the same when I specify the path to my VideoProducerServiceH264.

I'm getting a bit stuck for ideas now, and really need to play back a recording tomorrow morning that contains a stream transmitted via the Extended Video service of Toolkit.

Please can some just clarify that I am indeed pointing AGVCR at the correct vic.exe files ?

It would be comforting to know that someone else has actually been successful doing exactly what I'm trying to do here.

Regards, Ben.

Hi Ben,

>>From what I can tell, the current AGVCR will not play back recorded video streams from an H264 or Extended Video service.

You didn't mention if you are using the AGVCR Launcher from the VenueClient or manually setting the host and port details for the audio and video streams within AGVCR.

The H264 and Extended Video services are configured to use different ports than the standard H261 Video service, so I suspect that's the reason you aren't recording them.
