Thank you for your help!
The fact is taht when using hardware encoder and you set mux rate to
20Mbit/s and video to 2Mbit/s the "space" between 2 Mbit and 20 Mbit/s will
be filled with null packets, this is not in this case.
Now I reduced Mux rate and it is not exceeded by the tests I did with TS
reader. But still this encoder doesn't behave like a hardware one, but no
Please note, that I use this multicast stream for input into the hardware
The other problem that I have with the same video settings is when I add
audio stream. When I add audio stream there are problems on sound all the
If I use the same settings but without video input it works without a
The problem is only on hardware (all that I tested), it works on VLC with
