I've been trying to record an IP-cam stream (Foscam, mjpg) via http with
The stream URL looks like this:
So I created the string (w.o line wrap):
ffmpeg -i -loglevel debug
Some examples I saw are using -c copy and map 0 options as well but I
left this out since I defined source and destination clearly and this is
just a video, no audio.
segment_time and segment_format I also left out for now (I'd like
segments later though).
FFMPEG returns: "bash: /home/user/Videos/camera.mp4: No such file or
So I tried a random mjpg stream from the net (Insecam is a nice source
for this...): http://126.96.36.199:80/mjpg/video.mjpg
ffmpeg copy -i -loglevel debug -hide_banner
Returns: -loglevel: "No such file or directory" (the same with segment
options included, copy excluded).
What am I doing wrong here?
