Hello Amar and thanks for your quick reply

I tried codec mpeg and still do not have motion in VLC,  I only get a picture and some times some motion for some seconds.
What would be the appropriate settings in the ffserver.conf or do I have to leave them as it is?

Thanks again

Dear Ioannis Maistros,
Mjpeg or  jpeg is very poor compression format for video. Please try codedc like mpeg or h264 for encoding.  like-ffmpeg -i "http://user:pass@" -vcodec mpeg or h264 ""

Hello FFMpeg users.

I am new in FFMpeg user forum and I would like to ask your help in the following issue.
I would like to stream from an Axis camera(mjpeg format) through FFmpeg to the FFserver and watch the stream from another machine by using VLC.

I have tried a lot of combinations in  the ffserver.conf file and ffmpeg commands line but without any luck.
The only I get is an image jpeg(without any motion) in the other end through VLC.
My last attempt was the default ffserver configuration file and an extra option of AVOptions flags +global_header(because ffserver was complaint about global headers all the time) and the ffmpeg command line was like the following one:

ffmpeg -i "http://user:pass@" -vcodec copy ""

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance
Best Regards
