FFmpeg doesn't offer H.264 library, but instead it has libx264 to encode and decode video.
Here is a link were you can configure ffmpeg to use this library.


You will have to get the camera stream stream, transcode it and send it to the Iphone i guess.

Subject: [FFserver-user] live h.264 streaming from wifi camera directly to	iPhone


I have spent months trying to figure out how to get a standard h.264 WiFi home camera to stream its video directly to my iPhone. The more I research the more I am finding that although the iPhone has an h.264 hardware decoder, it cannot decode the stream coming from my live camera directly (a middleman server is needed). Is this true? If so, can FFMPEG offer any assistance to get the h.264 stream to go from the camera directly to the iPhone?

Any and all help is very much much appreciated.

Thank you,
