ffprobe hangs on non existent rtmp stream (Python3.7)

Post by Ironic » Sun Apr 28, 2019 1:17 am

Hi all

I am trying to check if a rtmp stream is coming from nginx server.

I can use the -show_format tag on the server address and get info on the stream
The issue is that if the stream is not active (but server is active) ffprobe just hangs.

Is there a way to add a timeout?

Kind Regards
