Surveillance server

asked 2013-10-08 04:44:48 -0500

Hello everybody!

I have to build a surveillance server on linux debian, my question is about video formats, i would record and save videos on hard drive. Then, the server will provide these videos to the clients connected with it, via streaming. Opencv supports some compressed formats, that is right for me? The are some default procedures for these tasks? I'm new to this type of services.

Thanks in advance. Matteo.

hmm, if you need no further image-processing on your data, consider using gstreamer / ffmpeg directly.

If you still consider to use opencv though, yes you can use compressed formats that are determined by fourcc.
