Video doesn't play in fpCEF3
« on: September 30, 2020, 08:58:21 am »
I've switched from OBS+VLC to nginx+fpCEF in order to decrease load on server. Simple slideshow works well. But when I add video - it doesn't play. Screen just stays blank. No static preview is shown. Just blank screen. It plays, when I open same page in browser. What can be wrong? Is it due to autoplay being disabled? Or is it due to lack of video support in fpCEF3? Video is simple MP4.
DynamicData 3.0 is released!
Since now development is frozen - only optimization passes will be made at some point.
Lack of multiple inheritance turns it into abomination.

I guess, default CEF3 build lacks codecs. Where can I download build for fpCEF 3.3029 with all codes included? cefbuilds.com doesn't work for me.

Ok. I guess, compiling it from sources is the only way, as there are no pre-compiled binaries anywhere. Unfortunately I don't have time for this now. And there is no guarantee, that I won't encounter more problems, such as disabled autoplay.

So I'll try new approach tomorrow. Just open URLs in external Firefox, I like much more, in "always open in same tab" + kiosk mode.

And establishing Comet server via nginx and updating page in realtime is way too hard, cuz I need this work to be done tomorrow. I don't want to deal with something like PHP for now.

I use exactly this binaries - no video support there. Just blank screen.

Okay.

I don't know if you can plug FMMPEG libraries and cef binary somehow together so you can transfer video stream to FMMPEG for playback.

Yeah, but it requires recompiling from sources. That's, what I'm talking about. And, I guess, it requires lots of things to be set up.
