tip (to compile newer builds)

  • make clean && git pull
  • rinse and repeat


Its way simpler than i thought and even works in chrome, firefox, opera, mpv, mpc-be and vlc, the only ones out are edge/ie and safari still no webm?!


  • apt-get install icecast2
  • follow the instructions to set password


  • wget http://johnvansickle.com/ffmpeg/builds/ffmpeg-git-64bit-static.tar.xz
  • unxz ffmpeg-git-64bit-static.tar.xz && tar xvf ffmpeg*.tar
  • cd ffmpeg*

ffmpeg WebM (VP8/Opus) still some funky things with vp9 :/

  • wget http://distribution.bbb3d.renderfarming.net/video/mp4/bbb_sunflower_1080p_30fps_normal.mp4
  • wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/nwgat/scripts/master/icewebm.sh
  • nano icewebm.sh (change input file and icecast password/server:port)
  • chmod +x icewebm.sh
  • ./icewebm.sh

check the stream

  • open http://ninja.domain:8000/live.webm in your browser or mpv http://ninja.domain:8000/live.webm
