Extending Erizio's external Output for broadcasting ( h264 / Theora )

First of all, Thank you and congratulation to all who have been working on
this project. This is great.

I am using Lynckia in a prototype as a 1-to-many broadcasting solution and
I would like to cover non-webrtc enabled browsers.

I have been reading the code of the Lynckia project for a few days now and
it seems to me that it would be possible to extend Erizio’s codebase with
h264 and/or Thoera transcoding by adding a externalOutput.
This would allow broadcasting to tags for browsers without webrtc
capabilities.

My first idea would be to forward the stream to an icecast2 server or serve
the stream directly from an url offered by the app running the ErizioAPI.

Could anybody on the group confirm if it is indeed feasable ? What is also
unclear to me is the amount of effort needed ( I havent done c++ for a
while now ).

Is such a feature already included in the roadmap ? If not, would this be a
good candidate ?

Regards.

Hi Yannick,
Did you manage to forward the stream from Erizio to anything else
(icecast2, ffmpeg, etc)?
