    Can I stream to two devices?

    I am trying to stream to two devices simultaneously. I have four tuners. Is it possible? When I try, it freezes.

    You should be able to, as long as your server has enough CPU available. Transcoding to a format the iOS devices can watch is pretty hard on the CPU.

    Thanks for the quick reply. In my task manager it shows that when I start a second stream, the second instance of ffmpeg comes on briefly but after a few seconds the other one terminates. I don't know if that's because I don't have enough CPU power?

    That's probably not because of the CPU.

    If you want to restart the recording service (to reset the logs), then reproduce the problem, and post the logs, I'll take a look.

    Can you check if there is also logs in C:\Users\Public\NPVR\web\temp?

    I'm not 100% sure why that might be, but I'll try reproducing ithere.

    Don't you need to pass a &client= parameter to allow multiple streams, none are passed to ffmpeg
