How to stop recording when stream shows no signal message

Postby jamsjan130@gmail.com » Mon Apr 03, 2017 10:31 am

I am recording video from a rtsp live stream using ffmpeg and during this process sometimes the camera goes with no signal message at this time i want to stop recording of stream,i have tried it with bitrate that it checks for bitrates every minutes and if bitrate is less than some value eg(bitrate=150) then the condition in my shell script stops the process of recording if not it continues the process,but this i couldn't get consistent result because of variation in value of bitrates.

My question: How to stop this process(recording) when i get no signal message in my video?
