Problem with picture output, line artefact

Could you help me with some little problem?
I use ffserver with ffmpeg to convert video from ipcam to mjpeg. My config ffserver.conf, has next configuration:

Code: Select all
<Feed cam.ffm>                                                                                                                                                                                            [43/1910]
File            /tmpfs/cam.ffm
FileMaxSize     10M
Launch ffmpeg -r 6 -i rtsp://  -qscale 1 -b:v 2048k -crf 10 -an -vcodec mjpeg

Code: Select all
<Stream cam.mjpeg>
    Feed cam.ffm
    Format mpjpeg
    VideoFrameRate 10
    VideoBitRate 1024
    VideoSize 800x600
    VideoQMin 1
    VideoQMax 5
    Strict -1
    PreRoll 0

What do you think about this problem? I tried change any parameters but it doesn't result.

I don't have an answer as I have never used ffserver, but ffserver is going away soon. I suggest finding an alternative.
Get an answer more quickly by providing your actual ffmpeg command and the complete console output. Use the code button to format your command and output or your question will be ignored.

Sorry, but maybe do you know alternative ffserver?

I use ffserver for share mjpeg stream from simple ipcams. I am very tired from ffserver, because sometime process ffmpeg crashed:
Code: Select all
cam17.ffm: Pid 939 exited with status 0 after 4187 seconds
cam16.ffm: Pid 938 exited with status 0 after 4389 seconds

and I don't know how I can restart only process with problems streams
