-qphist for ffplay

Postby S4M1R » Tue Nov 29, 2016 1:59 pm


I would like to measure statistics (FPS, Bitrate) from a ffplay command instead of ffmpeg. This because recording for many hours takes a lot space on disk.

The way I do it now is that I record a video with ffmpeg for a specific duration and save statistics (-qphist) in a file

ffmpeg -rtsp_transport tcp -t $duration -i rtsp://$cred/axis-media/media.amp?videocodec=h264 -qphist -vcodec copy -r 60 -y $outputDIR/camRecording_h264.avi &> $logfile &

Instead I would like to play a rtsp video and collect statistics so that video is not saved on disk but still get the same statistics.

ffplay "command" &> file

With ffplay I can get some info with loglevel but nothing about FPS or Bitrate

I checked man ffplay and googled around but could not find anything about this.

Is it even possible to get FPS and Bitrate statistics from ffplay?

Best regards
