It has been a while since I have done much with ffmpeg (and I've never worked with ffserver). So when streaming a resource over my network, I was trying to get the browser to play the video natively. When I went to the browser and typed in the URL: http://192.168.2.5:81/canon.ffm. I got the following error:
This feed is already being received.
Looking back at the ffserver conf file, I noticed there was a feed and a stream. To get the data to stream properly, I needed to use the Stream address which was canon.mjpeg. Once I had modified this, I was able to begin streaming the video data.
I'm working on a device (using raspberry pi) that will stream live video feeds over the internet for under $100. Stay tuned to see that research posted.
