Issue with enabling Lighttpd module "mod_h264_streaming"

Added by wizztechs over 4 years ago. Updated over 4 years ago.

Target version:



We have an issue while enabling "mod_h264_streaming" in Lighttpd configuration. When added this module in server.modules list in the lighttpd configuration, we are not able to start the service with the following error:

Its a cPanel server with Centos 7. Apache is running on port 80 and lihttpd is running at port 81. lihttpd is used only for streaming purposes.

We have tried the versions 1.4.39 and 1.50 (from source code compile installation)and both returns the same issue.

Any idea regarding this error?

Thank you.

  • Category deleted (mod_flv_streaming)
  • Status changed from New to Invalid
  • Assignee deleted (darix)
  • Priority changed from High to Low
  • Target version deleted (1.4.x)

mod_h264_streaming is a 3rd-party module, not supported, and probably wasn't updated to match the latest abi changes.

Don't use 3rd-party modules which were compiled against a different lighttpd version.

We have tried to install different versions of Lighttpd with "mod_h264_streaming" module and none of them allowed to start the service when the module added in the server.modules list in the lighttpd configuration. Does this module support/compatible with any of the available versions of Lighttpd?

Thank you.

How would anyone here know? the mod_h264_streaming module was note designed, coded, or compiled by anyone here. You will have to talk to the people you got mod_h264_streaming from.
