MPEG4 is getting audio only video is missing

Hello,

I am trying to stream HLS from a very low bitrate MPEG4 stream but only audio is being played and video is blank. I am pulling udp multicast stream via ffmpeg => transcoding it into mpeg4 => pushing it to wmspanel/nimble via udp:

ffmpeg -re -timeout 2000 -i 'udp://@239.1.9.53:8002?overrun_nonfatal=1&fifo_size=50000000' -pix_fmt yuv420p -aspect 16:9 -filter:v yadif=0:-1:1,fps=25 -c:v mpeg4 -vtag xvid -s 176:144 -b:v 74k -c:a aac -b:a 64k -ar 44100 -framerate 20 -strict -2 -max_muxing_queue_size 1024 -f mpegts 'udp://192.168.2.200:2345' </dev/null >/dev/null 2>/root/mpeg4.log &

The following is the ffmpeg output:
Input #0, mpegts, from 'udp://@239.1.9.53:8002?overrun_nonfatal=1&fifo_size=50000000':

I have pulled the above mpegts udp stream via wmspanel/MPEGTS In and streaming via hls through MPEGTS Out. In MPEGTS out, I can see that both VIDEO and profile audio profiles are being loaded (udp://192.168.2.200:2345 Stream 256 (MPEG-4 Video) udp://192.168.2.200:2345 Stream 257 (MPEG-2 AAC Audio)

However, when I play the HLS stream, there is no video but audio is playing.
The video is playing when I use x264 codec in ffmpeg. As listed in https://wmspanel.com/nimble/codecs MPEG4 Video is supported.
Could you please suggest?

Please remove -vtag xvid option (or use -vtag h263) since Nimble doesn't recognize this setting. Also, if you would like to play it in a browser, use H.264 encoder ( -c:v libx264) instead of mpeg4.

Thank you Denis.
I can now play the video stream on VLC player. However, webplayers (player.wmspanel.com) still do not play the video and the video on the stream's dvr is also missing. I guess its best to use H.264 encoder for best compatibility.

hi guys i have transcode so i want to
pipe:///usr/bin/ffmpeg -i /stream/channelnumber/54 -vf yadif=0:0:0 -vcodec libx264 -preset veryfast -s 1280x720 -b 2500k -minrate 2500k -maxrate 2500k -bufsize 2500k -acodec aac -ab 128k -ar 44100 -strict -2 -metadata service_provider=TTVSTREAM -metadata service_name=TGCOM24 -f mpegts -tune zerolatency pipe:1

add my personal logo but it gives me error doing so

-i /home/logo.png -filter_complex overlay=main_w-overlay_w-1600:main_h-overlay_h-920 -vf yadif=0:0:0 -vcodec libx264 -preset veryfast -s 720x576 -b 3000k -minrate 3000k -maxrate 3000k -bufsize 3000k -acodec aac -ab 128k -ar 44100 -strict -2 -metadata service_provider=TTVSTREAM -metadata service_name=TGCOM24 -f mpegts -tune zerolatency pipe:1
