Problem with stream on Ubuntu 18.04

Mehy 2019-02-20 19:16:46 UTC in Nimble Streamer

I transcoded the stream using ffmpeg and sent it to the nimble server with rtsp. When I watch the stream in a few seconds the stream stops short and continues again.

Could you give complete ffmpeg command for sending stream , also, what protocol and player are you using for watching stream?

FFmpeg command:

ffmpeg -i -c:v libx264 -profile:v main -preset:v veryfast -b:v 850K -maxrate 1000k -s 480x360 -c:a aac -ac 1 -strict -2 -b:a 96k -f rtsp -rtsp_transport tcp rtsp://

You may try to add -re parameter to send stream with actual frame rate.
Do you have any issues playing this stream as HLS stream in a browser?
Also check /var/log/nimble/nimble.log - are there any errors related to this stream?
