Re-picking up stream while muxing in progress
MONITORED LIVE STREAMS
Some months ago you said that it might be possible to restart downloading a stream immediately after it has been stopped (eg, YouTube live stream downloads all stop @ 6 hours) without waiting for the completed stream to mux, which can take as much as 10-15 minutes, during which time the ongoing activity on the cam is completely missed.
I've left it rather late to remind you of this, because the UK Osprey season now looms - birds are due to start arriving back from Africa in a couple of weeks.
This is Jaksta's one shortcoming, for my purposes - otherwise, it's a godsend, it allows me to cover a lot of cams while using modest resources, I couldn't "live" without it.
(There is no commercial element whatsoever to what I do - the streamers are wildlife charities, non-profit organisations or individuals, my YouTube a/c is not monetized and never will be. I scroll thru the completed downloads and extract and join up clips of behaviours and activities of breeding raptors, mainly, but sometimes also activities on "backyard bird feeders". I post the resulting videos on bird forums. It's hard work, often involving battlies with the tech troubles that Windows and the internet throw at us
