I have a 'smart' TV that has a very limited set of functions, one of them being it can stream videos from any DLNA server on the LAN.
I have an RTSP stream on the network that I would like to view on the TV.
I tried installing
minidlna on the Pi and dumping the RTSP stream to a FIFO in the media folder using ffmpeg
mkfifo video.mp4 ffmpeg -i 'rtsp://link-to-rtsp-feed' -acodec copy -vcodec copy video.mp4
minidlna doesn't seem to detect the file as a valid video file - it doesn't come up in the library.
Can I convince
minidlna to stream the file? Can I transcode it to a different format? Or is there a simpler solution?
