Kieran Kunhya, the OBE dev proposes SMPTE 2022-6 (SDI over IP) for that interconnection:
"In an ideal world mlt could output SMPTE 2022-6 uncompressed SDI over IP which is the closest thing to a standard."

Any thoughts on that?

Hi guys,

I am using OBE (Open Broadcast Encoder - obe.tv) to encode the SDI stream Melted produces.

I am wondering, if you think it would be technically doable to connect Melted to OBE in pure software.

Being able to eliminate SDI would have several advantages for us:

* Less complex infrastructure
* Possibly eliminating sync problems between Playout and OBE SDI (without a timing reference signal)
* Reduction of hardware cost

Can you imagine a way to connect the two together in software?
Either with an OBE consumer or through avformat consumer using something like the NUT container.

How much work would that be?

My best regards,
Markus
