I wonder how to set a certain buffer for the video playback. I noticed that there are two entries in the config file that might relate to that.
engine.buffers.video_num_buffers (default 500)
engine.buffers.video_num_frames (default 15)
While the second one seems to be logical, the first one isn't really clear for me. What's the unit of 500... Kilobyte?
I am doing some experiments on HTTP-based streaming and would like to set the buffering of the player to 3 seconds. When using a framerate of 30, I would need to set the parameter video_num_frames to 90? What about the first parameter?
For my investigations also some statistics would be nice:
- number of dropped frames (late frames)
- status of the buffer (percentage, seconds or bytes)
I haven't figured out which commandline parameters I should use.
