Project Description

Capture audio and video from the desktop and stream it to the local network using avconv and vlc.

Python Script

You can just run the python module and - if you install this package - you could also start the provided script from the console or your desktop shell.

Usage

Start the package like this python -m desktopstreamer [options]. Or use the startup script like this:

stream_desktop [-n|--gui] [-a|-A] [capture options] [stream options]
stream_desktop --version
stream_desktop --help

To use it in your desktop shell, a .desktop file is provided.

Install

The easiest way to install this package is trough pip:

pip install --user desktopstreamer

Or download the latest source (or get it trough git clone ...) and install it like this (from the sources root directory):

python setup.py install --user

Dependencies

You don’t need to install any Python dependencies.

Requirements

avconv and vlc are required though. Install them like this:

  • Debian / Ubuntu: sudo apt-get install libav-tools vlc

Setup

You can use the provided .desktop file and icon from the data/ directory to start the script from your desktop shell.

Settings

You can use a file to store the settings in a JSON dictionary.

The default location is ~/.config/DesktopStreamer/settings.json. The supported keys are the capture and stream long-options (with _ instead of -).

To store settings in this file, use the --save option. If you use it, the current settings are stored and previous settings are overwritten. You can create and edit it manually too.

Here’s some example content:

{
  "port": 420,
  "res_out": "1280x720"
}

The settings from this file are applied, if you use the --load option.

Note

The provided .desktop file uses the --load option automatically each time.

Shell Script

You can source the data/stream_desktop.sh in your .bash_aliases or similar to get a quick stream_desktop command. The python script has more options though.
