E2 Transcoder for Raspberry PI2 first unstable release


I would like to inform that first unstable version of E2 transcoder for Raspberry PI2 is available in public. There is a lot of things which need to do to make this transcoder perfect, but if you wold like to test it you can do this.

Basically this is a rasbpian wheezy image with some modifications to make possible to run this app.


What you need to do to install this app?

  1. download image with torrent http://e2transcoder.sharetext.net/wp-content/uploads/files/e2transcoder-061-wheezy-unstable.torrent
  2. Install on SD card this image, there should be a lot of instructions how to do this in insternet. I suspect you need at least 8GB image, not because all software is so big but because i took this image from my 8GB SD card.
  3. If you want a transcode SD channels you need a MPEG2 license. MPEG2 license is necessary  to PI2 could decode in HW mode mpeg2 streams.  http://www.raspberrypi.com/mpeg-2-license-key/
  4. run command in pi2 console
    sudo chmod 666 /var/www/admin/db/dbtranscode.db
  5. edit file /var/www/config.php for you needs, E2 receiver IP, username etc…
  6. Open link http://yourpi2ipaddress

Ah, almoust forgot, PI2 linux username and password is

user: pi

password: raspberry

  1. Hi, Nice project.

    I got it working on Windows 10, but I cannot get it to work on the Pi properly.

    Your instructions say to edit this:
    /var/www/config.php but that’s the wrong path it should say /var/www/admin/config.php

    Also it says “Running” but when I try and open the stream in VLC nothing happens
    And there is no port 8888 created.

  2. The E2 Transcoder for Raspberry is given the stable range of release for the audience. The images and SD card with 8 GP memory is possible. The proper instructions are given for them. The admin license key and necessary PI2 decode to be given for this post. The receiver and configuring range of outputs are available for all. The links are opened and download with that. Possible modification and extra things are added the website link
