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


One thought on “E2 Transcoder for Raspberry PI2 first unstable release

  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.
