The Disk (Audio and Video) Page

On this page you can specify details of how the stream will be archived to disk. You will see this page if you selected Save To Disk and Audio & Video on the Consumption Page.

The Choose Location field should contain the path to the directory to which the files should be saved. Note that this is the directory path on the specified worker's computer, which is not necessarily the same computer on which this configuration assistant is running.

Select the Rotate Entry option to specify when a new file should be started, entering either a maximum number of hours or a maximum file size.

Select the Record at Startup option to start recording as soon as Flumotion starts, when you have finished with this assistant. You can then stop recording by clicking the Stop button in the Filename tab after clicking on the component named disker-audio-video. If you leave Record at Startup unselected then you can click the Start New File button there to start recording.

The worker drop-down choice allows you to choose what computer this component should run on, for instance if the camera is attached to a different computer that is available via the network. This allows you to distribute tasks across several server computers. See the Deployment chapter to learn how to create extra workers. The Configuration Assistant would then offer these workers in the drop-down choice after connecting to their manager.
