Gigapxy 1.0-2.2 (a patch) is out, featuring a minor bug fix and an update to handle new licenses (old ones should work fine).

Tip of the day: make sure that core dumps are enabled and actually do get generated from gws and gng (take a moment to check by killing a gng with ABRT).

Note: both gws and gng feature enforce_core_dumps setting.

Crashes are really rare these days (months pass before I get one from clients) and difficult to reproduce. Do tell when one happens.

Gigapxy/HLS is in the foresight. In serving the content, it could do it all or delegate serving video segments to a third-party component. Which way would you prefer?

Can go either way

Gigapxy 1.0-2.0 is out. The new features are:

1. SSM (source-specific multicast) via udp://from@group:port URLs;
2. Source-URL redirection via HTTP 302;
3. Conservative caching : HEAD replaces MIN_CACHED as the default caching mode - see man gng.conf for details;
4. FreeBSD 11.x and Ubuntu 16.04 LTS support.

Some bug fixes too, but not so many of those as VERY few crashes were reported from the last release.

Cheers!


IGMPv3-based SSM support has been added to the plan for the next release (1.0-2.x). Thank you everyone who voted.

Do you handle (as channels) HTTP sources that may redirect via HTTP 301 or 302? Would gigapxy's handling source redirects be of any value?

No redirects on my side, no use

SSM (source-specific multicast) support is going to be in the next official build. For unofficial builds (Ubuntu 16, Debian 8), please go to the bug tracker:

Test away, your comments and notes are welcome. :) Cheers.

Would you benefit from IGMPv3 support in Gigapxy?

Not sure.

Happy New Year 2017! Thank you for your support of the product. I wonder if this community grows to (at least) a 100 by the end of the year. Yup, I have my hopes.

Q1/2017 GPL is out on the website. The entry-point price has been lowered for those on a really tight budget.

Those of you who request a license for FreeBSD 11 up until January 10th get a 20% discount off the regular price (if priced by Q1/2017 GPL). Those who recommend this product to others may expect other discounts as well (if those recommendations result in a purchase).

Hi,

Thanks for adding me. I have a question regarding the software, do it let me to join igmp in regular way:

udp://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx@xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:port because udpxy does not allow this, and I am seeking something that can do that.

Thanks,
Lukasz
