Thanks David. I usually check that but forgot that NOAA 20 is now operational and appearing there, but still under test for Eumetcast.

NOAA 20 seems to have been under test for ages. Not sure why Eumetsat are taking so long to have the data available to all !!!

Re: EUMETCastView

Hello daniarnedo,

I use the following command :
ffmpeg -r 10 -f image2 -i img%04d.png -s 1920x720 -vcodec libx264 -crf 10  -pix_fmt yuv420p -y output.mp4
You can also use mplayer , but I have no experience with that program.
Kind regards,
Hugo


Re: Warning messages on Tellicast

Christian,

Installation package "eumetsat-setup-2.14.4_7.msi" is mainly for African users to update their stations to DVB-S2 for the beginning of August 2018.
After the installation, a new service is created: afr-1. This service must be started to receive EUMETCast data on C-band (EUTELSAT 8°W).

But any EUMETCast user on Ku-band can update his station with this package. All services are installed (BAS, HVS-1, HVS-2, TER-1).
Tellicast version is updated to 2.14.4.

Hope that these additional explanations can help.

Best regards,

Laurent

Hi Hugo
I've seen your video and it is nice.
I am also using ffmpeg to do animations, and I am surprised because you said ffmpeg is fast, that is no my experience. Can you share with me which parameters are you using for a video like that?
Thanks.

Ian,

I got an email from Eumetsat pointing to this site:

The link was taken from there.

I wonder why that is not being sent out daily on
info-channel-1 as it does appear to be the latest version.

Like James I have just checked and it is still 2.14.2 being sent.

Thanks for the update.

Since the last Tellicast update (2.14.4), I noticed some intermittent Warnings (not every day) in the Tellicast log:
Do someone know if it is related to the EKU (driver?) or something different?

Laurent,

You get these from time to time, a few are nothing to worry about.  How many a day do you see?

BTW: I see I'm running 2.14.2 - am I out of date?

Hi David, 

Thanks for the quick response.
These warnings appear not every day. And only 1 or 2 warning per day.

Best regards,

I looked in my received folder and the package broadcast today was still showing 2.14.2

Re: EUMETCastView

Ok Rob, I stand corrected. I don't think it would be to difficult to implement such a feature in EUMECastView ...

The internet is lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And lines to code before I sleep,

And lines to code before I sleep.

Re: EUMETCastView

Hi, Hugo.

I disagree with you that an automatic update wouldn't add much.
Some time ago my xrit2pic could only create video in a manual way. As a result I didn't do that very often (actually, rarely).
Now I have it running in a full automatic way (including removing old data), covering western Europe, using RSS, and it is fascinating to see how clouds are forming, moving, hanging against coasts etc. Each day is different. I think the only way to experience that is to have an automatic way of creation; you never know what next day will bring.

Regards,
Rob.

Hi David, Graham,

In the beginning the program will probably not update the video automatically. ( I don't like to use scripts ). The reason is of course that my system exist of two PC's, one receiving the data and one running EUMETCastView and my programs must run on Linux as well as on Windows. But that being said, if you keep the calculated video images from a previous run, a new run ( for example 1 hour later ), will be very fast because the program will only calculate the added video images. For creating the video itself I use 'ffmpeg', which is very fast, (https://www.ffmpeg.org/ ) and runs on Windows and Linux.
Updating the video automatically makes the whole thing more complex, and, in my humble opinion does not add much to the usability of the program.

Kind regards,

Hi Hugo

Wow - that sounds fantastic One other question - will it auto update the animation as new images come in ?

Graham
================================

I guess you know that the existing MSG Data Manager and GeoSatSignal software offers most, if not all, these functions as well, and will run under Linux/WINE? Automate via a scheduled script.
