Installing ffmpeg and ffprobe:

For correct operation, you need a version of FFmpeg not lower than 5.0

You can use the static assembly proposed by us, or any other one, provided that ffmpeg and ffprobe are used in the environment by the standard name

Generating the default configuration file:

sudo /opt/yucca/yucca server --config emtpy --show-config | sed 's|data_dir = ""|data_dir = "/opt/yucca/data"|' > /opt/yucca/yucca.toml

Also specify your path to save the archive by defining the parameter alloc_dir, pre-create the desired directory, example:

In your case, the path may be different!

sudo mkdir -p /volume1/yucca/alloc_dir
sed -i 's|alloc_dir = ""|alloc_dir = "/volume1/yucca/alloc_dir"|' /opt/yucca/yucca.toml
Make sure everything is correct:
cat /opt/yucca/yucca.toml

Creating an autorun script Upstart init:

sudo tee /etc/init/yucca.conf <<EOF
description "Yucca Stream"
author "Yucca Stream"

start on filesystem or runlevel [2345]
stop on runlevel [!2345]

respawn limit 10 10

    exec /opt/yucca/yucca server --config /opt/yucca/yucca.toml
end script


Updating the Upstart configuration

sudo initctl reload-configuration

Check that yucca has appeared in the list

sudo initctl list | grep yucca

Now you can start the server and check the operation:

sudo initctl start yucca

After launch, the Web interface will be available at http://ip-your-server:9910
