Creates an acceptor which receives an HTTP POST binary upload. The acceptor will be opened on a specified port and the uploaded media file will be written on a specified directory. The acceptor then waits for an HTTP POST from a client with the media file as payload. The media file is then written on the specified location in the server.

This function has the following parameters:

Parameter Name Mandatory Default Value Description
port true null The port value to bind on
targetFolder true null The folder where the binary upload will be serialized

The sending client must conform to the following:

  • It must send the data by way of HTTP POST
  • The POST request must be in http/1.1 format
  • A StreamName must be provided in the POST line. This will then be the filename of the media file (mp4) when written. (e.g., POST /mystreamname HTTP/1.1\r\n)
  • Content-type must be set to video/mp4 or application/octet-stream
  • Content-length must be used. This function is intended for uploading VOD MP4 so the EMS will expect that the size of the file is already known
