Hi Experts,
We have an IP camera which streams images in H.264 format. My job is to receive these streams and save them into single files in Jpeg format. I totally new to H.264 and have no idea on how to receive it and convert into jpeg frames.

Hope to see some help

    I would recommend you to check with camera vendor for documentation and specification. They may have an SDK as well.

    using mplayer 147 second video
    mplayer -vo jpeg -sstep 5 -endpos 145 file.avi

    File -> Export -> Image sequence

    VideoLan (VLC)

    vlc "C:\YOUR\file\path\file.avi" -V image --image-out-prefix=capname --image-out-ratio=60

    file.avi is the video you want to capture from, capname is the prefix of the saved images, you might want to play around with the ratio (60 means that 1 out of 60 images is captured)
    You can add more commands, for example --image-out-format jpeg will save your caps as jpegs instead of of pngs, --snapshot-path lets you choose where to save your caps.
