You can either download a stand-alone OpenVSX archive or a bundled self-extracting installer of OpenVCX which also includes OpenVSX. You install it by executing the download file as a shell script.
cd <Your Download Directory>
chmod u+x ./openvcx_linux_x86_32_v1.8.0.b124.bin
If you are only interested in obtaining OpenVSX Video Streaming Processor then you can interrupt the installation script after it has finished unpacking the software contents.
OpenVSX will be installed in the following location:
cd <Your Download Directory>/openvcx_linux_x86_32_v1.8.0/openvsx/
OpenVSX is typically used to process a single streaming task and exits once the task is completed.
To show various available OpenVSX commands refer to the help output.
./bin/vsx -h stream
./bin/vsx -h capture
OpenVSX-WP (Web Portal) runs as a daemon to automatically control one or more OpenVSX Video Streaming Processor child processes and grant viewing access to your media directory.
Edit ./conf/vsxwp.conf and set media= to the directory where you would like to retrieve media files from.
