The document explained that the CouchPotato tool allows for a video stream to be collected either as a video file in AVI file format or as series of still images of frames from the stream in JPG format.

"[CouchPotato] utilizes FFmpeg [software] for video and image encoding and decoding as well as RTSP [The Real Time Streaming Protocol] connectivity. CouchPotato relies on being launched in an ICE v3 Fire and Collect compatible loader," the statement overviewing the tool concluded.

The creation of the CouchPotato user guide dates back to February 14, 2014.
