Used this to setup a YouTube like service for a media editing team on an intranet, between this guide, and a little php and SQL. Was able to deliver what they wanted without having to build a java app through Red5. Was a huge help. Didn't realize nginx could do this. Running on CentOS 6 VM via a intranet XenServer flawlessly.
Works great. Set up a Docker version of it (see https://github.com/DvdGiessen/nginx-rtmp-docker ), so installing Docker (`sudo apt-get install docker.io`) and running `sudo docker run -dp 1935:1935 dvdgiessen/nginx-rtmp-docker` should do everything.
Thanks to you were able to stream our whole gaming event at school.
Twenty PC's on one server and it works fine, not on an raspberry pi but on a normal PC and of cures an 1gbit lan.
With the push function and a rented vserver streaming on multiple platforms was also no problem, one stream out to the rtmp on the vserver and than with 10gbit up to the web.
Good stuff to deal with ISP oversea speed throttle and lower down resource use.
There is a way to add stream key for OBS (to rtmp server)?
I'm using a VPS and this VPS also running my small website.
I'm afraid of someone will know my VPS public IP (since it can be discover by reverse website IP).
Since OBS didn't support proxy/socks so I can't tunnel to VPS to make a local proxy/socks and using block all IP from using RTMP protocol except localhost.
Great post! I was able to follow it and within a short period of time I have built a Docker-based solution to stream content via HLS protocol and consume it in a web application using video.js library. Here is my GitHub repo https://github.com/codeworksio/docker-streaming-server
It took me a while to start using this feature in OBS.
For those who are having trouble transmitting to Facebook, I have adopted a very simple solution that yielded results: Just omit the Facebook server port in the nginx.conf file, like this: "push rtmp://live-api-s.facebook.com/rtmp/... "
Thus, the stream was received in the preview of Facebook.
Beside that, this solution allowed me to stop using recording settings to stream over UDP, since the RTMP stream are easily accessed through VLC.
Everything works great! However Youtube is giving me a RED stream status with the error: "Please change the video's container format. The current container format is not correct for this configuration." This seems to be a 'badContainer' error, any ideas why and how to fix? I would like a GREEN status in Youtube!
Here's my problem: I need to stream sports events to youtube, the camera we're using outputs to hdmi, we use an elgato usb capture device to encode the video feed and outputs it via usb to a computer. Than we grab that encoded feed with OBS and stream it to youtube. Except that the camera needs to be close to the computer (due to hdmi cable length limitations) and we'd like to put the camera farther away from the computer...
Using a raspberry and a usb capture device, would it be possible to stream to the computer over wifi or ethernet?
Something like this:
camera > usb capture card > raspberry > network > computer > youtube
THis is fantastic. Thank you very much for the post. Quick question do you know if there is a way to buffer the frames for the stream? Say if you have slow internet the frames get uploaded. Yeah i understand there would be a bigger delay but is this possiable?
