RTMP/HLS stream within Docker

Free RTMP/HLS stream within Docker

MistServer is a streaming media server that works well in any streaming environment even on a Raspberry Pi! It bridges the gap between dedicated media servers and web servers, performing the best of both worlds when it comes to media streaming delivery.

The opensource version works best with HLS live streaming (gaming) with programs such as Open Broadcaster Software (OBS), FFsplit or Xsplit! If you want more options such as VOD, buy a pro-license.

If you are looking for a simple host, just choose something like DigitalOcean, for 5 dollars a month you are up and streaming..!

docker create --name=mistserver \
--net=host \
-v <path to config>:/config \
-v <path to video>:/media \ 
  • --net=host - Recommended! You can change ports within Mistserver Protocols.
  • -v /config - config and log files
  • -v /media - video and audio files
Special note - If you'd like to run Mistserver without requiring --net=host (NOT recommended) then you will need the following ports in your docker create command:
  • -p 4242 - Web UI
  • -p 1935 - RTMP
  • -p 554 - RTSP
  • -p 8080 - HTTP / HLS
  • -v /etc/localhost:/etc/localhost:ro - for timesync (read-only)
  1. Webui: http://mydomain.tld:4242 and enter a username/password.
  2. Click on "Enable protocols" and change ports if necessary.
  3. Enter a "Human readable name" and set a thick to "Force JSON file save".
