WTB full guide to setup newest nginx with rtmp
i recently wanted to setup the above myself but i couldnt find recent guides that work for me. I know this is a pretty tech savvy ?forum? so i thought i'd ask here. Desired OS would be Debian 8. What i exactly need is newest nginx with rtmp module and config that has authentication to use with Open Broadcaster (OBS). I don't want any others to use the rtmp server to stream, just to watch mine. Additionally the uplaoded h264+aac stream should not be re-encoded. Lastly i need a index.html that displays my stream in some sort of web player (jwplayer, videojs, etc). i also heard about hls but i'm not yet sure what the benefits are.
i would pay 10 euro if someone could write me a working guide for that. Thanks.
Uhm wow, €10 would make me a burger, not an essay.
At Burger King you could get like 10 burgers #america
he's asking for an installer basically.
That's about 100 euros for this job.
100 Euros? Seems like what he is asking is very simple (but I have no idea since I don't use nginx)
Although if you're gonna stream the videos through a web page, why bother with OBS or RTMP?
https://obsproject.com/forum/resources/how-to-set-up-your-own-private-rtmp-server-using-nginx.50/ covers most of it.

@mosan7763 I won't write a tutorial for this, there are plenty of those around the net. But, if you want to, I can setup for you a working nginx-rtmp with authentication and a simple index.html with jwplayer for free.
thank you very much. everything running perfectly.
If you are looking for some pre-compiled binary debian packages, I have compiled nginx 1.9.6 with rtmp module for debian 8 amd64 for my personal use. Comes without any warranty and of course no automated security updates, but it might give you a start if you are not familiar with compiling debian packages.
thank you but i'm fine.
BTW, did anybody find a solution how to embed such a rtmp video stream in html5 without flash?
I have a working solution with flowplayer so far which requires flash; and I want to get rid of flash.
Unfortunately everything I found so far was that rtmp only works with flash. html5 supports rtsp; but unfortunately nginx does rtmp and no rtsp.
Why would you use rtmp by Macromedia/Flash?
Well, because it worked very well together with nginx as rtmp server/proxy.
Background: My live stream source is a private IP camera offering a RTSP stream. I do not want to expose that IP camera to the public internet (security conerns). I installed nginx with rtmp module on a LES instance. A VPN tunnel connects the camera to the nginx server. The rtmp part of my nginx config looks like this:
exec_pull avconv -i rtsp://192.168.186.10:554/12 -c copy -an -f flv rtmp://127.0.0.1:10015/$app
This also has one big advantage for me: nginx starts ONE avconv process to retrieve the video source when the first client connects and kills it after the last client has disconnected; without spawning an own avconv process for each client. So I only have to transfer the video stream only once through the vpn tunnel even if 10 clients are watching it. I really like this conecept.
Is it possible to build such an efficient video stream proxy also with RTSP?
Because it worked quite well with nginx-rtmp, that's why I use RTMP so far.
I have not tried this method but maybe if you can pipe the rtmp stream to ffmpeg to output a more friendly format which does not require flash player.
it isnt the format that requires flash, it is rtmp afaik. i havent found a player that supports rtmp but uses html5 or similar. i personally stream with OBS and h264+aac but i need a flash player to watch the stream (over rtmp) in browsers.
Okay, I got one step further. By using live555ProxyServer I am now able to actually provide quite the same thing I did before with nginx-rtmp - but now with rtsp. I can successfully playback the live video stream by using vlc and the rtsp:// url provided by live555ProxyServer on my server.
But now, how to embed this into a webpage? After digging deepter into html5 and rtsp, it looks like even rtsp isn't supported by html5. Instead there might be basic support for Apple HLS; which makes it even more complicated. Quite frustrating. Everybody wants to move away from Flash and towards html5 - but why did they make life that hard when implementing html5.
there is a vultr tutorial that explains how to compile nginx with rtmp and then setup HLS with nginx. Can I get like 6 dollars for some cigarettes?
