NGINX RTMP Dockerfile

This Dockerfile installs NGINX configured with nginx-rtmp-module, ffmpeg and some default settings for HLS live streaming.

Note: in the current state, this is just an experimental project to play with RTMP and HLS.

How to use

  1. Build and run the container (docker build -t nginx_rtmp . & docker run -p 1935:1935 -p 8080:80 --rm nginx_rtmp).

  2. Stream your live content to rtmp://localhost:1935/encoder/stream_name where stream_name is the name of your stream.

  3. In Safari, VLC or any HLS compatible browser / player, open http://localhost:8080/hls/stream_name.m3u8. Note that the first time, it might take a few (10-15) seconds before the stream works. This is because when you start streaming to the server, it needs to generate the first segments and the related playlists.


You can’t perform that action at this time.
