Publishing live streams

From FFmpeg

If you have a video file with H.264 video and AAC audio:

ffmpeg -re -i INPUT_FILE_NAME -c copy -f flv rtmp://localhost/live/STREAM_NAME

Or if you have a video file that is encoded in other audio/video format:

ffmpeg -re -i INPUT_FILE_NAME -c:v libx264 -preset veryfast -tune zerolatency -c:a aac -ar 44100 -f flv rtmp://localhost/live/STREAM_NAME

From OBS

Settings -> Stream

Stream Type : Custom Streaming Server

URL : rtmp://localhost/live

Stream key : STREAM_NAME?sign=expires-HashValue (sign parameter required only if publish auth is enabled)

Accessing the live stream

RTMP

rtmp://localhost/live/STREAM_NAME

http-flv

http://localhost:8000/live/STREAM_NAME.flv

websocket-flv

    if (flvjs.isSupported()) {

        });

        flvPlayer.play();
    }

Logging

Modify the logging type

It is now possible to modify the logging type which determines which console outputs are shown.

There are a total of 4 possible options:

  • 0 - Don't log anything
  • 1 - Log errors
  • 2 - Log errors and generic info
  • 3 - Log everything (debug)

Modifying the logging type is easy - just add a new value logType in the config and set it to a value between 0 and 4. By default, this is set to show errors and generic info internally (setting 2).

For custom log handling, see events for log message logMessage, errorMessage, debugMessage, and ffDebugMessage.

The logger events noted above are fired independently of the log level set by logType

const NodeMediaServer = require('node-media-server');

const config = {
  logType: 3,

  rtmp: {
    port: 1935,
    chunk_size: 60000,
    gop_cache: true,
    ping: 30,
    ping_timeout: 60
  },
  http: {
    port: 8000,
    allow_origin: '*'
  }
};

var nms = new NodeMediaServer(config)
nms.run();

Authentication

Encryption URL consists of:

rtmp://hostname:port/appname/stream?sign=expires-HashValue
http://hostname:port/appname/stream.flv?sign=expires-HashValue
ws://hostname:port/appname/stream.flv?sign=expires-HashValue

1.Publish or play address:

rtmp://192.168.0.10/live/stream

2.Config set auth->secret: 'nodemedia2017privatekey'

const config = {
  rtmp: {
    port: 1935,
    chunk_size: 60000,
    gop_cache: true,
    ping: 30,
    ping_timeout: 60
  },
  http: {
    port: 8000,
    allow_origin: '*'
  },
  auth: {
    play: true,
    publish: true,
    secret: 'nodemedia2017privatekey'
  }
}

3.expiration time: 2017/8/23 11:25:21 ,The calculated expiration timestamp is

1503458721

4.The combination HashValue is:

HashValue = md5("/live/stream-1503458721-nodemedia2017privatekey”)
HashValue = 80c1d1ad2e0c2ab63eebb50eed64201a

5.Final request address

rtmp://192.168.0.10/live/stream?sign=1503458721-80c1d1ad2e0c2ab63eebb50eed64201a
The 'sign' keyword can not be modified

Rtsp/Rtmp Relay

NodeMediaServer implement RTSP and RTMP relay with ffmpeg.

Static pull

The static pull mode is executed at service startup and reconnect after failure. It could be a live stream or a file. In theory, it is not limited to RTSP or RTMP protocol.

relay: {
  ffmpeg: '/usr/local/bin/ffmpeg',
  tasks: [
    {
      app: 'cctv',
      mode: 'static',
      edge: 'rtsp://admin:admin888@192.168.0.149:554/ISAPI/streaming/channels/101',
      name: '0_149_101',
      rtsp_transport : 'tcp' //['udp', 'tcp', 'udp_multicast', 'http']
    }, {
        app: 'iptv',
        mode: 'static',
        edge: 'rtmp://live.hkstv.hk.lxdns.com/live/hks',
        name: 'hks'
      }, {
        app: 'mv',
        mode: 'static',
        edge: '/Volumes/ExtData/Movies/Dancing.Queen-SD.mp4',
        name: 'dq'
      }
  ]
}

Dynamic pull

When the local server receives a play request. If the stream does not exist, pull the stream from the configured edge server to local. When the stream is not played by the client, it automatically disconnects.

relay: {
  ffmpeg: '/usr/local/bin/ffmpeg',
  tasks: [
    {
      app: 'live',
      mode: 'pull',
      edge: 'rtmp://192.168.0.20',
    }
  ]
}

Dynamic push

When the local server receives a publish request. Automatically push the stream to the edge server.

relay: {
  ffmpeg: '/usr/local/bin/ffmpeg',
  tasks: [
    {
      app: 'live',
      mode: 'push',
      edge: 'rtmp://192.168.0.10',
    }
  ]
}

Fission

Real-time transcoding multi-resolution output fission

fission: {
  ffmpeg: '/usr/local/bin/ffmpeg',
  tasks: [
    {
      rule: "game/*",
      model: [
        {
          ab: "128k",
