MovieNight stream server
This is a single-instance streaming server with chat. Originally written to replace Rabbit as the platform for watching movies with a group of people online.
- Go 1.13 or newer
- GNU Make
Older Go Versions
You can install a newer version of Go alongside your OS's distribution by following the guide here: https://golang.org/doc/manage-install
Once you have that setup add an enviromnent variable named
set it to the version you installed (eg,
1.14.1). The Makefile will now use
the newer version.
Compile and install
You have to :
git clone https://github.com/zorchenhimer/MovieNight, go into the source directory
- choose your
TARGEToneof "android darwin dragonfly freebsd linux nacl netbsd openbsd plan9 solaris windows";
- choose your
ARCHoneof "386 amd64 amd64p32 arm arm64 ppc64 ppc64le mips mipsle mips64 mips64le mips64p32 mips64p32leppc s390 s390x sparc sparc64";
make TARGET=windows ARCH=386;
- and run
$ git clone https://github.com/zorchenhimer/MovieNight $ cd MovieNight $ make TARGET=windows ARCH=386 $ ./MovieNight
MovieNight provides a Dockerfile and a docker-compose file to run MovieNight using Docker.
Building the Container
Install Docker, clone the repository and build:
docker build -t movienight .
Running the Container
Run the image once it's built:
docker run -d -p 8089:8089 -p 1935:1935 [-v ./settings.json:/config/settings.json] movienight
- -d runs the container in the background.
- -p 8089:8089 maps the MovieNight web interface to port 8089 on the server.
- -p 1935:1935 maps the RTMP port for OBS to port 1935 (default RTMP port) on the server.
- -v ./settings.json:/config/settings.json maps the file settings.json into the container. [OPTIONAL]
docker-compose will automatically build the image, no need to build it manually.
Install Docker and docker-compose, clone the repository and change into the directory ./docker. Then run:
docker-compose up -d
This docker-compose file will create a volume called movienight-config and automatically add the standard settings.json file to it. It also maps port 8089 and 1935 to the same ports of the host.
Notes for Running Using docker-compose
The container needs to be restarted to apply any changes you make to settings.json.
FreeNAS-FreeBSD build and run
A FreeNAS & TrueNAS plugin had been released. You should find MovieNight into the plugin section of you management GUI. However you still can make an manual plugin deployment, documentation here If you prefer to make an Jail without using the plugin management, a script wich setup an Jail and build and run MovieNight into that Jail as been written, you'll find it here freenas-iocage-movienight
Now you can use OBS to push a stream to the server. Set the stream URL to
and enter the stream key.
Now you can view the stream at
There is a video only version at
and a chat only version at
The default listen port is
:8089. It can be changed by providing a new port
Usage of .\MovieNight.exe: -e bool Whether or not to download approved emotes on startup (default "false") -k string Stream key, to protect your stream (default: "") -l string host:port of the MovieNight (default ":8089") -r string host:port of the RTMP server (default ":1935") -f string the settings file you want to use (default "./settings.json")
MovieNight’s configuration is controlled by
AdminPassword: users can enter

LetThemLurk: if false, announces when a user enters and leaves chat.
ListenAddress: the port that MovieNight listens on, formatted as
LogFile: the path of the MovieNight logfile, relative to the executable.
LogLevel: the log level, defaults to
MaxMessageCount: the number of messages displayed in the chat window.
NewPin: if true, regenerates

RegenAdminPass: if true, regenerates
AdminPasswordwhen the server starts.
RoomAccess: the access policy of the chat room; this is managed by the application and should not be edited manually.
RoomAccessPin: if set, serves as the password required to enter the chatroom.
SessionKey: key used for storing session data (cookies etc.)
StreamKey: the key that OBS will use to connect to MovieNight.
StreamStats: if true, prints statistics for the stream on server shutdown.
TitleLength: the maximum allowed length for the stream title (set with
TwitchClientID: OAuth client ID for the Twitch API, used for fetching emotes
TwitchClientSecret: OAuth client secret for the Twitch API; can be generated locally with curl.
WrappedEmotesOnly: if true, requires that emote codes be wrapped in colons or brackets; e.g.,
RateLimitChat: the number of seconds between each message a non-privileged user can post in chat.
RateLimitNick: the number of seconds before a user can change their nick again.
