Trying to create a RTMP server for extralife charity stream

Obviously this is a little outdated… but Im doing it for the kids (or raise money for the kids)

I was able to setup the RTMP (extrapolating the data for current versions) … but not actually able to test if its working yet. since I have to stream stuff to it and then connect OBS to it to see if its working…

Any tips/pointers?

I’ve been able to get one stream working.

Not able to do lots of stress testing without more hardware.

Interesting. I’ve never set anything like this up before. Curious to see the setup!

What would you like to see?

Docker has a few RTMP-NGINX containers and you can also have the same server provide a streaming feed with another docker container.

I went the docker route because of I didn’t want to deal with updating NGINX manually.

I do it the manual way because I don’t trust most people on the internet

You basically:
install some packages
wget two files
make install
Set up the nginx config
Open a firewall port
Start daemon
