How to use rtmp

Posted June 24, 2021 213 views

Hello! Dear Community members.

So I have set up a Digital Ocean Droplet to host A node app, or two of them more precisely.

I use Nginx to serve localhost:8000 (which is the main app) for /main/ locations.

Also, I have node-media-server app running on localhost:8888 and localhost:1935, I successfully show the admin panel provided by the package using the same Nginx

But how can I also listen on 1935 port and pass the traffic to node-media-server?

Ideally, I want to be able to stream to my app using OBS like this


and receive the RTMP with my node-media-server.

PS. I don’t have a domain currently.

Please let me know if You need more details.
