How To Stream Videos With Nginx and JWPlayer on CentOS 6
Step 1 - Install Nginx
rpm -ivh http://nginx.org/packages/centos/6/noarch/RPMS/nginx-release-centos-6-0.el6.ngx.noarch.rpm yum -y install nginx chkconfig nginx on && service nginx restart
Step 2 - Download JWPlayer
You can get the latest version from their website
cd /usr/share/nginx/html wget http://www.longtailvideo.com/download/jwplayer-3359.zip unzip jwplayer-3359.zip
Now that you have your JWPlayer installed in /usr/share/nginx/html/jwplayer you would need to add an HTML file that calls it.
Step 3 - Create an HTML file for playback
You can either embed this code into your existing webpages, or create a new file player.html and save it to /usr/share/nginx/html/player.html
From our previous article we have "big_buck_bunny_720p_surround.flv" flash file available for playback.
Navigate over to your cloud server's IP and playback filename (http://126.96.36.199/player.html in our example):
And you are all done!
