Membrane RTMP Plugin View Source API Docs CircleCI

This package provides RTMP server which listens to a connection from a client. After establishing connection it receives RTMP stream, demux it and outputs H264 video and AAC audio. At this moment only one client can connect to the server.

It is part of Membrane Multimedia Framework.


The package can be installed by adding membrane_rtmp_plugin to your list of dependencies in mix.exs:

def deps do
    {:membrane_rtmp_plugin, "~> 0.2.0"}


In order to successfully build and install the plugin, you need to have ffmpeg >= 4.4 installed on your system


Example Server pipeline can look like this:

defmodule Example.Server do
  use Membrane.Pipeline

  @port 5_000

  @impl true
  def handle_init(_opts) do
    directory = "hls_output"

    spec = %ParentSpec{
      children: %{
        :rtmp_server => %Membrane.RTMP.Bin{port: @port},
        :hls => %Membrane.HTTPAdaptiveStream.SinkBin{
          manifest_module: Membrane.HTTPAdaptiveStream.HLS,
          target_window_duration: 20 |> Membrane.Time.seconds(),
          muxer_segment_duration: 2 |> Membrane.Time.seconds(),
          persist?: false,
          storage: %Membrane.HTTPAdaptiveStream.Storages.FileStorage{directory: directory}
      links: [
        |> via_out(:audio)
        |> via_in(Pad.ref(:input, :audio), options: [encoding: :AAC])
        |> to(:hls),
        |> via_out(:video)
        |> via_in(Pad.ref(:input, :video), options: [encoding: :H264])
        |> to(:hls)

    {{:ok, spec: spec}, %{}}

It will listen to a connection from a client and convert RTMP stream into HLS playlist.

Run it with:

{:ok, pid} = Example.Server.start_link()

After this run ffmpeg which will connect to the running server:

ffmpeg -re -i testsrc.flv -f flv -c:v copy -c:a copy rtmp://localhost:5000

testsrc.flv can be downloaded from our tests.

To run this example you will need following extra dependency

{:membrane_http_adaptive_stream_plugin, github: "membraneframework/membrane_http_adaptive_stream_plugin"}
