Republish MPEG-TS with RTP wrapping

Mike 2016-05-10 16:15:04 UTC in Nimble Streamer

Hi there

I have a requirement to publish the MPEG-TS with RTP wrapper.
Do the Nimble support that ?

At the moment it's not yet supported unfortunately.

Thank you.
Please consider to add this feature in next release

Any update on the possibility to add this feature?

Any update?

Denis Slobodskoy 2019-04-01 08:01:49 UTC

Sorry, there is no any progress in RTP support, and we currently don't plan to add it.

I'm surprised 2 such big streaming companies are so incompatible and have done nothing in the last few years to make things any better.

WMSPanel/Nimble and Stalker/Ministra middleware from Infomir :(

I want to provide my streams via STB (MAG 254 etc) to my customers and use Stalker but MAG+Stalker will only record RTP.

Can you advise any middleware software that works with Nimble streams via STB (e.g., MAG or Dreamlink) and allows recording/timeshift/EPG PVR functions?

Denis Slobodskoy 2019-04-02 00:55:06 UTC

You may put FFmpeg in a middle to convert streams from Nimble to RTP with command like this:
/usr/bin/ffmpeg -i http://<nimble_ip>:8081/live/stream/mpeg.2ts -c copy -f rtp_mpegts rtp://
Use server-side task to manage such processes:

Thanks for the idea.
My streams (70 of them) are already being encoded in ffmpeg to x264 RTMP to Nimble. It seems a lot of resources to encode them again to RTP (I already have 5 computers at 80% CPU).
If anybody else knows of any IPTV middleware that has better recording support than Stalker / Ministra please let me know.

Paul 2019-04-02 11:41:39 UTC

Actually maybe the CPU won't be too intensive as it's only changing the video container / wrapper.
I will try it.
I also found this, maybe "tee" will accomplish the same result and not use much more resources.

Hello Paul,

Transmuxing from HLS/MPEG-TS/RTMP to RTP should not take much resources as stream is not transcoded, but only re-packed to a different container.

Thank you.

Hi Denis! Thanks for the command, I was wondering how to do the same thing. The question I have is how do I actually publish the RTP stream?

(can I use nimble or do I need NGINX to publish it?)

Paul 2019-04-07 17:59:47 UTC

Nimble and NGINX do not support RTP.

ffmpeg send it to other software which uses RTP, in my case Stalker/Ministra IPTV middleware.
