Use RTMP play support for live pull settings

Joël 2015-04-01 12:49:55 UTC in Nimble Streamer

I've been waiting for this function for a long time.
Is it stable enough to use for a live streaming solution from origin to edge, with live pull settings?

Live encoder -> Nimble origin -> Nimble Edge -> webplayer

I was testing, pulling a hls stream, but it won't work smooth on the player site.

with pulling a rtmp stream, instead of republish a rtmp stream. I don't have to suffer with firewalls and nat forwarding on the edge location. On the edge location I have only a public internet connection. The players will stream the livestream on the local network on this edge location. So RTMP play support will be perfect. Great Job Nimble support team!!!!

Hi Joel,

Thanks for tracking Nimble Streamer release notes ;)

We will officially announce this feature set tomorrow. This will include instructions for enabling RTMP playback for Flash players. As for pull - it works fine out of the box, just check the RTMP fag in RTMP incoming stream settings. among HLS or DASH.

As for stability, we haven't yet made any benchmark for it. So you can try it on a test application and see how it works for you.

Hi Yury rtmp pulling from Nimble-origin to Nimble-edge works perfect. Its running for several hours now. In my case the best solution I think. Maybe a second good option is, to have rtmp pulling like a nimble route. A stream from origin to edge is only running by a request than. But i'm not sure if the transmuxing to hls works so great at the start on the edge site for the players.

But anyhow i'm glad with this new function.

Hi Joel,

Thank you for the feedback, we're glad RTMP pull works smoothly for you.

Regarding pulling by request - we have this in our wishlist, I believe we'll make it possible. The mentioned proper transmuxing in this case is exactly why we still keep it on hold as we need to implement this carefully.

But anyhow, i'm glad with this new feature.
a little bit extra traffic is not big problem.
