Short Description
Docker images to host RTMP streams using NGINX
Full Description


Docker image for an RTMP/HLS server running on nginx

NGINX Version 1.13.9
nginx-rtmp-module Version 1.2.1


This image exposes port 1935 for RTMP Steams and has 2 default channels open "live" and "testing".

live (or your first stream name) is also accessable via HLS on port 8080

It also exposes 8080 so you can access http://<your server ip>:8080/stat to see the streaming statistics.

The configuration file is in /opt/nginx/conf/


To run the container and bind the port 1935 to the host machine; run the following:

docker run -p 1935:1935 -p 8080:8080 jasonrivers/nginx-rtmp

Multiple Streams:

You can enable multiple streams on the container by setting RTMP_STREAM_NAMES when launching, This is a comma seperated list of names, E.G.

docker run      \
    -p 1935:1935        \
    -p 8080:8080        \
    -e RTMP_STREAM_NAMES=live,teststream1,teststream2   \

Pushing streams

You can ush your main stream out to other RTMP servers, Currently this is limited to only the first stream in RTMP_STREAM_NAMES (default is live) by setting RTMP_PUSH_URLS when launching, This is a comma seperated list of URLS, EG:

docker run      \
    -p 1935:1935        \
    -p 8080:8080        \
    -e RTMP_PUSH_URLS=rtmp://,rtmp://
