Nginx-Rtmp Video Server

Last updated 2 months ago

Nginx-Rtmp is capable of providing high quality video streaming with no additional streaming engine costs. Many of the features enjoyed by other integrations are possible however we consider nginx-rtmp to be a hobby platform and not a professional streaming engine.

View the full list and comparison of supported features.

When will TV Stations be available?

Currently there is no professional technology to deliver Server Side streaming. Other software may provide a similar function, however you should be warned that most use EXT-X-DISCONTINUITY-SEQUENCE tag to join the video files which is not supported on many platforms and does not guarantee a smooth transition between video files or live streaming.

Our team are currently working on developing a professional solution that joins VoD files and live streams correctly and professionally, by joining at the keyframe. This ensures the broadcast can be delivered to your end users, or stream targets without glitches or broken transitions.

If you would like to be notified when this is available, please vote on the feature. We will notify the primary contact of your account once it is available.

Install Nginx-Rtmp

  1. You will require a MediaCP Video Subscription or Perpetual license
  2. Please open ports 19350 and 19360 in your firewall:
  3. Ensure MediaCP has SSL installed
  4. Run the following on your server:
    /root/init --install-nginx-rtmp
  5. Navigate to
  6. Now you can create new NginxRtmp services in the panel

Can i change nginx-rtmp ports?

Ports 19350 and 19360 are used by default in order to not conflict with other streaming engines that might be installed on the system. It is not possible to change the nginx-rtmp default ports at the moment, they must remain as 19350 and 19360.
