Forward deploy example

SRS can forward stream to other RTMP server.

Suppose the server ip is 192.168.1.170

Forward will copy streams to other RTMP server:

  • Master: Encoder publish stream to master, which will forward to slave.
  • Slave: Slave forward stream to slave.

We use master to listen at 1935, and slave listen at 19350.

Step 1, get SRS​

For detail, read GIT

git clone https://github.com/ossrs/srs
cd srs/trunk

Or update the exists code:

git pull

Step 2, build SRS​

For detail, read Build

./configure && make

Step 3, config master SRS​

For detail, read Forward

Save bellow as config, or use conf/forward.master.conf:

# conf/forward.master.conf
listen 1935;
max_connections 1000;
pid ./objs/srs.master.pid;
srs_log_tank file;
srs_log_file ./objs/srs.master.log;
vhost __defaultVhost__ {
forward {
enabled on;
destination 127.0.0.1:19350;
}
}

Step 4, start master SRS​

For detail, read Forward

./objs/srs -c conf/forward.master.conf

Step 5, config slave SRS​

For detail, read Forward

Save bellow as config, or use conf/forward.slave.conf:

# conf/forward.slave.conf
listen 19350;
pid ./objs/srs.slave.pid;
srs_log_tank file;
srs_log_file ./objs/srs.slave.log;
vhost __defaultVhost__ {
}

Step 6, start slave SRS​

For detail, read Forward

./objs/srs -c conf/forward.slave.conf

Note: Ensure the master and slave is ok, no error in log.

[winlin@dev6 srs]$ sudo netstat -anp|grep srs
tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:1935 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 7826/srs
tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:19350 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 7834/srs

Step 7, start Encoder​

For detail, read Forward

Use FFMPEG to publish stream:

    for((;;)); do \
./objs/ffmpeg/bin/ffmpeg -re -i ./doc/source.flv \
-c copy \
-f flv rtmp://192.168.1.170/live/livestream; \
sleep 1; \
done

Or use FMLE to publish:

FMS URL: rtmp://192.168.1.170/live
Stream: livestream

The stream in SRS:

  • Stream publish by encoder: rtmp://192.168.1.170:1935/live/livestream
  • The stream forward by master SRS: rtmp://192.168.1.170:19350/live/livestream
  • Play stream on master: rtmp://192.168.1.170/live/livestream
  • Play strema on slave: rtmp://192.168.1.170:19350/live/livestream

Step 8, play the stream on master​

For detail, read Forward

RTMP url is: rtmp://192.168.1.170:1935/live/livestream

User can use vlc to play the RTMP stream.

Note: Please replace all ip 192.168.1.170 to your server ip.

Step 9, play the stream on slave​

For detail, read Forward

RTMP url is: rtmp://192.168.1.170:19350/live/livestream

User can use vlc to play the RTMP stream.

Note: Please replace all ip 192.168.1.170 to your server ip.
