streaming video to mobile phones
November 02, 2017 05:30PM
I'm running nginx-1.12.2 on a centos 6 server and I've had success
with it streaming live video to a mobile phone. I followed the
instructions here:
https://www.vultr.com/docs/setup-nginx-on-ubuntu-to-stream-live-hls-video
this page uses mpegurl m3u8 as the streaming protocol. My question is
are there any other protocols that work with mobile phones? And how
would I specify that in nginx.conf? I've tried webm to ffserver but
only got video on a computer. Thanks for any advice.
ps: I've left the live stream running and I'd appreciate feedback on
whether your phone can play the video (or not) at:
http://198.91.92.112/hls.html. Please let me know if it plays for you
or not and what kind of phone you have. Thanks again.

Any protocol can work with mobile phones once you get the right application
to play it. HLS (which you called "megurl m3u8") is widely adopted on mobile
platforms, so it's a good choice.

thanks but there are several applications in a chain to stream video. Mine is:
video source --> ffmpeg --> broadcast server (nginx) --> web player
(flowplayer embedded in html5)
which part of the chain would you be referring to for the right application??

You can use nginx as video streaming server. Its mean you can push or pull
to/from nginx. Create hls playlist and your player can stream video.

this topic is nothing to do with a playlist, it's about live streaming video.

please avoid top posting if you can
