Connecting an RTMP Publisher Source

Media Gateway/SRT Gateway supports either publisher or consumer RTMP input streams: 

  • Publisher — Stream sent directly to the HMG/HSG's IP address
  • Consumer — Stream available for HMG/HSG to access on an RTMP server

There are a few requirements when connecting Media Gateway/SRT Gateway as an RTMP publisher. Therefore, the procedure for creating an RTMP route as publisher is shown below:

  1. On your source streaming device, output an RTMP stream with the following URL format:
    where, <IP> is the IP address of the Media Gateway/SRT Gateway and <stream_name> is the desired name of the stream.


    For RTMP Publisher mode, the port must be 1935 and the Application Name must be 'live'. Currently, neither of these options is configurable.

  2. On the Media Gateway/SRT Gateway, create a new route. See Creating a Route for more details. In the New Route screen:
    1. Populate desired route and source names.
    2. In Protocol, select RTMP.
    3. Under the RTMP Settings section for Mode, click Publisher.
    4. In Stream name, enter the stream name as defined in step 1.
    5. Click the Add Destination button and enter the desired output streaming parameters to send a UDP, SRT, RTP, or HLS stream to your destination device.
  3. On the Media Gateway/SRT Gateway, start the stream. See Starting, Stopping, and Deleting a Route for details.

In the Route List screen, the status indicators notify you if there are any issues receiving the incoming RTMP stream. See Route List Screen for a description of the status indicators.
