  • Nginx + SRT streaming - I need a push in the right direction
    3 projects | /r/selfhosted | 21 Apr 2023
    Here is one example how to feed SRT stream to ffmpeg. Try streaming directly to this via OBS first and confirm it works before stacking more software between endpoints. https://github.com/Haivision/srt/issues/506
  • 4 Different ways to Broadcast SRT Streams

    SRT, or Secure Reliable Transport, is a type of streaming protocol that provides enhanced security and reliability for video streaming. SRT is becoming increasingly popular among broadcasters and streamers including industry stalwarts such as ESPN because of its ability to deliver high-quality content over challenging network conditions and for its ability to make contribution and stream ingestion easy. SRT streams provide improved security, low latency, and flexibility and is supported by a global community of developers all contributing to the open-source project. Because of the power of SRT streams, Dolby.io Real-Time Streaming has decided to launch support with an SRT open beta program.

    SRT is an open-source protocol developed by streaming technology provider Haivision. Known for its security, reliability, compatibility, and low-latency streaming it is the preferred protocol for members of the SRT Alliance. This protocol does not rely on a single codec, which allows developers to pair it with any audio and video codecs they desire.

    Depending on what kind of implementation you're looking to achieve, it might be good to take a look at the GitHub page for SRT: https://github.com/Haivision/srt there are a number of contributors to the project. I'm not sure but perhaps there is some guidance on getting consultation/support to be found there.
  • Project Lightspeed A self-contained, sub-second, open source, livestream server
    6 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 3 Jan 2021
    This project is pretty cool, I’ll tinker around with it tomorrow.

    As an aside, I’ve noticed you’re building out your own stream protocol stack (FTL/LightSpeed). What’s the reasoning there? Seems slightly inconvenient to have to “hack” OBS to make the output stream work. Will FTL support be merged into OBS in the future?

    If you’re just trying to avoid the latency of RTMP then I might suggest considering the existing SRT protocol[1]. It’s been open source for a while and is well-established(native support in OBS core and optional in FFMPEG). Seems to already solve a lot of the transport-level stuff that you’re working on with FTL.
