    If you want to have a complete setup along with YouTube style browsing of your recordings take a look at https://github.com/WWBN/AVideo. Also self hosted. Live stream and record is accomplished through nginx/rtmp and config would be similar to using a Docker container, but Avideo (youphptube) is a more robust offering that might be worth it for your use case. Avideo is harder to setup but is a nice product.

    Awesome thanks for the input man! I’m definitely interested and it’s cool to see that memory wasn’t too much of an issue but CPU instead. I am really interested in this project called SuperAlgos which seems like it could take advantage of this for clusters, I’ll let you know how it turns out once I get stuff ordered and set up!
