I am trying to create a RTMP server to stream video files from my Linux server to the internet/network. I have been able to successfully use ffmpeg to stream to other RTMP servers like youtube, but how do I go about hosting my own on my RTMP server locally?

I have tried looking into ffserver, but is this what I need to create a local RTMP server? If so could someone give me basic syntax or examples to get it working?

Thanks for any information.


I personally had good experiences with crtmpserver, it should be available in Gentoo repositories. I just followed the tutorial on the official wiki.
