I would like ffmpeg to be autolaunched from nginx when it starts and provide a converted dash stream for the users who visit my webserver.

Right now I can go to:


but for this I have to run

ffmpeg -re -i rtmp://remotestream.com/twitch -vcodec libx264 -vprofile baseline -strict -2 -acodec aac -ar 44100 -ac 2 -f flv rtmp://localhost:1935/dash/twitch



Use the exec command like in this tutorial:


  • location /dash { # Serve DASH fragments root /tmp; add_header Cache-Control no-cache; add_header Access-Control-Allow-Origin *; } and how do I tell it at the folder to use that? – defiler Nov 11 '15 at 9:10
