testing WebRTC as RTMP re-publishing

Testing WebRTC broadcasting to the RTMP Server

Test WebRTC broadcast video stream from Google Chrome browser with republishing as RTMP

Use these instructions for quick installation and configuration of the server. In addition to that, you can connect to our demo server to perform the tests. For testing, we use a virtual camera that plays a video clip.

Test plan

  1. Connect to WCS server
  2. Start broadcasting the video stream from the webcam in the Google Chrome browser
  3. Start playback of the broadcast stream on the RTMP server


Republishing WebRTC stream to the local RTMP server

1. Log in to the web-interface of the server



2. Select “WebRTC as RTMP” from the menu on the left side of the page


3. On the page opened, allow Flash in browser settings if necessary and in the “RTMP Target Details” section, specify:

  • RTMP URL – address of the RTMP server
  • Stream – the name of the video stream

By default, localhost is used as the RTMP URL, which means that the WebRTC video stream will be republished as RTMP to the same WCS server.

Then click the “Start” button to start broadcasting the video stream.


If the connection and broadcasting of the video is successful, the status “PUBLISHING” is displayed on the page



4. Click the “Play” button under the player form in order to play the republished RTMP video stream



As a result, the video stream is sent via WebRTC to the server and is republished to the same server as RTMP. We were able to verify this by playing the stream in the test RTMP player.
