How to Set Up a Multi-Streaming Server with Unraid

For a single person? 

 

Furthermore: Nginx rtmp would be a ''re-stream'' service, right? Because I will just be using the server to send the same stream to multiple platforms. So I will need less than usual. 

 

 The reason I am asking though, is beacause I want to have multiple streamers (people) streaming to multiple platforms at once. Not only me multistreaming.

 

That means that there will be multiple and different channels at the same time = multiple nginx applications under the same server.  This is why I am asking: Do I need specific specs for my VPS/dedicated server or it does not really matter. (Except bandwidth, I suppose). 

 

I am just trying to find out how it works 😛

Yes. You're transcoding each stream.

 

Yes, the multi streaming server is just like a distributor.

You asked about streaming requirements, so I thought you meant the transcode power.

If you're just using the multi streaming, then I think a couple of cores is enough. Don't hold me up on that though, I haven't tried it myself.

 

I guess the easiest way is to test it yourself to find out what is needed.

If I already have a container from linuxserver/swag (with nginx in it), can I just copy the config to swag, instead of creating another container?

I can't give you a warm fuzzy answer that is directly a yes.  However, in theory it should work.  Just copy and backup your config files and give it a try?  Then let us know?

Thanks for your response. I am just curious about it and thought it would be interesting. Not intended to do it in any short time 😛
