How to setup a RTMP server for multi GoPro streaming on macOS

This article describes how to setup a RTMP streaming server on Apple macOS. The streaming server can then be used to stream from multiple sources, such as multiple GoPro Hero cameras.

Prerequisits

  • Apple macOS 10.13 or newer.
  • If you want to stream using GoPro cameras:

 

Setup

Download the RTMP server from here (~58 MB) and copy the “Local RTMP Server.app” to your Desktop or Applications. Then double click on the “Local RTMP Server”. The RTMP server icon is not visible in the macOS toolbar:

The RTMP server is now ready for receiving streams. The RTMP url looks like this (the IP address has to be replaced with your IP address):

rtmp://192.168.1.165/live/key

 

Replace “key” with some number. Each “key” represents a new video stream. For instance, the following two urls represent two live streams:

rtmp://192.168.1.165/live/1
rtmp://192.168.1.165/live/2

 

You can use the Live Streamer for GoPro Heros app if you want to live stream from GoPro cameras to the RTMP server.

The whole installation process is also shown in this video:
