Listening rtmp streams on linux

You need to install rtmpdump.

The rtmp stream has three parts:

  • rtmp url
  • target app on server
  • playpath

eg.

streamer: ‘rtmp://cp126783.live.edgefcs.net/live’, file: ‘Alfaradiofwno@86944?.mp3′

  • rtmp url : rtmp://cp126783.live.edgefcs.net
  • target app on server : live
  • playpath : ‘Alfaradiofwno@86944?.mp3′

then pipe the stream through vlc:


rtmpdump -V --live -r rtmp://cp126783.live.edgefcs.net -a live -y 'Alfaradiofwno@86944?.mp3' | cvlc -
