This is what I would like to do.
- A Linux laptop has a webcam connected to it and captures video and audio in real time
- The laptop sends the live video and audio stream to another Linux server which has a better internet connection than the laptop, via RTSP or RTMP or something similar
- Any clients that wish to view the stream connect to the Linux server by means of some software such as VLC
The steps 1 and 3 are not a problem, I think I know how to do them. But:
How do I configure the Linux server in step 2 so that it accepts an RTSP stream input and publishes it in some address such as rtsp://my.ip.address/stream.mp4 for example, which can be opened in VLC by any computer? Is crtmpserver the right tool for this? And how do I configure it? I've read like ten different web pages that explain some example configurations for crtmpserver but haven't really found what I was looking for.
