Do you support RTML command line?

I have a DJI Phantom 4 and the only option is an RTMP URL.

I have seen some samples, such as rtmp://url:port:password, but there is no documentation.

Does this sound like WOWZA would support this?

If I opened a free trial, is this something that could be tested?

Thank you!

Wowza Streaming Engine supports RTMP encoders. For instructions on how to connect your encoder to Wowza Streaming Engine please take a look at the article below.

Your documentation should provide you with information on how to form the RTMP login URL for the command line. An example of a minimal command line based RTMP login for FFmpeg would be as follows:


For FFmpeg to match as both a valid encoder (listed in Flash Version String portion of your live application) it would look more like this:

"rtmp://[wowza-address]:1935/live/myStream flashver=FMLE/3.0\20(compatible;\20FMSc/1.0) live=true pubUser=live pubPasswd=live"

I hope that gets you on your way.

The problem is that DJI has no documentation for this that I can find, only the screen shot above.

I must be getting there, I have the AWS EC2 server up, I can get around the Streaming Engine in the EC2 instance, I still do not understand several components of the url:


True or False - The userame:password above is set up in SEVERS > SOURCE AUTHENTICATION page.

What goes into the [wowza-address]? Is it the Public DNS (IPv4) on the EC2 Management console? If not, where do I get this?

I see that :1935 is the port, and /live is the default application set up, but what is /myStream, I do not see that anywhere.

Then, how does a customer view the stream once it is streaming?

What URL do I give them?

Thank you.

Hi Rick,

We have a live streaming service from DJI drones to our site: You broadcast using our own android app. It’s available for beta users. I can hook you up if you’re interested.

There’s a lot of steps involved in what you want to do. DJI has made it fairly easy, compared to where they were when we started nearly two years ago, when it was impossible. Wowza still has lots of nuances for what you want, and it sounds like you don’t have a player or site set up to watch?
