Restream live content as HLS using ffmpeg in docker.

Usage

You need to have docker & docker-compose installed.

  1. Clone this repository:
git clone https://github.com/m1k1o/hls-restream
cd hls-restream
  1. Modify docker-compose.yml and add your own sources:
version: "3.4"
services:
  hls:
    build: "./"
    container_name: "hls"
    restart: "always"
    tmpfs:
      - "/var/www/html:mode=777,size=128M,uid=1000,gid=1000"
    ports:
      - "80:80"
    environment:
      PROFILE: passthrough
      SOURCES: |
        # SD Channels:
        ch1     rtsp://192.168.1.5:554/ch1
        ch2     rtsp://192.168.1.5:554/ch2
        # HD Channels:
        ch1_hd  http://192.168.1.6/stream/channelid/8967896?profile=pass
        ch2_hd  http://192.168.1.6/stream/channelid/4969639?profile=pass

Profiles can you find in profiles/ folder.

  • passthrough - default, no transcoding.

H264 adaptive bitrate transcoding:

  • abr_transcoding_sd - 360p and 480p
  • abr_transcoding_hd - 360p, 480p and 720p
  • abr_transcoding_hd_1080p - 360p, 480p, 720p and 1080p

H264 transcoding:

  • transcoding_hd - 720p only
  • transcoding_sd - 480p only
  1. Start docker compose (run this everytime you modify stream sources):
docker-compose up -d --build
  1. Watch streams:
http://localhost/ch1.m3u8
http://localhost/ch2.m3u8
http://localhost/ch1_hd.m3u8
http://localhost/ch2_hd.m3u8

In case of error, troubleshoot:

docker logs hls
docker exec -it hls sh -c 'cd /var/log/supervisor && /bin/bash'

NVIDIA GPU hardware acceleration

You will need to have nvidia-docker installed.

docker build -t hls_nvidia -f Dockerfile.nvidia .
docker run -d --gpus=all \
  --name hls_nvidia \
  --tmpfs /var/www/html:mode=777,size=128M,uid=1000,gid=1000 \
  -p 80:80 \
  -e 'PROFILE=transcoding_sd' \
  -e 'SOURCES=
        # SD Channels:
        ch1     rtsp://192.168.1.5:554/ch1
        ch2     rtsp://192.168.1.5:554/ch2
        # HD Channels:
        ch1_hd  http://192.168.1.6/stream/channelid/8967896?profile=pass
        ch2_hd  http://192.168.1.6/stream/channelid/4969639?profile=pass
  ' \
  hls_nvidia
