Streaming RTMP with VLC and RTMPDump

This quick post is as much for your benefit as for the benefit of my memory…

To stream RTMP with VLC, you’ll need rtmpdump, which you can get here: http://rtmpdump.mplayerhq.hu/. I used rtmpdump-2.4-git-010913-windows.zip, though you may be able to use the latest version. I also had VLC 2.0.6 32-bit installed. Once installed, you can run the following from a cmd window:

rtmpdump.exe -r “rtmp://your.domain.com:1935/yoururl/here” -v -o – | vlc.exe –

This worked nicely for me. YMMV. Good luck!

If you found this helpful, maybe you’d like to send a thank you from my wishlist?
