Using FFmpeg, mimoLive can also now ingest RTMP streams.

Setting up an RTMP server

Add an FFmpeg source your sources column. For RTMP, FFmpeg needs to run in listening mode and the Keep Alive checkbox needs to be marked so that mimoLive starts FFmpeg right away and keeps it running even if no data is received and the source isn’t used in a live layer or a multiview.

The parameters for starting and running an RTMP server are:

-listen 1 -i rtmp://

where you need to replace the “” with the primary IP number of your Mac.

Sending video and audio to mimoLive using RTMP

On the sending side, you need to set up the camera, drone, streaming app or whatever you want to use as a source to match the setup of your FFmpeg source:


again replacing the “” with the IP number of your mimoLive Mac.

You should now receive the RTMP stream in mimoLive.
