Hey DEV! 👋

I just published a GitHub project that allows you to self-host a streaming server so you can stream to multiple platforms at the same time.

At the moment, Twitch, YouTube, and Periscope are the only supported platforms. Adding a new one is easy, so I encourage you to create a PR if you need support for other platforms 😄

Here's the repo: https://github.com/HorusGoul/rtmp-social-multicast

Hello, how are you? I am a beginner and I am very happy with your example. when implementing here for study this error is returning me. What can it be?
"Starting rtmp-social-multicast_rtmp_1 ... done
Starting rtmp-social-multicast_rtmp-auth_1 ... done
Attaching to rtmp-social-multicast_rtmp-auth_1, rtmp-social-multicast_rtmp_1

rtmp-auth_1 | RTMP Auth Server listening on 19350
rtmp-social-multicast_rtmp_1 exited with code 1"

Yeah, definitely, but before you switch operating systems, have you tried to run it with WSL 2? Maybe you can get the project to work in Windows with that -> docs.docker.com/docker-for-windows...

You'll need to add support for it yourself because the project doesn't support Facebook at the moment. This shouldn't bee too difficult, it's a matter of replicating what we're doing with YouTube or Twitch but link it to Facebook.

Feel free to send a PR if you make it!
