Broadcast stream directly in my rtmp server

Hi , I need to directly broadcast in my RTMP server , I wanted to change the YouTube RTMP URL without building the jitsi from scratch , its possible in previous version of jitsi with the help of additional configuration from ffmpeg , but now it doesn’t seems to be working , can anyone help with this

Here is the previous working configuration

Did you try to set your custom RTMP link as stream key?

I dont want things like that , and ofcos its working by that way , I am looking to change rtmp url from backend , for example if I enter “meetin72” as a stream key , it should broadcast directly to rtmp://

  • Create a fake ffmpeg in /usr/local/bin directory
  • Set the execute permission using chmod
  • Edit the code according to your previous script.
    See also fake ffmpeg sample

Did this , but not working , can you write and send exact ffmpeg script with my above mentioned exact use case scenarios

Are you sure your fake ffmpeg is triggered?
You may add a log command into the script and check the log after starting the stream.

New here , how can I do that?

You may use the sample fake ffmpeg which I sent in my previous post and check the log file which is /tmp/ffmpeg.log

Log is not there , does this mean , script doesn’t trigger???

If you use the sample ffmpeg code and if there is no log, this means that it is not triggered.

then , how can i fix it??

Hey emrah , can you just please send a example script , lets say my rtmp url is “rtmp:///”

First, you need to solve the untriggred script issue.

You may check $PATH for jibri user


I , genuinely need help , now this script is working in my other old server with older jitsi installed, but dont know why not working with the same steps in fresh installation of jitsi



while test $# -gt 0
    if [ "${1:0:32}" == "rtmp://" ]; then
        # T  will contain the rtmp key from jitsi meet page. Make sure you use the correct IP Address OF the rtmp server you setup earlier
        COMMAND="$COMMAND rtmp://${T:32}"             



echo "Esperando finalización del proceso: ${PROCESO_FFMPEG}."

First you must be sure if it is triggered or not… Change the script like the following:


echo "Hello from fake ffmpeg"

Then switch to jibri account and try to run ffmpeg. What do you see?

su -l jibri

this is what I see

This means that the fake ffmpeg isn’t triggered.

  • where do you put this script?
  • Does it run when using the full path? like /usr/local/bin/ffmpeg
  • Is the path in Jibri’s $PATH?
su -l jibri
echo $PATH
  1. its in /opt/util/ffmpeg
    2.still no
