How do I change YOUTUBE Live Stream to another RTMP server url?

Maybe take a closer look at the jibri service file.

In other packages the update overwrite them, so if a change there is needed then the change has to be re-applied after upgrade.


I’ve uninstalled, reinstalled and updated and I haven’t need to reapply service changes. Service configuration was preserved.

Yeah, but you are using the same version package right?

I’ve seen updates rewrite service files, maybe just the ones that have changes on service files.

I would backup anyway.


No, I was testing with stable, unstable and recompiled (making deb package from sources) packages.

Will wait that interesting info too!

I’ve written up the guide to stream to multiple rtmp destinations

If i use this script on my jibri, is this jibri still able to record ?

Quoting some advice,


Please remember that changes might (or might not) break your system, and most of the instructions at this forum are considered to be done at your own risk.

Lastly, make backups, snapshots or apply on test instances, that said.

Test and enjoy!


I’ve updated the script to include recording simultaneously.

any idea how can it be removed.

what are you chrome & chrome driver versions?

also i dont use jibri for recording… since i anyway stream to rtmp, i can record it there

Hi, I am trying to stream from jigasi to icecast with the above script. It runs for about a minute and then quits. Should this be possible with this script or something similiar?
Below is my script and the log.



while test $# -gt 0
T="1" if [ "{T:0:32}" == “rtmp://” ]; then
COMMAND="COMMAND -acodec libmp3lame -ac 1 -content_type audio/mpeg -f mp3 icecast://{T:32}"

echo “Llamando a ffmpeg sustituyendo rtmp si hay: «$COMANDO».”


echo “Esperando finalización del proceso: ${PROCESS_FFMPEG}.”

The most likely reason is either wrong type (e.g. a video option with no video streams) or that it is a private option of some encoder which was not actually used for any stream.

I tested with the rtmp nginx server & this works for me. you can modify this to suite your use case

ffmpeg -re -i rtmp:// -vn \
       -codec:a libmp3lame -b:a 64k -f mp3 \
       -content_type audio/mpeg \

I am not much for writing code so how would I implement this in my code for streaming from jigasi to icecast?

Has anyone got this to work in Docker?

FROM jitsi/jibri:latest

#Set up custom RTMP endpoint
RUN mkdir -p /opt/util
COPY ffmpeg /opt/util/ffmpeg
RUN chmod +x /opt/util/ffmpeg

#Set Java path in service file
COPY jibri.service /etc/systemd/system/jibri.service

That is the setup I am trying, but when I check the Jibri logs, it is still sending to YouTube. I can get this to work perfectly to my own RTMP endpoint without Docker though.


What I did was edit the /etc/hosts and hardcoded the IP of to be my RTMP endpoint and handled the path /live2 there. Not sure if anyone has a better solution?

Gracias, thank you, obrigado, merci, todah rabah, and so on. You kind of saved the world, as long as we are concerned.

I am able to live stream on Facebook or youtube using , these guys have done some wonderful customisation
