Enable RTMP inputs - AWS Elemental Live

This is version 2.22 of the AWS Elemental Live documentation. This is the latest version. For prior versions, see the Previous versions section of AWS Elemental Live and AWS Elemental Statmux documentation.

Enable RTMP inputs

AWS Elemental Live is configured by default to support Real Time Messaging Protocol (RTMP) inputs. To confirm that this feature is enabled, do the following:

  1. On the AWS Elemental Live web interface, choose Settings and then select the Advanced tab.

  2. Locate the RTMP fields and verify that they have the following values:

    • Enable RTMP input: Checked.

    • RTMP input port: Specifies the desired port. The default port (1935) is already enabled on the node. If you specify a different port, you have to open it on the firewall. For firewall help, see Open ports on the firewall for AWS Elemental Live nodes.


The remaining fields on the Advanced tab aren't used in the initial configuration. They relate to fine-tuning the node load-balancing if the node is in a cluster. Therefore, we do not address these fields in this guide.
