Hello all,

I am now trying to re-stream RTSP live stream to HLS, so that I can play it on my webpage. 

The path will be:
VLC(read local .mp4 file and stream it using RTSP) —> ffmpge(re-stream it to HLS and send it to ffserver) —> ffserver (boardcast the stream to Internet) —> my webpage (play the stream)

I can use the following  command to re-stream RTSP to HLS and save to a local file. How can I change the command and configure ffserver so that I can play it on my webpage(using URL)?

“ffmpeg -i rtsp://my-ip-address:8554/stream.ts  -fflags flush_packets -max_delay 1 -an -flags -global_header -hls_time 1 -hls_list_size 3 -hls_wrap 3 -vcodec copy -y /var/video.m3u8”
