In order to stream video online, you need a streaming service to receive and distribute the live stream. Most services today use the RTMP (Real Time Messaging Protocol) for live video, and popular social media services such as YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo, and other offer live streaming capabilities. However, for an internal business-to-business use case, these may not be suitable.
At Blueye we are building our streaming infrastructure ontop of Wowza Streaming Cloud. If you have some technical knowledge or an internal IT-department, you can create your own Wowza account if you wish to. See Live Streaming on Wowza Streaming Cloud for more information.
Blueye Streaming Account
In a trial period, you can also request a free streaming key from Blueye to test out how live streaming can help your business be more effective with remote underwater inspections.
Blueye Support will process your request promptly and reply with an RTMP address and key, as well as the address to the player used to watch your live stream.
RTMP streaming address
The RTMP address will look like this:
rtmp://origin.cdn.wowza.com:1935/live/0I0p2eWijY1lC4tni0v68l0Bki07310c where the second part is the key and the first part is the address. The streaming key should be kept secret and only used on the devices that will publish the video stream.
Stream playback address
You will also receive a playback address which will look like this:
https://www.blueye.no/streaming/player/0P0p2eWlJY1p2YXJuZTNtVHVyMUt5803. This address can be shared with whomever you wish to give access to view the live stream.
You will need the key in the next step. Please go ahead and read through the article while awaiting your key (or if you wish to use a different streaming service):
