Streaming Jitsi through Peertube Live

One of the cool things Taylor Jadin discovered recently is is easy it is to stream a Jitsi web video call through PeerTube. After creating a live stream in PeerTube, you would crab the stream URL and the stream key from the Live Settings tab:

After that, head over to your Jitsi meet video call and look for the settings that are accessed by the ellipsis at the bottom of the screen:

Once you select “Start live stream” you will see a dialog box that you will paste in the stream url and stream key, that should be separate by a slash “/” -so something like the following: rtmp://your.tv:1935/live/your-private-stream-key

After that you will hear a voice telling you the stream is live and you should be able to see the call streaming through PeerTube within a few seconds.

    Let’s go to the video tape! Those words ring so familiar. I still lived in the Central VA area at the time, when Warner Wolf came back to Channel 9 WUSA in Washington DC to be their Sports caster. Little did I know he got his start in D.C. prior to heading up to WABC in NYC. Boy those were the days.
