Prerequisites

Make sure you setup and activate your AVAudioSession.

import AVFoundation
let session = AVAudioSession.sharedInstance()
do {
    // https://stackoverflow.com/questions/51010390/avaudiosession-setcategory-swift-4-2-ios-12-play-sound-on-silent
    if #available(iOS 10.0, *) {
        try session.setCategory(.playAndRecord, mode: .default, options: [.defaultToSpeaker, .allowBluetooth])
    } else {
        session.perform(NSSelectorFromString("setCategory:withOptions:error:"), with: AVAudioSession.Category.playAndRecord, with: [
            AVAudioSession.CategoryOptions.allowBluetooth,
            AVAudioSession.CategoryOptions.defaultToSpeaker]
        )
        try session.setMode(.default)
    }
    try session.setActive(true)
} catch {
    print(error)
}

RTMP Usage

Real Time Messaging Protocol (RTMP).

let rtmpConnection = RTMPConnection()
let rtmpStream = RTMPStream(connection: rtmpConnection)
rtmpStream.attachAudio(AVCaptureDevice.default(for: AVMediaType.audio)) { error in
    // print(error)
}
rtmpStream.attachCamera(DeviceUtil.device(withPosition: .back)) { error in
    // print(error)
}

let hkView = HKView(frame: view.bounds)
hkView.videoGravity = AVLayerVideoGravity.resizeAspectFill
hkView.attachStream(rtmpStream)

// add ViewController#view
view.addSubview(hkView)

rtmpConnection.connect("rtmp://localhost/appName/instanceName")
rtmpStream.publish("streamName")
// if you want to record a stream.
// rtmpStream.publish("streamName", type: .localRecord)

RTML URL Format

  • rtmp://server-ip-address[:port]/application/[appInstance]/[prefix:[path1[/path2/]]]streamName
    • [] mark is an Optional. rtmpConneciton.connect("rtmp://server-ip-address[:port]/application/[appInstance]") rtmpStream.publish("[prefix:[path1[/path2/]]]streamName")
  • rtmp://localhost/live/streamName rtmpConneciton.connect("rtmp://localhost/live") rtmpStream.publish("streamName")

Settings

var rtmpStream = RTMPStream(connection: rtmpConnection)

rtmpStream.captureSettings = [
    .fps: 30, // FPS
    .sessionPreset: AVCaptureSession.Preset.medium, // input video width/height
    // .isVideoMirrored: false,
    // .continuousAutofocus: false, // use camera autofocus mode
    // .continuousExposure: false, //  use camera exposure mode
    // .preferredVideoStabilizationMode: AVCaptureVideoStabilizationMode.auto
]
rtmpStream.audioSettings = [
    .muted: false, // mute audio
    .bitrate: 32 * 1000,
]
rtmpStream.videoSettings = [
    .width: 640, // video output width
    .height: 360, // video output height
    .bitrate: 160 * 1000, // video output bitrate
    .profileLevel: kVTProfileLevel_H264_Baseline_3_1, // H264 Profile require "import VideoToolbox"
    .maxKeyFrameIntervalDuration: 2, // key frame / sec
]
// "0" means the same of input
rtmpStream.recorderSettings = [
    AVMediaType.audio: [
        AVFormatIDKey: Int(kAudioFormatMPEG4AAC),
        AVSampleRateKey: 0,
        AVNumberOfChannelsKey: 0,
        // AVEncoderBitRateKey: 128000,
    ],
    AVMediaType.video: [
        AVVideoCodecKey: AVVideoCodecH264,
        AVVideoHeightKey: 0,
        AVVideoWidthKey: 0,
        /*
        AVVideoCompressionPropertiesKey: [
            AVVideoMaxKeyFrameIntervalDurationKey: 2,
            AVVideoProfileLevelKey: AVVideoProfileLevelH264Baseline30,
            AVVideoAverageBitRateKey: 512000
        ]
        */
    ],
]

// 2nd arguemnt set false
rtmpStream.attachAudio(AVCaptureDevice.default(for: AVMediaType.audio), automaticallyConfiguresApplicationAudioSession: false)

Authentication

var rtmpConnection = RTMPConnection()
rtmpConnection.connect("rtmp://username:password@localhost/appName/instanceName")

Screen Capture

// iOS
rtmpStream.attachScreen(ScreenCaptureSession(shared: UIApplication.shared))
// macOS
rtmpStream.attachScreen(AVCaptureScreenInput(displayID: CGMainDisplayID()))

HTTP Usage

HTTP Live Streaming (HLS). Your iPhone/Mac become a IP Camera. Basic snipet. You can see http://ip.address:8080/hello/playlist.m3u8

var httpStream = HTTPStream()
httpStream.attachCamera(DeviceUtil.device(withPosition: .back))
httpStream.attachAudio(AVCaptureDevice.defaultDevice(withMediaType: AVMediaTypeAudio))
httpStream.publish("hello")

var hkView = HKView(frame: view.bounds)
hkView.attachStream(httpStream)

var httpService = HLSService(domain: "", type: "_http._tcp", name: "HaishinKit", port: 8080)
httpService.startRunning()
httpService.addHTTPStream(httpStream)

// add ViewController#view
view.addSubview(hkView)

FAQ

Do you support me via Email?

Yes. Consulting fee is $50/1 incident. I don't recommend. Please consider to use Issues.
