VP6, VP8 and VP9 transmuxing in Nimble Streamer

Live transmuxing feature set of Nimble Streamer now covers support for VP6, VP8 and VP9 codecs. Let's see how you can use them in Nimble Streamer.

VP6 via RTMP


VP6 codec is supported only in RTMP protocol. Nimble Streamer has wide RTMP feature set, so you can create full-scale VP6 transmuxing scenarios which includes the following:

  • receiving VP6 content as published stream;
  • get RTMP pulled streams, including pull by request scenario;
  • transmuxing VP6 for RTMP playback;
  • performing RTMP re-publishing to allow delivery to other destinations like your edge servers or third-party CDN.


VP8 and VP9 via RTSP


VP8 and VP9 codec are supported only in RTSP protocol. Nimble Streamer also has RTSP feature set, and VP8/VP9 transmuxing scenarios cover the same set of features:

Another great security option is publish control for VP6/VP8/VP9 streaming which allows applying your business logic to the streams that are published by third-parties.
