Please take a look at OBS-Studio. You can use it to stream from various sources, including your webcam. It is also multi-platform.

In settings > stream, set the following:
URL: rtmp://<ems_ip_address>:1935/live
Stream key: <stream_name or ingest_point>

The hasIngestPoints parameter in the EMS configuration file needs to be set properly.
See … definition for details.
If hasIngestPoints=false in config.lua, the Stream key is the same as the stream name.
If hasIngestPoints=true in config.lua, you need to add an ingestPoint first before you can push a stream to EMS.
See … est_point/ on how to create an ingest point.
