pdebellis asked 6 years ago
I’m trying to get familiar with evostream by running everything locally on my OS X machine (I’m new to OS X by the way). I was wondering if there is any documentation for an OS X install? I can only find Linux and Windows in the docs. I do have EMS running currently but I would feel more confident that everything installed properly if I could follow some official documentation.

Hi pdebellis,

Installation of EMS on OSX is just a simple extraction of the EMS package (.tar.gz) to a folder of your choice.

Here is the current package for OSX as of 6-Jan-2017:
http://tarballs.evostream.com/release/4491/evostreamms-1.7.1.4491-x86_64-MacOSX_10.11.tar.gz

Please check the most recent version from here:
https://evostream.com/software-downloads/

Port 1935 is used for RTMP streams by default.

You can play MP4 files in the media directory using one of these URIs:
rtmp://_IP_OF_EMS_/vod/_FILENAME_
rtmp://_IP_OF_EMS_/live/_FILENAME_
Specifying port 1935 is optional.
For details, please check our online guide:
http://docs.evostream.com/ems_how_to_guide/vod#rtmp
http://docs.evostream.com/ems_how_to_guide/playlive#rtmp

To play streams thru a browser, you can use DASH or HLS.
Check the following documentation for details:
http://docs.evostream.com/ems_how_to_guide/dash
http://docs.evostream.com/ems_how_to_guide/hls

Cheers,
Don
