I would like to send video signal from vMix to FB, but also by SRT to 25 receivers (VLC) in classrooms in our school. Is this possible? , any ideas ? Will my computer manage it? I will send one SRT signal or 25 ?

Hi,

Try to configure your SRT output with "Listener" type.
Then use OBS/VLC to receive SRT stream in "Caller" mode.

Tried on two PC's, looks like it work. I think, main restriction will be your LAN speed.

Try srt-live-server

https://github.com/Edward-Wu/srt-live-server

you can run it in a docker container. It works as a srt listener for incoming streams and a listener for outgoing streams. Your client should support the streamid parameter in srt protocol. I think for vlc clients there is a patch.

Check srt-live-transmit which will get your srt feed from vMix at the school and transmux it to UDP (either unicast or multicast)

For example: srt://192.168.1.100:12345

PC vMix, Network Adress z.b.(192.168.1.100)

In vMix PC: Settings - Outputs / NDI / SRT - SRT Type: Listener-Port: Number - OK
For example port: 12345
Quality: For example = 4mbps + Audio = ca. 5mbps
SRT to 25 receivers: 25 x 5mbps = ca. 125mbps
But you can also choose a lower quality.
Send one SRT signal!

In VLC - Media - Open Network Stream - Network - network URL:
For example:srt://192.168.1.100:12345
Klick Play

For Android SRT Player

Elvis55, I don't understand, please explain. Is it possible to send just one signal to multiple receivers?

Yes but it's not recommended, especially for 25 clients

As said before, the SRT Alliance recommends to use SRT-live-transmit for such scenarios because it allows to transmux a single SRT feed on the receiving side into UDP which is the best protocol for point to multipoint or multicast.

If you think the workflow :

Elvis suggestion is :
- have 25 clients (from the same network) request SRT pull from a single encoder which has a major impact bandwidth on both sides (where 24 streams copies are basically useless)

My suggestion is :
- have 1 single remote client (srt-live-transmit) request pull from the encoder (a single feed gets transported over the internet). Then this incoming feed is transmuxed in real time to a more appropriate protocol for distribution to 25 clients on the remote network. This saves up a lot of bandwidth and encoding power on both sides and if you go for multicast you can serve up to 250 clients for the cost of 1.

Nope, I'm talking about srt-live-transmit which can be used with any SRT encoder, including vMix

Hi, I use Haivision SRT Gateway on AWS for single input SRT and Multiple output SRT. I haven't done 25 connections, but I have done 7 without any challenge. I believe they can do a max of 20 outputs, but that may increase if you use a larger instance.

I am not sure if this is what you are looking for, but it works for me. Of course it is at a cost, but I consider the cost reasonable. I start the instance for the event and shut it down after. Let me know if you have any questions.

I tested it with 4 Windows 8 inch tablets, version VLC and 1 Android 8 inch tablet, version Larix Player. Total of 5 recipients.
In vMix Listener setting - Resolution HD720, Quality H264 2.5mbps.
Display in Task Manager - Ethernet sent, between 13 and 16mbps.

You send 1 SRT stream out...in all the Vlc on the same network use srt://0.0.0.0:[you caller port]
Cannot at this time send SRT to facebook
