Hey @lingmo,

Thank you for reaching out to the Zoom Developer Forum. Are you able to log any errors from your Node Media Server? I would also test to make sure that your Node Media Server works with other RTMP clients and to see if you can spot any potential issues.


Thanks MaxM,
No at media server I haven’t got any error or connection request


Hey @lingmo,

Thanks for the update. Looking at the RTMP URL that you provided it seems that this isn’t a valid URL that is accessible. I’m noticing that it doesn’t include a TLD (.com, .net, .etc) and isn’t accessible.

Please confirm that you are using the correct Stream URL.


Hi MaxM,
Sorry for my mistake, the TLD is “.com”, and it’s accessible from here.

Hey @lingmo,

Have you had a chance to test the Zoom Livestream functionality with another service to make sure everything is configured correctly? I would also make sure that you meet the prerequisites in our documentation and that you have enabled livestreaming on your account.


If that isn’t helpful, you can reach out to our Customer Support Team who will be able to assist you directly when it comes to issues live streaming from the Zoom App.
