push browser camera to aws rtmp server


i am using python and in frontend javascript.

I am using ffmpeg to push video to rtmp server.

ffmpeg -y -f mp4 -stream_loop -1 -re -i myvideo.mp4
-b:v 3M -vcodec libx264 -r 30.0 -s 1280x720
-c:a copy -b:a 96k
-f flv "rtmps://"

I test with OBS software, it is working well. It is working well but I am not getting how to push to rtmp server of my browser camera? i mean from javascript?

i am trying like this:

    <video id="vid" autoplay></video>

    <a href="#" onclick="streamVideo()">open and stream</a>

        function streamVideo () {
            video: {

            audio: {
                document.getElementById('vid').srcObject = stream; 


It is working but not getting any way to push from browser to rtmp server. I know browser doesnt support rtmp protocol, we need to send it from the backend but can I push it to the server so that it pushes to rtmp server?

Does anyone know the way?

You may have to include both Stream URL and the Stream key in the FLV endpoint:

Example FFmpeg command:

ffmpeg -re -1 -i $VIDEO_FILEPATH -r 30 -c:v libx264 -pix_fmt yuv420p -profile:v main -preset veryfast -x264opts "nal-hrd=cbr:no-scenecut" -minrate 3000 -maxrate 3000 -g 60 -c:a aac -b:a 160k -ac 2 -ar 44100 -f flv rtmps://**INGEST_ENDPOINT**:443/app/**STREAM_KEY**
