Hello to everyone.

yesterday,after 3 days of work,I've been able to make work the jacob tutorial about how to stream audio/video in Windows with HLS and NGINX.  Now I've got another idea. Right now I can stream what I want,but one important thing is missing : the people. I would like to share on the main video of OBS the RTMP streamings of my friends. Most of them haven't any PC,but they have an android phone. I'm reading that for android there are two good tools,called larix broadcaster and newtek ndi which creates a mini RTMP server on the phone. Something like this : 
. So,if I have 3 friends with larix installed on the phone,I would add these streams on my obs main screen to make a multi conferencing streaming situation. Can I do that ?

I don't have any experience broadcasting RTMP streams from Android. However, if you set up another RTMP server for them, once they're streaming to it, you can just add a VLC source in OBS to play back the .m3u8 URL.

I would personally recommend using a video chatting service (like Jitsi or Google Hangouts) and screen-capturing that with OBS instead, though.

Yesterday finally,after 3 days of researching,I've been able to find the way to connect the android phones of my friends (connected to internet with a mobile connection) to my OBS server and to restream everything on my web site. It wasn't easy,but I did it.

yes,but this this method is not good. it is tricky and sometimes OBS freezes and I should restart it. It should be tested more.
