How to configure JWPlayer to view video from Raspberry Pi camera on the PC?

Following the instructions to install a Raspberry Pi + NoIR camera in a nest, I have almost finished (I get the video on the connected monitor); after having installed the web server "nginx" I have just to configure JWPlayer to view the video on a PC by entering the URL of the Raspberry. I don't understand the instruction on this point.

It says that after having created an account one has to enter "Your Website" as source and in the field "Media File" the address rtmp://[IP of the Raspberry Pi]/flvplayback/flv:myStream.flv.
I don't find a "source" field nor a field named "media file".
How do I have to proceed?

Another question: how to open JWPlayer in the browser (Firefox).

Kind regards

That sounds incredibly interesting. Unfortunately, we don’t formally support playback on Raspberry Pi. I am also not sure which instructions you are referring to.
Best of luck with your project.

It's an instruction in german.
My problem is not on the Pi level but concerning the transmission of the captured video signal to the PC and the viewing by JWPlayer!

Thank you for clarifying. Raspberry Pi is not a supported playback medium so I can’t provide documentation or support for any part of the process.
