  • Hi.
    I juste configured mine to serve VDR-Live but on the root path of a subdomain.
    You have to know that I use certbot to obtain ssl certificates, you will see related stuff about this in my nginx config.

    I first created a symlink from /usr/share/vdr/plugins/live to /var/www/vdrlive

    1. ln -s /usr/share/vdr/plugins/live /var/www/vdrlive

    Then I added this nginx site in a new created file: /etc/nginx/sites-available/vdrlive :

    You must replace


    by your own sub domain, create a symlink in sites-enabled and reload nginx.

    This is not a prefect answer but I hope this can help you !
