One of the forms of live input that NGMS can process is an FLV container file transmitted over HTTP. Some servers use this method to stream live content.
The following command line will fetch remote content encapsulated in an FLV container.
ngms --verbose --capture=http://[web server host]:80/test.flv --filter="type=flv" --realtime --stream --live=8080 --tslive=8080 --rtmp=8081 --rtsp=8082 --httplive=8080
If fetching a remote FLV file that already exists in its entirety (is not live), then ensure to include the --realtime parameter so that NGMS will download the remote file in real-time according to the audio and video timestamps.
