There really is no “recommendation” other than test it out and see if it works 
for you. 

I’m currently using bleending edge nginx (1.11.3) with the module from Segey’s 
dev branch without any issues. But I’m only pushing out RTMP. I’m not serving 
up any HLS or DASH. That said, the dev branch is probably in better shape for 
those feautres anyway. This is using Gentoo systems, so there may be other 
factors that influence stability of Nginx between different distributions.

The one minor issue I’ve encountered is that if you have a push address 
defined in the settings, and during the boot process when nginx is started up, 
if it is unable to resolve those addresses it will fail to load. This happens 
for me 99% of the time and I just have to restart it once the OS has obtained 
an IP address and a DNS resolver address. There’s probably an "ip address 
obtained" target or something similar I could set the service to wait for, but 
I havn’t bothered to try messing with it since I already know what is causing 
the problem.
