"Sub-Second Latency Streaming Server" OvenMediaEngine

What is OvenMediaEngine?

In short, OvenMediaEngine (OME) is Open-Source Streaming Server with Sub-Second Latency.

OME receives a video/audio source from encoders and cameras such as OvenStreamEncoder, OBS, XSplit, and more to WebRTC, RTMP, SRT, MPEG-2 TS Beta, or RTSP Beta. Then, OME transmits it using WebRTC, Low Latency MPEG-DASH (LLDASH), MPEG-DASH, and HLS.

Like the picture below:

We also provide OvenPlayer, Open-Source HTML5 Player that is very synergistic with OME.

What is the goal of this project?

AirenSoft aims to make it easier for you to build a stable broadcasting/streaming service with Sub-Second Latency. Therefore, we will continue developing and providing the most optimized tools for smooth Sub-Second Latency Streaming.

Supported Platforms

We have tested OME on the platforms listed below. However, we think it can work with other Linux packages as well:

  • Docker
  • Ubuntu 18+
  • CentOS 7+
  • Fedora 28+

Getting Started


docker run -d \
-p 1935:1935 \
-p 3333:3333 \
-p 3478:3478 \
-p 8080:8080 \
-p 9000:9000 \
-p 9999:9999/udp \
-p 4000-4005:4000-4005/udp \
-p 10006-10010:10006-10010/udp \
--name ovenmediaengine \

You can also store the configuration files on your host:

docker run -d \
-p 1935:1935 \
-p 3333:3333 \
-p 3478:3478 \
-p 8080:8080 \
-p 9000:9000 \
-p 9999:9999/udp \
-p 4000-4005:4000-4005/udp \
-p 10006-10010:10006-10010/udp \
-v ome-origin-conf:/opt/ovenmediaengine/bin/origin_conf \
-v ome-edge-conf:/opt/ovenmediaengine/bin/edge_conf \
--name ovenmediaengine \

The configuration files are now accessible under /var/lib/docker/volumes/<volume_name>/_data.

Following the above example, you will find them under /var/lib/docker/volumes/ome-origin-conf/_data and /var/lib/docker/volumes/ome-edge-conf/_data.

If you want to put them in a different location, the easiest way is to create a link:

ln -s /var/lib/docker/volumes/ome-origin-conf/_data/ /my/new/path/to/ome-origin-conf \
&& ln -s /var/lib/docker/volumes/ome-edge-conf/_data/ /my/new/path/to/ome-edge-conf

Other Methods

Please read the Getting Started.
