What is OvenMediaEngine?

OvenMediaEngine (OME) is a Sub-Second Latency Streaming Server that can stream Large-scale and High-definition live streams over Low Latency HLS (LLHLS) and WebRTC to hundreds of thousands of viewers.

OME can ingest live streams over WebRTC, SRT, RTMP, RTSP, and MPEG2-TS protocols, encode them to ABR with the embedded live transcoder, and stream them to viewers over LLHLS and WebRTC.

With OvenMediaEngine, you can build your powerful and sub-second latency media service very easily.

Demo https://space.ovenplayer.com/

OvenSpace is a sub-second latency streaming demo service using OvenMediaEngine, OvenPlayer and OvenLiveKit. You can experience OvenMediaEngine in the OvenSpace Demo and see examples of applying in OvenSpace Repository.

Supported Platforms

We have tested OvenMediaEngine on the platforms listed below. Although we have tested OvenMediaEngine on the platforms listed below, it may work with other Linux packages as well:

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

Quick Start


docker run --name ome -d -e OME_HOST_IP=Your.HOST.IP.Address \
-p 1935:1935 -p 9999:9999/udp -p 9000:9000 -p 3333:3333 -p 3478:3478 -p 10000-10009:10000-10009/udp \

You can also store the configuration files on your host:

docker run --name ome -d -e OME_HOST_IP=Your.HOST.IP.Address \
-p 1935:1935 -p 9999:9999/udp -p 9000:9000 -p 3333:3333 -p 3478:3478 -p 10000-10009:10000-10009/udp \
-v ome-origin-conf:/opt/ovenmediaengine/bin/origin_conf \
-v ome-edge-conf:/opt/ovenmediaengine/bin/edge_conf \

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
