OvenMediaEngine (OME) is an open-source and streaming server with sub-second latency. OME receives video via RTMP, MPEG-TS, and RSTP Pull from live encoders such as OBS, FFMPEG, and more. Then OME transmits video using WebRTC, Low-Latency HTTP (DASH), MPEG-DASH, and HLS. This enables sub-second latency streaming from OME which plays back seamlessly in your browser without requiring any plug-ins. Also, we provide OvenPlayer, the most optimized HTML5 player for OME, as an open-source.
Our goal is to make it easier for you to build a stable broadcasting/streaming service with sub-second latency.
