What is OvenMediaEngine?

OvenMediaEngine (OME) is an Open Source, Ultra-Low Latency Streaming Server. OME receives video via RTMP from live encoders such as OBS, XSplit and transmits it on WebRTC. So, Ultra-Low Latency Streaming from OME can work seamlessly in your browser without plug-ins. Also, OME provides OvenPlayer, the HTML5 standard web player.

Our goal is to make it easier for you to build a stable broadcasting/streaming service with Ultra-Low Latency.
