Quick Start

This page provides the fastest way to check playback of WebRTC and LLHLS using OvenMediaEngine. For installation and detailed settings, please refer to other pages.

Run OvenMediaEngine

Run docker with the command below. OME_HOST_IP must be an IP address accessible by the player.

$ 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 \
