Media Server is an open-source software that allows you to transcode, broadcast, and serve live video and audio streams. Currently, Media Server supports RTMP as input format and HLS as output format. Media PeerPool is integrated by default, meaning that you can also benefit from its peer-to-peer capabilities out of the box.

Deploy your streaming platform in seconds

Media Server allows anybody with a VPS or dedicated server to start a streaming platform. But what if you wanted to scale and serve video to millions of users? Your VPS wouldn't be enough to deliver the thousands gigabytes of data per second required to do so. That's where Media Network becomes really handy.

Setting up a Media Server instance and adding it to Media Network through a front-end like Media App will allow Media Edges to pull the content from your server and make it available to your end users. By using Media Network as your CDN you'll be able not only to hold millions of viewers without stressing your infrastructure, but also without exposing your original server IP address.
