SRS(Simple Realtime Server)

SRS/5.0 is a simple, high efficiency and realtime video server, supports RTMP/WebRTC/HLS/HTTP-FLV/SRT.

SRS/5.0,Bee 是一个简单高效的实时视频服务器,支持RTMP/WebRTC/HLS/HTTP-FLV/SRT。

SRS Overview

Note: The single node architecture for SRS, for detail please see here.

SRS is licenced under MIT or MulanPSL-2.0, and note that MulanPSL-2.0 is compatible with Apache-2.0, but some third-party libraries are distributed using their own licenses.


Build SRS from source:

git clone -b develop &&
cd srs/trunk && ./configure && make && ./objs/srs -c conf/srs.conf

Open http://localhost:8080/ to check it, then publish by FFmpeg or OBS as:

ffmpeg -re -i ./doc/source.flv -c copy -f flv -y rtmp://localhost/live/livestream

Play the following streams by players:

Note that if convert RTMP to WebRTC, please use rtmp2rtc.conf:

Note: Besides of FFmpeg or OBS, it's also able to publish by H5 if WebRTC(CN, EN) is enabled, please remember to set the CANDIDATE(CN or EN) for WebRTC.

Highly recommend that directly run SRS by docker(CN / EN), Cloud Virtual Machine(CN / EN), or K8s(CN / EN), however it's also easy to build SRS from source code, for detail please see Getting Started(CN / EN).

Note: If need HTTPS, by which WebRTC and modern browsers require, please read HTTPS API(CN / EN) and HTTPS Callback(CN / EN) and HTTPS Live Streaming(CN / EN), however HTTPS proxy also works perfect with SRS such as Nginx.

From here, please read wikis:

  • Getting Started, please read Wiki first.
