SRS(Simple Realtime Server)

SRS/6.0 (Hang) is a simple, high-efficiency, and real-time video server, supporting RTMP/WebRTC/HLS/HTTP-FLV/SRT/MPEG-DASH/GB28181, Linux/Windows/macOS, X86_64/ARMv7/AARCH64/M1/RISCV/LOONGARCH/MIPS, and essential features.

SRS Overview

Note: For more details on the single-node architecture for SRS, please visit the following link.

SRS is licenced under MIT, and some third-party libraries are distributed under their licenses.


Please check the Getting Started guide in English or Chinese. We highly recommend using SRS with docker:

docker run --rm -it -p 1935:1935 -p 1985:1985 -p 8080:8080 \
    -p 8000:8000/udp -p 10080:10080/udp ossrs/srs:5

Tips: If you're in China, use this image for faster speed.

Open http://localhost:8080/ to verify, and then stream using the following FFmpeg command:

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

Alternatively, stream by OBS using the following configuration:

  • Service: Custom
  • Server: rtmp://localhost/live
  • Stream Key: livestream

Play the following streams using media players:

If you'd like to use WebRTC, convert RTMP to WebRTC, or convert WebRTC to RTMP, please check out the wiki documentation in either English or Chinese.

To learn more about RTMP, HLS, HTTP-FLV, SRT, MPEG-DASH, WebRTC protocols, clustering, HTTP API, DVR, and transcoding, please check the documents in English or Chinese.
