Detailed Description

Erlyvideo is a modern video streaming server, written in Erlang. You can use Erlyvideo to stream to Flash, iPad, Android, SetTopBox.

Unique features like capturing endless streams, streaming directly from Amazon S3-like storages and connecting to SDI make this server a best choice for building video infrastructure.

Benefit to Fedora

I've heard about requests for adding this to Fedora/EL repositories (for example - one and two). So this would be a reason to switch to/stay with Fedora for some users.


A multimedia-related application will not be useful w/o underlying multimedia-codecs. So it will be necessary to ensure that it will work with open/patent-unencumbered ones. This could be quite complex task.

How To Test

* edit /etc/flussonic/flussonic.conf for your needs
* read manual in config how to work with it
* open http://localhost:8080/index.html

User Experience

Users will be able to install Erlyvideo with only "sudo yum install erlyvideo" instead of reading large manuals, fetching sources from GitHub, compiling them, installing and fixing inevitable installation errors.




  • Switch to erlang-emmap
  • Strip off ffmpeg-related stuff
  • Add WebM - fixed upstream in #41eabbe
  • Add iLBC / Opus as a payload if time permits.
  • Provide systemd unit-file.

Contingency Plan

None necessary. Entirely new application.


Release Notes

Fedora 19 includes the latest version of Erlyvideo, a complete video streaming solution, written in Erlang.
