Simple, smart and stable media streaming

MistServer is a full-featured, next-generation streaming media toolkit for OTT (internet streaming). It takes care of all the annoying little problems you come across in media streaming projects, allowing you to focus on what makes your product or service unique. The MistServer software and our accompanying services allow anyone to quickly gain and keep a competitive edge.

MistServer is a small-footprint, high-performance streaming media server toolkit, capable of on the fly transmuxing of VoD and live streams to all common consumer-grade delivery formats and protocols.

MistServer is written entirely in C++ and comes with an easy to use and integrate JSON API. We pride ourselves on MistServer being able to run in any environment and on any device, be it a full-fledged media server, embedded device or in the cloud. MistServer is modular, extensible and provides excellent automation features as well as analytics, allowing full control over the entire workflow. MistServer is the perfect core for any streaming media project.

MistServer helps you reduce your costs for media streaming by allowing you to leverage our experience and well-tested software toolkit to assist your efforts. You will save time because your team no longer has to solve all the problems associated with media streaming. This includes device compatibility, protocol implementations, and hooking the media delivery into your other systems for monitoring and access control.

Furthermore, our engineering team is available to assist you with all media-related matters, including informing you of other options than just the ones we provide. Because all our services come at a flat monthly fee, you can be sure of receiving honest advice for all situations.
