Simple, smart and stable media streaming

MistServer is a streaming media server that works well in any streaming environment. MistServer can scale from a low resource solution to a streaming media software powerhouse. Flexible and adaptive by nature, MistServer is able to stream video and audio online or on intranet to any device without requiring an app to be installed. Streaming live or Video on Demand, MistServer is the streaming media server of choice. You can even run MistServer as a streaming media service in the background. While MistServer works best as a Linux media server, MistServer is completely dependency-free and runs on Windows or Mac (OSX) systems as well. MistServer is available as a free and open source streaming media server but professional-grade features and support are also available with the paid MistServer Pro edition.
