Streamwell uses OvenMediaEngine, an open-source streaming engine created by Airensoft. OME provides some key functionality like the low-latency streaming capability, re-streaming, recordings and live thumbnails.
A portion of each Streamwell sale goes to Airensoft via GitHub Sponsors as gratitude for their amazing work, and to keep OME alive for many years to come 💙
For self-hosted installations, there are some advanced configuration options available via the editor under Administration -> Server -> Engine Control -> Configure Engine. It is not recommended to dive in here unless you have a good understanding of the fundamentals and a backup of your original config.
OvenMediaEngine and OvenPlayer are licensed under the AGPLv3 and MIT licenses respectively. They are included as library components of the software and are not directly supported, except via professional services.
