About

SRS(Simple RTMP Server) is created in 2013.10. SRS supports many protocols includes RTMP, HLS, HTTP-FLV and HDS. SRS can run on both LINUX and OSX, and X86, X64, ARM and MIPS cpu. Vhost is used as service unit for live cluster, which delivery stream by origin and edge. The stream on origin can be transcoded, DVR to VOD file, ingest from external sources, or forwarded to other servers. HTTP API and callback is powerful mechenism for integraty. The wikis are writen by both English and Chinese.

Why SRS?

  1. Completely rewriten HLS: Following m3u8/ts spec, and HLS support h.264+aac/mp3.
  2. High efficient RTMP: Deliverying support 7k+ concurrency, vhost based, both origin and edge.
  3. Embeded HTTP server: For HLS, api and HTTP flv/ts/mp3/aac streaming.
  4. Variety inputs: RTMP, pull by ingest file or stream(HTTP/RTMP/RTSP), push by stream caster RTSP/MPEGTS-over-UDP.
  5. Popular internet delivery: RTMP/HDS for flash, HLS for mobile(IOS/IPad/MAC/Android), HTTP flv/ts/mp3/aac streaming for user prefered.
  6. Enhanced DVR: Segment/session/append plan, customer path and HTTP callback.
  7. Multiple features: Transcode, forward, ingest, http hooks, dvr, hls, rtsp, http streaming, http raw api, refer, log, bandwith test and srs-librtmp.
  8. Best maintainess: Simple arch over state-threads(coroutine), single thread, single process and for linux/osx platform, common server x86-64/i386/arm/mips cpus, rich comments, strictly follows RTMP/HLS/RTSP spec.
  9. Easy to use: Both English and Chinese wiki, typically config files in trunk/conf, traceable and session based log, linux service script and install script.
  10. MIT license: Open source with product management and evolution.

Latency benchmark

The latency between encoder and player with realtime config(CN, EN): |

Update SRS VP6 H.264 VP6+MP3 H.264+MP3
2014-12-03 1.0.10 0.4s 0.4s 0.9s 1.2s
2014-12-12 2.0.70 0.1s 0.4s 1.0s 0.9s
2014-12-16 2.0.72 0.1s 0.4s 0.8s 0.6s

We use FMLE as encoder for benchmark. The latency of server is 0.1s+, and the bottleneck is the encoder. For more information, read bug #257.

HLS overhead

About the HLS overhead of SRS, we compare the overhead to FLV by remux the HLS to FLV by ffmpeg.

Bitrate Duration FLV(KB) HLS(KB) Overhead
275kbps 600s 11144 12756 14.46%
260kbps 1860s 59344 68004 14.59%

5158kbps 1327s 835664 858092 2.68%

The HLS overhead is calc by: (HLS - FLV) / FLV * 100%.

The overhead is larger than this benchmark(48kbps audio is best overhead), for we fix the #512.

Architecture

SRS always use the most simple architecture to support complex transaction.

  • System arch: the system structure and arch.
  • Modularity arch: the main modularity of SRS.
  • Stream arch: the stream dispatch arch of SRS.

Remark:

  1. Encoder: Encoder must push RTMP stream to SRS server.
  2. MediaSource: Any media source, which can be ingest by ffmpeg.
  3. Ingester: SRS fork a ffmpeg(or application) to ingest something to rtmp to SRS. Read Ingest.
  4. Streamer: SRS listen to remux some protocol to rtmp to SRS. Read Streamer.
  5. EXEC: SRS exec external application when got event, read ng-exec.
