Hi all,

I would like to announce the very first version of the streamnik project.

The streamnik server and the streamnik-php frontend can be found at:


Some Features: 

- The streamnik server is build up in clean C++ and uses very few dependencies 
(actually only commonC++ and mysql). 

- It is optimized to run on very limited servers (e.g. virtual servers). I 
experimenced file access delays of more than 5 seconds (caused by NFS 
access ??), so I implemented a lot of caching mechanisms. 

- It can handle multiple different streams and provides video streaming for a 
lot of clients. The definition of this streams and the programm is defined in 
an sql-database and can be changed on runtime.

- You can add previews at the start of a stream (e.g. for advertisements).

Feel free to try out - and have fun ;-)


PS: It's not easy to set up the server, please be prepared for that - and read 
the README file. If you have any further questions, just drop me a mail.
