Owncast is a free and open source live video and web chat server for use with existing popular broadcasting software.
Self hosted and Independent
Have complete control and ownership over your stream, allowing you to create the content and community you want.
The frictionless built-in chat allows your viewers to be a part of the action. Include custom emotes and build chat bots to encourage engagement from your viewers.
Works with your software
Point your existing broadcasting software at your Owncast server and begin streaming.
Owncast can work with different storage providers to optionally scale your videos to many viewers using only low-powered hardware.
