Install Streama


Streama is written in Java with support for multiple platforms. The latest release can be found at Streama Releases.

System requirements

Streama requires a minimum of 2gb RAM and a modern multicore processor. Low end or older systems do not preform well or at all, this includes the RaspberryPi and variants which are not currently supported.

Linux

Ubuntu is the recommended distribution for Streama.

Install Java

Java 8 is the recommended, Streama may not work with Java 7 or 10.

sudo apt install openjdk-8-jre

Download Streama

Create or enter the directory streama will be run from (the directory should be owned as the user that will run Streama). /data/streama or /srv/streama are good options, but any will work.

Download the war from the GitHub releases page. You can use the example below to download.

wget https://github.com/streamaserver/streama/releases/download/vEXAMPLE/streama-EXAMPLE.war

Make the .war executable with (replace the filename with the one you downloaded):

chmod +x streama-X.Y.war

java -jar streama-X.Y.war
