The 4th Real-Time Streaming Hackathon has come to an end, and it was like a big online gathering of creative minds from all over the world. They got together to try out cool things with Ant Media Server. Now, as we think back on this exciting adventure, it’s clear that this hackathon wasn’t just a contest. It was more like a party where everyone was celebrating new ideas and working together.
Participants have built streaming applications or plugins on top of Ant Media Server to solve real-world problems! Before we dive into the challenge and get to know the participants and their solutions, let’s meet the team Jury!

Real-Time Streaming Hackers!
We’d like to extend our appreciation to all the teams that participated in the 4th Real-Time Streaming Hackathon.

Unfortunately, eleven teams couldn’t complete their solutions in time for the finals, but we encourage and hope that they will continue their endeavors.
We understand that the journey of innovation comes with its set of challenges, and we’re confident that these teams will refine and complete their solutions. As a testament to our commitment to supporting the entire community, we look forward to listing their completed projects on the Ant Media marketplace, providing them with the recognition they deserve.
