Simplified Installation Process: Streamlining Your Experience

One of the most exciting features of the latest Ant Media Server update is the simplified installation process.

This streamlined feature allows you to have your server up and running in minutes, letting you focus more on creating and streaming high-quality content and less on the technicalities of setting up a server.

This effortless installation is a testament to the user-friendly approach of Ant Media Server, making it accessible to both beginners and experienced users alike.

To start the installation process, first download the install script with this command:

sudo ./ -l <LICENSE_KEY>

One of the key benefits of this update is its backward compatibility. This means it operates seamlessly with the existing installation script, ensuring that your pipelines continue to function in the same manner as before.

This compatibility guarantees a smooth transition, allowing your operations to proceed without any disruptions.
