CII Best Practices FIWARE Chapter License badge Build Status Docker badge Support badge
Documentation badge FIWARE member status

Kurento Media Server is Kurento's core element. It is responsible for media transmission, processing, loading and recording. It is implemented in low level technologies based on GStreamer to optimize the resource consumption. It provides the following features:

  • Networked streaming protocols, including HTTP, RTP and WebRTC.
  • Group communications (MCUs and SFUs functionality) supporting both media mixing and media routing/dispatching.
  • Generic support for computational vision and augmented reality filters.
  • Media storage supporting writing operations for WebM and MP4 and playing in all formats supported by GStreamer.
  • Automatic media transcoding between any of the codecs supported by GStreamer including VP8, H.264, H.263, AMR, OPUS, Speex, G.711, etc.

This project is part of FIWARE. For more information check the FIWARE Catalogue entry for Context Processing, Analysis and Visualization.

The Kurento project provides detailed documentation including tutorials, installation and development guides. The Open API specification, also known as Kurento Protocol, is available on






All source code belonging to the Kurento project can be found in the Kurento GitHub organization page.


Kurento has a full set of different tests mainly focused in the integrated and system tests, more specifically e2e tests that anyone can run to assess different parts of Kurento, namely functional, stability, tutorials, and API.

In order to assess properly Kurento from a final user perspective, a rich suite of E2E tests has been designed and implemented. To that aim, the Kurento Testing Framework (KTF) has been created. KTF is a part of the Kurento project aimed to carry out end-to-end (E2E) tests for Kurento. KTF has been implemented on the top of two well-known open-source testing frameworks: JUnit and Selenium.

If you want to know more about the Kurento Testing Framework and how to run all the available tests for Kurento you will find more information in Kurento developers documentation > Testing
