The remote streaming server uses the omni.kit.livestream.native Extension to broadcast content, as well as receive mouse and keyboard inputs coming from clients.

To enable the Extension, launch any Kit-based application using the following command-line arguments:

  • On Windows: kit.bat apps/omni.create.kit --enable omni.kit.livestream.native --no-window

  • On Linux: ./ apps/omni.create.kit --enable omni.kit.livestream.native --no-window

Should the host be located on the infrastructure of a third-party Cloud provider, it may additionally be required that the following ports be opened:

  • TCP: 27777

  • TCP: 47995 to 48012

  • TCP: 49000 to 49007

  • TCP: 49100

  • UDP: 47995 to 48012

  • UDP: 49000 to 49007


Windows environments on which the client will be executed do not require any additional dependencies or configuration.

These packages can be installed using the following command: sudo apt-get install libavcodec57 libavformat57 libavutil55
