Tooloop Open Media Server


I am happy to announce that Tooloop, my open media server for public and live media installations, is now in alpha phase and ready to test.

Tooloop is an open media server framework.

  • a well defined range of industrial grade hardware.
  • a minimal Linux, customized for public multimedia installations.
  • a set of network management and monitoring tools.

It’s all open source and available on GitHub

You can run pretty much any Linux application on Tooloop OS but openFrameworks is specifically targeted and I would love to get your feedback before approaching a 1.0 release.

Many ideas of Tooloop OS are based on the article in the openframeworks book on keeping a linux installation up forever.
