Real-time video, audio, and data for developers
LiveKit is an open source Twilio Video or Agora alternative. Build live video and audio applications and features using a modern, end-to-end WebRTC stack.
Used by thousands of projects and companies including:
Running WebRTC infrastructure used to require a dedicated team of experts. The @livekit folks made it so much simpler.
This is awesome!!! Solves exactly the set of problems that led us to build video infra in house at Gather.
As someone who's done a lot of browser-based video, including Zoom, Twilio, and other big players, may I say - just use @livekit
Starting to get really excited about the possibilities with @livekit for use in @passage3d.
Ben. Dude. @livekit Cloud. We use this for @hyperfy_io and Decentraland uses the self hosted version. Get on it!
Excited for this addition to the open source video infrastructure stack! Looking forward to trying out @livekit.

LiveKit Meet is a Zoom-style video conferencing app built with LiveKit Components.
A tiny 2D world you can join, explore and hear other users' audio in stereo, based on their relative position and distance.
