Flumotion Services, S.A. is a Spanish company based in Barcelona, which has developed a multiformat streaming media platform to publish audio and video content via the internet. It belongs to the Fluendo multimedia services group, involved in the creation of the GStreamer multimedia framework.

Flumotion Streaming Platform[edit]

The Flumotion Streaming Platform is a CDN that supports leading formats like Windows Media, MP3 or Flash, as well as the open standard Ogg Vorbis / Ogg Theora. Therefore, it can reach nearly 100% of the internet users regardless of the operating system (such as Windows, Mac OS X or Linux) they use.

The streaming platform is based on the multimedia framework GStreamer, written in the C programming language. Flumotion also provides a basic package of its Streaming Server under the GPL.
