MediaX: Embedded Video Streaming Library

Conforming to DEF STAN 00-82 Military Standards

Product Overview

MediaX is a cutting-edge lightweight embedded video streaming library designed to meet the stringent requirements of military applications, adhering to DEF STAN 00-82 standards. With a focus on high-speed, low-latency video streaming, MediaX is the ideal solution for Windows and Linux systems. It boasts a modern C++17 API and offers hardware optimization for NVidia CUDA and Intel Video Acceleration API (VAAPI).

ToolX running on Ubuntu 23.10

Send and receive video streams in C++ using only two lines of code:

#include "rtp/rtp.h"
int main(int argc, char *argv[]) {

rtp(“", 5004, "test-session-name", 640, 480, 30, "RGB24");
std::vector<uint8_t> &data = rtp.GetBufferTestPattern();
while (true)
rtp.Transmit(, false);

To use another RTP payloader just change the template class i.e. To switch to H.264 on Intel (VAAPI) use:

mediax::RtpSapTransmit<mediax::rtp::h264::gst::vaapi::RtpH264GstVaapiPayloader> rtp(“", 5004, "test-session-name-compressed", 640, 480, 30, "H264");

Support for the following codecs / video streaming standards:
