  • Multiple Channels per User, allowing a single user to broadcast multiple streams at the same time without needing multiple accounts
  • Video Stream Recording and On-Demand Playback
  • Per Channel Real-Time Chat for Video Streams
  • Manual Video Uploading of MP4s that are sourced outside of OSP
  • Real-Time Chat Moderation by Channel Owners (Banning/Unbanning)
  • Protected Streams to allow access only to the audience you want
  • Live Channels - Keep chatting and hang out when a stream isn't on
  • Webhooks - Connect OSP to other services via fully customizable HTTP requests which will pass information
  • Embed you stream or video directly into another web page easily
  • Share channels or videos via Facebook or Twitter quickly
  • Ability to Customize the UI as a Theme for your own personal look
