Hi @Abdul Farooq @rahul7827
Thanks for your suggestions. We will update the below blog post and add the WSL part into it as well.

One of the members of the community also made a video tutorial on it using an older version of Ant Media Server. Although the Ant Media Server installation on WSL is slightly different now.

For now you need to run below commands to install and run Ant Media Server on WSL.

sudo wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ant-media/Scripts/master/install_ant-media-server.sh && sudo chmod 755 install_ant-media-server.sh


sudo ./install_ant-media-server.sh -i <ANT_MEDIA_SERVER_ZIP_FILE> -s false

After the installation, go to /usr/local/antmedia folder and run the start script:

sudo ./start.sh

I hope it helps.

Apart from what the wonderful community members already mentioned, docker and Oracle virtualbox are also great solutions for running Ant Media Server on windows host.

Correct @Connessione , Earlier i was also using virtualbox, were not aware of WSL, @Mohit suggested me for WSL. 

Installed the AMS using WSL on windows by following the video tutorial mentioned by @Yash

I felt this is light weight and easy to configure, BTW yash you mentioned that


Although the Ant Media Server installation on WSL is slightly different now.

I installed 2.5.1 on my local windows machine, opened console area, published stream from sample file. Everything was smooth.

Could you please mention that step where we need to make the changes.


Thank you.
