Installing Studio

Erizos Studio can be installed in two modes:

  1. Single Client Setup - Used for simple single studio configurations with only one control client.
  2. Distributed Clients Setup - Used for larger installations where there are multiple control clients.

The option to choose the suitable installation will pop up after launching the installation file.


In a Single Client setup, content created on the client is only available on that client. If you need to share content across multiple clients you must use the Distributed Clients setup.

Step 1: Install Erizos Studio server

Launch the installation file and install Erizos Studio Server. Erizos Studio Launcher

You can see that Erizos Server is installed correctly by navigation to http://[SERVER IP]:5550 in your browser of choice.


If you are greeted by License error window, that means the Erizos Server was installed before Erizos Licenses. See License error for more information

Step 2: Install Erizos Studio client
