Low Latency Streaming

How to Enable Low Latency Streaming Option?

Latency means delay, that is, the actual time lag that exists during the transmission of streaming content to the viewer's screen. The latency range widely experienced commonly is between 30-60 seconds.

Latency occurs due to various reasons, like,

  • Poor encoding efficiency
  • Wide audience spectrum
  • Different geographical locations
  • Local network problems
  • Low bandwidth
  • Traffic load
  • Device/server compatibility
