Sydney to Boston is quite a ways to travel; 10,091 miles in fact (or for those that enjoy a more logical measurement system: 16,239 km). Despite that, our end to end WebRTC latency still holds steady at 500ms (give or take a few hundredths) That’s 20,182 miles per hour or 32,478 kilometers per hour (I’m… Continue reading WebRTC Latency By The Numbers
Scaling Challenges in WebRTC Live Streaming 1:1 != 1:1,000,000 When it comes to WebRTC, size matters. People have this assumption that if you can run a 1:1 video call then getting to a 3-way video call is just as easy. And well, if that’s the case, then 4-way video call shouldn’t be far behind. And… Continue reading Guest Post: Tsahi Levent-Levi – WebRTC Scaling Challenges

From increased security to plug-in free communication, we’ve covered the many benefits of WebRTC. However, not all platforms support it. As a server-side media processor, Red5 Pro can effectively handle streams from different sources and networks so that video and audio… Continue reading WebRTC Failover: What Is It and How Does It Work?
It’s estimated that about 65% of the general population are visual learners. In a visual learner’s brain, words are converted into pictures (the opposite is true for auditory learners). With this in mind, we are excited to introduce an ongoing series of video tutorials! These guides, along with all our documentation, will demonstrate a variety… Continue reading Red5 Pro Video Tutorials
Jetpacks have been a mainstay for starry-eyed dreamers and futurists for a long time. Despite the occasional story from some engineer a-la stunt-double, that potential continues unrealized, a mere daydream of all those frustrated commuters stuck in traffic. At Red5 Pro, we’re also focused on the future and strive to build it (albeit more concretely).… Continue reading HLS: Because Apple Doesn’t Like Sharing
