RTSP vs. WebRTC: Which to use for a Mobile App

When we were designing the architecture for the Red5 Pro Mobile video streaming SDK, we had some critical early choices we needed to make. One of the biggest was what protocol we should base it on. After some initial research and experimenting, we decided on RTSP (Real Time Streaming Protocol). But why did we choose… Continue reading RTSP vs. WebRTC: Which to use for a Mobile App

NAB 2024 Made the Case for WebRTC Streaming

A lot of things are labeled historic these days, but it’s no exaggeration to suggest the M&E industry reached a milestone in April when every major theme at the National Association of Broadcasters Show spotlighted the need for affordable, massively scalable real-time streaming solutions. Cost-conscious discourse dominating the exhibit halls and conference rooms focused on… Continue reading NAB 2024 Made the Case for WebRTC Streaming

New WebRTC Tools Break Barriers to Multi-Camera Live Streaming

Why is multi-camera live streaming still missing from the vast majority of sports productions? The answer is simple: efforts to shoehorn multiple simultaneous camera feeds into existing live streaming operations don’t work. As a result, searches for better approaches to this much-needed enhancement have reached the mission-critical stage across a broad range of consumer, government,… Continue reading New WebRTC Tools Break Barriers to Multi-Camera Live Streaming

7 Ways WebRTC Solves Ultra-Low Latency Streaming

How Do You Get Ultra-Low Latency with WebRTC? As we’ve covered before, WebRTC (Web Real-time Communication) is currently the best way to get ultra-low latency in video streaming. We’ve also mentioned – quite a few times– that Red5 Pro’s WebRTC implementation results in sub 250 ms of latency. That feature enables fully interactive live-streaming, making… Continue reading 7 Ways WebRTC Solves Ultra-Low Latency Streaming

Scalable WebRTC Is CPaaS Game Changer

The pandemic-accelerated shift to pervasive reliance on cloud-based video communications has transformed the outlook for communications platforms-as-a-service (CPaaS) providers who want to seize new opportunities within and beyond their core business markets. This new perspective stems from the fact that it’s now possible to implement video-based communications that go far beyond the capabilities of the… Continue reading Scalable WebRTC Is CPaaS Game Changer

Debunking the Myth: 8 Reasons Why WebRTC is Capable of High Quality Audio and Video Today

For anyone pursuing new opportunities in the real-time interactive video arena, there’s a lot riding on understanding that there doesn’t need to be any constraint on audio or video quality when WebRTC serves as the underlying streaming protocol. When talking with developers evaluating the Red5 Pro platform, we hear over and over again that WebRTC… Continue reading Debunking the Myth: 8 Reasons Why WebRTC is Capable of High Quality Audio and Video Today

5 Factors in Choosing Low-Latency HLS vs WebRTC

When it comes to deciding between low latency HLS and WebRTC, which protocol delivers the best live streaming experience? Since the protocol determines how quickly the encoded video data will be transported across an internet connection, the decision of which one to use is very important. Wowza recently published an article that contains misinformation about… Continue reading 5 Factors in Choosing Low-Latency HLS vs WebRTC
