When streaming hit center stage, it was dominated by RTMP and RTSP. But these were proprietary protocols, requiring dedicated servers and infrastructure. Then came chunked HTTP delivery which radically changed the game, enabling delivery to leverage established HTTP servers and technologies long used to serve web pages. Fast-forward to today and you have a bevy of streaming protocols available, from traditional technologies like RTMP and RTSP, to HTTP Adaptive protocols like HLS, MPEG-DASH, and CMAF, and newer entrants like SRT, WOWZ, and WebRTC. In this webinar, we’ll explore the pros and cons of the different streaming protocols for different use cases as well as looking at best practices for implementation including configuration tuning and other optimization that make the protocols operate at peak performance. Note: this webinar was originally scheduled for Thursday, May 28 @ 10am PT. It has been rescheduled to Thursday, July 16th @ 10am PT.
