I want to keep these low because I'm trying to keep client's video roughly in sync with one another.
When I view the stream over HLS it seems to stutter every second, or more precisely every "cupertinoChunkDurationTarget" milliseconds. I have tried playing around with various encoder and Wowza settings but can't seem to get rid of it. Any suggestions?
Chunks must start on a key frame. So it is best to use a key frame interval that is factor of the
cupertinoChunkDurationTarget setting. Try 2 second key frame frequency and cupertinoChunkDurationTarget "2000" (2 seconds). You might also try 24 fps and see if that makes a difference.
