We just started to use WSC. It seems the right solutions for our needs. We found it simple to configure to get the first streams going.
What remains is to solve the 30-40 sec delay we exepriencing.
What we need is a lowres (320x240) low latency(+/- 1 sec) livestream to about 100 viewers.
Our current test setup is: Gocoder --> WSC passtrough --> Hosted page. We tried a configuration of WSC with and without the Lowlatency option and expirimented with the buffer size. On the Gocoder we tried the differend bitrates, fps and keyframe intervals of 1-2 secs. We don’t see any difference
When we start the stream the playback page shows the stream within 2 seconds. The player on the hosted page detects the stream only after 30-40 seconds.
What can we do to reduce the delay? We started with the free trial but to rule out trial restrictions we subscribed to a monthly “Pay-as-you-Go”.
After reading posts about the subject I understand that is difficult to get low latency with HTTP streaming. My other question is: does the player on the hosted page use HTTP or RTPM ?
