How to reduce wowza cloud streaming connection time ?


I’m new in Wowza cloud streaming, I implement audio streaming in my app using Wowza cloud rest API and GoCoder iOS SDK.

I have an issue for broadcast streaming connection to take time more than 20 sec. after I start streaming

How to solve this connection issue?

Hi @nirav patel, happy to help you. The reason is takes so long is because the default for playback in HLS on iOS devices is three 10 second chunks. iOS devices need 3 chunks cached before the stream starts. Hence around 30 second delay.

You can adjust this for Cloud by enabling the transcoder in the manager and following this workflow:

Hope this helps.
