I have configured a development server locally in my office and actually to my surprise got the streaming engine server up and running in minutes and was able to start a live stream from my iphone within minutes. Very cool!
Also, through some tuning from parameter with the documentation, (Cupertino Streaming Packetizer) and a custom parameter, take my latency down from almost 45 seconds when viewing on the Wowza player to about 8 seconds. Meaning the time I moved my phone to another location and when it actually appears on the player screen, all running on the same network.
Having said that, I also connected via LTE to the server and got the same results. Shouldn’t the performance be better locally vs LTE? Are there other performance tuning to increase the performace? On my Application monitor, I do notice that I get 1 Adobe RTMP protocol connection and 0 Apple HLS protocol connection.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
