Thread: Is multicast P2P live streaming?

  1. #1

    Default Is multicast P2P live streaming?

    Is the module Multicast will work as a P2P live streaming technology? If it is not, I just wonder what is the benefit of multicast over the regular rtmp flash streaming. Thanks

    Multicast is a technique for streaming to multiple clients where special routers replicate a single stream. Multicast does not work over the internet. If you do not have a large multicast capable internal network, you do not need to be concerned with multicast.

    P2P is where the clients directly communicate with each other. P2P might have applications in VOD streaming but it has some downsides for live streaming. I wouldn't be too concerned with P2P either.
