I know this has been discussed before, but trying to sort out a problem.
1) New wowza server vs4 sitting on cloud 8GB RAM, 4vCPU. Tested up to 500 live and all fine harware wise.
Streaming with FLME or WireCast as h264 acc or mp3.
With RTMP playback all is fine, latency is like 0.5s (Encoder set to 1s keyframe with 25fps at 350kbps).
So RTMP playback is all fine.
When it comes to Android, iOS or Safari using html5 fallback, then latency is like 20-40sec!!! which is so far from ideal.
Server already set to "low latency" settings (without any further tuning)
Player in use is JW v6 (latest JW Player)
That where my question comes in?
First of all is why? what is causing such a huge latency on http live playback?
Even bypassing JW Player on iOS and going dirctly to wawza link, saem result. So pointing back to wawza having such a big latency.
If anyone can please share some light or point to the right direction, that would be great.
