Sorry to ask this question which has been asked a million times already probably.
I am learning about streaming real-time content and have configured a stream that uses RMTP but the RMTP stream has a 4-5 second delay (As displayed by the clocks)
As you can see from the clocks that there is a distinct difference between "What is streaming" , What we are broadcasting and What we are viewing.
When i see my stream in the broadcasting screen there is 0 delay in the reactions from the stream screen and the broadcasting screen so there is "real-time" activity between those 2, So I am confused as to where the 3-5 seconds delay comes from when viewing on a client.
My PC spec is a
i7 4790k @ 4ghz
500GB Samsung Evo SSD, 3tb Sata HDD,
16GB 1866Mhz ram
MSI Gaming GTX 970 4GB
(thought i would add system specs in case my system is underpowered to do real-time streaming)
Would this be fast enough to achieve "real-time" or is the 3-5 second delay between what is streaming and what is seen completely unavoidable?
Also if i view the stream in VLC there is a slight delay between the "what we are viewing" screen and what VLC is showing but no where near 3-5 seconds more like 1/2 a second or less.
