Castr provides two cutting-edge protocols to ensure Low Latency streaming, delivering a seamless and real-time streaming experience for your viewers.
LL-HLS (Low Latency HLS): With LL-HLS, viewers can experience a significantly minimized delay, reducing latency to less than 15 seconds. This protocol allows for a smoother streaming experience on both mobile and desktop platforms.
ULL (Ultra-Low Latency): Going one step further, ULL reduces the stream latency to an impressive less than two seconds, offering near-real-time engagement for your audience. This protocol is particularly beneficial in use cases like live sports broadcasting, interactive webinars, live auctions, and live concerts, where the real-time interaction and minimal delay significantly enhance the viewer's experience and engagement.
Note: LL-HLS is an exclusive feature available only for our Ultra plan subscribers.
As this feature is in the demo mode, it only support up to 5 concurrent viewers and is not available for trial users. The Castr logo overlay will be present on your stream.
To start streaming with low-latency, setup your stream as usual using the RTMP(or SRT) server and key, then toggle on the button to get the Low latency streaming URL. Now you can try it out from the player URL generated by Castr.
If you're interested in availing this feature without the logo overlay for your future streams, or if you require any assistance, please reach out to us via our 24/7 Support. We're always here to help.
