Castr provides two cutting-edge protocols to ensure Low Latency streaming, delivering a seamless and real-time streaming experience for your viewers.

  1. 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.

  2. SSS (Sub Second Streams): Going one step further, SSS 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. You can learn more about it here.

Note: LL-HLS is an exclusive feature available only for our Ultra plan and Premium-yearly subscribers.

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.
