Technical Release: Low Latency HTML5 Player

The recent switch from Flash to HTML5 increased the latency of many streaming media providers. For some streaming scenarios the regular 20–30 second delay isn’t problematic, but low latency truly matters in gambling and sports where seconds lost are critical to revenue. Our Low Latency HTML5 Player combines the stability, compatibility and scalability of HLS with the low latency of Flash.

This means that through our platform, users can create smooth players, with a latency of 4 to 6 seconds – a big improvement over the standard. Our players are device agnostic, backed by a rapid and global CDN.
