Live Streaming

  • Streamflow helps with the entire workflow from ingest to playback. Your encoder connects to our RTMP entry point and we handle the rest of the process which consists of encoding, transcoding, security and CDN Delivery. Keep track of your CDN usage and content analytics using the Streamflow Video Portal. Implement our HTML5 player as part of your application’s front end.

  • Not necessarily. Streamflow provides an end-to-end live streaming solution, you can feed us your streams from either a software or hardware encoder and we will take care of the rest.

    If you maintain your own streaming server (Wowza streaming server, Flussonic, Xtream codes etc.), you can simply implement the CDN on top of your solution in order to create the smoothest possible video playback experience.

  • Standard HTTP-based streaming protocols default 30 seconds of glass-to-glass latency. For certain use cases, however, we are able to help cut down the latency of HLS and MPEG-DASH streams under 10 seconds thanks to our cooperation with Bradmax Player. You can read more about latency and how can Streamflow help in our blogpost about Live streaming latency.

  • Yes! Streamflow allows you to create multiple live streaming channels with a 24/7 availability. We can help you to convert your MPEG-TS or RTMP channels using the HTTP Live Streaming Protocol (HLS) or you can also simply implement the CDN with your existing middleware solution and deliver your HLS and MPEG-DASH stream using the CDN.

    If VOD is also part of your game, we’ve got you covered. Streamflow creates the possibility for you to offer your clients IPTV and VOD simultaneously, with the capability of uploading your video files directly to our storage servers.

  • It is possible to activate ABR for your live streams and it’s entirely up to you to choose which video qualities you would like your end client’s to have access to, increasing the playback success on a diverse range of devices using a range of various internet connection speeds. You can read up on ABR in our article which provides further information about recommended bitrate and video resolution set up in the Streamflow Knowledge Base.
