Low Latency Smooth Streaming

Jan 17, 2011 at 3:16 PM

Hello all,

I'm trying to do some low latency streaming tests using IIS Media Services 4.0 and SMF 2.3.

SSME 1.5 introduces low latency streaming and beacuse the 2.3 version of SMF is upgraded to use SSME 1.5 it could stream low latency streams too.

I have tried several different timings in "SMFPlayer.BufferingTime" but never achieved low latency, the best latency I can obtain are 20 seconds (!).

It seems that I'm doing something wrong or I'm looking in the wrong place...


Has anyone tried or succeeded in low latency streams with the latest versions of the Smooth streaming ecosystem (IISMS 4.0, SSME 1.5, SMF 2.3)?

Thanks in advance

The low-latency feature is not just a client-side solution - it requires low-latency support on the encoder end too.
