Youtube Live Low Latency Streaming
YouTube announces a low latency live streaming option to help improve live chat experience. YouTube Live has been in “Beta” for a while and early experience from users have reported in forums that the latency was an issue. Our tests here at PTZOptics measured the live streaming latency to fluctuate between 35 seconds to 2 minutes depending on the length of the live stream.
With the optimize for “low latency” live streaming option users can choose whether they would like to optimize the live stream performance for latency or buffering. The trade off is the recording quality and live interaction experience. In this video Paul Richards from PTZOptics will discuss the pros and cons of these options depending on your live streaming requirements.
