web socket streaming
1. I’m guessing you’re buffering one GOP before starting playback, hence the latency. Can this be adjusted to buffer a few frames instead? Reducing GOP size too low will require to significantly increase bitrate, which we’d like to avoid. 2. Is your web socket video player open source or do you have an extended API for it? 3. We’d like to add a very specific token based authentication without the use of aliasing. Could you provide some details on how to start with developing a plugin?
- Currently, we are limited by the Media Source Extension (MSE) of the browser to have a full GOP before an actual playback. However, in the future, this will be adjusted such that a full GOP is not required.
- The EMS html5-based streaming player is not open sourced at the moment. But we’ll be happy to hear from you what features/capabilities you need on the player and we can probably provide a custom one that will fit your needs.
- For the token based authentication, would this apply to all streams to EMS in general or just for the websocket playback (which is why you were asking the previous question)?
