If you have a pre-recorded video then Amazon Cloudfront and WOWZA are the best options. On the other hand, if your major focus is live streaming then OpenTok is preferred.

Different Streaming Strategies Offered By Mindbowser

There are different streaming strategies available and can be used as per the need.

  • True Streaming
    Although most users cannot tell the difference, “real-time streaming,” sometimes called “true streaming,” is analogous to broadcast radio and TV. Although there are always more video frames in the memory buffer at each moment, real-time streaming content essentially passes through the computer. A user does not have to wait to download a large file before seeing the video or hearing the sound. Instead, the media is sent in a continuous stream and is played as it arrives. This is the most basic form of streaming.
  • HTTP Progressive
    Download In progressive download, video is delivered by a regular HTTP web server rather than a streaming server. In most instances, the video delivered using this technique is temporarily stored on the viewer’s hard drive as it’s received, and then it’s played from the hard drive. It might seem like it is streaming because it can be watched as soon as part of the file has been downloaded. It is a good solution when the viewer has a slow connection. The progressive download also uses TCP protocol to ensure that each network packet arrives intact and will request retransmission if not.
  • Adaptive Streaming
    Adaptive streaming technologies encode multiple live or on-demand streams and switch them adaptively based upon changing line conditions and other variables. When the connection is good, the viewer gets a high-quality, high-data-rate stream, but if connection speed drops, the server will send a lower-data-rate file to ensure a continuous connection. There are multiple adaptive streaming alternatives today, including Adobe’s Dynamic Streaming, Apple’s HTTP Live Streaming, and Microsoft’s Smooth Streaming.
  • HTTP Live Streaming
    HTTP Live Streaming (or HLS) is an adaptive streaming communications protocol created by Apple to communicate with iOS and Apple TV devices and Macs running OSX in Snow Leopard or later. HLS streaming is a truly adaptive bitrate technology. When the video is encoded to HLS, multiple files are created for different bandwidths and different resolutions. The files are then encoded and the streams are mapped to the client in real-time based on screen size and available bandwidth.

What is multibitrate switching?

It’s also called Adaptive bitrate switching. Basically, it refers to the ability of a video player to adjust the quality of a video dynamically according to the available bandwidth, network conditions, and user’s device performance. To sum all of these, adaptive bitrate streaming allows seamless content quality switching which is not supported by progressive video playback. Read more here.
