Human interaction has changed over the last couple of years owing to the Coronavirus pandemic and unmistakably technology has played a crucial and mixed role in it then, and now in the recovery period. Personal and business transactions have gone digital and online. The ubiquitous video has gained tremendous popularity in both the internet and mobile applications, causing a torrent of video content being developed, distributed and also consumed in very increasing amounts. This has resulted in the video format capturing the attention of businesses, services, organisations and even governments.
In the realm of smartphone and mobile app usage, this trend has caused a remarkable change and influenced our ways of communication and interaction. Live streaming video content has become increasingly popular, so much that most social media platforms have introduced it or something similar to it, in their UI and UX applications. For instance, the social media app Twitter launched in 2006, added video content later in 2013 to keep up with popular trends.
To Meet the Increasing Demand for Low-Latency Streaming
The ever-increasing popularity of mobile devices and smartphones have led to a tidal wave of mobile applications flooding the market. And video formats have gained the maximum prominence and popularity. Although the internet was not made for video formats, higher levels of applications such as HLS protocol and similar ones, are trying hard to ensure uninterrupted video playback. The need of the hour is low-latency live video for many entities and applications.
Users want to leverage this medium and the demand for streaming video content goes up, but the control they want in quality and interaction with audiences depends on the streaming servers, the software and intricacies involved at the backend. There is a delay in what a camera captures as video and when the video is displayed on a screen, which is called latency. If this delay is under the 5 second range, it is low-latency streaming. The mobile smartphone and portable devices are becoming increasingly popular and the need for video on such devices are equally increasing. Many popular social media platforms have started offering a video streaming or playing facility in their apps.
