Streaming live video at low latency with user-interaction laid on top is hard, but it's about to get a lot easier with standards-based approaches and existing network technology. A lot of app developers right now are taking cues from HQ Trivia and adding the ability for viewers to interact with live streamers in relative real-time, through chat, answering questions, betting, bidding, and more. They are all currently running into the same challenge of bringing the latency of live streaming video down, while syncing up interactions between the live streamer and thousands of viewers. There is currently a race between WebRTC-based approaches which are very low in latency but hard to scale, and HTTP-based approaches which are easy to scale but higher in latency. Neither are great. In this session I’ll speak to the different approaches available and the standards-based approaches that will soon help solve the issue using technologies that are already available to us.
