Why use HLS?


I researched most video streaming protocols when we architectured in 2015
RTP, RTMP, WebRTC, DASH, HDS, MSS, HLS
HLS is the only one that meets our needs, which are:
– Easy to play on all deivce types: PC, Android, iOS, Web based and native
– Easy on client side: Open source video players
– Easy CDN integration: HLS is more like static content
The downside is the delay and the lack of accurate seeking.
