LL-HLS Test Page
With the Low Latency HLS specification being slowly finalised by Apple in anticipation of the iOS14 release in September, THEO has been developing an extension of THEOplayer which supports Low Latency HLS across all different platforms.
LL-HLS allows to deliver streams at low latency and is a great way to reach the Apple ecosystem. Thanks to THEOplayer with LL-HLS, you can reuse these same streams to deliver your content with low latency across all platforms.
In the player below you can see our industry-leading LL-HLS support in action and test it out yourself. Our friends at Wowza have kindly provided a stream from their LL-HLS packager implementation. The current player is a beta version and under heavy development, anticipating a public release soon.
Please note: This page is best viewed on common desktop browsers. Achievable latency in this demo is dependent on your local network and configuration. Contact us below to help you optimise your stream for your specific use case.
We have been informed the stream in use intermittently shows issues and goes offline. If playback is not smooth, please attempt again at a later point while our partners work out the issues on their network.
The latency metric shown here is based on a combination of your client device clock and the EXT-X-PROGRAM-DATE-TIME inserted into the stream by your server (which depends on your server clock). If the latency metric is different from the expected, please check the clock synchronisation between your client and server.
