Latency means delay, that is, the actual time lag that exists during the transmission of streaming content to the viewer’s screen. The latency range widely experienced commonly is between 30-60 seconds.
Latency occurs due to various reasons, like,
- Poor encoding efficiency
- Wide audience spectrum
- Different geographical locations
- Local network problems
- Low bandwidth
- Traffic load
- Device/server compatibility
