  • To compensate and increase the business Most  MSO are also now  switching to provide internet to their subscribers.
  • The consumers expectation has gone double in few years with the internet and other devices that has come to the market.
  • In a few years to come Pay TV model to watch only on TV is going to be the past.
  • Today by going on world records Streaming TV is becoming more popular – Netflix, youtube TV , HBO and other installable TV apps and set top boxes.
  • The advantage of Streaming TV for the consumer is they can watch it  on multiple platforms rather only on TV with a single payment.
  • The consumer can watch all the channels on TV, with internet set top box , and directly on android, I-phone mobile, Tabs, Website,  PC , Laptops and on  any device that have the facility to  browse the internet.
  • The Data shows the Streaming TV is increasing and traditional TV viewership is coming down
  • In a short time there are going to be plenty of streaming TVs like Netflix that are going to come in to the market.
  • They will all deliver digital multiple channels to everyone in world.
  • If you would like to come up in the market – then you should start multiple channels on web, mobile and TV over the internet.
  • Now you have the advantage over others. that may not last
  • What will you do when others take over your market?
  • In india, Sun next,  youtube TV , airtel TV, tatasky TV etc. all are going to have the major market share that includes direct subscriber clients unless MSO’s act fast and upgrade their technology.
  • Before that could happen, MSO’s should start TV over the internet and provide all channels in all digital media to all every subscriber.

Best Practices to follow for Live Video Streaming

What kind of settings and practices are good for professional Live video streaming?

Use IVB7 video streaming equipment, the encoding software and the Livebox server for the best experience.

Let’s talk about some of the best practices that you should generally follow when you stream live over the internet

Always use standard streaming protocols such as RTMP, RTSP, RTP or WebRTC. Never use non-standard propitiatory protocols as it will affect your streaming quality, make you dependent and locked to a third-party server or provider and make you spend a lot of money. So,never settle for non-standard streaming methods such as using an X protocol to stream video using an X software or server.

How to achieve the best latency?

Always select the nearest located server for the best and optimum performance. Ask for the original Livebox low latency streaming CDN servers. Price wise and Quality wise, nothing beats the original Livebox live streaming server.

How do I know if I am using a propitiatory streaming protocol in my current setup?

Check if your live video can be directly played by multiple video players and web players from VLC,Windows media player to Jwplayer and clappr. If one of those players is unable to play your content without conversion, you are stuck with a propitiatory protocol. Call us and switch to Livebox server right away so that our experts can guide you to use industry standards so that you can have an optimum streaming experience.

How should you setup your encoder settings for different kinds of internet connections?

For slow data cards or 2g connections:

  1. Use a H.265 encoder preferably or H.264 if that’s unavailable
  2. Use a bitrate between 350 to 500k
  3. Use a resolution of 720×480
  4. Frame rate of 15 fps
  5. Turn de-interlacing on

For very fast connections:

When we say very fast internet connection,we mean a minimum of 100 Mbps constant speed or higher as of 2017

  1. H.264 / H.265 encoder
  2. 1500 kbps bitrate
  3. Resolution of a minimum of 1920×1080 or higher
  4. 30 to 60 fps
  5. De-interlacing on for better picture quality although the difference will be minor

Also remember that with H.265, you can tweak the settings to stream at a much higher quality while using the same amount of bandwidth that H.264 uses for a particular quality.

For medium speed connections:

These would be the best settings for connections with an average speed between 5 to 10mbps

  1. H.264 / H.265 encoder
  2. 800 kpbs
  3. Resolutions of a minimum of 720p
  4. 30 fps
  5. De-interlacing turned on.

These are just some examples on how you can stream depending on your connection environment. However, for best results, you should try varying these settings even more depending on the speed of the actual connection since there can be fluctuations in latency depending on the wireless signals and the distance between you and the server. If you would like to dig in a little bit more about how you can setup transcoding settings on LIvebox to distribute to Youtube,Facebook or Periscope, have a look at google’s recommendations for youtube streaming here
