Putting Video Transport Protocols, RTMP and SRT, to the Test

Not sure which transport protocol to use for streaming live video with low end-to-end latency over the internet? We put two of the most commonly used protocols, RTMP and SRT, to the test to see exactly how they compare. This white paper explains the test setup in detail and reveals the results of how each protocol performed.

In this white paper, see the results of our testing and discover how RTMP and SRT stack up against each other over public networks. You will learn:

The impact of using the SRT and RTMP transport protocol on end-to-end latency

The impact of hardware accelerated encoding and decoding on latency using both RTMP and SRT

How RTMP and SRT compare when tested for maximum bandwidth for long distance streams

How SRT packs a powerful punch, consistently outperforming RTMP when tested in real-world conditions
