HTTP-based Low Latency protocols, including Low Latency HLS (LL-HLS), are constantly evolving as they mature to meet the market demands. For the past 5 years, our experts have been developing the support for low latency playback across multiple devices. With THEO, you can now exceed your viewers expectations by delivering stunning LL-HLS video streams anywhere using our THEOplayer Universal Video Player Solution.

LOW LATENCY HLS

HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) was initially created and released by Apple in 2009 to solve the problems of scaling. The HLS protocol has become one of the most popular protocols used today, and is widely supported. It’s biggest disadvantage, as with other similar HTTP based streaming protocols, is latency.

To combat latency, the industry and community sought to find solutions. Twitter’s Periscope with LHLS in 2016 (with the help of experts at THEO!), as well as community L-HLS in 2018. In 2019, Apple released their extension of the protocol: LL-HLS. If you want to read more about the evolution of the specification, check out our blog here. Low Latency HLS, aims to provide the same scalability as HLS, but achieve it with a latency of 2-8s (compared to 24-30 second latencies with traditional solutions).
