Session Synopsis

Ten months after its official announcement at Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2019, the Low Latency HLS (LL-HLS) specification has finally reached the end of the tunnel. After multiple iterations and a fair share of criticism by the community on some unpopular requirements in earlier versions, has Apple finally answered the industry’s need for lower latency using HLS?

In this talk, Pieter-Jan Speelmans, the Founder and CTO of THEO Technologies, reviews the evolution of the LL-HLS specification and explores how the specification has become what we know it as today. A deep dive into how exactly LL-HLS works will also be discussed, identifying its strengths, limitations and best practices.

Furthermore, the discussion explores the current state of LL-HLS in the online media streaming industry and gives an example of what an end-to-end implementation could look like with the updated specification.
