P2P and HTTP Live Streaming

Given the growth on the number of Internet users and the quality of their connections, building large Internet live broadcasts has become increasingly challenging.

BemTV makes use of WebRTC and the popular HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) protocol to build a hybrid CDN-P2P structure in order to decrease the number of requests to CDN servers, reducing the cost of transmission and enhancing system’s scalability.
