Meraki uses technology called HTTP live streaming. It cuts down the requirement to have an additional piece of software to view the video but also introduces this small buffering delay. Due to how HLS functions, there is a small buffering period which leads to a slight delay in the video stream. For local direct streams, this delay can be 5-10 seconds.
Philip How could it "hurt" Meraki to support the latest RFC when the protocol offering a backwards compatibility with existing web browser? This is what customers pay for, to be "able" to use and offering the latest technology.
"Despite all the modifications to HLS, Apple Low Latency HLS still results in latency from 3 - 7 seconds. As we’ve stated again and again –and again– seconds of latency will always be too high for fully interactive, real-time live streaming.
Furthermore, since ALHSL is controlled by Apple, it is NOT a community-based standard. Thus solutions built around Apple Low Latency HLS may face issues if Apple decides to make any changes to how it works as any changes won’t be subject to community review or debate.
Lastly, the implementation of ALHSL is more complex than Community Low Latency HLS without real-time latency results."
