The CDN + RTMP live streaming technology usually publishes streams using the RTMP protocol, and converts to HTTP-FLV protocol when playing streams, which enables the live streaming can be played directly on the web pages.
Different from the most common CDN + RTMP live streaming technologies, ZEGO's live streaming solutions enable real-time communication between the host and the audience to reach dedicated access line alike quality by using the following technologies:
- Private transmission protocol
- Private transmission algorithm
- BGP (Border Gateway Protocol) multipath
The table below shows the differences in detail:
|Technology||Common CDN + RTMP live streaming||ZEGO live streaming|
|Transmission protocol||TCP-based RTMP||The UDP-based private transmission protocol|
|Transmission algorithm||TCP||The ZEGO private algorithm with anti-packet loss, bandwidth adaptable technologies.|
|Network path||Single path||BGP multipath|
To meet various live streaming needs, ZEGO now supports forwarding streams to multiple CDNs, and sharing your live streaming to social media.
