Streaming mobile live video with low latency to thousands of viewers with a plethora of different devices, operating systems and browsers is a challenge riddled with difficult engineering angles and cumbersome, often surprising, corner cases. For a complete and robust solution the minimum requirements are: a stable broadcasting protocol that adapts to network conditions, real-time transcoding to multiple formats, low-latency and adaptive video delivery to many different devices and orchestration of all parts.
