The team at Red5 Pro is always working to improve live streaming and contribute to efforts to distribute effective video live streaming technology. As the creators of the Red5 Open Source, we appreciate the power that the developer community holds and how valuable and effective they can be.

As such, we are very excited about our recent acceptance into the SRT Alliance. SRT is an open-source video transport protocol and technology stack that optimizes streaming performance across unpredictable networks with secure streams and easy firewall traversal, bringing the best quality live video over the worst networks. The SRT Open Source project, driven by the SRT Alliance, is a collaborative community of industry leaders and developers striving to achieve lower latency internet video transport by continuously improving open-source SRT.

Basically, SRT is a protocol for ingesting streams. Like WebRTC, SRT is also built with UDP but SRT is a little more simple than WebRTC. It also has error correction built into it as well. This effective combination seeks to lower video latency while improving quality. We are proud to continue to support the Open Source Community and know that by working together, we can continue to improve upon real-time live streaming for everyone.

If you have your own collaborative projects, let us know how we can help. Please send an email to or schedule a call. We would love to hear from you!
