Subscriber Types

The following subscriber types / protocols are supported:

  • WebRTC (using WebSockets, WebRTC and the HTML5 video Element or HTML5 audio Element).
  • HLS (using the HTML5 Video/Audio Element)
  • RTMP is supported as well, but with the sunsetting of Flash player, there is no current RTMP option for web playback.

Additionally, the Red5 Pro WebRTC SDK allows for automatic detection and failover to determine the correct playback option to use based on desired order and browser support. To learn more, visit the Auto Failover section.
