Adaptive Bitrate Streaming

Adaptive bitrate streaming (ABS) is a method of video streaming where the source content is encoded at multiple bit rates (low, medium and high), then each of the different bit rate streams are segmented into small multi-second parts. The media player embedded in the site where the viewer watches the stream will automatically select the stream level that the viewer’s internet connection can cope with.

Decent enough connection

Technology has moved in leaps and bounds and the world is better connected then ever before however there is a minimum connection requirement to be able to watch an uninterrupted live stream. All streams are delivered via an adaptive bitrate streaming so to be able to connect to the lowest bit rate a viewer will need a minimum connection of 600kbps (0.6Mbps).
