You will find the right answers in this blog post. Therefore, without further ado, let’s discuss what you need to arm your live streaming service for success in 2023.
Global Reach & Zero Glitches
Buffering, you say? Lagging? It’s inexcusable in 2023! It’s an issue that can significantly affect user satisfaction and, ultimately, lead to a higher churn rate for any platform. For example, imagine an avid football enthusiast is excited to stream his favorite match from a popular online streaming platform. He settles in with the beer, clicks play, and waits. However, the video starts buffering, disrupting his match experience.
At that point, frustration sets in as he watches his favorite team stutter on the screen, hindering the flow of the match in its entirety. The lagging delays make the whole experience impossible. This issue not only affects individual users but also poses a threat to live streaming platforms aiming to retain audiences and keep them engaged in the process.
If you want to truly conquer the live streaming industry, you need to be the streamer everyone turns to, known for the impeccable and reliable quality of the stream. In the live streaming game you need to ensure that audiences can cheer and celebrate without any disruptions whatsoever.

The Power of P2P
Delivering top-notch live video content to a massive audience is no joke. But, wait a minute, you don’t think that shelling out another chunk of big bucks for extra servers and bandwidth would do the trick, right?
When you want to build a growing online streaming platform with an increasing number of users enjoying your content, and as your platform gains popularity, you may start encountering overloaded servers and slow content delivery. As more users join your platform and stream videos, the servers may struggle to handle the escalating video requests. As viewers are forced to endure long loading times and interruptions, the frustration builds, dampening their enthusiasm for the new streaming platform.
The strain on your servers leads to increased operational costs, which can then lead to a reactive approach that only provides you with a temporary fix, and when you realize that it’s not a sustainable solution for long-term growth, it would be already too late. Built on top of WebRTC, our P2P server transforms each user’s device into a file server and client, sharing content directly between peers without trouble!
