Adaptive streaming helps to optimize the stream performance in end-user's browser.
Adaptive streaming is a default feature.
To get the full benefits of the feature send us the highest quality stream or video so we would be able to split it into several ones with different bitrates.
How adaptive streaming works
1. We create a manifest with embedded streams with different resolutions and bitrates.
2. A player in end-user's browser is constantly analyzing available bandwidth, player window size, display resolution, and processor performance.
3. Based on the parameters our player adjusts the quality of the stream.
For example, If the end-users have a slow connection they will receive a stream with a low bitrate.
