The publication service helps you send video output to a remote station. It is a virtual broadcast to deliver a live video to many or single destinations.
Default In this case we use the HLS stream of the channel and push it to the desired destination. Latency: What the user has set (min. 10-30 sec.)
Take the stream from the RTMP server if the channel is enabled as shown in "2. Channel Edit > Processing & Control". Latency: 1-2 sec.
As for RTMP. Latency: <1 sec.
An active user account on the external video streaming service is a prerequisite for using Publication Services.
Instructions for the settings of the target services can be found on the target platform. Keywords for research are: "External RTMP" or " External HLS".
