Reduce live streaming latency for Azure Media Services live streaming
AMS is great, but it's intended for one-to-many applications.
I need to create a one-to-one (single way) stream application, with very low latency (~2 seconds).
But, at this right moment, only adaptative protocols are used to output the stream, so it is not possible.
If you could integrate RTMP output stream and reduce the latency, would be wonderful
We recently added a Low Latency option on our v3 Live Event API to bring latency down to 8-10 seconds e2e.
See the blog post here – https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/what-s-new-in-azure-media-services-video-processing/
We will begin work next on Ultra Low Latency ( and CMAF low latency) which is targeted at 2s range, but keep in mind tha latencies down at that level do not scale well to large audiences with high stability at the client side. Client side still needs to maintain about a 1 second buffer for the stream to stay stable.

Great work, thank you! Looking forward to CMAF support, we looked at third party players with this but the licensing fees are out of reach for small companies.
This seems to be a common theme.
