Please add SRT (Secure Reliable Transport) support for ingress traffic. https://github.com/Haivision/srt
It's stupid Twitch still hasn't done anything about SRT (and AV1). For those who don't know SRT is probably the most reliable streaming protocol today. It can recover from 15% packet loss with the right configuration with no degradation in audio/video quality.
SRT is already widely used in the broadcast industry in OB Vans where internet signals (satellite/5G) can be spotty.
There's also a lot of people nowadays on Twitch streaming from their cellphones in all kinds of places where good internet connection is not a guarantee. SRT is literally made for these uses cases.
Plus it has encryption with no added latency.
I know Twitch can't stream SRT to viewers but this part is OK because Twitch has a massive reliable CDN behind them to take care of this, the important part is the Streamer->Twitch and RTMP just isn't reliable enough for IRL streamers.
SRT would make IRL streaming feasible for more people, and improve the viewer experience by having more reliable, higher quality streams. The implementation of SRT support is an important step in future-proofing Twitch, in particular in light of the more fierce competition. Also, H.265 ingest should be considered when implementing SRT support, as they complement each other.
This will help with multiple audio streams we want to do
To make IRL streaming more accessible (aka removing the requirement for a "streaming backpack" that has 4g bonding), Support the SRT protocol natively to counter packet loss for unstable networks such as 4g.
cant vote but please add srt support fot twitch, i have packet loss and i want to stream
Can't vote either, but I'm in support of this.
Agreed, this should be supported. Especially after Mixer closed down, there hasn't been another site with a low-latency protocol like this. It's why I gave up streaming after they shut down, instead of moving to Twitch, as Twitch's latency is atrocious, even in "low latency" mode.
Also, why the hell can't I vote for this? It's greyed out.
