RTP vs UDP
- For a more reliable stream with possibly higher latency, use RTP
- For a lower latency stream with possibly less reliability, use UDP
When setting up a multicast stream, remember these details:
The valid multicast IP range is 126.96.36.199 - 188.8.131.52
This is the address the encoder will be streaming to. When setting up a decoder, it will also pull from this IP.
The valid port range is 1000 - 65000
Ensure the chosen port is unused. Port conflicts often cause stream stability issues.
- The valid TTL range is 1 - 255
- See the Wikipedia article on TTL.
