Getting Started: Streaming Options

Live streaming begins with the ingest stream - the stream delivered from your camera to our network. Once the stream is on the HDOnTap network, it can be delivered to unlimited concurrent viewers around the globe! Let's explore the options you have in the type of stream you are sharing with the world:


Standard live streaming

Standard live streaming delivers the ingest stream at one resolution to all viewers. This is a cost-effective solution, and ensures your live stream will always be delivered at the resolution you desire.


  • Standard live streaming may cause buffering for viewers on slower internet connections. To ensure your viewers have a buffer-free experience, consider Adaptive Bitrate Live Streaming.

Not all devices or network speeds are the same! Automatically deliver the best quality stream to any device with HDOnTap’s Adaptive Streaming Service. We pull a single, high quality live stream, transcode it within our streaming cloud to multiple resolutions, then deliver the appropriate stream to the device, adaptively switching on the fly as network speeds change.


  • Adaptive streaming provides a better viewing experience for viewers on mobile devices by providing the best quality stream for their available bandwidth.
