Third-Party Live Feed – How to add third-party live stream to websites and apps using Muvi Live 05 August 2021

 

Live streaming technology is constantly evolving with substantial development in streaming technologies. Creation and sharing of live streams has become more accessible than ever, more so with the rise in the popularity of video-sharing across different platforms. This also implies that more people are now sharing live and using on-demand videos regularly. 

Taking an industry agnostic standpoint, it becomes increasingly crucial for all corporations to understand how live streams can be helpful to them. By doing this,  they can not only help drive more website traffic, but also gain more exposure to their content. But many people, especially who aren’t very familiar with the programming, deter themselves from trying it out thinking about the complexity of coding and  embedding the live streams onto their website and apps. Now, one can easily opt for a third party engagement to do the hard work for you. We suggest choosing the best live streaming platform where you can host a third-party live feed with zero coding knowledge.

Live streams that generally run on basic HLS, or RTSP feeds, will lack the professional quality of the live streaming of IP camera feeds, and free to air channels will be of low quality if you are not utilizing an enterprise grade live streaming platform. As a result, it will affect the viewing experience for your end-users due to high latency and security challenges. Muvi Live enables you to live stream third-party live feeds in a simple and secure way. Let us dive into how to add a third-party live feed to your websites or apps and why you choose Muvi Live for third-party live feeds.
