We're currently trying to develop a video streaming/screen sharing platform similar to twitch.tv/omnovia.com/etc/etc.
The issue we're having is bandwidth, which we figured would be a hurdle early on, but something else has come up .
Twitch.tv, as I'm sure plenty of folks are aware, uses video streaming. Which we can easily do.
However, Omnovia is using some kind of static image stream, where it updates each pixel as it changes, rather than a streaming video.
Which allows them to use significantly less bandwidth, and stream much more higher quality images than video.
Does anyone know what technology is omnovia using to do this ?
Our dev team is unsure of what they're using, and understandably, omnovia wont enlighten me since they're selling a service ofc.
Anyone have any ideas on what protocol is being used ?
