The State of Streaming Protocols - November 2014

WMSPanel team continues analyzing the state of streaming protocols. November showed a lot of views which means more of interesting content to look at.

We expectantly see the increase of HLS share (it's 69% now). The share of RTMP (23%) remains the same while RTSP (4.5%) has decreased. MPEG-DASH is showing a growth still having less than 1% overall.

All these metrics calculations are based on 1.88 billion views.

You can compare that with October stats below.

These stats are collected from more than 1200 media servers, including Wowza Streaming Engine (mostly 3.x and 4.x flavors), Nimble Streamer, Red5, nginx-rtmp-module and Flussonic which we recently introduced support for.

We'll keep analyzing protocols to see the dynamics.

This report is brought to you by WMSPanel team.


  1. Can you do stats about protocols percentage per device type? (web, smartphone, tab, smartTV...)

  2. Great idea Peter ! I'll implement something like that


If you face any specific issue or want to ask some question to our team,

This will give much faster and precise response.
