Enhanced live classroom experience at scale with the WebRTC-HLS stack

What's this blog post about?

Live classrooms have become prevalent in education, but network issues can hinder the experience for students in countries like India. WebRTC is commonly used for live video communication, offering low latency but compromising on video quality. HLS, on the other hand, provides high-quality video with higher latency. 100ms combines both technologies to create a seamless live classroom experience by using WebRTC for real-time interaction and HLS for high-quality streaming. This approach allows students to transition between being passive viewers and active participants in near real-time, improving the overall learning experience.
