RTMP

RTMP only works with native clients like VLC/mplayer or flash. They contain a h.264 stream and there is one stream per available resolution/quality which have to be switch manually if needed. This one of the stream types with lower latency. In the CCH you can expect around 15 seconds.

The player on the website falls back to rtmp and therefore flash if nothing else works.
