GStreamer now implements a large number of different ways to GStreamer audio & video over a network. Just to name a few, there are RTSP, SRT, RIST, WebRTC, HLS, DASH, AES67, SmoothStreaming, RTMP! Depending on the use-case, these protocols have different upsides and downsides. To create a successful project, one needs to select the best suited technology.
