I’m not sure of the VLC method, but I do know that you can get a stream with only a second or two of delay via rtmp and hosting a web server that has a player that is compatible and automatically has the stream playing, however it’s been like two years and I don’t remember what the video player was. It’s definitely possible though.
Is this still true? RTMP from my understanding is h.264 specifically which Tower no longer supports (they switched from using the Steam browser to the browser built into Unreal). The Unreal browser does support webm though, but the streaming options for this are pretty annoying and limited especially since the Unreal browser also does not support webrtc.
I remember doing this a while back, its possible but fiddly. Dont remember exact method but i remember it involved streaming from the source device to a
some kind of livestream server running on a vps, and then host a webpage from there with a player on it.
