    Depending on what kind of implementation you're looking to achieve, it might be good to take a look at the GitHub page for SRT: there are a number of contributors to the project. I'm not sure but perhaps there is some guidance on getting consultation/support to be found there.

    SRT is worth looking at as an alternative, but it is not RTP.

    This project is pretty cool, I’ll tinker around with it tomorrow.

    As an aside, I’ve noticed you’re building out your own stream protocol stack (FTL/LightSpeed). What’s the reasoning there? Seems slightly inconvenient to have to “hack” OBS to make the output stream work. Will FTL support be merged into OBS in the future?

    If you’re just trying to avoid the latency of RTMP then I might suggest considering the existing SRT protocol[1]. It’s been open source for a while and is well-established(native support in OBS core and optional in FFMPEG). Seems to already solve a lot of the transport-level stuff that you’re working on with FTL.
