Low-latency streaming at scale

Cloudflare Stream automatically delivers low-latency video at the ideal resolution, across a variety of connections, devices, and platforms.

Developer-friendly video API

Fast, reliable, and consistent video delivery thanks to single-pass traffic routing and inspection across our global network.

Transparent pricing on one platform

Unlike traditional video CDNs, Stream is billed by minutes watched instead of total bytes transferred. Never pay for ingress, compute, or egress.


Live streaming powered by a global platform and network

Cloudflare delivers video streaming — and other developer tools — on a single connectivity cloud:

  • Run your video streaming on a global network that spans over 320 global cities, and sits within milliseconds of 95% of Internet users
  • Stream automatically handles video codecs, protocols, and adaptive bitrate streaming for you
  • Build live reactions, chats, and Q&As into video with the Cloudflare Developer Platform
  • Track details of viewer counts and viewing patterns to help plan your next live stream

Applied Systems wanted to deliver excellent multimedia experiences without suffering from unreliable network performance in Mexico and broader Latin America.

They use Cloudflare Stream to power all of their live streaming. Now, their customers get fast, reliable live video, and their developers spend less time maintaining their video platform.

“With Cloudflare Stream, our users see every live event with the lowest latency possible. There are no synchronization issues updating the odds, and they will never miss a bet or hear their neighbors cheering before they see the touchdown”
