Property values

Type: boolean


When set to true, low-latency playback will be enabled on the media element. Low-latency playback is useful in communication and some gaming scenarios, but is more demanding on power consumption and less reliable for smooth media playback.

You must set the msRealTime before setting the src property in code.

msRealTime should not be used in non-real-time or non-communication scenarios, such as audio and/or video playback, as this can affects playback startup latency of audio and video playback.
