COMPARISON

Agora vs Mux

How do Agora and Mux compare? And what does Dyte Video SDK offer?

Overview

Agora and Mux are options to consider when integrating real-time experiences in your apps. When compared to Agora, Mux is a newer player in the market. Mux offers better API support and documentation, but Agora can handle legacy use cases better since it has been around for longer.

But neither offers smart bandwidth switching to improve the user experience or provides out-of-the-box interactive features.

Dyte changes that. Dyte offers live video calling, voice calling, live streaming, collaborative features, and more in a single, lightweight SDK.

This page pits Mux vs Agora's and explains why Dyte is perfect for your use case.

LIVE VIDEO SERVICES

So what are these?

What is Mux?

Mux Video SDK is the perfect solution for developers seeking to incorporate video streaming into their applications. The SDK is designed to handle all the technical aspects of video streaming, freeing up your time to focus on building engaging features for your users.

What is Agora?

Agora’s Video SDK aims to make creating live video calls and live streams inside applications easier. The SDK is very low-level in nature that allows very large enterprise development teams to create custom solutions and control every aspect of the live experience.
