 Playing a video stream from the server in a browser via MSE

The MSE technology can be used when you only need to play a stream on the page and there are no strict requirements to latency

Media Source Extensions (MSE) is a browser API that allows playing audio and video using the corresponding HTML5 tags <audio> and <video>. While WebRTC is intended for both playing and publishing streams in real time, MSE is for playing only.

MSE is not supported in iOS Safari on iPhone devices.
