StreamLink supports five RTTP connection types, but not all connection types are supported by each platform on which StreamLink runs.
- Connection types
The table below lists the RTTP connection types supported by StreamLink. For the precise connection types supported by each platform, see the sections that follow.

|5||Forever Frame||Open HTTP/1.1 connection hosted in an IFRAME element.|
