The length of the segments to divide the video into. The HTTP server sends the video segments to the media player over HTTP.

Smaller segments result in a lower latency (the time between opening the video in the media player and playback beginning); however, smaller segments require a fast and reliable connection because each segment must download in a shorter period of time.
