    Streaming Speed go up and down

    amatzia

      Hello ,

       

      i've purchesed Slingbox 350 and using it with 3Mbps Upload and on the other side 30mb download.

      the problem is that the video quality is not so good and there are alot of up \ down with the speed ... it to from 600Kbps to 3000Kbps and down

      which gives me very unstable connection , when transfering a regular file between the two point speed is steady on 3000Kbps

       

      another question - when using web player is the stream going directly from point to point or it is going through SlingBox Servers

      my to points are used at the same town and with the same internet provider so there are not many hops on the way,

       

      Tnx.

          Your speed of 3 MBPS upload at the location of your 350 should be adequate to deliver the video and audio in a stable fashion.   You might want to check the instructions that came with your router to see if has any options or settings about providing priority to video streaming -- "Quality of Service" issues and the like.

           

          Your video signal will travel from your 350, to your router, to your modem and out to whatever network server your Internet Service Provider that you use for the LAN in which your 350 is located, then across the Internet to the network server for the Internet Service Provider that provides internet service to whatever modem/router combination are providing internet service to the device where you are watching the video stream.   So, being in the same town probably has very little effect.   If you and your 350 were located on different continents, then the situation might be different, but not necessarily so.
