Jai Sai Master !

Dear Sai bandhus,

We have been getting quite a suggestions that they streaming has not been proper for the last 3 times.

Firstly, we would like to know how the streaming is at your end. Are you getting blurred pictures or the audio stream breaking. When the audio stream is breaking, is the video stream also breaking? What kind of internet connection is being used  3g dongle, 256 kbps, 512 kbps, 1 Mbps and above ?

While we are streaming, we are also viewing our own stream (that is the only way we can actually be a part of the social stream - chat features in ustream). And we do not experience the problems being stated by other users. The video frame rate does dwindle a bit and certainly there is lag between what is going on and what appears in the stream (roughly 30 seconds or more). However the streaming is no ways affecting the overall experience.

We have at our end 1.5 Mbps broadband wired connection. We can also stream wirelessly, but that did create some problems (during the release of Sai Satcharitra - we were getting disconnected).

Those who are having similar broadband connections report to have no problems whatsoever at their end.

So it makes us think that probably the internet speed at the other end is what is creating problems. As far as we can understand, since we stream the content to Ustream.tv and it takes care of the rest, it should downgrade the quality to those who are on lower bandwidths.

So sincerely, we feel that there is nothing at our end which needs to be rectified. Those who are in US ( and we suppose that they do have better internet speeds) please do let us know if you too are facing streaming issues.

Let us know if there is something that can be done, so that we can better the streaming next time around.

By the way, the event went of really well. We have entered a very momentous period of our existence. It is real blessing to be able to participate in this "Krutagnata Mahotsavam".

Jai Sai Master !

Jai Sai Master!

I live in US. And for the last two times the video and audio were both stuck at the same time and it happened every 10 - 20 seconds. I could listen to some words (may be 5 - 10 words) of Ammagaru and it used to get stuck. It used to work great last year when Datta Jayanthi celebrations were broadcasted.

Jai Sai Master!

Unlike the last time(audio is too bad, little ok with video) I did not face any problem with streaming this time....audio and video both are so clear.

We are using High Speed internet connection with 12 Mbps broadband wireless connection.

Jai Sai Master!

I had been trying to view all the recent broadcasts at office & at home.
In my Kuwait office, it is the intranet and I admit there are issues with the internet speed because of the over 6000 connections.
At home I use 1 MBPS DHL connection.
I observed that a picture comes,one two words i hear and it breaks; although channel is live.
Next time I will see at home and give my feedback , if the timing matches.

JAI SAI MASTER!!

Jai Sai Master, Babu garu..
Jai Sai Master, Sai Bandhus..

Dearest SaiMaster Forums Team, Jai Sai Master!

The only thing I can share is this.

I Am in Canada. I haven't had a chance to see the last 3 times but before that, one of the events, I was able to see no problem both wired and wireless. One of the reasons could be that I have a 25 mbps at that time plus it was a week day.

Based on my experience, even here in Canada/USA, a lot of factors depend on clean streaming. I currently have 50 mbps but I hardly get 30 mbps wireless. Plus I'm in an apartment building which means I am sharing the cable line with 150 other apartments.

So, you are right. I am guessing it will be from our side that sometimes the speed takes a hit. We should also remember that upload speed bandwidth is always 80 to 90% less than download bandwidth.

Apart from all these, the streaming server that you use could well use their servers from various countries which again means "high" & "low" times.

Hope this information helps.

Best Regards,
Jai Sai Master!

Jai Sai Master !

Dear Sai Bandhus,

Thanks for your feed back !!

But as you might have guessed even among those who have good internet speeds there is inconsistency in the streaming! We dont have ADSL, Ananth garu, so our uploads and downloads pretty much match up!!

Just to make matters clear.

The streaming on October 10th and on October 24th, we faced some technical difficulties. On 24th, we were getting extremely bad internet speeds (wireless connection was getting disconnected frequently) and we could not do much about it during the time period of broadcasting. On 10th we did recieve positive feedbacks, although during the starting of the function we did change from wired to wireless and that might have affected the stream.

Secondly, earlier we were doing broadcast using Sony Camcorders (in USB Stream mode). Having a camcorder is much better than webcam (because the control over zooming etc.) Also web cams are extremely widescreen and need to be placed pretty close to the subject. However such camcorders are now history, they are not even available. Most importantly they only work with Windows XP which is now a bit rare to find. Also the bit rates are also on the lower end, and so the stream quality, which you all must have seen was not great. However the audio was superb.

So we decided to upgrade the broadcast technology and got a device known as Live Shell. It connects the HD cams (HDMI interface) and allows us to stream directly on ustream.tv and other such sites, without the need of a computers. HDMI interface allows video and audio to be sent over a HDMI cable and this is directly fed to UStream.tv. We should get around 480p quality through this, which is far cry from what we were getting earlier (VGA quality).

However somehow, audio which is supposed to take much less bandwidth is worse than video - which is a bit strange. But at our end, we are getting no problems whatsoever.

Hmmm, for a profession service like Ustream.tv, this should not happen. And definitely not three times in a row! We dont have our own streaming server, we broadcast it directly to ustream.tv which does multicasting to everybody else. So probably this should not be an issue.

Ustream.tv also gives the option of recording our own stream. And in those video clips we dont experience any such streaming issues. This probably means that our stream is reaching UStream.tv perfectly. So it is a problem from their end onwards.

Jai Sai Master !
