Arrow Constant breaks in sound/video.
Arrow The player is not buffering properly.

During the last match the player UI was showing 0 buffer (buffer time is same as stream time). During filler the buffer is approx 30-50 seconds but the player is still pausing to buffer. Now that the match (CO2 v The Ronin) has started the buffer is back to 0 seconds and constant breaks, though still pauses even if it manages to buffer a few seconds.

IMO... BitGravity is teh suck. Sad

Arrow HD Stream
Arrow East Coast U.S.
Arrow 32 Mbit/sec cable on under-utilized loop

Good Luck with the tech issues and thanks for the effort put into the tournies.

with 10k viewers and allot of stuttering im coming to the conclusion that bitgravity can probably server 7-8k people well
dunno what percentage of that is actualy HD

Well I can't watch it there are far to many breaks in the video and sound. Constant (Buffering Stream) and it's really annoying.

Thanks for trying though.

I'm about to stop watching and wait for the youtube replays.

HD Stream I've noticed is what, around 20fps? Far too low to be even worth broadcasting imo, should turn off the HD feed and utilize that bandwidth for the SD feed so maybe even that will not be so laggy.

Watching PRTG, the HD stream it's utilizing anywhere from 150KB/s - 250KB/s whereas the SD stream is much more stable around 70KB/s - 130KB/s so given that both feeds are relatively undemanding if you're feeding from CCP's building to a feed distribution server, this is rather bad. =(



That said though, the HD stream is sexy looking and I must thank you for trying to bring it to us. \o/



-EDIT-


Did you guys turn up the resolution on the SD stream compared to prior years? It seems much clearer when fullscreened to 1600x1200, the text is actually readable and wasn't last year, can even read warp scram messages before they disappear now.

How funny, I was out of the room for five minutes and came back to hear Crovan talking about a match but the video on the panel, and the video was moving. I waited and it took 90 seconds before the video changed to the match!

I really want to see more things shown to get to know better what is going on.
For example it would be great to see who is jamming who. Or repairs that are turned on.
Would be easy to display as lines from one to another ship in the overview? If that looks too ugly, at least display the effects that are on ships. Otherwise it is really just watching health bars and that is boring :(

Also as for camera perspective it would be great to do an overview of the battlefield more often - maybe with a centered tactical map turned on?

HD Stream Adjustments?? Shocked
You rock! Thanks for staying on top of this. The SD is pretty good. Still the occasional break to buffer, but otherwise good.

Again, Thanks for the effort. Cool

1.5mb/s ADSL in Sydney/Aust - rebuffering occasionally on low qual stream. Had no issues last year and IIRC the quality was better. I'm with Internode, a good isp that rarely has bandwidth issues and it's 3:30am so unlikely to be peak.

I daren't run Eve simultaneously and I even included a 127.0.0.1 entry for twitter.com in my hosts to knock out that twitter bar thing! Just in case :) Looks like this is great for your US players, kinda suck for international players perhaps. Back to bed for me.

Im geting a fair bit of buffering even on the SD stream. The audio will often continue longer then the video. If I click it stop for 10 seconds but then I will get video back.

Most unwatchable tournament ever, no use with that shiney HD when you get annoying BUFFERING messages every other second... even if sometimes it goes up to 20-30 seconds in detween sometimes, thats enough for it to ruin the whole experience.

same problem with the SD stream.

If in some way this is a problem on my end i apologize, however i hade more than enough bandwidth to recieve that kind of stream.

SD stream is ususally doable, but the HD stream is constantly buffering all the time here (5Mbit ADSL), not viewable at all, keep breaking up all the time...

SD is buffering constantly as well now :'(

Last year was MUCH better!

Take a short breather after the current match and fix this so we can actually enjoy the rest of the tournament

Consistent occasional buffering all weekend, barely listenable now with all the skipping. SD stream isn't any better.

We are working on this at the moment.

We have a slightly newer version of the flash player on the website now, which should fix up the video freezing if it needs to reconnect the stream. So if you refresh the page and right click the player, you should see "dev5" in the bitgravity player version.

Seems like now it's impossible to get the stream even "connected"... stays put at the "Connecting" part.
