Slow Internet Speeds caused a few problems for the Opening Night program stream from MELfeed.video on November 22nd, 2017.
The broadcast had a number of dropouts during the stream, but we found that it was a result of trying to push too much data down a small pipe! We were using a 4G modem, that we now discover has been speed limited as a result of our efforts to stream over it.
When MELfeed Video returns, it will be at a reduced video and audio quality level, to match what we can get out over the reduced speed modems.
We are yet to get the NBN in our area, but that may or may not be the answer to our problems in future, as, of course, people have been having mixed experiences with the new network.
We will run with the reduced quality streams, and provide details of where to find a higher quality version in our program guides and YouTube descriptions when we can.
