painful latency

Post by gvirtual »

Does it exist a way to tweak steamcast to educe the streaming latency?

Using shoutcast dnas 1.9.8 to send audio to wowza at 32kbps AAC+, I get max 10 seconds of delay from my source audio to my rtmp player, to rtsp player I get it max 4 seconds.

Connecting a player direct to steamcast server I get 20+ seconds of latency, using same player with shoutcast I get around 10 seconds again, and using icecast (kh variant, tweaked), I get 2 seconds

At 32kbps the latency is most likely due to the buffer. Steamcast currently has a hardcoded buffer size. This will be adjustable in future versions.
