RLC Slow

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I'm new here but have been a member of RLC for a while now. Over the past few weeks i've been having issues with the site being slow and error messages on the video player. Has anyone else experienced this?

 

Cheers

Anyone else got slow streaming today? On most active cams I get sound but video is black although I can see the white id-number in left bottom corner. And if I get stream, it's cutting. Cams with low traffic are ok. So I guess it's on rlc side.

I'm finding that a lot of the replay videos from the last 24 hours have a lot of skips and jumps in them.  The one currently up of Nelly and Bogdan is practically unwatchable....and it looked super HOT~!

RLC has definitely been running slower than usual on popular cameras.

Tonight, Sat 15th September 10.30 pm UK time I have waited 7 minutes so far for the most popular cam at the moment GP3.2 to appear.   I have the black screen with 3 dots instead.

Unwatchable.

Tech department recommends a speed of 5 Mbts or better for comfortable viewing.

Where I live I don't have that.    

I did make the point that even when my connection speeds are slow other sites and most of the cameras still behave acceptably.    If it was my speed that causes the extra slowness would not the display on my system of all of the cameras be affected equally?

It is the most popular cameras that become impossible to watch.     This suggests to me that it is the feed from the most popular cameras at the most popular times that is slow.     

Tech response suggests one of:

             I don't understand either the problem or their suggestion properly

             at times the feed from the most popular cams is slowed by lack of bandwidth but they have not got a solution at the moment

             they don't give a rat's arse

Each Apartment likely has an Certain Allotment of Bandwidth.  When that Allotment is Exceeded then the Apartment Feed becomes a Buffering Issue for everyone trying to view it.

RLC is not the only site with buffering issues. Most of the other Voyeur Sites have the same issues.

Thanks StnCld.   Now I know I'm out of my depth!

I'm sure if they could give us a better feed on those popular occasions they would.    For those of us in Mbits poverty regular interruption on the most viewable occasions is a turn-off.

RLC have been great at giving us more cameras, 1020p etc. but maybe there was a trade-off.

The higher the Pixels the more Bandwidth is consumed.  720p or 1080p most users can't actually tell a difference between the Two on a Standard Computer Monitor.  I believe RLC uses 1080p but if they took it back to 720p it would make a big difference on the Bandwidth with less buffering.

For me the only apartment that seems to be struggling regularly is B4, especially between 20:00 and 22:00 local time. But it is the apartment with the most (37) cameras.

Yes, RLC upgraded most of it's cameras to 1080p in 2017. Some 720p cameras still remain, mostly hallway and balcony cams (Eva, Adeline) and Desiree's bathroom.

The bandwidth is not only affected by the picture quality, but also by what's happening in front of the camera. In normal daylight, full color on a 1080p camera, the stream I receive is on average somewhere between 70 and 80 KB/s in an empty room. With a lot of motion close to the camera (mostly notable on the camera at B2 and B4 at the foot of the beds in the big bedrooms) I get incoming streams of well over 1MB/s, with peaks up to 2MB/s. Imagine what that does to the upstream from B4, when seven girls start walking around in front of the cameras in multiple rooms, with multiple cameras each.
