My machine is a i5 with 16GB memory, SSD's etc. When I am streaming over the internet, it pauses every 15 seconds. Both ends of the pipe have very reliable and very fast high speed connections (15Mbps+). While streaming, I have noticed that avconv will run heavy for about 2 seconds, then stop for 15 seconds. It wont start back up until the playback has been interrupted. If avconv would run more consistently, then this would probably not be a problem. I have pass thru h.264 checked. Using live conversion.

What could be causing this? It didn't used to be this way.

Hi,

av conv is throttled down when the client requests are not coming fast enough. Does the same happen without H264 passthrough?

I believe so, as checking that option was an attempt to address the problem, but I will have to check.

Check that... no, it doesn't do it with the pass thru disabled. Same source.

Hi,

h264 passthrough preserves the original video stream, which might have bitrate that is way too high for external WiFi / 3G to handle.
