I find when I stream out to some services like YouTube and Eventive, even though I’ve entered an amount in the ‘data rate’ field, the server (if that’s the right word) that’s receiving the RTMP data will throttle it down and reduce the frame rate when I have a still image onscreen, “thinking” I’m sending more data than is necessary. I can see the graph in mimoLive show the drop, and also the numbers. Then, when I cut back to moving image there’s not enough data/frames and it takes the receiving server several seconds or more to “realize” I’m back on a moving image and readjust the data and frame rate back up.
Is there any way to set a minimum in mimoLive so that the data rate does not drop below a certain amount, regardless of what YouTube’s or Eventive’s system perceives what I’m doing?
I show silent movies (with live music) on my streams, and as you can imagine this happens on most of my shows. (Except for Vimeo…for some reason Vimeo’s system is much better about this.)
