Streaming BBC news
« on: March 21, 2012, 10:40:36 AM »
HI,

I am at present streaming BBC news on one of our screens, however, every 20-30 seconds it starts buffering for around 30 seconds. This is not a problem when streaming through the internet to a normal screen and is unique to magicinfo, this therefore suggests that it is the way it is streamed (as the same problem occurs on the magicinfo preview on the authoring software on the server). We are using Magicinfo-I standard 1006 on the server.

We are using a HTML page the body of which is contained in the next post. Does anybody know of a better way to do this, or is there another setting that I could change to overcome this problem?

Many thanks

Nick

This is all good stuff Nick. It has taught me few things. Do you think this is a Javascript and Flash issues?
