@srgray thank you!
Do you know anybody who successfully streamed a conference (3+ hours) to PeerTube? We debugged our setup with the tchncs.de admin, turned out it was a PeerTube bug which capped our data quota for 5 GB. Little we can do to prepare for that next time, sans have recordings to upload later :S
@alxd I wish! The issue with pioneering something like this is you find the bugs.
Did PeerTube cap you or did tchncs.de have a cap on their particular instance? That'll direct you to where you need to take this issue.
Online panels like Solarise are going to be far more common, so PeerTube & instances are going to need to adapt to handle it.
Did you find out what caused the bandwidth-like issues in the earlier panels?
I really hope this gets figured out (and the solution shared widely)!
@srgray looks like tchncs.de had a cap they were not aware of - we'll need to make a bug report for FramaSoft.
The bandwidth-like issues seem to be literally what they look like: bandwidth problems. I don't know PeerTube's infra well enough to know if we could bypass that - maybe by having some delay with a buffer, streaming to a few servers at once?
Whatever we come up with, we'll share widely, but for now I cannot dedicate too much time to that.
