Hi, The butter: Streaming ogg over OpenVPN tunnels requires 200KBps+ while using SMB requires 50-100KBps
My computers at work have a bridged tunnel (using OpenVPN) to my home network, which is where my mt-daapd is hosted. Mt-daapd has no problem with streaming media to my work computers. But when I try to stream ogg files, I simply run out of bandwidth. I tried both Rythmbox and iTunes and they play two seconds of the song and then buffer for 10 seconds 🙁
So I tried to open the file (over the bridge tunnel) using smb and that worked flawlessly with as little as 40KBps bandwidth usage.
Sense the problem is only happening with ogg, I think it has something to do with how Firefly converts ogg to WAV.
fyi, I used the highest level of compression available in OpenVPN.
1- How can I turn off the internal conversion to WAV? I want everything to be streamed as is.
2- How can I fix the problem without turning off the internal conversion to WAV?
