Re: NBC Goofed up

said by Smith6612:

I know the Superbowl is kind of that once a year, 5 hour event, but I know they goofed up. I was watching the game on a very fast connection at the time in a location where traditional TV was not available. The connection was Gigabit, was testing at Gigabit and I was doing nothing more than 350Kbps to the Superbowl stream. It basically was a let-down since it looked like it was being encoded on a toaster and broadcasted on a farm of toasters.

If you kept it in small mode like that it's no shock that you weren't getting anything much faster. To get it's max speed which tops out at 3.5 Mbps you need to have it fullscreen.

Didn't make any difference whether I was in full screen or not. The bitrate refused to budge even after waiting several minutes. Even in that tiny window, because I use a DVI monitor at work (good 30" monitor), it is washed out and blurry at that bitrate.
