[jitsi-users] remote desktop too slow even on lan networks


#1

Ive used remote desktop with gmail accounts, witch ive read that is slow
due to the amount of commands that gmail allows..

I've also used iptel.org accounts, but its still very slow even on lan :frowning:

What type of accounts do you recommend to use to share desktop? or any way
for it to use more bandwidth when available and make it usable?

Thanks!

greets!

Hey aL,

Have you tried increasing 'Maximum allowed bandwidth (kBytes/s)' on
the 'More settings' tab of the Video page in Jitsi's
Preferences/Options dialog?

In the preferences of video i can see 100k by default but im seeing the the
bandwidth used by jitsi with nethogs, and i can see it barely uses <1k when
only sound and no moving the cursor and 5k~10k when i move the cursor
around in the screen... :S

I move files up to 100Mb between those 2 computers :S there is plenty of
room to send more if jitsi wanted to

I tried on 2 different lans with different routers and computers btw

The computers i use have debian, ubuntu and mint

thanks!

Are you sharing the whole screen or just a part of it? Do these two
differ for you with respect to perceived speed?

I tried both, and its the same

The screen takes a lot to refresh (from 5 to 10 secs) and when it finally
does, it starts from left to right very slow to update the screen (it takes
about 10 secs to refresh the whole screen)

The mouse clicks takes forever to do anything remotely.

The mouse pointer on the other side of the connection moves very choppy and
only respond to a few clicks (not all of them work)

It only uses up to ~12k of bandwidth when doing intensive stuff. Both
computers are quite capable regarding cpu and memory :frowning: (I tried 4
different computers with same results)

Thanks!

Hi,

I think that with iptel.org all your media packets are sent to iptel.org relay (even on LAN). If you see wireshark dump during a desktop streaming session you will know if your media packets will go from one computer to another or if they pass via external iptel.org server.

You may use jabber.org accounts (XMPP) for desktop streaming. IIRC they don't do bandwidth limitation like Gmail.

Or you can actually try http://jit.si ... since it 's out there :slight_smile:

Also, when you say it's slow, do you mean the image streaming or the
latency you experience after on clicks and types?

Lyubomir's suggestion for increasing the max allowed speed is also
definitely worth trying. Personally I'd start there.
