The videos are running fine on the client machines, but they are still drifting out of sync. As per your last posts I have encoded the videos using MJPEG encoders. First of I tried the PIC Video MJPEG3 codec, and then the LEAD MCMP/MJPEG codec’s, both of these where trial copies. Should I be using the MJPEG2000 codec?
I’m rendering from after effects and the key frame box is greyed out, is this because I’m using a trial?
My test clip is a simple counter running for 40 seconds rendered at 1024 x 768 at 25 frames per second. The LEAD settings where at 90% quality, data limited to 500kb per second.
Could you recommend some settings that I can exactly replicate that I could test my system with? Are my videos to high a resolution? Are there already made test clips I can run to test my system?
Maybe you can try a lower res like Pal (720x576), and ckeck all network settings (UDP broadcasting). First start the server only, play the file, then start one or two clients, and see if they are starting at the correct frame. For me it’s working fine with the lead codec. If you’re using wifi, try with wired network.
