Re: twitch.tv lag

Hey mate,
Twitch Services use a Protocol known as RTPM which used port 1925 and is delivered by a Streaming server much like Red5.
Try Forwarding that port as a first point of call.
I used to get twitch lag at 1080+ watching sc2 streams

Re: twitch.tv lag

Personally I wouldn't use a DMZ, It might be wiser for you to use Port triggering, if you  are like me you don't watch streams on just one system.

Re: twitch.tv lag

I'm watching that stream at the moment (although it appears to be between games) and it's working fine from here, can you let us know what speeds you get once you've reconnected?
If they remain low can you open a fault ticket at https://faults.plus.net

Re: twitch.tv lag

Hi 4 attempts and got a Good gateway You are currently connected to gateway ptn-ag02.

Seems to be fixed after hopping, it also happen only in evening very annoying
I think its related to the late night latency problem.
Any other time of day i get my max 74Mbps

Re: twitch.tv lag

The fact that you're still only getting 24Mb out of 74Mb tells me something is wrong, as you've hopped gateway and this is the best you've got, I'd suggest opening a fault ticket. If Chris Pettit spots this thread he might be able to get someone to look at it.

Re: twitch.tv lag

Yep, that sounds like congestion somewhere (possibly exchange, SVLAN or somewhere else)
