video calls

Post by granny1 » Fri Apr 09, 2010 5:15 pm

Hi,
My setup is as follows;
HSPA using E169 with a Billion Wireless G Voip ADSL Router.
I was wondering if anyone else is using a similar setup and doing Video calls using Logiteh Vid, if so, how do you keer the connection solid.
Thank you
Regards Granny

Are you holding a solid audio connection as well?
If so, you might wish to reduce the framerate or video quality, so that it doesn't require as much bandwidth for video.

Hi granny1 my Mum has been using Skype with HSPA and she has about 8 out of 10 success rate, sometimes the video goes a bit wobbly if it is peak time (ie a lot of mobile network congestion). Try moving the HSPA around and see if it helps get a better reception.
Mum gets better reception in the front room than the middle of the house. You could also try hooking the HSPA direct to your computer, just to rule out the router, or use a LAN connection to rule out the wireless side of your router.
Also as Jason suggests, I have reduced the image resolution (picture size) to lower the data needs.
