Reasonable Delay Between Real Events and Viewed on Internet


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft NetShow version 2.0


The following section discusses what is a reasonable delay to be expected between real events and the picture received by people over the Internet.


Normally the delay is between 5 and 30 seconds. The length of this delay depends on the following:

  • Your advanced settings
  • The codec choice
  • The capabilities of the encoding hardware

These options are controlled in the advanced video codec settings.

The Data Window setting and Quality setting will have the most effect on the delay. The Data Window is optimal for MPEG4 video codec when it is set to 5.
