Re: Issue/Detection WIFI Strength/Max Limits

When handling a wifi connection, the CPU needs to do more work than when handling an Ethernet connection. So in situations where large amounts of CPU resources are also needed to handle the stream (high bitrates, small packet sizes in the container, etc), there may be videos whose playback consumes too much CPU resources on wifi but can still be played on a wired connection. This is independent of signal strength or network bandwidth. Unfortunately there's not much that can be done other than choosing a less CPU-intensive encoding.

Re: Issue/Detection WIFI Strength/Max Limits


Thanks. Does ROKU have any test data or for what they would say NOT to run a HLS stream on wireless above ....being that is currently a fixed video/audio codec, im sure some testing may have been done. Bad networks will be bad networks, but i just need to know what bitrate is maximum for the ROKU
