Back in the lab

Today I'm back in the lab over in Moorestown to resume my streaming video testing.

When I left here on Friday I had five MPEG-2 streams running through our Blonder-Tongue MegaPort Gateway. When I came in they were all dead. I was able to login to the MPG and everything looked OK, but when I tried to start a stream it died within a couple of minutes. So, I rebooted the MPG and tried again. This time the video stayed up for a few minutes then tanked. I'm not yet sure if the problem is with the BT or the nCube server. Either way, I don't think trying to stream video over the BTs is going to be a vialbe solution, with the low number of simultaneous streams it can handle.
