Higher timer before going up in quality on auto
My internet is not that bad, but it spikes alot, so i tend to watch on medium to high. But with this autosetting, when i dont have spikes for 15 seconds it gives Source quality and instantly after fist spikes it goes into buffer and sometimes it even loads ad after buffering
1) Limitation would be great idea, for system as it is now. (Maybe not necessary when this system will be fully working, setting UI feels pretty crowded now on 1366*768 resolution monitor).
2) From time to time it is not problem (for example youtube has working auto quality). But i don't know what parametrs are used to decide when switch quality. For example: If is every 15 seconds checked my bandwith and only on this decision is my quality raised, then it is troublesome for people with "laggy/spiky" network connection, because it can hit the high download speed moment. On the other side, if quality would be changed after x succesfull checks, then it wouldn't make buffering happen so often. It would be for a price of longer wait before quality raise, but I think it is way better then previous variant i wrote where you have to wait for video to buffer and lower quality again.
While I was writing this feedback I had buffering happen like in 3-5 min intervals on auto, if I remember correctly. I just saw going video quality up and shortly after went into buffering. Can test it again tommorow if you want more precise info.
And I miss a question, how frequently you goes into buffer?
Thanks for your feedback, our network condition have stability issues, with auto setting, it may jump to re-buffer, or frequent quality switch.
Would like to hear opinions so we can improve our quality:
1) We would give user quality limitation in auto setting, so in this case, you can force quality limited to high;
2) With auto setting, do you feel quality switch is a problem from time to time?
