Technical Support for Jaksta Recorder for Slingbox
Records, but video is like a slideshow
Asked by Glen Miller @ 28 Sep 2015 13:09 / Views: 85
I downloaded the demo version. I was able to record a stream, and the audio is there, although somewhat compresssed sounding. The video does record, but is not at all fluid. It's like a series of slides, each updating every 4-5 seconds. This is true of the asf file, and the converted mp4.
When I watch the same sling stream in my browser or sling app, it looks fine, so the network, slingbox, etc all seem fine. (The stream also records properly if I use the SLR app, but your app is more refined, and I was hoping for higher resolution, so I would like to see what your app can do.)
Suggestions for fixing the video?

Are you recording from a slingbox on the same network or across the internet? If your local then use the local IP address.
You can adjust the recording settings - resolution, bitrates, framerates etc on the Slingbox settings > Recording Settings tab.
Finally make sure you have a supported slingbox model - http://support.jaksta.com/discussions/topics/6000009282

Thanks for the reply. It's on the same LAN. So instead of the long ID, I just put in the IP address? OK, I'll try that. (OK, that worked, but I needed have the router assigned Port too.) It's a Solo,so supported. Results:
- Going direct IP did not help
- I went into the bitrates. I checked the box, and with the "default" values, now it works fine. That's kind of strange. What value was it actually using before? Well, I won't knock the right result.
