GB3TV is off air and the street image is the streaming location in Leighton Buzzard.

We're patiently waiting for a fix.

I was just about to post saying that it hadn't failed for ages, when it stopped streaming!!

Apart from a glitch on Dec 21st at 11:18 (This restarted okay on its own), the latest fail was last night at 23:34 Jan 12 until I reset the PC at 9:13 Jan 13th. Between those times it did its 10second retry loop.

I'm still getting regular fails and having to re-start streaming almost everyday. It did seem to settle down at one point, but once again its back to almost everyday. Did anyone ever get any further as to why this is happening on what seems to be the GB3YT stream only?

It looks like the writing is on the wall for Flash anyway, so are there any help pages for changing it away from Adobe?

Thanks, Kay

Hi Kay,
It is quite easy to stream HTML5 with OBS https://obsproject.com or Vmix https://www.vmix.com . Both are free to download and use, though you need to apply for a free licence for Vmix. I am currently using OBS to stream GB3EN and IO91WN. The worst part of streaming this way is the 30-50 second delay. It seems that higher bit rates have less delay.

Hi Kay

Apologies, we had to do some brief server maintenance yesterday (trying to track down why the main BATC site is so slow at the moment), and that may have caused you to need to restart.

Interested that it has been good and then started failing again. We'll keep an eye on things as we continue our work to improve the service.

Dave, G8GKQ

Thanks Duncan for the info - I'll have a look at that.

Thanks for the update Dave. It would sometimes run okay for quite a few days, then out of the blue it would fail. Yesterday and today have been non-stop failures of streaming, but I did notice there were some problems with the BATC site being very slow.

I think I'll abandon restarting until you have had chance to sort out the root problems with the website.
