Hi Admin & everyone,
Yes... I thought about this having seen problems when playing or watching the image of a live wheel. Admin rightly say :
So the software suggested wrong data when the video connection to casino is not stable.
Ok, well from my technical experience of using video streaming across an internal network, i.e. we have a video camera supplying an image of a live wheel, to a number of touchscreen player terminals in a landbased casino, which is a system I looked after. Some systems used interlacing technology with grabber cards, where the chrominance (colour part of the video signal) was added to the luminance & grey scale, which needed speeds of around 15mb/s to work without interuption of delays with small 'freezes'.
But in our case, we are looking at the live wheel streaming data coming from Latvia on Playtech Casino's (they all appear to be the same image), which appears to be the central source of live wheel video for all the Playtech sites. My guess is, they are maybe using only a bare minimum specification to produce these images. Because as far as they are concerned, the wheel image is merely a 'guide', & is not important to have fast data speed for wheel image, but more priority is given to betting procedure (no more bets & winning/ place bets communication & payout comms).
I could go right into this with connection speed of GB/s, full or half duplex comms, the FPS rating of the wheel camera used etc etc... but this will be of no benifit to us guys!, so I will try to suggest some practical steps we could take to try to get a more stable image of the live wheel to get better result from our system in the making.
Right, may I suggest that firstly, your ISP (internet service provider) may offer several different options of connection speed, the faster it is, the more expensive the package generally speaking. For a decent stable image with video content or streaming, I suggest a minimum speed from your ISP of 2mb/s, to give better results. But of course regardless of this, we are still dependant upon the speed or quality of the data streaming of the wheel camera from our source in Latvia.
With all due respect, Latvia is hardly an affluent country, so my guess is they have hardly splashed out on a lavish or quality system (high quality, high spec data switches, video streaming protocol used, & high quality wheel camera spec), unless Playtec have made them adere to a minimum specification?. But as I said previously, with it being just the 'wheel image', then bare minimum specification may have been used, as it is 'low priority' as far as they are concerned (but not us!!)
So barring what we are able to do at our end to ensure stable images with our ISP speed we choose, the rest is in their hands so to speak. So perhaps we use a UK live wheel image,
from one of the independants to Playtech... like Dublin bet perhaps?. I have to say that the live wheel images coming from there appear to be more stable than the Playtech ones, maybe because they have better quality system setup for this, being a UK company, not something of Europeon or Latvian origin?.
We could all take a look at the alternative independant providers to Playtech, like Dublin Bet, or how about 32 Red?, have not looked at their live wheel video for quality of feed?. If anyone else could suggest other independants, & find a better one than Playtech, then perhaps we can all gain an advantage when the appp is released by Admin?
Problem being, is 'speading out' the winnings carefully to avoid any alerts!
. That is one advantage when using Playtech, we have many Casino's in which to spread our bets, whereas with small independant, we will have to be careful when it comes down to amounts won!.
Any suggestions here as to independants we could use or take a look at, with regard to quality of video of the live wheel feed (consistancy with no freezing or delays). This may prove useful to us all in the long run I guess. Hope this info may help out a bit
