I’m trying to figure out how much effect this setting has on various things like my server load, internet upload speed, mobile phone signal and the relation between all those, when streaming audio only files (aka music) when on the road.
The reason I ask is because I’ve been running Jellyfin for 2 days, fresh install, to manage and stream my music to my mobile phone using the Android app.
When I’m at home there is no problem with the stream, since my phone is connected to Wi-Fi it has a pretty solid connection with the server.
But when I’m on the road a lot of tracks get sliced (so to speak). The music starts, but after 45-90 seconds stops for some random amount of time (5-180 seconds) and resumes. But stops again after some time.
I think it may be related to my modem’s upstream speed, 6-9Mbps, but can’t be sure.
If changing the “encoding preset” setting makes a difference in the amount of data send across the internet, it might help me pinpoint the problem of getting interrupted audio streams.
