I've only got 5Mbps up (23 down)


I'm betting that's plenty for most stuff...I've actually only got about 5Mbps up and 60ish down but streaming works OK for me. I think the biggest hurdle for you would be that you're in Australia (which I didn't know) so that would mean some serious latency if you did anything online. I think with Bigscreen it starts out streaming in low quality and gradually ramps up till it hits the limit, so even if you couldn't do 1080p perfect streaming you could maybe do 720p or SOMETHING.

I don't have an understand of the file size resuting from res, frame rate and bit rate but from what I've read/heard 5Mbps gets you decent 480p or crappy 720p. But maybe not, I've never actually tried. Suppose I should try just streaming to youtube or something. Also have a data cap of 500 gig >_> That said, I just assumed that it'd require being streamed at the native Vive res but I guess not.

some forum mates were talking about a movie night a while back, this would be really cool for that but then they're all console guys too.

Yeah I don't think that even PS VR works with anything like Bigscreen. If it did that would be a great option though.

Nah, I actually googled that one. https://www.reddit.com/r/PSVR/comments/4yk4c0/will_there_be_a_bigscreen_vr_equivalent_for_psvr/d6omzam/

That's probably your biggest worry with online gaming on the vive...

Nah, it's like this: You're in a theater, I'm sitting next to you (or wherever) and so whatever it takes to transmit my movements and voice get sent, and the video/audio from the movie gets streamed, but like I said, I think it starts at crap resolution and works its way up. So if you're watching someone else's stream, you're fine....if you're streaming... well here's the dev:
https://steamcommunity.com/app/457550/discussions/0/1456202946276986092/#c1457328927825609036

Multiplayer 480p is probably like 500kbps upload, 720p around 1.5mbps, and 1080p around 2-3mbps. All of that multiplied by the number of people in your room. In a 4 person room, you are uploading to 3 people simultaneously and probably downloading from 3 people simultaneously too.

If everybody is doing 1080p (720p is our default), then you will be uploading like 6mbps and downloading 6mbps. That's like... 90MB in 1 minute? Or 5GB per hour?

Generally, if you aren't doing much on your desktop, you aren't even streaming like 100kbps. It's very very little. Only if something on your screen is changing a lot.

150GB a month is SO much bandwidth, I think you are perfectly fine. I have the same limit, and I use Bigscreen like 20+ hours a week and I've never come close to that.


So less than 6Mbps upload is 720p territory I guess (with a full room)

Seems his calcs aren't working out. 90MB per minute = 1.5MB per second = approx 12 Mbps up speed?

I think I actually get about 500 KB/s up max which seems like 480p at best, like anything higher and it's gunna start getting pretty crappy at that bit rate :/ Just as far as actually streaming video/games I mean. Figure the rest would negligible.

Based on vids I've done before where with a lot of action/fast motions I needed like 6-8Mbps bitrate for it to not look crappy. And 6 was really pushing it at 720p. But that was through Windows Live Movie Maker which may very well be s***ty. I just don't know as that's my only experience with doing vids. Well other than shadowplay stuff but I think I've got that set to 1080p, 60fps, 15Mbps.

I guess the simple way to find out would be to just try when I get home. And I would... but now I don't have any damned internet, thank NBN! Something in the line or box is dead >_<

Capture software captures the desktop mirror, not the video signal used for the Vive. The desktop mirror varies from game to game so you'll have to tweak your software for whatever game you're playing. I've played games that mirror the native Vive res in a window, some that stretch it awkwardly so it has to have the aspect ratio manually adjusted and some that actually upscale and crop a very nice 1080p frame that doesn't need any adjusting. It all depends on the game.

Because some of us around here aren't the typical basement dwelling, mouth breathing neckbeard. We don't need to constantly up our fap game because we get attention from the ladies. Sucks to be you I guess.
