OK, I will run it again... @ericxtang is on www.livepeer.tv now

I am currently launching an attack on the record for the longest stream in Livepeer.
I believe that the record stands at 5hr 31mins by Chris Hobcroft, although this is unconfirmed.

@chrishobcroft
Now @dob is on www.livepeer.tv

And we're up to 4hrs 9mins for the longest ever stream :)
It's not live though, it's streaming dead video

I'm seeing occasonal vidoe freezeing for a few secs. But the audio goes right on!

one more hour!

@chrishobcroft
@rayj00 I see that also, I think it's due to the limitation on my upstream bandwidth.

@rayj00
@chrishobcroft Other than that.....awesome!!

@chrishobcroft
Occasionally I lose capacity (e.g. when my neighbours want to upload something to Google Drive) and this squeezes the signal and OBS just starts dropping frames.

@AntonTal_twitter making me look good on @livepeertv as we set a new record for the #longeststreamever on Livepeer :)

OK, we've just broken through the 20hr mark on Livepeer TV... this record-breaking stream is going strong... no manual intervention...

I have been using their free VPS at "System On Grid" for a few months. I originally want to use it as a Livepeer node. But at the time, Livepeer had a memory requirement and the free VPS with 1Gig of mem was not cutting it. So I think I will just continue using it to host a website. However...I just noticed they instituted a huge price reduction and was wondering if anyone is using one of there VPS's for hosting a Livepeer node? Check out these prices at https://systemongrid.com/pricing/ Disclaimer: I am not being rewarded in any way from SoG for posting this. I just think the pricing is phenomenal! Although their default price is based on 10Gb of storage. it looks like a 8CPU, 8GB Mem, 40GB SSD and 8TB Transfer would be $20.00/month! Which is what I am paying for half those features at another provider!!! I will run a speed test from my 1CPU/1GB Mem/10GB SSD free VPS and see how their speed is.

@rayj00
So I ran a speed test from my free VPS and my paid VPS. What do you think of this comparison?

I’d say your linode VPS is giving you nearly 4x the upload capacity :), but the SoG node still has enough to get out a single high res stream.
rayj00
@rayj00
I would say the SoG network might be a good candidate to use for doing demos.

I spun up a free tier 30GB SSD t2.micro at Amazon. It's free for a year. You can have multiple accts to different email addresses. aws+001@gmail.com and so on. (if you have google g-suite or gmail, a + sign makes the handle a prefix for an alias)
rayj00
@rayj00
SoG also provides a free VPS for a year. Are there others?

Now broadcasting from a low specification (but free) VPS. https://media.livepeer.org/channels/0x58F3d09Dbd7A9aD4484FA54fa1D23509Ea4A8Edb
It initially hung after 10 secs or so. But re-initializing OBS and it been going for a few mins now.
The VPS has 1 CPU, 10 Mb SSD, 1 Gb Mem.
Still holding at 30 sec. latency!
rayj00
@rayj00
Memory being eaten at a rate of 9Mb/30 secs???
f1l1b0x
@f1l1b0x
vps with 1 cpu for what? Transcoding? source encoding=?
sounds like being way too small for any streaming task over 144p
rayj00
@rayj00
It looks good to me?
f1l1b0x
@f1l1b0x
how much cpu utilization do you measure?
rayj00
@rayj00
Doesn't look lile I can view that on the dashboard.
Its a free tier so I suspect they don't give out any tools.
The wrench in this will be memory. I'm down to 68M free.
I'm thinking <1hr broadcasting per 1Gb of memory.
rayj00
@rayj00
Hmmmm..mem starts going back up while streaming!
Goes down to 60M then back up to 75M?
So the initial mem problem must be fixed.
Well I'm a happy camper using the free VPS. Should be enough to do a demo if I need to.
rayj00
@rayj00
@f1l1b0x On the livepeer player, do you know what the two counters are for? I suspect the first is broadcast time, not sure what the second one is?
f1l1b0x
@f1l1b0x
@rayj00 for me this sounds like your cpu is at max and your memory leak is just buffers piling up cause the box you use cant handle the encoding task
Memory really is not that important in a live workflow
If everything works well buffers just fill and empty if you see your memory usage rising over time it usually is an indicator that something is not working right. Could be your resource management but it also could be a bug preventing those buffers to be cleared
I think given the micro instance you are using it is your resource mangement
rayj00
@rayj00
When the mem usage reaches around 61M free, it then increases back up to 75M free. It then fluctuates between ~61 and ~75 for the remainder of the broadcast.
