Speaking to the Speedify developers
On the 61st episode of Speedify Live we are once again joined by one of Speedify’s lead developers, Kevin, to take a look at what features our customers would like to see, and what our team’s been working on recently.
We take on various audience questions, from Speedify’s bonding modes to the number of connections you can combine, while we also look at how Speedify could be implemented into streaming software like OBS.
Here are out 5 takeaways from our Office Hours:
- Officially, Speedify supports Debian based Linux distributions, however you could technically use it on other Linux versions as well, through the CLI, but you may end up losing some of the features we’ve added. There are exceptions of course, like OpenWRT.
- If one of your connections is limited in data or expensive, you can set daily or monthly data caps for it in the Speedify app, or in Windows itself, if you set a connection as metered, Speedify will recognize that the connection is more expensive or limited, and set it as Secondary so it will not use it as much.
- Speedify has three bonding modes: Speed, Redundant and Streaming. The difference between Streaming and Speed mode is mainly that in Streaming mode, the app will look out for specific things like video and audio traffic, and will prioritize that as “streaming traffic” above everything else.
- Something the Speedify team has been looking into is how Speedify could be implemented into streaming software like OBS. There’s a high likelihood that if we plug in the right URL into OBS, we could get the Speedify user interface to show up in OBS, making monitoring and controlling Speedify when streaming much easier.
