Speedify LIVE Office Hours: Q&A with the Developers
April 20 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Speedify Questions Answered via Live Streaming
On the 74th episode of Speedify Live we hold our weekly Office Hours with one of Speedify’s lead developers to discuss all things Speedify and streaming.
We take on viewer questions about everything from stream detection to Speedify icon colors, to OpenVPN support, while we also recap what’s new in Speedify 12, the update you don’t want to miss!
Here are our 5 takeaways from this Office Hours session:
- Speedify supports every streaming software! Our app will look for common factors like ports, streaming protocols and traffic that’s common for streaming, and use them to detect and prioritize your streams.
- Speedify does not support OpenVPN because it wouldn’t be fast enough for what we’re trying to do! So while you can’t use Speedify on an OpenVPN-supported router, we instead recommend running Speedify on Windows, MacOS or Linux, or even a Raspberry Pi and share your bonded connection that way.
- Speedify actively monitors your available connections and will give more traffic to the ones that perform better, while also respecting your set connection priorities! While secondary connections would be used less as they tend to be more expensive or limited in data, if you have multiple primary connections, Speedify will prefer giving more traffic to the ones that are faster.
- In case you’re not interested in some of Speedify’s push notifications about streams, updates or suggestions, feel free to disable them! Head into the Speedify app’s settings, scroll down to the Display section, and within Notifications you can disable whichever option you don’t need.
- Speedify 12 has just released and we’ve made a LOT of improvements: better stream detection, better handling of cellular and Secondary connections when streaming, improved detection of connection failure, and more seamless failover between connections. We also improved our News and Events section where you’ll see info on upcoming streams and suggestions on how you can get the most out of Speedify!
The default on iOS is actually that we try to stay in the state you last used. So even if you reboot the phone, when the phone comes back, we’ll see that you left that switch on and we’ll reconnect.
