  •  it's the right rov, but it still freezes (5+ / 0-)

      •  it may boot you (6+ / 0-)

        because you are coming in from an inappropriate location thereby putting load on the backbone which the content distribution network is designed to avoid.  It may also be that DNS for that link now points to a different reflector than it did at 5AM (checked, it is the same).

        You might try pulling up a command window and typing
        nslookup a1500.l9789231499.c97892.g.lm.akamaistream.net

        From here (Charlottesville, VA), it resolves to
        72.246.31.110

        It would be interesting to see what the results are for other locations.

          Changing the DNS shouldn’t lead to sporadic feed-freeze problems – they should either get the feed or not, not get it and then have it lock up (IIRC!)

          The lookup’s giving me (from London, UK, btw) two domain controller IPs (92.122.211.46 & 92.122.211.53). Again, digging through my (seemingly non error-correcting) memory to when I was learning networking, getting multiple controllers from a single query for one domain indicates that they may have assigned multiple IPs to try and balance the load. You may be being consistently routed to a more stable one.

          For what it’s worth, the stream I’m getting for both BOA Deep C ROVs (but not the other ROVs feeds) is irregular – it’ll freeze and then a few seconds later update a few frames, freeze again for a bit, etc. but not halt entirely. I think that they’re having load issues or some other problem on at least some of their servers.

          Anyway, Deep C #1 just surfaced and went offline as I was typing this, so hopefully by the time its around again, they’ll have sorted out any issues.
