If you have caught some of my posts you will notice I do not use transcoding because of my local and remote bandwidth and prefer no overhead on my server. However, this Thanksgiving weekend we were out in the desert with our Wifi setup to a permanent Mobile Hotspot. My son was trying to use his Hulu App to play a football game (via portable overhead projector) and it would not work. I assumed it might lower the bandwidth like Netflix but in any case it would not work without stopping every few seconds. I said lets try my Channels App (on my phone) and he was able to adjusted the quality to the point it worked great. Of course lost my iPhone for a few hours.
So, thank you Channels Developers for a great app that made our weekend just a bit better. Can not be riding sand toys all weekend.
