Hi Antoine,

Can someone please tell me if there is a possibility to multicast UDP messages through asUDP? I need to relay timecode information to multiple computers to run videos on them in sync. If I relay that information sequentially, it brings too much lag.

Also, can't I get rid of the buffered stream of information to just read the latest packet sent? If there was some way of cleaning buffer and then reading, it would be perfect!

Regards

Puneet

Hi,
no, multicast is not permitted/possible in asUDP.
Normally, if you send in a small repeat loop, you should be able to synchronise multiple computers with a lag under humain perception. I've done it, and I know that others hav done it.
Also, you can empty the queue by reading everything in a short repeat loop until it is empty, this is really fast!
If you have lags, I suspect that it's probably another reason... but don't hesitate to discuss more about your case.
Cheers !
