Web Remote freezing/lagging in displaying service manager/playlist contents on the fly..frustrating!

Version of OpenLP
Operating system
Windows 10
Does anyone have a suggestion on how to keep OLP  display from freezing, due to the Web Remote (used via my tablet and/or phone) freezing/lagging in displaying service manager/playlist contents on the fly..frustrating!?  Any suggestion on making it run smoother? Thanks


  • That's not a feature I make use of, so I'm really limited in the help I can give.

    Having said that, make sure the computer doesn't have a lot of other things running in the background and make sure it isn't running Windows updates either.  The only way I know how to avoid that on Win 10 is to make sure it's updated through the week.
  • Thanks for your reply.

    As much as I would like to carry on using OLP, the one thing I am still searching for in a Worship Presentation Program is a seamless and smooth use of a remote facility that is able to not only advance slides back and forth, but also able to search and display songs and bible passages on the fly. While OLP has this facility, its constantly freezing/lagging remote functionality has unfortunately made it pretty useless for me.

    I have recently been trying out SongPro, but its remote functionality is alas pretty basic and no more than just advancing slides back and forth.

    I have been happy to date with Easyworship, but disinterested because of its total lack of remote functionality.

    I have had a recent try with PROCLAIM too, impressive software, but not also meeting my requirement in terms of FULL REMOTE FUNCTIONALITY - just slides advances - remote app not able to search and display songs and bible passages on the fly.

    I hate to give up until I find my need and requirement fulfilled. So any help, suggestions, guidance, and signposting from anybody would greatly be appreciated.
  • Have you tried the app? We use the app and it works great for us. It can search.
  • Yes I have, but it freezes or lags most of the time. I wondered what I am doing wrong, if it works smoothly for you at all times!!
  • "At all times" would be to stretch the truth. It has moments of lag, as if the computer got bored and needs to be reminded it is supposed to be paying attention. Or perhaps there is other activity on our network since it is an open network and everyone seems to have a smartphone these days.
  • The embarrassing moments come when you are leading worship, and the next song refuses to come up because the remote is frozen/lagging, and no one knows when the lyrics will show up. You then do an emergency call up for some one to rush to the main laptop and manually takeover!...I would have loved a truly working remote at all times.
  • You could try a remote controlling software such as TeamViewer,


    This way you can pretty much remote control any software, this could even work better than the OpenLP remote itself.
    (Disclaimer: I haven't used remotes to control OpenLP or other lyric projectation software)

  • Just make sure that you run in LAN mode ("Local Area Network", which is your private network), otherwise it'll go from the remote PC to the internet as a whole and back to the local PC.  Which pretty much guarantees freezing/lag.
  • Many thanks Milon for your untiring and unrelenting efforts to reply and find solutions to so many problems/issues on the forum - may your love-efforts to relief peoples' stress be rewarded by the Almighty (amen!).

    Thanks also Azaziah for your suggestion. I will be trialing this (teamviewer) out in the next few weeks.
