Things to know before talking about the bug:
- even after multiple windows installs, hardware wipes, correct wifi drivers installed, windows drivers installed issue still there
- when asked, network acces was given both for private-home and for public places to openlp
- issue appears and can be triggered everytime after launching openLp ( both with stock settings, and with small personalised settings done)
- de-activating the remote plugin doesnt fix this
First I noticed almost a year ago that my phone connection to openLP would freeze every 10-20 sec for almost 10-15 seconds, no matter the phone i used or the network ( tried in different places, tested at church and home) so i basicaly gave up the feature
I later discovered that its not the phone app, or the phones connection to the laptop.
Lets say we have something active opened, like a teamviewer connection or a windows remote connection, or a mouse sharing software like Synergy ( this is what i use to control with 1 mouse and keyboard , multiple computers and screens so imagine it needs a active connection to the laptop, just like team viewer for example)
All these apps would stop working 10 seconds into openLp launch, and it would behave exactly the same as the phone remote connection. Basicaly while OpenLP is opened, my internet connection drops for a few seconds, every 20-30 seconds. Refreshing any webpage during this time gets stucked in "RESOLVING HOST",
and i have to wait a few seconds for the cycle to repeat so i can use the internet or reconnect with any remote app.
Closing OpenLP makes the network stable again and all the software works + webpages do not drop anymore.
I explained this the best way i could.
Both withdows 10 version 2004 which i upgraded to 1 day ago, and the previous 19xx before it.
I am on latest version of openLp, and I also tested this on a manual older version download, from 1 year ago.
Firewall is allowing home,public and work acces.
About events manager, I wouldn't know what to differentiate in there..
Would you like to take a look with team viewer ? Im about t ogive up on openlp because i cant figure this out for many months now.
I did have an issue once when behind a VERY strong firewall where the Android remote would keep switching between the WiFi and Cellular data...it kept thinking the WiFi was broken because it couldn't reach any normal internet stuff....Great FireWall! Nothing gets through! switching off the cellular data on the phone fixed this issue.
By any chance is the WiFi connection shown as having "no internet"? or is there another WiFi signal near by that might be more tempting for Windows to look at? Windows sometimes likes to try new WiFi access points if it feels they might be faster. Telling Windows to be less aggressive about roaming to new WiFi access points might help if this is the case.
Any idea where could be the issue, please? This really makes me little bit crazy, because we would like to run live stream also using OpenLP and with this my connection is always breaking down.
version: OpenLP 2.4.6
OS: Windows 10 Home version 20H2
Has this been resolved? I just noticed that Zoom lags when I am using Open LP. I closed the software and things improved.
coming back after a year or so, the situation is the same, and it is only fixed on the latest beta 3
Thank you. Do you recommend I install the beta 3 version ?
I am experincing the same thing.
I will try using a cable next time to troubleshoot.
i tested i think on 10 fresh installments of windows 10 official iso, alongside the year, so multiple windows versions. same thing, even if this is just the only software installed on the windows
no, its buggy, unusable.
Except the fact that the internet signal is not droppped anymore every 20 seconds
