[nSLUG] nSLUG Digest, Vol 669, Issue 2

just read this from yesterday,

I have voip.ms with a grandstream. I've prioritized my traffic using QOS 
and VLAN tagging on my home router, this worked quite well for me on the 
lowest internet package available through Bell, and alongside this was 
my wife and daughter both tableting.

However, I do concur and share the frustration that these things should 
be much more streamlined... but if we are talking about a failing to 
follow standards, I'm trying to get AirServer or Miracast to work from 
my Android to... well anything to livestream, and discover that it pins 
my cpu.. even when I force it to the NVidia card!... and there are no 
'standards' to either of these things usage!

Nothing but good times!


Happy Friday
