You must have had someone else in mind when sending this message, Richard.
Which makes a lot of sense to me, Considering you must be answering such a multitude of questions by so many users.
Please believe me I have no issue with the QoS metrics built-in to Flash, nor the NetStream.info.
m simply trying to use this BWcheck module as a means of claculating how long will it take the user to recieve a specific big file (the files not being sent with NetStream at all).
Neither did I assume that latency and kBitDown are the same.
I just attempted to determine if the formula for calculating how long a file will take to be transferred (assuming bandwidth is not constant) would be:
Latency + kbitDown*fileSize in kbits
Is my formula correct ?
If not, what would be the right formula, please ?
Also, you said:
“latency” is how long will it take to start playing
The speed at which it will play once it starts is indicated by kbitDown
In what units is measured latency ? seconds ?
and in what units is measured kbitDown? kbits per second ?
