Been having this problem since 'forever'.
I have a buddy who lives in the US and we video chat occasionally.
But whenever we video chat, no matter what time of day, it's always laggy.
There would be stretches of the convo where it's not laggy at all, but over all it's hella laggy.
My connection is with Orcon, i do regular speed checks and it tops out at 5 Mbps download / .86 Mpbs upload on a daily basis. Ping is around 27 , since I'm using a laptop. But my router is basically right in teh next room and i get a full signal out of it.
Browsing is fine. Streaming is somewhat fine, i streamed a live epi of Walking Dead last week.
Have not tried any other method yet, but should we ? We haven't cam chatted in a while
Her connection is way faster than mine so that shouldn't be an issue, she's got 50Mbps download and max upload.
Would Facebook video chat or skype video chat be better ? what is the problem here.
