Third latency test - Qik against USTREAM

In this test we run Qik Live against USTREAM on iPhone 3 GS over 3G-connection.
Please notice that you can't stream live with USTREAM before you get approval to do so (instructions).

Final results in latency/frame rate test:
  1. qik live
  2. USTREAM
  3. Bambuser
Before you go screaming for the qik live, please notice they don't support live chat but ustream does.
We will next move on to desktop streaming, resolution tests and later on to usability, features and API's.

Qik has awesome fps over 3G! I was wondering if you could force the phones to 2G (edge) and try how the services perform then..

Wow, nice job in doing these tests. Can you also compare quality and bandwidth use between Ustream, Bambuser, and Qik?

Ilkka Pirttimaa said...

Thanks Amit and Antti. I will cover resolution and bandwidth usage in next tests.

Hey Ilkka, nice tests! one thing though, I tested bambuser and qik on my htc hero and found out that qik had a 10sec delay over wifi and bambuser a 4sec delay over the same wifi. have you tested these recently. Im kinda dissapointed anyway, would have been cool to have a video with a 1 sec delay or less.

Well said, I blog because I enjoy it. I try not to get caught up in the comparison game. It is a process and you really do have to call on your better angels at times, but the minute this stops being fun for me and turns into an anxiety provoking and jealousy making endeavor it will be over for me. Thanks for this great post.
