PS4 Twitch Delay???

[ Edited ]
7 replies 1694 views Edited Feb 1, 2014

Not sure if there is a solution to this yet but I was wondering if any other users on here who have experience this. I have a Twitch account and notice that there is a 10 to 15 second delay on the video feed. I was watching a live stream on a person's channel and was chatting with the guy and notice that what I say shows up on the twitch live feed about 15 seconds later. He was having a problem getting past a part in a game and basically what I was seeing was 15 seconds too slow. So I could never really help him by giving him hints in real time. I had to have him stop himself in the game so I can see exactly where he was but that doesn't help when you are in a fire fight.

 

So it there a solution to fix this?

That is not true. 1. There are way too many comments to monitor, 2. Sony is not in charge of comments,  3. You can curse.

Well that is kinda of funny because I tested out Ustream and it has a 2 second delay which a little more bearable. I mean the whole ideal of broadcasting your game videos is to have your friends see you play in real time. So they can help assist when they can. I only have tried this broadcasting on a few games but have been using it more with my playing Tomb Raider.

I don't think it's the video that is delayed,  it's the comments that are delayed.

 

I'm guessing it's to let everyone have a chance for the broadcaster to read comments,  as only 2 can be read at one time,  instead of having a big block of spam messages. It gives everyone an opportunity to have their comment read by the broadcaster.

Well I did a audio test by counting 1 2 3 etc and I usually hear my self saying 1 within 15 seconds on the website. I also can tell that my video on the website doesn't match what is on my PS4 screen.

There is both a delay in the video and the chat, I was joking about the sony censorship.
