to this day I’m wondering if there is a soft-lock limitation on how many concurrent users a session can feature. We are a group of 8 people. 1 Gamemaster (myself) and 7 players, playing for almost one year now. Only 7 of the 8 players use the camera.
We often encounter glitched video broadcasting. We only use video broadcasting and disabled audio to save resources. We often use TeamSpeak or Discord for voice.
Is it a Forge or an FVTT or even a problem of our group that cameras often do need to be reloaded. We have black “video screens” for some users and reloading the page sometimes fixes it, makes it worse or some users turn black while others are visible.
We did a lot of troubleshooting, turning on hardware acceleration, checking the internet connection, upgrading hardware, disabling all modules, loading a new world, and so on.
We never had a game in which everyone could see everybody else and as the adventure goes on, many screens freeze, we need to reload and troubleshoot since nonverbal communication is such an amazing thing. A nod or thumbs up replaces hearing 8 people say: Yes, we want to take the right path.
Back to my question: Is this our fault? Is it an FVTT or maybe a Forge problem? Are people out there experiencing the same issues?
We’ve had it throughout the year and we tried so much. I would really appreciate any help on this topic. FVTT + Forge is the greatest thing out there. We just need a working video interface for everyone <3
