Thank you for raising this ticket request. I will monitor it.
In the mean time, I can connect regular speakers. Is it possible to stop NoMachine from injecting the audio sources into the guest OS? Setting the AudioInterface Disabled flag still lists the virtual device as shown on the attached picture.
I got a 2014 Mac Mini with 3GHz i7, 16GB of RAM and 512 Intel SSD. I’m not impressed by the performance, even though the machine is on the same LAN. The stutters are gone for the most part, but if there’s a heavy load the audio will momentarily skip while being passed through. Is there anything else I can adjust (without losing quality) to enhance the experience? I don’t want to believe that a gigabit LAN is a bottleneck…
I decreased it to the lowest limit, no change. These are micro-stutters, like ticks in the sound, but they’re annoying. I think I will buy a decent Mac Mini and fire up NoMachine, then test it. Worst case scenario I’ll use it for something else. But I know for sure it’s not the network. The router, cables and computers are in the same room.
I’ll report back when I have the setup in place.
The only other program I have open is Top in terminal. Closing it has no effect. I did try the VP8 as well.
Maybe this Mac just can’t handle the load. It is, albeit in good shape, an old machine. It’s a 2010 2.13Ghz Core 2 Duo with 4GB of RAM and 256MB nVidia 320M.
I chose to test NoMachine on it because I wanted to buy a dedicated Mac Mini for a headless setup, but if I get stuttering like this on a decently configured Mac Mini, then that plan goes down the drain.
Is it that the network traffic isn’t prioritized enough, and any CPU spike causes stuttering? Does it have anything to do with the “QoS”? Because audio on the Mac doesn’t skip, only once routed through the network.
