not a problem per se but a question as far as anydesk-connection is concerned:
I´ve got a question regarding data usage as far as anydesk is concerned:
As my sole means of internet connection is a 4G-stick (huawei E3372h-320) I´m on a tight budget.
I´ve got 5 GB high-speed data available per 28 days.
What I´d like to find out is whether there´s a possibility/setting that lets me use as little data as possible
The day before yesterday I helped my friend for about 2 hours and the connection used up about 400 MB on my part.
Curious thing though: Formerly I was using the 3G-stick Huawei E1550 and I recollect that even a 4 hours session didn´t take up more than about 150 GB.
(sorry, I meant 150 MB of course, see @Akito ´s post below)
Using the “Best reaction time” is just a euphemism for preferring a lower quality display for the sake of better performance and snappiness when streaming a desktop.
The biggest data consumer is display and sound. If you turn off sound and keep the display quality to a minimum, you should achieve the most thrifty results.
First of all, you are talking about 150MB, not 150GB.
Secondly, this can happen, when the program, i.e. AnyDesk, “balances” both, quality and “reaction time”. The time it used up 150MB, it may have balanced to a poorer display quality, while the other time it preferred a better display quality.
Thirdly, it hugely depends on the activities streamed. If I stream my desktop with (almost) no movement for 24 hours, it will still use much less data, than watching a 2 hour long action movie with explosions, while having AnyDesk enforcing best audio and video quality.
thanks so much for helping me with this one as well.
You´re right of course. Sorry about the typo.
As far as display is concerned the quality settings already are like in your picture.
But I may still do something about audio. I´ve just un-checked “Enable audio transmission”.
Perhaps I´ll help a bit.
That I understand.
Trying to think of past activities I cannot say for sure but I´m more or less convinced we didn´t do anything out of the ordinary. So no video streaming or anything like that.
So I think - thanks to your help - I´ve adjusted the anydesk settings as best I could.
I´ll keep an eye on data consumption next time I connect to my friend´s laptop.
Thank you very much once again, Akito. Your help is very much appreciated.
