is it really a lot of people adding a delay?...
No= alot of people put delays on their feeds so criminals can't use them for illegal activities. (Usually 15min)
Well, to save me a lot of typing I would point you to the "Live Audio Feed" forum. There have been many threads regarding setting up delays.is it really a lot of people adding a delay?
Since the OP's question has been answered let me divert this thread just a little.. can you point me to the methods used to get the delay of 10-15 mins? Is it software? I don't want to do this on my feed but might need to. I saw a little bit of info in my Google search but nothing that sounded very easy to set up.
well i will keep looking. but I have searched and not found much that was helpful so far. I'll subscribe to this thread also just in case something helpful is added.Well, to save me a lot of typing I would point you to the "Live Audio" forum.

Those threads should walk you through doing it, if not, let me know.
Well that is a pity.. I agree there is no need for an hour long delay but if a police dispatch channel routinely has transmissions that could endanger people if known by the bad guys, then a 10-15 min delay is fair. Like I said, I don't want to do this but it might be needed. I am in a wait and see mode now. I think Lindsay needs to rethink that policy since it could go a long way to avoiding lawsuits against him and the broadcasters. (The lawsuits might be dismissed in any case but avoiding them in the first place is worthwhile.. trust one who has been sued for no good reason in a case that took years to be dismissed).The last I knew, there was a specific "don't do it or (we'll) drop your feed" policy concerning intentional long delays in feeds. The thread you just posted has such a statement from Lindsay...
I just re-read and maybe I missed something, but all I saw was:The last I knew, there was a specific "don't do it or (we'll) drop your feed" policy concerning intentional long delays in feeds. The thread you just posted has such a statement from Lindsay...
Here is another thing to consider. Someone could very easily come in and say "I want to provide this feed in real-time vs the existing delayed feed."
What do we do then? Terminate the delayed feed and let the real-time feed take precedence? Don't allow the new feed? Run them together?
Remember, we have a large community here, and we add 5-10 new feeds every day.
Can of worms
The 2nd quote means on RR's side not the provider'sWe don't have any immediate plans to implement systemwide abilities for audio feed delays - so if you don't agree with that then please either take your feed offline or don't start one. Thanks.
that will work, even though I should have said that it MIGHT be needed now, I just don't have the information to know if it is. Some of what I have heard on my feed does concern me, but the agency does have options for secure comm if they choose to use it. \Well, if it's not needed now, I'll let you post a thread asking for a how-to either here, or on the proscan help forum.
I can tell you from experience that this will require a delay!! Three letter agencies will "ask" that you do (Well, I guess if it was very generic/boring tgids you might not have a issue)I'm considering some feeds for the Dem Convention also but security might be even a bigger concern then, so again knowing how to quickly add a delay might be a good thing.
Thanks for the help and guidance.
That's false. RadioFeed/ProScan does not have a delay other then a few hundred milliseconds for capturing/processing. Where did you get the 1 Hour and 10mb from?radiofeed allows you to do it on your side easily and 1hour delay only uses 10mb and cpu usage is insignificant
