Wow.. You are the technical expert ! So !=20
15kbps max transmission =20
(Althought I can=B4t believe it that it must be that low, but your
calculations were convincing. So I must set up the max sending rates
according to the number of participants, dynamically, after loging on a
ref !)

But I hope that
28kbps max receiving=20
is allowed for 28.8 connections.

So what are the expert=B4s advices for the min transmission and receiving
with the same technical elegance ?

But.. from my pov, this proves my feelings that "full refs are
very-slow, even if I receive just a few videos", in opposite to what
Gary is argueing !
