I’ve been wondering about the difference between the amount of MB/s that appear on the GlassWire monitor screen -top left and shown when clicking on the bottom bar- and the MB/s reported by Internet speed scanners.
There are also differences between what is shown on the top left of the monitor screen and what is shown by clicking on the bottom bar.
I’ve really liked GlassWire for years -still do- as it shows when downloads are completed before Chrome tells me. And also because it tells me when a first connection is made. So I can check if I recognize it as legit.
But the MB/s difference issue has always puzzled me a bit… even though my speed is fine -no buffering interruptions for videos for example- so I don’t worry about it.
Lately something I also don’t understand is that there are live stream videos given twice a week for an online course I follow, and once about a minute or so the screen freezes and the sound is gone for some 5-10 seconds. Then the image moves again and the sound continues, but it skipped the part that was frozen.
Later when I watch that video again but now recorded and saved on that website it plays normally.
So the freezing only happens when I receive the live stream, meaning in real time. Not when i watch the recording of it later.
