Tablo Relay Service

#1

I would love to be able to use the Tablo outside without having to port forward. Plex has their relay service, I would love something like this for the Tablo.

#2

How much are you willing to pay for this? In addition to the current fee? Because it costs real money to do this.

#3

I was thinking instead of relying video thru their servers, they could use their server as a STUN server or something like that just to connect the dots between the client and the Tablo device.

#4

Plex can actually do this without port forwarding? How does it get around your router firewall?

#5

The Plex relay server actually does relay the video. Don’t think this would actually work well since Tablo is not as flexible on transcoding as Plex is.

Limitations

When relaying a connection through us, there are limitations for the streaming qualities you can use:

  • Free users are limited to 1 Mbps maximum for streams
  • Plex Pass subscribers are limited to 2 Mbps maximum for streams

I don’t use the relay service as I have a port forwarded on my router to my Plex server.

#6

Correct they do, but I don’t see why Tablo couldn’t just be a connector for connecting the two devices together. That’s why I said do it differently than plex does.

#7

2 Mbps, that is going to be poor quality.

#8

I’m not sure it’s technically possible to do it the way you’re thinking.
