Yes, that's why I wrote the two messages I linked above -- it finally struck me that hardly any of the explanations that are given out really to explain (or attempt to) what's going on and what you're likely to experience. That leads to ... misunderstandings, disappointments and unfulfilled expectations.

Agreed. There are too many "closed" systems that don't allow the user to experience the real-time latency that everyone else they're playing with is hearing, which again leads to those misunderstandings, disappointments and unfulfilled expectations. That's one of the reasons I prefer Jamulus over other realtime systems -- you hear your latency. If you hear it bad, you know it's bad. Still, it doesn't stop sessions like this: (got cut off by YT) (3h live session)
