Hi guys,

We have a video music playout system, that essentially plays videos through firefox, it uses socket.io

so basically nginx is setup on each machine and videos are played from client.domainname.net:9000 and hosts files point client.domainname.net to 127.0.0.1

so if we plug out ethernet out on most networks the videos will continue to play offline, however on certain networks if we plug  out ethernet the videos will stop and it will be an issue with socket.io and as soon as we plug the ethernet back in, everything will resume playing again, even though its playing them locally
