Video speed inconsistent on Rouvy

Hi, I've just got an Elite Direto and signed up to Rouvy.

The (training) ride I've just done had a few seconds where the videoing rider missed a turn, so slowed down, stopped and turned round to take it.
However, I was riding at the same speed, but the video slowed down. I'd expect to see the 2nd rider in the video moving at an unusually fast speed, plus the landscape moving at the speed I was riding at.

Any thoughts?

Thanks.

I was under the impression perhaps wrong that the Rouvy videos were made in a car. There is some variability in how well they are synced, for example riding the Kona Coast Ironman rides the synch is really good, if the video stops at a stop light the bicycle and rider zip out of the front and down the road, as soon as the car starts moving it catches up quickly. But doing one yesterday called Katoomba I had the feeling that sometimes at the top or bottom of a hill the resistance as far as up/down didn't always mesh exactly with the picture. Have also had issues occasionally which I think are related to wifi bandwidth that the video stops moving. The little avatar on the profile at the bottom and up in the left hand corner still move and the resistance changes, every 1/4 mile or so the video will jump ahead a little bit. Doesn't happen all the time.

Pretty sure most of them are made using a vehicle. A few times I've seen the vehicle shadow. Really enjoy the software though. Went with this over TACX because of the avatar setup. Really like the mix of split graphics with real location video.

It depends on the ride. Most of the rides are uploaded by individuals. Only the bigger AR rides are produced by Rouvy. So depending on how much effort the author of the ride spends on editing the ride. We have a group of Rouvy authors on Facebook.

I tried one yesterday that was done with video from a cyclist, something called alaska vogezy col de la schlucht, couldn't handle the continuous rocking back and forth of the video made me sea sick.
