@zipleen I have a few questions about the tvOS version. Hope you can clarify;
1: VLC network buffer. When it's set on 999 or 2000 or 3333. Every livestream channels starts as quick as possible so it looks like it doesn't use this buffer?
2: Default settings de-interlace mode [yes/no]. Which settings does it use when setting it to yes? I'm using PASS so on the server-side there is nothing setup. I've set some de-interlace settings in the tvOS client.
3: Sometimes a live stream (TS-stream) just freezes the stream on the tvOS client and does not continue. I'm using PASS and restart on error is Enabled. I think the connection to the live-stream maybe has some corrupted bits? Or maybe the client loses connection to the server? When stopping the channel and directly re-open it, it just works and continue the live stream. Are you familiar with this behaviour? That's why i was looking at the VLC network buffer :-)
Ah thank you. I thought 3333 was the maximum. Now i can see the difference.
I have de-interlace set to auto on the client. But at the server config (just below the VLC buffer) there is an option "Default setting de-interlace: yes/no". I set it now to No so i think it looks at the client settings now?
Okay, yeah sometimes i see the stream also go bananas but sometimes recover also. And sometimes i have a stream completely frozen but after re-starting it just plays again. Thanks for clarifying. Maybe with a future update of the VLCKit it will get solved
Yes, i'm local. TVHeadend server on Synology NAS with IPTV. AppleTV with local ethernet.
Ah, i though de-interlacing was done on the client because i was using pass :-)
I also have an account remotely which also shows sometimes the same behaviour. I know transcoding. Had the same issue with Plex. Transcoding on Synology is a no-go.
