Re: HLS Troubleshooting

I am using hls streams and on both a Roku Premiere/+ and am getting a lot of stops/buffering. Does the 8x10 second segments recommendation in the first post still apply?

Hi everyone,

I've developed a channel and recently I received a feedback from an user that he cannot play hls stream (he uses Roku Premier+). When the video loads 33%, it just returns. The user is nice enough to help me to troubleshoot by testing the video link with VLC and VLC can play it without any problem.
While I'm using with Roku4, Roku Express+ and Roku Stick, all of them are working fine so probably there's some problem with Roku Premier+? Any suggestion would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Alright, a folk find out that some stream type will not work if streamformat is not setup properly in Roku Premier+ while it's still playing in some other devices. Look at this link https://forums.roku.com/viewtopic.php?f=34&t=105889

hi, In a Multi-bitrate scenario, does setting the stream bitrate to a fixed number to speed up buffering prevent the roku from adjusting if the bandwidth changes, or does continue to auto adjust?

Hello everyone!!

I am attempting to play an hls video for a VOD type of a service.  However, the video is not playing smoothly at all!  It keeps skipping.  Does anyone know what I can do to get the video to play correctly?

Hello everyone!!
I'm trying to implement Live DVR with Seek option.

 - While start playing I check the position of the player and always is 0 (absolute). This mean I could not move the pos in past using seek method.
Please help me to find any solution  if this is possible ?

Thank You
IgorM

Trying to play the live stream (the live stream is a loop so it's always on which make it easy to test) referenced below always fails. The video player shows the loading bar and gets stuck there forever (tested with a Roku 4).

Sadly there is no way to observe network traffic out of the Roku video player so I can't even tell if the video player gets stuck loading the playlist, the chunk list or the first chunk

http://origin1-edge2.atl.yourstreamlive.com/live/yourstreamlive/amlst:out_3829_5z9xjsug/playlist.m3u8?output_stream_name=out_3829_5z9xjsug

Easy to reproduce simply with this MainScene.xml:


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>

<component name="MainScene" extends="Scene" >

<script type="text/brightscript">
<![CDATA[
function init()
    m.video = m.top.findNode("myVideo")
    m.video.notificationinterval = 1
    playVideo()
end function

function playVideo() as void   
  subtitle_config = {
      TrackName: "pkg:/captions.ttml"
  }
    vidContent = createObject("RoSGNode", "ContentNode")
    'vidContent.url = "https://roku.s.cpl.delvenetworks.com/media/59021fabe3b645968e382ac726cd6c7b/60b4a471ffb74809beb2f7d5a15b3193/roku_ep_111_segment_1_final-cc_mix_033015-a7ec8a288c4bcec001c118181c668de321108861.m3u8"
