Buffer (DVBlink for IPTV)

Postby brianjg » Wed Aug 16, 2017 9:34 am

I've added an IPTV source and it plays channels fine but my broadband isn't great and when watching HD channels I get buffering issues. Is there a way to get dvblink to buffer for X number of seconds before the stream is displayed to the clients? Is there a way to control this?

OK so I've hit a slight issue with this. I enabled the buffer option and that's working on the web client and dvblink player. I set it to 5 seconds.

But when trying to use this value Kodi17 and the dvblink and kodi player gives up before the buffering is finished. I tried to increase the timeout value in the kodi play options but it didnt work.

Any tips?

Try setting it to zero and see what happens :idea:

For IPTV you only need a minimum download speed around 10-15Mbit, because most IPTV providers broadcast their channels in low bitrates, with average of 2-5Mbit for most of their channels.

There is only one IPTV provider that I know of, that has 10-12 Mbit channels (only around 37 channbels yet), and they just started implementing that in their channel packages.

Maybe I misunderstood what the buffer function does. And yes my link is only 11Mbps. What I was trying to achieve was, dvblink would start the steam and buffer it locally for X number of seconds before starting the stream to the kodi client.

But when I monitor using the diagnostic section I don't any traffic starting to flow until the timer is reached.
