Quality and buffering

Postby kevincork » Sun Jun 18, 2017 10:45 pm


When I stream some channel from VLC I have no quality buffering issue,

however when I try from DVBLogic or XBMC DVB Logic PVR, I have a very bad quality and buffering issue (freeze every now and again)

is there anything I can do for fixing that?

Many thanks in advance

Could it be that on the Kodi PVR Addon the transcoding and timeshifting are enabled. If yes, try to disable all or some of them and check how it work then.

I notice this too, that DVBLink Player/viewer always has problems the first 10-15 seconds when starting some FHD (1920x1080) IPTV streams....

DVBLink Player/Viewer buffers or shows artifacts, while VLC plays the same stream flawlessly straight away without buffering or artifacts :!:

So this is definitely a issue from "DVBLink for IPTV" and not from Kodi, because also when starting the same IPTV stream directly from a local m3u in Kodi, instead of the IPTV source, the stream also plays flawlessly straight away :idea:
