Scheduled Player Package Stream

I have added a live stream to a content page with other data, the time is set to 2 minutes which the page does stay on for that long, but the stream stops after a few seconds.
Any ideas? Device is on WiFi, the wifi is stable

thanks in advance

Looks to be a bid temperamentally as working ok now, not sure if wifi or software. will it retry if the stream can not be reached?


I was using these BBC streams to test the streaming:

Obviously just use the url you need such as:

But yes, I’d recommend ethernet rather than wifi.

Hi. I am using the same url. Will see how it goes as I have no Ethernet access for the pi

Right now the stream isn’t retried if it breaks. I’ll add a retry later too.

Regarding streams: You can expect vastly different results depending on Wifi/Ethernet and the type of stream. HLS, those m3u8 Urls, use HTTP and therefore TCP and are less dependent on a perfect network environment. So depending on the bitrate, it might work on WiFi. With unreliable transports, like RTP over UDP you’re almost guaranteed to get a horrible result on WiFi due to packet loss.

Hi, is there any eta when you might be able to add the retry to the package for steams?
Many Thanks

Added. Let me know if that works for you.

If a configured stream finishes or runs into an error, it will now retry after 5 seconds.
