This IPTV Stream Won't Work

Post by drewsmith » Tue Jan 05, 2021 10:06 pm

I added this MRL to my m3u list and this one doesn't work: http://us1-external-sources.iptvserver. ... w4r4Qs/483

Works fine in VLC. Studying the mythbackend logs, I can see the difference in a working MRL and non-working, but that's as far as I can get.

Cheers!

Is this something that can get fixed? If someone could point me to the code files to look at, I could give it a shot.

I don't know about this particular feed, I can't get it to work at all even in vlc, but I'm aware of a problem with some feeds that get redirected to a new URL. If the chunks contain a partial URL then we should create the full URL from the base URL of the m3u and the partial URL of the chunks passed in the m3u file that gets downloaded. But if the m3u file gets redirected then I suspect we use the wrong base URL. At least that is my suspicion I could be completely wrong I just never found the time to fully debug it.
