Help with "Play in Browser" with web frontend

Post by freerj » Sun Sep 08, 2019 6:28 pm

Hi All,

Thanks in advance. I've been happily and successfully running myth since '04-'05 on Fedora, upgrading along the way. Recently work has taken me on the road a bit and I'd like to be able to use the http live streaming functionality in the web frontend. Unfortunately I haven't been able to get it working.

Here's what I'm seeing:

- Can open web frontend on port 6544
- Can see list of recordings and click on the "play button"
- Play as asx works for me when I'm on a high bandwidth connection;
- "Play in browser" opens a player page in my web browser and I see the thumbnail for the show in the player in the browser, but other than displaying the first thumbnail, nothing actually plays
- mythbackend log reflects:

2019-09-08 14:26:32.926171 W [13660/5161] HTTPLiveStream HLS/httplivestream.cpp:85 (run) - HLS(): Command '/usr/bin/mythtranscode --hls --hlsstreamid 15 --verbose general --logpath /var/log/mythtv --loglevel info' returned 140

which I'm not really sure how to decode.

Is there someone that could give me the first 5 things I should check / confirm to troubleshoot?
