LiveTV changes: calls for testers

Post by jyavenard » Thu Feb 27, 2014 10:59 am

Hello

Several changes were made in order to improve and fix most current issues related to using live TV

Those changes includes:
- Reduce lots of messages in backend about waiting for data
- Rewind/Forward improvements. Can now seek across the entire live TV session
- Frontend exiting playback at random
- Playback freezing from time to time when close to live

Those changes are currently in master only and are planned to be backported.

However, as it involves critical changes, we would like the new code to receive as much testing as possible.
If you compile from source you can use the branch devel/027candidates

Code: Select all

$ git clone https://github.com/MythTV/mythtv.git
$ git checkout devel/027candidates
$ cd mythtv/mythtv
...
Areas of testing:
- Streaming data over various network configurations: wired and wifi
- Watching LiveTV.
- Pause/Rewind/Forward liveTV and various seek amount (several minutes jump etc)
- Watching various recordings and videos from video library from various bitrates.

thank you in advance for your help
