ANSWERED Live TV Spinning Wheel

Recommended Posts

shadowtek

Hi Guys,

 

I am trying to integrate Live TV working on my Emby Server run on my QNAP TS-453A. 

 

I am located in the Norther Rivers of NSW in Australia and i sourced this below data from http://i.mjh.nz/au/Sydney/

 

I am using this file for my M3U Tuner https://shadowtek.com.au/au-iptv.m3u and this for my EPG https://i.mjh.nz/au/Sydney/epg.xml

 

When i load these same file on other apps like VLC and IPTV on xbox one they work no issues. I am very new to trying this stuff so please bare with me :)

 

Emby Server is v 4.3.0.2 and i have the Emby Premiere activated

 

I would appreciate any guidance from this awesome community

 

I was not  sure what logs to attached so let me know if they are incorrect pelase

 

TIA

Remembering that I've never used a QNAP anything and don't live in Australia, and before people answer who know what they're talking about, just wondering if your guide shows up ok, or put another way, are the channels mapped (the channels in the guide have been pointed to the channels themselves) ?

Hi and thanks for the reply.

 

Yes the guide and the channels are appearing as expected and i have checked the mappings. To the best of my knowledge these set. See screenshots

So you're using Matt Huismans stuff. I use some of his stuff in NZ and it generally seems to work.

 

For my iptv am using http://i.mjh.nz/nzau/raw-tv.m3u8

 

Am wondering if maybe the raw-tv bit (you aren't using ones meant for Kodi or something ?) or the m3u8 bit (not just m3u) might be relevant somehow ?

Yeah i am using his stuff, been pretty solid for some years now.. Just having difficulties with integrating it with Emby..

 

My m3u is a direct copy of his http://i.mjh.nz/au/Sydney/raw-tv.m3u8

 

Do you have anything set as your User Agent in TV source setup? Like VLC for example

Are there any Aussies using a PAID or Premium service to get channel lists and EPG? If so any recommendations?

Sounds like you know what your doing a lot more than I do. Thats my way of saying I've no idea what a user agent is.

 

At the moment I'm actually using NextPVR for dvb-s and iptv in NZ and a NextPVR plugin to get that stuff into Emby. I did have Matt Huismans iptv stuff in Emby directly and it worked though. I think I took a direct copy of the NZ versions of your source and the only thing I changed was to add channel numbers so they didn't conflict with the dvb-s ones.

 

Might have been the attached file, but I seem to have lots of variations...

Think a few Aussies go for Ice TV.

Isnt this just a EPG provider?

Ah yes, sorry, obviously didn't read the question properly.

 

I imagine there are, maybe not roused from their slumbers possibly ?

@@shadowtek can you try lowering the video player quality setting to a low enough value that it does a full transcode? Please see if that helps.

 

I think ultimately the answer is we should be transcoding this h264 source stream.

Thanks @Luke for the reply....

 

This might be silly but how do i select the transcode quality? All i get is a spinning wheel with no options. and there is nothing under the transcoding options in the back end

 

This is what it get

Click your user icon in the top right and just set your playback quality to something like 3 mbps. hopefully that will be low enough.

In two of those ffmpeg logs the streaming appears to have worked just fine.

 

Didn't you see anything?

 

What happens when you try watching those streams from a browser on a desktop OS?

Hi @softworkz 

 

Thanks for your reply.. No i didnt see anything.

I have tested on

-Web Safari, Chrome and Firefox on a Mac

-Ios Devices both ipad and iphone

-Xbox one which is my main viewing source

 

All these devices had different playback settings so i changed them to @Luke suggestions. Still no joy

Are those streams free or protected in some way? 

Would I be able to reproduce this from my location (non-AU)?

Maybe I could try some of your AU stuff as well. Some of them work here in NZ (and some don't) so maybe if you could mention specific channels tried or post specific m3u8's ?

This seems to be playing h264 ok in Chrome, though it may not be exactly the same stream. EDIT - though it is via NextPVR v5.

Try the native support. That makes the comparison apples to oranges.

Different container. Wonder if they're different streams of the same stuff. Oh well...
