Live TV M3U Streaming Drop Out

Recommended Posts


Hi guys,

I'm having trouble with live TV M3U streams regularly dropping out while watching via Emby-stream stops and the user is placed back on the guide screen.

It occurs on all devices, regularly but at sporadic timing (anywhere from 30 seconds to an hour) and does not occur when direct streaming the source link with VLC.


I have attached associated server and ffmpeg log files, any help would be much appreciated!

Hi, just for testing purposes, if you disable hardware trancoding in the server transcoding settings, does that help?

Please try lowering the in-app quality setting in the android tv app and see if that helps. thanks.
