    Is the update actually available yet?
    After forcing an update in MP1 I am still seeing Das Erste in the "Manage Sites" list and although Das Erste Live Stream in the ARD Mediathek is now playing with audio every time, which is a big improvement other, Live Steams, particularly BR still rarely play with audio. So not really sure if I got the update yet and it is just a coincidence that the Das Erste Live stream is now working better or more work is required?:unsure:
    Same with MP2
    Also NDR Live does not seem to be working at all.

    At least I removed the Parts in the code. Maybe @doskabouter knows where it needs to be removed as well.

    Regarding live stream and audio.
    Sometimes it helped to stop and start the same stream again, currently I am not sure where the issue comes from, as I reduced the code here to a minimum and provide the link directly to the filter for playing.
    Which also means that no quality selection can be made the quality is selected automatically by the lav splitter depending on the internet speed.

    Which also means if quality is bad, it might help to stop And restart the stream.

    The link itself seems to be correct as, the link from the log file can be pasted e.g. into VLC and it will start paying correctly.

    Nevertheless it is much better then before, but still not perfect. I will also try to analyze if we can find a solution here together with @doskabouter

    Yes, many thanks, strange with the audio, since the update so far Das Erste live stream always plays with audio on both MP1 and MP2 and the streams that are available in 1920x1280 all play at that though as mentioned previously BR Sud and others are often without audio, stopping and restarting the same stream does not seem to help, though closing and restarting MP does seem to on occasion for me.
    Thanks again and I'm sure you will get it fully resolved soon.(y):)(y)

    it is also really strange, for example here:

    on first load, no audio, directly open again sound is available.

    I am not sure what the codec exactly does with the provided playlist stream url.

    All audio is now working (MP2).:)
    I changed the setting in the LAV Splitter as shown below (default is 1000ms) and all live ARD Mediathek streams now have audio. I will try on my MP1 HTPC and also play with the number, as I suspect it does not need to be twice as long, and update here.

    I set it how to 1500ms and this seems to be okay for my network connection.

    I also increased the max queue length to 1024mb and the max queue packets.


    Now the only thing that's not working is the negative seek in das erste, as the stream could be seeked 2 hours before now. Unfortunately this is currently not working from ui I think.

    that is strange. I thought when there was no dll implementing that site, it shouldn't be in the list.
    I'll do a more indepth check one of these days...

    For me 2000ms is 100% reliable on my MP1 HTPC :cool: whereas 1500ms is mostly ok and much better than 1000ms but still occasionally plays a stream without audio but I did not try the que length and packet setting as per your change. I'll give it a try and let you know.

    Are all of them worth the effort of putting time in it?
    In other words: I'm not willing to fix the sites just for the sake of fixing it, but I when it is dearly missed or is a good addition to the MP community I can try some.

    Did a quick check and
    • tou.tv is canadian and only accessible from canada
    • ztele redirects to noovo.ca and couldn't find a video that is playable without an account
    • m6replay redirects to 6play.fr and needs an account for playback.
    So in the end I think those sites just need to be removed from the list of available sites, no?
