    Hi

    Is there any prerequisites for the sky go streams to play?
    I can play via the sky website on IE and Firefox but within online videos I press play and it flashes the desktop before returning back to MP

    Iplayer, ITV etc all work in OnlineVideos

    Edit: Running MP 1.7.1 and Online Videos 1.8.1

    Thanks
    Ian

    Have you added in your username and password in the online videos configuration for the SkyGo site?

    @Jason Pyke Is it possible that amazon prime could be supported in a similar way to what you have done with Sky GO? :)

    It may be possible, I'd have to look further. The only problem is that I don't have a prime account, but I think I can sign up for a 30 day trial. I'll see if I can look later in the week.

    Thanks Jason, you're a star :) Thought I would mention it as it appears to use the same silverlight browser player so hopefully it would be possible.

    Hey @Jason Pyke

    I've recently come back to try Sky GO and I still have issues with movies playing back with slight judder. It's almost like the refresh rate is out. Do you know what frame rate the streams are in so maybe I can look at matching up the display?

    Also I seem to be having issues with the Live TV. The channels icons load up but when I select a channel the browser opens and I see the spinning counter icon thing, but then it's a plain black screen. Moving the mouse doesn't display the silverlight player controls or anything its just plain black. It's a case of press stop or escape to return to OV.

    Just clearing out my logs and making some new ones now. Thanks :) (Latest OV and MP 1.8 btw)

    I tried to open MTV and Sky Sports 1 and both gave blank screens - then took the logs. Both of these work when launching from the Sky GO website. Theres some OV XML errors in Mediaportal.log maybe that is the cause?

    I have also made sites with the browser player. The following settings works ok with Viaplay (also Silverlight)
    • Turn on hardware acceleration in silverlight settings
      • Open "Microsoft Silverlight Configuration" in elevated mode (right click and run as administrator)
      • Playback tab
      • Check hardware acceleration
    • Reduce frame rate when not being in focus
    • Set a 50Hz refresh rate in your graphic settings (PAL content)

    Thanks Ministerk. I didn't have reduce framerate when not in focus selected so will see if that helps the playback.

    Don't suppose you use this site? Does Live TV work for you?
