I have issues with VOD Server and using a direct copy from a stream provided from Svtplay.se . They are providing several live streams and some streams is shown perfectly while some is not and I can't find out what the difference are.

All streams are H.264 and AAC. Stream is fetched with livestreamer and put into FFMPEG to be converted to MPEG-TS, FFMPEG command is just -vcodec copy -acodec copy -f mpegts -
Reason for just wanting to do stream copy is to save processing power and also picture quality.


This stream works fine: svtplay.se/kanaler/svt2
This stream does not work: svtplay.se/kanaler/svt1

Both streams are HLS format

The problem is that I just get a black screen from the faulty stream but I can hear audio.

As the streams can't be fetched outside Sweden I recorded 2 samples, links below, the sample from SVT1 can't be played in WMP but the sample from SVT2 can be played.

Any help are very much appreciated.

    Hello

    Does the zip file include log files? They are the first thing I would want to look at. MediaPortal and TV Server log files.

    Regards,

    Note: I am able to play the SVT 2 sample in MP [1.7.1]. The SVT 1 sample does not play. Both samples play fine in VLC.

    @Owlsroost
    This looks like it could be a TsReader issue. Possibly related to detecting the video parameters and/or a safe entry point...

    Correct - it's not finding H.264 SPS/PPS it likes....

    @weekendowel - can you try the attached version of TsReader.ax please (v4.1.0.8, for MP 1.11 and later) ?
    (It plays both of your test files OK).

    To install, close MP, go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal, make backup copy of the original TsReader.ax file, and then copy in the new version. Start MP and test it :)

    Strange. The logs show no error and things should be alright. Have you tried another skin/theme instead WMC, e.g. Win10? I don't really expect a different result but worth a try. EDIT: I vaguely remember a problem with the dynamic refresh rate changer. Can you try to temporarily deactivate and try again? The other thing is the...

    BTW, realized I never replied back on this one, in case anyone else runs into it. @Stéphane Lenclud Got me pointed in the right direction. My TV Has an option HD Deep Color Mode, turning this on or off will get the desired results.
