Apple's HLS doesn't work on LG WebOS TV emulator 2.0

4 posts in this topic

Hello,

I am able to playback VOD content on WebOS TV emulator 2.0 using my iOS app.

However, when I am trying to playback LIVE stream, I don't observe changes on the emulator. 

I am using Connect SDK for iOS. 

 

I read that mime type should be "video/hls" - but it didn't help to me.

Also, I saw that it's possible to playback HLS using web app on real TV. 

 

How to play LIVE stream on the emulator using Connect SDK ? 

Where can I get Emulators' logs to understand what is happening?

 

Thx

OK accoring with FAQ it is possible to play HLS, see please 

 

http://developer.lge.com/webOSTV/common-page/faqs.

 

Also it is said that CODECS should have one value for audio-only streams.

 

In my case the file(playlist) is:

 

#EXT-X-STREAM-INF:PROGRAM-ID=1002,BANDWIDTH=220000,CODECS="mp4a.40.5, avc1.42e01e"  ### -- 2 values not audio only stream
#EXT-X-STREAM-INF:PROGRAM-ID=1002,BANDWIDTH=370000,CODECS="mp4a.40.5, avc1.42e01e"
#EXT-X-STREAM-INF:PROGRAM-ID=1002,BANDWIDTH=700000,CODECS="mp4a.40.5, avc1.42e01e"
#EXT-X-STREAM-INF:PROGRAM-ID=1002,BANDWIDTH=64000,CODECS="mp4a.40.5" ###- audio only stream with one value
 

 So it should work, branches with 2 CODECS are not audio only streams, the last line displays audio only stream with one CODEC.

 

Why it doesn't work?

Following the first link for video bandwidth 

 

#EXTM3U
#EXT-X-MEDIA-SEQUENCE:5230924
#EXT-X-ALLOW-CACHE:NO
#EXT-X-VERSION:2
#EXT-X-KEY:METHOD=AES-128,URI="http:/ddd/hls-key/k.bin",IV=0X722d0490d992251e99f94b7dd83fb60c
#EXT-X-TARGETDURATION:8
#EXTINF:8,
../../../../hls-live/streams/livepkgr/events/_1323_/1323/1323-20Num5230924.ts
#EXTINF:8,
../../../../hls-live/streams/livepkgr/events/_1323_/1323/1323-20Num5230925.ts

 

#EXTINF:8,
 
And audio only stream has similar structure:
 
#EXTM3U
#EXT-X-MEDIA-SEQUENCE:5230948
#EXT-X-ALLOW-CACHE:NO
#EXT-X-VERSION:2
#EXT-X-KEY:METHOD=AES-128,URI="http:/ddd/phls/3m/hls-key/k.bin",IV=0X722d0490d992251e99f94b7dd83fb60c
#EXT-X-TARGETDURATION:8
#EXTINF:8,
../../../../hls-live/streams/livepkgr/events/_1002_/1002/1002-20Num5230948.ts
#EXTINF:8,
 
 
But for some reasons I am not able to play LIVE stream on the simulator ((

Logs are located under Logs folder according with installation (see simulator shortcut), but even from a log file I don't get why it is not able to play HLS

      Hi,
       
      Just trying to get a clear picture on what Adaptive Bit Rate (ABR) content formats are supported and what DRMs are supported for each content format on LG Webos smart TVs.
      I am wondering if the  information on  http://webostv.developer.lge.com/discover/specifications/webos-tv-platform/supported-media-formats/  is up to date, as if so then LG is so far behind the market...
      I'll list my questions:
      1. the page says that HLS is supported, but only with Verimatrix. is this true?
      2. the page does not specify that HSS or DASH are supported. is this true?
      3. the page says that WV is supported only its "classic" version and not the new "modular" version. is this true?
      4. the page says that PlayReady is supported, but there is no mentioning of which content format it can be supported with. Does someone know the answer for this?
       
      Thanks for any info on this.
      M.

      Hello guys,
       
      I have LG 42lb631v, and all the time, playback freezing while playing HLS after 10,20,30 or 40 min.
       
      It's not depend, I'm watching video in native browser or app (like Smart IPTV player)
       
      After some time of playback, video just freezing up, with status "buffering"
       
      I check all hardware (router, internet connection, hls stream...) - all is fine, I'm watching the same stream in IPad without any problem, but LG playback freezing all the time.
       
      It's really annoying me at the moment.
       
      I have last firmware version  1.3.1-3220 (afro-arches)
      It's happening with all streams, but you can test it for example from here:
      (I'm using NASA public stream)


      http://public.infozen.cshls.lldns.net/infozen/public/public/public_400.m3u8


       
      My TV connected though wifi .
       
      P.S. Earlier I have tested TV, with ethernet cable, and playback was fine about 2-3 hours. Better, but not to be good
       
      Is this problem only on my TV ? Or somebody seen the same problem ?
