Kitkat HLS configuration

    Hello Guys.

    I hope you can help us solve the bugs in streaming.
    We introduced the first official kitkat firmwares for X5/X5min/X7/X7mini.

    You might noticed that inside the android settings there is a new option in Display settings called "HLS configuration" with the option to change to 0,1,2 and 3.
    ( Android Settings > Display > HLS configuration)

    We build this feature to make the firmware compatable with more streaming apps.
    Most apps will run just fine under the default ( 0 ).
    But when it does not you can try to set one of the other and see if your app will work.
    Mostly one configuration will work.

    What we would like to kow is;
    1. )
    Wich apps do not work with HLS configuration 0, and wich configuration they need to get working.
    Wich apps do not work at all.

    Can you guys post the link to the playstore or .apk file and tell us at wich configuration it works or if they do not work at all?

    We need this information to improve HLS configuration 0(default) to suite more apps so people dont have to switch.

    Thanks a lot.

    PS.. please do not post apps that work good under HLS configuration 0 to keep this thread clean.

    What about app combinations?
    For example:
    When I use MX Player directly, all is ok with HLS config 0.
    When MX Player is accessed via my Synology NAS through another app, ES Explorer or Synology DS video, I have to set HLS config to 2.

    Hi, I upgrade my Minix Neo7 to Kit Kat yesterday. 2 x Apps that were working on the previous firmware are not working correctly now. They are both Australian based television players. ABC's iview app has an audio / video sync issue. And Channel 10's TENplay app drops to a black screen with audio once the program starts playing, but is okay for the lead in advert. I haven't tried the other HLS configurations but will try them tonight with the apps and post. Sorry I am a new member and could not post links to the Apps in the Play Store .......
