@Minix: Why do streams (HLS) start so much faster with Lollipop?

    I use to watch some video (live-tv) streams, which are in HLS format through Mxplayer.
    These streams need ~5-10 sec. to start on the X8h+ with stock Kitkat ROM.
    But only 1-3 sec. under Lollipop.
    Tested on the X8h+ (with Lollipop Rom) and a similar S812 Android box, also with LP 5.1.1
    Anybody knows, what causes this different behaviour between KK and LP?
