I have found others problems to decode live TS streaming (UDP & RTP).
In my test setup I'm using a realtime h264 encoder that stream the
generated H264 transport stream (TS) via UDP & RTP, I'm using the
following XBMC live streaming XML:
<?xml version=3D"1.0" ?>
In both cases (UDP & RTP) the XBMC video player is black, but the
audio is ok.
CODEC =3D AVC/H264
bitrate =3D 5 Mbps
Resolution =3D 1920x1080i 50Hz
Codec =3D MPEG1 layer 2
I have tested two cases:
1) when the streaming is running, I can stop the player correctly.
2) XBMC player is running (no video, audio ok), then I stop the
streaming (UDP & RTP).
In this case if I try to stop the player, XBMC hang, and I must
reboot the system.
Seems to be a problem when we try to stop the video player in case of
error condition. In this case the system doesn't respond anymore.
