[FFmpeg-user] ffplay struggling with this station!

I just realized that the station was public, so I just tried:
% ffplay -nodisp -vn "https://jrtv-live.ercdn.net/jrradio/englishradiovideo.m3u8”
no issues.

Yeah also update the tls library before building and if that still doesn’t fix it it might be the connection speed?

> Also, I’ve noticed that vlc had a 1000 ms “network cache”, and I wonder if that had anything to do with playing that station flawlessly. 

That probably means something like it’s’ playing 1 second in the past, so if something happens and it can’t keep up in realtime there’s still 1 second to fix it before it skips.
