Hey guys,
I am trying to write a service that converts a m3u8 link from youtube.
I am loading the stream info then setting all but 1 video and 1 audio
stream to AVDISCARD_ALL.
Everything works fine except after several seconds of playing av_read_frame
blocks for 30 seconds to a couple minutes.
I'm not the best versed in ffmpeg so I'm not exactly sure what to do from
Extracting one of these links into ffplay works fine it seems, but I don't
see what they may be doing differently? Im just hopeing you guys can point
me in the right direction of anything to try.
