Cant play some h264 multicast streams

Hello,

I am trying to play some mpeg transport streams and I am having trouble with some of them.

I was using OSMC 2016.9-1 in both Raspbery Pi 2 & 3

The streams come from DMP devices from a Chinese manufacturer:

http://www.digisat.org/wellav-technologies-dmp900-high-density-digital-media-platform

All the streams are properly displayed using VLC in windows.

After testing several distributions, I have installed a raspbian with command line omxplayer and I have found the following:

have a nice day :wink:

I do not have a single clue, as I can not find any difference. Same multicast groups accessed from VLC (Windows) and a third party android IPTV Box, work perfect.

Any help? I could try to upload stream samples.

Thanks in advance,

Miguel

*** UPDATE ***

I have installed pwomxplayer (An old fork from omxplayer for a videowall project - http://dl.piwall.co.uk/) and that command line player properly displays the stream.

Would it be possible to tell the IPTV Simple Client (PVR addon) to use this binary to play the Live TV streams somehow?

That solution would resolve my actual problems.

I know I can switch between OMX and MMAL (dvdplayer) in settings interface, but I cannot figure out how to use this binary to play the Live TV streams.

Any help?

Thanks in advance,

Miguel
