Get the most of your STB's IPTV capacity

Now, you will be able to install External Player 3, which uses considerably less resources!

SamSamSam says:
"Please do not use standard player, standard and internal players based on E2 and I can not fix E2 player.

Please use external gstplayer in buffering mode.

You can change player under blue button."

So, now:

2) Install IPTV Player plugin via the link below or from your image's feeds if available (Plugins > Download plugins > Extensions)
Link >> IPTVPlayer e2 pluign


3) When you start the plugin (IPTV Player) you will need to continue with some additional installations

Keep:
-confirming all the suggestions, during the installation, which will also guide you to -installing the External Player 3 or External Gstplayer (once the installation finds ffmpeg in your Enigma2) and then
-update the plugin; after that
-configure it carefully (where to send buffering or where to record, how to deal with External Player 3 - render AAC sound via SW etc.).

4) Update iptv player to ensure you have the latest version.

5) Before choosing an IPTV channel (say, in Web Stream > FilmOn > BBC1, for instance) or what to playback over home network (Media section), one can choose the preferred player, using the blue button menu! With or without buffering etc.

6) Known issues, as of right now

SH4 version is more advanced and covers more codecs! However, fewer codecs are supported by Mipsel version of ffmpeg/ExtPlayer 3, when IPTV Player v. 82.01.01.00 was published (these may change over time, of course!):

- AAC
- AC3
- MP3
- MPEG
- MPEG2
- H264

Thanks to gorski for the original version of this guide.

Tested on a VU+ Solo2 running OpenVIX 3.2 #21
