Try Kodi, there are probably several sports streaming plugins for it. You wouldn't need a browser for that.
i highly doubt there is a plugin for these websites. espn.com, nbcsports.com, bein, sky sports etc. probably have plugins, but not these sites.

Re: OMXplayer won't play content

here's an example of something that works noticeably poorly on chromium, which also has the same issue working in OMXplayer https://www.abbeyroad.com/crossing you can see noticeable stuttering and screen tearing when viewing the live cam. and sometimes, the cam won't even load and crashes with the "...

Re: OMXplayer won't play content

Sorry if I am offending anyone I am just frustrated. Not my intention to get anyone upset here.

I looked into Kodi but they do not have a fully functional browser correct? A fully functional browser is needed to view the content for which is 50% of the reason I bought the device unfortunately.

Re: OMXplayer won't play content

I am not accusing anyone. "just fine" doesn't include a shaky, studdering and flashing screen when watching content. if a user doesn't care that's one thing but i wouldn't call the operation "fine." I understand the price difference, however advertising it as equal or close to equal, as it seems to ...

Re: OMXplayer won't play content

I used that command and got HTTP error 403 not authorized. I am thinking there is no fix for this. I realize that the intent of the RBPi isn't for media streaming. However, if the hardware is up to the task, why hobble it with half-baked software? I understand that making X windows double buffered i...

Re: OMXplayer won't play content

no they aren't 4k. at best 1080p most of them are 720p. It almost seems as if the GUI player for the content isn't compatible. they are live streams after all, and not pre-recorded like a youtube video. does that make any difference? how do I check the format of the stream? I tried this originally b...

Re: OMXplayer won't play content

Yeah I did try that up to 640. It didn't really help much, and in fact if it's set too high the pages won't load and will crash Chromium. It's the fast movement and constant camera panning in sports which really makes the tearing noticeable. Also you have to be careful messing with that GPU split be...

OMXplayer won't play content

Greetings all. Got the RBPi 4 set up (4GB) in Raspbian Buster without much fanfare this weekend. In trying to watch some content in the Chromium browser, there is tearing. Come to find out this issue is "normal" and there are a couple workarounds for mainstream content, netflix BBC iplayer etc. Howe...

RPI4B as internet video streamer

Greetings all. Looking to use the RPi4 as a web streamer. Not necessarily youtube, but also various other services such as NBC sports, etc. Since a lot of these sites might require HTML5 or flash to run, just curious if the built in browser and device in general can handle this task? Any other cavea...
