Re: VLC testing

I downloaded vlc testing on December 11th as directed by changing the source repositories to testing which also brought updates to ffmpeg and chromium.

A minor bug, but perhaps indicative of a little problem on raspbian buster (on the Pi 3 B )is the following: On raspbian stretch, vlc will play the webm vp9 file listed below with at least the appearance of fluidity albeit at fairly high cpu usage ~ 70% ( mpv ~30%) whereas on raspbian buster vlc and...

Re: Watching live streams with the Pi, best way to do so?

Streamlink is a fork of livestreamer that unlike livestreamer is maintained and kept up to date. Its' default player is vlc. and the version currently in the raspian repository is hardware accelerated. I just tested your stream with streamlink and it works.
