Re: OMXplayer - how to choose better streams with m3u8 playback?

I'm currently puzzled as to how to instruct Raspbian to play a higher stream quality when given an m3u8 file. For example, when given: http://edge.metrotvnews.com:1935/live-edge/smil:metro.smil/playlist.m3u8 OMXPlayer always automatically get the worst quality (which is probably the first line in t...

So, I installed the entire script and everything ran as it should, including the animation at the end. HOWEVER, when I go to terminal and type in mpv followed by that web address, it will either tell me the stream is not availible (which is correct at the time of posting), or it will tell me that I...

Re: SOLVED: Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ Will Not Boot!

NOTE TO ALL READERS: This entire thread, which I started, only pertains to those with a "legacy" version of NOOBS. By "legacy", I mean a version that was made prior to March 14, 2018. That's almost a year ago at this point, so if you just got a brand-new Raspberry Pi 3B+ kit that came with a pre-in...
