@matb33 @TabloSupport So it seems the web player in the latest HTML app has introduced a minimum processor requirement. My win8 tablet running on a Intel Atom 1.33ghz 4 core can no longer play Tablo videos, either windowed or full screen… it just stutters at around 20fps (best guess), then the video will freeze outright as the audio continues, and within minutes my tablet gets quite hot.
I had some issues with Firefox browser as well… a page popped up and said that my browser is not supported. Firefox not supported??? It said Chrome or Safari…
@Thumbs we indeed experienced this issue when switching to a skinnable player (in order to add the skip buttons, chromecast etc). This particular player (called VideoJS) turned out not to implement hardware acceleration for video in their Flash player (Flash is needed for HLS decoding). So we ended up implementing it in a fork of the project, and we got it running at an equivalent speed according to our own tests, but we only went so low as a Core 2 Duo. It seems the work we did was not enough. We are actually exploring a whole other player altogether with support from a big company. I’ll post in this thread if the fit ends up working out and we implement it. It’s a fairly high priority item (and even higher now that you’ve confirmed the new player clearly isn’t as fast as the previous one).
I tested the new web app and playing on an I3 380m processor. Prior the video was fluid, the new player appears to stutter at times. Makes live tv look too much like an internet stream. Before, the video looked great.
@matb33 Thanks for the explanation an insight.
