    Had another suggestion for inclusion in RNP but the station does not play in LMS.

    Here is a URL that causes problems.
    The pre-roll ad (from adswizz) plays but it does not move on to play the stream - however, it does work in ffmpeg (but with some warnings issued).

    https://ais-sa3.cdnstream1.com/2442_.../playlist.m3u8

    The real URL that their web player uses has some tracking and other parameters in it ... which I probably could partially generate (I would not know the listenerid but could do the rest) ... but I do not think that is the issue because it worked in ffmpeg with just the URL above.

    The station is KMHD - https://www.kmhd.org

    Changing "playlist" to "master" does not work - streaming provider not using that convention.

    Edit:
    It was ffmpeg (ffplay) that I used. I did not try with mplayer (I run from a script and had forgotten which tool it was configured to use)

    I'll look into it, it may be using new HLS features. I did a lot of work on a PlayHLS V3 which handles some new features but haven't had time to get it into release shape.

    On Ubuntu mplayer is much inferior to ffmpeg for HLS. Useful to turn on ffmpeg "-loglevel info" to get info.

    As a workaround can the user play the plain AAC stream which has the same bit rate and audio code

    edit:

    HLS Stream plays OK for me on my CORE32 system with PlayHLS V2.9 but no ads so far.

    edit 2:
    It is a 48kHz stream - maybe ads are different and a "Delicious Agony" repeat.
    What player are you using - I'm testing with a SqueezeAMP.

    Great - that works fine.
    I should have experiment more to get the non-hls version.

    RNP successfully found the track and programme details.

    Good.

    I find many of the additional params on a URL found when playing in a Web Browser are for the browser based experience - so I always strip everything off as a 1st test.

    I'll test a bit more on to see why it doesn't play on your system and does on mine.

    Update - the broadcaster (a college in Oregon) recently launched an additional station.
    They do not have a web site for it yet except for the on-line player.
    LMS via PlayHLSv2 on RPi running pCP 8.2 struggles with it.
    It plays the first few chunks and then gives up (stopped).

    Web site - which is the player
    http://kmhd2.org/
    works fine in browser

    The URL that they launch the stream with is something like this:

    https://live.wostreaming.net/manifes...aac-hlsc1.m3u8

    which works in ffplay

    I tried some alternate forms of the URL - including using style used for non-hls streams that I have seen elsewhere - but I could not get another to work so maybe they have only enabled hls for this broadcaster.

    What version of PlayHLS ?

    They play OK for me on Ubuntu 8.3.0/ PlayHLS V2.9 on a Receiver.
    There must be something else in the mix causing the problem with PlayHLS.

    I'll see if I can find a PCP setup.

    edit:

    kmhd2 doesn't work for me on CORE32 - so something in my development system fixes it.

    Kmhd2 works for me on Pi Bullseye 8.3/PlayHLS v2.9 on a Radio. At first I was caught out by the truncated URL

    I thought it was working but LMS reports MP3 on the now playing screen and aac in "more info". It seems to play in short chunks in the wrong order until it stops.

    Phew. that is exactly what I see on CORE32 so I was worried.

    The stream is being played as a HTTP/MP3 stream and a playlist of each chunk. It is not recognised as HLS - something to do with MIME type or extension I think.

    I was just going to say the same ... I turned up the logging level on PlayHLSv2 (v2.9) and saw nothing ... so realised that it is not being called.
