    Yes I know - but I wanted to get this thread up and running and get traffic away from BBCiPlayer thread.

    Any idea of the cutoff version ?
    I know 1.0 works - I thought somebody reported that 0.8.6 worked ?

    Also some build have different version number so any feedback on working Build dates may also be useful.

    It'll take a bit of time but I'm going to review previous posts and do posts on Troubleshooting and common issues such as on Pi, Squeezeplug, armv5 etc.

    This works perfectly on Intel / Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, including ending the process at end of stream.

    Good luck! The ffmpeg version business is a mess ...

    For those with the time and inclination, https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/CompilationGuide gives access to the latest ffmpeg. On a low-powered machine compiling can take hours, but it's a way of getting a current version.
    LMS 8.1 on PC, Xubuntu 20.04, FLACs 16->24 bit, 44.1->192kbps. 2 Touches & EDO.
    LMS plugin UPnP/DLNA Bridge to MF M1 CLiC (A308CR amp & ESLs) & Marantz CR603 UPnP renderers.
    Also Minimserver & Upplay to same & to upmpdcli/mpd PC renderers.
    Squeezelite to Meridian USB Explorer DAC to PC speakers/headphones.
    Wireless Xubuntu 20.04 laptop firefox/upplay or Android mobile with Squeeze-Ctrl/BubbleUPnP controls LMS/Minimserver.

    Working FFMPEG

    Expectingtofly had a working version for the PI

    I think the link still works and this worked a treat on my B+ PI

    AFAICT this proves that your ffmpeg is OK and can handles m3u8 AAC streams.
    I'll look back at your previous posts in the light of these test results and see if I can understand the issue.
    The "output.flac" file plays on all my Squeezeboxes at 1726kbps

    Thanks

    I'm moving my ongoing HLS plug-in problem to this thread to seek further advice. LMS recognises the stream, but will not play it and stops after a few seconds. After viewing my debug log bpa said

    It's been a while since I saw this sort of problem on Windows and I can't remember the usual causes.

    Can you make sure that the LMS application socketwrapper.exe is considered a trusted application (i.e. can do networking etc) by your Windows security s/w.
    Since then I have added ffmpeg and socketwrapper to the list of applications excluded from NOD32 content filtering and rebooted the server computer. I still have the same result, and I have attached this morning's debug log.

    I have noticed that when debugging is on I see a command window (ffmpeg?) open briefly when I try to play the stream, but not when debug logging is off. Just for info, probably not helpful.

    I really appreciate all the help and advice!

    PS This is on a Win 7 32-bit PC with a dual-core Atom processor.

    Years ago NOD32 had a bad reputation with regard to Socketwrapper especially as it did bad things to the MS protocol stack to provide its security.

    It is necessary to test whether NOD32 is the source of the problem or not and that can only be done by removing NOD32 and retesting - disabling does not work. NOD32 must be removed and system rebooted as when it is just disabled it used to leave code attached MS Protocol stack which messed up comms..

    If you want - try disabling first and then repeat test.

    Yes - I remember NOD32 causing me problems with the Spotify plugin at first. OK, I'll try removing it completely, but that is a job for tomorrow. I'll report back then.

    I looked at the Plugins folder for the HLS plugin by bpa but the directory appears to be empty.

    The plugin is checked in LMS and ffmpeg shows as the transcoding option.

    I'm not sure if this is causing my playback problems but thought I'd mention it.

    Zip of LMS directory contents attached
    Thanks
