Known issues

  • On Xperia 10 III app suffers from memory leak. This problem does not occur on Jolla C and Xperia 10.
  • The delay in video strongly depends on buffering in the player. The lowest delay appears to be in VLC and Chromium. Firefox tends to buffer 30s before starts playback.
  • By default app streams in so called "fragmented" MP4 format. Some players have problems with understnding it. If you encounter this issue try to change format to MPEG-TS.
  • Video orientation switch does not work with MPEG-TS.
