Why does MPEG-TS suppose to improve Kodi’s streaming?
Well.. lets not get into too much details but all we can say is that Kodi’s handle MPEG-TS in much better way than HLS,
which helps to maintain good performance between the client and the server.
ITS HIGHLY SUGGESTED TO SWITCH TO MPEG-TS STREAMING TO AVOID UNNECESSARY BUFFERING/FREEZING. THIS SHOULD GREATLY ENHANCE THE USER EXPERIENCE !!!
To do so:
*You must have ApolloGroup addon VERSION 3.6.9+ to have that option, reboot your device to let the addon update to the latest version.
1. In Kodi go to the ApolloGroup menu, and go into TOOLS.
2. Under the Apollo tab, Scroll all the way down and click on “Live TV Format”
3. Instead of HLS choose MPEG-TS.
4. Make sure you chose MPEG-TS as shown in the picture, once confirmed click “OK” on the right side.
And that’s all, once you do that your streaming will work on the MPEG-TS format.
In case choosing this format gives you some issues, please revert back to HLS.
