Re: Streaming over vpn

Unfortunately, i had to watch it on a live stream. Although i download Kodi but it took so long before that the race was ending. So had to go on with the channel only although it lagged a lot and was quite frustrating.
I want to ask, that i have done installing Kodi on my Mac, now do i need to install some specific plugin or i just need to play?

Well, after you've installed Kodi vpn, you need to add add-ons, for sports, let's say SportsDevil is the most running add-on, just search it on google how to add XYZ add-on to Kodi and it will guide ya. After the add-on has been added successfully you can stream your favourite sports through it. But you've to check it if, what you're trying to stream is not region-locked, for that I would say use VyprVpn review :D

Vypr I believe does not give dedicated IPs on vpn. You have to talk to their support. Once updated, post it here as well

Re: Streaming over vpn

Asked their support this is what they had to say "we do offer VyprVPN Cloud to VyprVPN Premium and Business customers. This service can utilize a Static or Dedicated IP address"

Re: Streaming over vpn

I guess you are using a free VPN or a VPN that has slow server, try using a different server or a Fast VPN with fast servers best for streaming, without compromising on security. A fast VPN will make u recover from all lags and buffering issue, making your streaming experience better

Source: computer in my home network (internet: 200/20) -> Connection: vpn:pptp -> Destination: a friends home (internet: 30/3)

from my friends home i start up my laptop (running serviio) and connect to vpn. i already have the database scanned and everything in it. when im at my friends place, i can vieuw the list just fine... after a bit it starts streaming but then the problem accrues: after about 6 seconds the movie needs to buffer again and this keeps happening. when i try movies that are stored on my laptop itself, everything works fine. that would eliminate everything between serviio and the media player i guess...so the problem has to be around the vpn and input to serviio?

you may think internet is to slow to stream it... but this is not the problem because my upload is 20Mbit and my movies are lower. also when i stream them in vlc it works just fine. when i look at my internet usage it uses around 5 Mbit and other movies it doesnt go more then 3Mbit... so somehow it uses just a bit less then what the movie exactly is. is there a way to fix this?

i did try another media streamer and that one had the same problem.

i also tried using IP and mounted network folder but it didnt change anything with the performance.



which VPN do you use? i haven't found one good enough for me, yet.

Re: Streaming over vpn

When using Mediabrowser from a remote location (either through a VPN or not) what is the streaming protocol that is used? Is it RTMP or something else? Given that the file being streamed is of a fixed quality there is no need for an adaptive streaming protocol such as HLS or DASH.

Zip just answered in another post that the streaming protocol is HTTP.

Re: Streaming over vpn

HLS (over HTTP) is used for transcoded files. MP4 is not streamable format, so on-the-fly transcoding can only be done via HLS.
