Ts Dreambox Player 7.0-setup Version 11 ((FREE))
HTTP Live Streaming (also known as HLS) is an HTTP-based adaptive bitrate streaming communications protocol developed by Apple Inc. and released in 2009. Support for the protocol is widespread in media players, web browsers, mobile devices, and streaming media servers. As of 2019, an annual video industry survey has consistently found it to be the most popular streaming format.

HTTP Live Streaming provides mechanisms for players to adapt to unreliable network conditions without causing user-visible playback stalling. For example, on an unreliable wireless network, HLS allows the player to use a lower quality video, thus reducing bandwidth usage. HLS videos can be made highly available by providing multiple servers for the same video, allowing the player to swap seamlessly if one of the servers fails.
To enable a player to adapt to the bandwidth of the network, the original video is encoded in several distinct quality levels. The server serves an index, called a "master playlist", of these encodings, called "variant streams". The player can then choose between the variant streams during playback, changing back and forth seamlessly as network conditions change.
The Popcorn Hour A-110 media player may be good at playing back high-definition and high-bitrate content but in almost every other aspect, speed is definitely an issue. It seems to be quite picky when it comes to various popular video/audio encoding combinations. Be prepared to remux and reencode your existing content to different containers and formats to be able to play it on the PCH A-110.
Even though the A-110 is on the market for half a year, I feel like I trapped into the infamous early adopter trap. I was particularly misled by the positive reviews about the A-110. If you own Apple-related content like iTunes .MP3 files and handbraked .M4V DVD rips you better stay clear of this media player for now. The Popcorn Hour A-110 has way to go firmware-wise. I consider this a beta product at best.
its a tiny player but very very fast, process even faster i have max 15 GB video and this player play it like butter, fast foreword, resume play back, very nice main menu, menu is not better then ATV but i put posters in each folder and it display very nice,
I have tried iOS 15.1 beta on an iPhone 7. The DRM playback does not crash anymore, but there is no video, only audio.You can try all the players on this page, all play audio-only on iOS 15.1. (On 15.0 all crashed) -drm-demo/
