    Default OK2 service - OK2 apk vs Perfect Player apk

    I have Ok2 service and it works fine with the OK2 custom app (which is modified Perfect Player). I have a generic Android TV box, just with Remote Control (no mouse or keyboard)

    But the OK2 app is old and the new Perfect Player has preview option which shows a very small TV image in the EPG screen and also has more date on each specific show (ie not just the title)


    But I cant get Perfect Player to work right. It doesnt show the EPG information (just blank times for all channels). Even though I have tried update a number of times and the update seems to bring in data with the whiote bar along the top right (36967 elements) And when I press the side arrows on my remote (which on the OK2 app takes me from "All Channels" to sub channels like "English" I instead get the guide doing a page up or page down.


    Any thoughts - why cant I import the EPG. And can I get at the sub channels some other way or remap my remote control arrow keys (but they shift me to the sub channels in the Ok2 app)

    And yes I have reset the box, forced apps to close down and restart etc...…

    On Perfect player, I use the following URL for OK2. The m3u_plus option on the Playlist URL is mandatory. If you just use the m3u option, it will not load the tvg id tags, and will not be able to pair up the EPG with the actual channel list.

    Code:
    Playlist URL – Replace the xxx with your account username and password
    http://ok2.se:8000/get.php?username=xxx&password=xxx&type=m3u_plus&output=ts
    
    EPG URL – Replace the xxx with your account username and password
    http://ok2.se:8000/xmltv.php?username=xxx&password=xxx
    However, having said that, lately I've been having an issue with the OK2 apk itself, and very often I need to try to refresh 4 or 5 times for it to update anything. I often get "nothing updated" in the evenings. during the day it is not an option. However Perfect Player works fine (admittedly, a lot longer to load up).

    Anyhow, my buzz xpl 3000 has finally been ordered, so soon I will hopefully no longer have these issues

    Thanks I was just given the m3u without the plus, I have now input both the playlist URL and the EPG URL and everything is good.

    BUT SLOWWWWW. Perfect Player does take a long time to load the EPG and channels and also just to work through the menus

    Can someone explain the difference between output=ts vs output=m3u8 and which should be used when?

    Using output=ts the m3u file (playlist) you get from your provider will have all a bunch of .ts links, which are Transport streams for mpeg streams.
    ex:
    Code:
    part of the m3u file:
    
    #EXTINF:-1,MyCHANNEL (FR)
    http://server.me:8000/live/MyUsername/9442/6969.m3u8
    Using m3u8, it generates links with m3u8 files instead. m3u8 files are plain text files, which are playlists. This can be handy for a service which has multiple possible streams for the same channel. Your media player will read the m3u8 file, and then will open it to read the links to the streams.. If one fails, it can skip to the next one for redundancy.

    In cases where servers only have a single stream source for each channel, then using output=ts will be a little quicker in the channel changes, since it will have the stream link directly from the m3u file. If you use output=m3u8, when you change channel, it would get the link to the m3u8 file as the source, and then open that file, to get the actual stream (would would probably be the same .ts file). So there is one more level of redirection.

    m3u8 files can be handy for back-end systems that have identical ts links for all their source streams (ie: not username in the path). This way, the m3u8 file can be protected by username/password (so unique to each user), but when opening/processing the m3u8 unique files, they'd point to the same stream.

    For live TV, other than redundant links, I don't see any other purpose for .m3u8 files other than some media players have a preference for them. For movies/vod however, it can be that the movie is broken up into multiple parts, and in the m3u8 file, it compiles a playlist in the order that the parts are to be played. So when it opens the m3u8 file, it knows which files to play in which order.

    Yes, this is a paid version feature.

    From perfect player web site:

    Change log v1.4.8.1:

    - Added “Preview” option in channels list context menu
    Show currently playing channel preview and additional EPG info in all view modes
    (Full version feature)
    - Bugfixes

    In perfect player, in settings I think under GUI, there is an option near the bottom to the effect "Show channel Groups as Folders" or something similar. I'm not in front of it, but I think it is the second to last option. That should do it.
