    Ok after two days with all posible combinations of hardware and software i was able to play all German 1080p ac3 channels without buffering and vpn.

    In this experiment i have tried higly configurable version of Kodi which use custom player already compiled with aplication.
    You can even choose external DirectShow codecs etc.


    Wiki of this Kodi version can be found on this page http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=223175

    I have already preconfigured Kodi so you dont have to do anything but install it this way:


    Ok first install codecs http://files2.codecguide.com/K-Lite_Codec_Pack_1244_Full.exe

    After that delete your Kodi or move it somewhere, also move kodi folder from C:/Users/Yourusername/AppData/Roaming/Kodi

    Install this Kodi http://www.videohelp.com/download/KodiSetup-jarvis.dsplayer-final-02.20.2016.12.20.dx11.exe

    Delete C:\Program Files (x86)\Kodi
    then copy this Kodi folder to ‪C:\Program Files (x86) https://www.dropbox.com/s/dm22ol69gh6kfyv/Kodi.zip?dl=0

    Copy this to C:/Users/Yourusername/AppData/Roaming
    https://www.dropbox.com/s/bgmobl2iksmb74p/Kodi_Roaming.zip?dl=0

    Start Kodi
    Insert valid line into your Simple Iptv pvr
    Restart kodi
    Try some 1080p channel

    Let me know if it works for you as i dont have another workstation to test it on

    Ps. i will post screenshots of the settings later

    Hi,

    well I just installed it your way. What I noticed immediately is that the channels load up way faster than before. I guess because of the new player we are using.
    First, I tested RTL HD 1080p DE on the old kodi build to make sure it is buffering. Yes it was.
    When I started the Channel on the new build, video and audio were stuttering like crazy similar to the perfect player on windows. I assume it is their way to buffer the channel. The old kodi would show buffering from 0 to 10% then continue and one second later it would buffer from 0-10% again.
    So I decided to load it up again. It was running smooth for 3 minutes but started buffering again. EDIT: "but started STUTTERING again"

    Result: It went from kodi<perfect player to kodi=perfect player. Still buffering but a nice try.


    By the way, Sky Bundesliga 1 in 1080p is running flawless. It even was running perfect yesterday when Dortmund was playing, while PRO7 1080p DE was buffering.
    I hope this is enough proof that the problem is clearly not on our side.

    Update
    Ok, Here is fast howto guide Method 1 to watch 1080p on Rapidiptv without buffering with hardware accelaration and without vpn:
    This could work on android devices to but i did not have a time to test it.

    Who want to test on android should configure Kodi 16.1 with attached file advancedsettings.xml placed in Android/data/org.xbmc.kodi/files/.kodi/userdata/ .
    Note that advancedsettings.xml is configured to use 999 mb of ram so it will work only on boxes with 2 gb of ram.
    For boxes with 1 gb of ram please use advancedsettings.xml in advancedsettings500.mb.zip


    Download:
    Install this Kodi http://www.videohelp.com/download/KodiSetup-jarvis.dsplayer-final-02.20.2016.12.20.dx11.exe
    Unzip and copy attached file advancedsettings.xml to C:\Users\Yourusername\AppData\Roaming\Kodi\userdata\

    Then configure Kodi like in these pic guide or use guisettings.xml by placing it in C:\Users\Yourusername\AppData\Roaming\Kodi\userdata\ and it should be configured automatically:

    It recalculates frames per second from stream from time stamps. Options are:
    fps detection for video playback, 0 = trust codec fps, 1 = recalculate from video timestamps with uniform spacing, 2 = recalculate from video timestamps always

    No you can not becouse it is Kodi DSPlayer - DirectShow Player for Windows featuring madVR so it works only on windows.

    But for Android you can install Kodi SPMC https://github.com/koying/SPMC/releases/download/16.4.2-spmc/SPMC-armeabi-v7a_16.4.2.apk
    Then configure Kodi guisettings.xml and advancedsettings.xml by placing it in Android/data/org.xbmc.kodi/files/.kodi/userdata/ and it should be configured automatically.
    Note that advancedsettings.xml is configured to use 999 mb of ram so it will work only on boxes with 2 gb of ram.
    For boxes with 1 gb of ram please use advancedsettings.xml in advancedsettings500.mb.zip

    https://rapidiptv.com/attachments/advancedsettings500-mb-zip.272/
    https://rapidiptv.com/attachments/advancedsettings-zip.271/
    https://rapidiptv.com/attachments/guisettings-zip.273/

    Also on Amazon firestick as it is slow you can edit this line in advancedsettings.xml to drop some frames from the stream and have playback more fluent:

    <skiploopfilter>8</skiploopfilter>

    Very important: After every reboot of Android box you have to activate big tcp ip buffer size to eliminate buffering in Kodi and it works only on rooted boxes:

    Thanks for that. Now what do you do with kodi on linux? There is no madvr or DSPlayer. But there is a special build for Intels VAAPI which I already use. Do I just need to use your advancedsettings.xml now?

    To start with you can try advanced settigs and guisettings also. Also you can try some of android emulators for linux http://techapple.net/2014/05/5-best...xmintfedoraarchlinuxopensusemageiacentos-etc/

    and use all popular apps for Android ;)

    advancedsettings.xml was the thing to do.
    But after minutes it is buffering again. And my rig is not behind wi-fi or anything and I have 100 mbit so it rapidiptv isn't able to constantly hold a 1080 Stream. Some channels work fine, some are buffering constantly like Sky Atlantic HD 1080P DE
