Video playout is Jerky/Shakey when playing 1280 x 720 video
Launching a new App with Amazon for TV/Video services. Having problems with jerky/shakey video when playing 1280 x 720 video. My analyzer shows that the stream playout is only playing out at 1.5 meg, which is not enough bandwidth to play and HD stream. Is Amazon throttling my streams or is this a device limitation on the Firestick/Fire TV? We are encoding video in HLS format, High Profile, at 4 meg, 3.2, 2.4, and 1.6 meg.
The app is called boingo TV, it is only available to customers on Military bases, so hopefully you can access it. We have created a lower end profile 640 x 480 so video will work on the Firestick. Please go to channel 259 NFL HD, i will set that channel to 1280 x 720 so you can see the problem on the Firestick/FireTV, video problems are more visible on the Firestick.
I looked at the code you posted, and don't see anything obviously wrong, but I'm not familiar with the fokuson player. We have our media specifications on this page:
https://developer.amazon.com/public/solutions/devices/fire-tv/docs/media-specifications, but those settings seem within the suggest values. I'm very curious what specific implementation the fokuson player is using, as that seems like the point where these issues are occuring. -Nick
