Chciałem podzielić się moimi spostrzeżeniami na temat wersji VLC i streamingu. Z wersją 2.1.3 miałem problemy ze stabilnością streamingu bezpośrednio z satelity (brak płynności obrazu na niektórych kanałach SD, czasami problemy z dźwiękiem) a także zdarzały się problemy z materiałami nagranymi na dysku. Po zmianie na wersję 2.0.8 wszystkie problemy znikły. Zalecam także ustawienie Preferencje/Wejścia i kodeki/Użyj przyspieszenia dekodowania GPU oraz Domyślna metoda buforowania na Wysoka częstotliwość.
